Love Your Pets

If you've been reading or following me on Instagram for any length of time, you know I've got pets, and I absolutely adore them. My dog is like my little brother (He's my dad's dog), and I've got two cats of my own (though Henry prefers my dad to me), plus my mom's cat, who used to be my sister's. We love our pets in this house.

Sometime last year, Jane started developing a skin condition (which I think was also a nervous tic), which made her groom excessively, and she would even bleed from her abrasions. I was at my wit's end, worrying about her. We later discovered that switching her to a grain free food helped a lot. Since then, I've been interested in learning about pet health to really make them as healthy as I possibly can. I lost a dog to gastric torsion about five years ago, and I've read that diet is a leading cause.

That's what makes treats like Evanger's Beef Hearts pretty great. They're just sliced, dried beef hearts, no …

The Jane Austen Book Club: Sense and Sensibility

Most people's first foray into the world of Jane Austen is Pride & Prejudice. I suppose mine was too, in the form of the PBS show, Wishbone, in their episode "Furst Impressions."

Considering it was as bare bones as could be, for a twenty-minute children's show, I didn't get much out of it, except that Wishbone can pull off any look.

Around the same time, the film version of Sense and Sensibility starring Emma Thompson and Kate Winslet came out. I'd seen previews for it on the super old school TV Guide channel (previously known as the Preview channel), and thought it looked interesting. I bought it on tape at Best Buy, and watched it. I didn't really understand it, but something resonated with me in this story.

I felt connected to both sisters. To Marianne's thirst for a dramatic, romantic life, but Elinor's more guarded nature. It took many viewings of this film for me to truly understand everything that was happening, to peel back all the lay…

Blog Analytics

Sorry I disappeared after talking about Jamberry last month. It's been nothing, if not a whirlwind. It's been great, actually. I had the highest sales for my team, I earned my first Fast Start with a lot of sales, a finished party, as well as my first recruit, and I'm well on my way to succeeding. I couldn't be more excited about it!

Unfortunately, with a new adventure, my blogs suffered. I haven't written anything here, or on B3 since I announced Jamberry, and for that, I am VERY sorry. Believe it or not, I did NOT forget The Jane Austen Book Club. I finished Sense & Sensibility this last weekend, so my thoughts will be there later this week, and I've also written more on my story on Wattpad, so if you're curious, feel free to check that out!


Now, the title says today's long overdue post is about Blog Analytics. I started keeping track of what my blogs and social media accounts were doing over the course of the months. Being as it's March now, …
