The time is finally (almost) upon us: we’re headed home to California next month. I feel like even writing that line may jinx Tom’s progress, forcing us to stay here for longer than anticipated. The weather has been our enemy the past few weeks, with lots of clouds and storms during Tom’s flight period and… Continue reading Wrapping Up Alabama
A lot of other people I follow on Instagram seem to share the same sentiment as me, but social media increasingly feels like a black hole. I’ve seen people take the weekends off, delete the app and have to re-download to limit mindless scrolling, turn on airplane mode when working, etc. I took this past… Continue reading New Year Musings
My simple and sustainable morning routine.
It feels like everyone is going through it right now. Normalcy has been tossed out the window and each day is spent grasping at strands to weave it together again. There has been so much change, monumental change, in such a short amount of time – yet somehow, change still isn’t coming quick enough. The… Continue reading On Soft Love
I took my first pandemic vacation to Tennessee and North Carolina.
I am trying to be more intentional with the routines I implement in my life, because consistency has always been something I’ve struggled to follow.

I have tried GF, DF, vegetarian, vegan, but none of those diet shifts seemed to help. I’ve always eaten relatively healthy, too,… Continue reading What is low-FODMAP
I can’t believe it’s already July. Quaran-time has been such an interesting new aspect – where February seemed long, and March seemed never ending, but April, May, and June seemed to have been squished into the confines of one calendar month. At least that’s how I feel. In February, just before Valentine’s Day (pre-COVID-19), I… Continue reading Getting Here
My name is Paige. It’s July of 2020, I am 23 years old and living in Enterprise, AL although I’m a Southern California native. I’m here with my partner, Tom, a handy leather worker (check out @duckstreetleather on Instagram), Second Lieutenant in the National Guard, and a flight student at Fort Rucker, as well as… Continue reading Hello Internet
