Why Portia?

Why Portia? I’m glad you asked. I was hanging out with my squad one night and we were taking Buzzfeed quizzes (because how else do you pass the time in this day and age?) and “What is your “Hunger Games” Character Name?” quiz was one that we took. My results? Portia freaking Bridgewood. When your Hunger…

Without Limits, With All Your Heart

This weekend’s homily was pretty fire, not gonna lie. (Okay, okay. I know it’s Wednesday. Mass was FOUR DAYS ago. But, I’m still thinking about it, so you know it was really good.) Father Mike was all about the forgiveness of your neighbor for anything wrong they have done to you.  “Forgive without limits. Forgive…

Dustin’ Off the Ole Blog

It seems that all my blog posts start out the same way. (Is this all of you patiently waiting for me to update with another post? I’m sure it is. It has to be, right?!) I’m so terrible at getting my thoughts written down for the blog. I promise I think about writing on here…

2017 Reading List

The Aviator’s Wife Melanie Benjamin Goodreads: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ Portia Bridgewood: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ I must admit this book was fantastic. I was hooked from page one. I took this book everywhere I went in hopes that I could get a few pages read in the spare moments of my day. The Aviator’s Wife is all about Charles Lindbergh’s…

2017 Goals: A New Year’s Resolution Story told 5 months late

I want to spend more time with Jesus. I have tried to turn off the T.V. and music more throughout my day. I think our society has become scared of silence and doesn’t spend enough time emotionally recharging. Part of my silent time is spent strengthening my relationship with Christ and part of it is…

The Adventures of an Ad Grad in KDG

Hey, all! It’s me. I’m back. (el oh el, how many times can I say this on the blog before I actually buckle down and post on a regular basis?) This time, readers, I have some pretty exciting news to share with you since we last chatted. I’ve made five blankets, graduated from college, said RIP to…

PSA

This message is brought to you by Portia Bridgewood. I need to ask a favor of you all during this December stretch of festivity. Why, you ask? It’s all for a good cause, I can promise you that! The other day, I was pondering my post-grad life over a cookie Mama Hays made for me….

Summer Was Helpful

As the summer comes to an end *cries enough tears to fill up a pool. Tears are not caused from lack of excitement for school starting, but because starting class means 9 months closer to becoming a grown-up and I’m not ready for that*, I spent some time reflecting on all I did this summer….

April Showers Bring May Dates.

Yeah, I bet you thought this was going to be a post about all the hot dates I’ll be going on in the month of May, didn’t you? HA. Don’t get your hopes up, people. These May dates are bigger and better than those hot dates (I bet my mom disagrees with this statement) and…
