Until three years ago, I had never heard the term “narcissist.” I also didn’t realize emotional or psychological abuse existed. I grew up in an environment where this type of abuse is pretty normal. It was only after I met someone who displayed many of the traits of narcissists, that I began to consider the fact that there exists a sort of evil in the world that nothing could have prepared me for. by gina

Spiced Apple Chutney | A few years ago I made a recipe for an cranberry apple chutney. It was a delicious dish that paired perfectly with Thanksgiving turkey. Plus it was a nice change of pace to the normal plain Jane cranberry sauce. If you have never had a chutney before it’s a lovely chunky condiment that has a nice vinegary bite. | By: NutmegNanny.com by kaye

My mom passed away two and a half years ago. She used to send my brother and I cards whenever she went away on business trips and she’d sign every one the same way. I got this at Curious Tattoo in College Park, Maryland. Ryan did an amazing job reproducing my mom’s handwriting. I could not be happier with the way this turned out and I am excited to have a piece of her with me at all times. by shopportunity

I grew up in Yosemite National Park and my parents moved from there a few years ago. I miss it A LOT and so I went back recently and took a fragmented panoramic shot of Yosemite Falls. I love waking up and seeing a photo of the waterfall I used to see outside my bedroom window every morning. I had the whole thing printed/framed by an amazing company called Livestock that makes printing an framing large scale art SO easy.

GHOST GIRL! This is a photo taken in my grandparents backyard in the mid 70's. It was a birthday party for one of my aunts and there were a lot of kids around. When going through the photos a few days later when they were developed, everyone saw this face at the bottom of the photo but no-one knew who it was. That was until my grandma had a quick look and said "Oh, that looks like Maree." Maree had died about ten years prior to this photo being taken. by florence

I got on this ferry to an island a couple weeks ago. I had planned to be on one the day before and then I planned to be on the one that left before this one. But by the time I got on this third ferry in the lineup of ones Id planned to be on the sun was shining a strong golden hue unusual for this time of year in the northwest. For the next hour and a half Id be wandering the boat watching the birds swarm above or float along side it and see one of the most beautiful sunsets Ive ever witnessed all because Id missed the other rides I was trying to take. Lifes pretty funny if you havent heard realized and though Ive told this as a somewhat romantic tale of waltzing around a ferry to an island in the PNW I was very stressed when all of this was unfolding. In fact extremely stressed. Many things out of my control were all hitting me at once and I just wanted to be sitting in peace on a boat for a few hours. Its always easier to learn our lessons in hindsight even this one where missing a couple of departure times actually led to the most beautiful outcome. But it goes hand-in-hand with my stress of the things out of my control. Those things now? Resolved. Healed. Complete. So if anything Ill learn to take the third ferry the first and second can pass and all will work out in the end. by corinne
