Why I Don’t Quit

Quitting is easy. Except when it comes to sugar. Impossible I tell you. I’ve tried (sort of) with little success. I’m not sorry though especially since Maddie just made homemade Blueberry Pie Bars.

A Dog in the House

I love dogs. I’ve always had a dog. (Except when we lived in a tiny apartment in New Orleans. ) My dogs live outside where dogs are free to run and play and sleep and poop. Dogs are happy outside. I said I’d never have a dog in the house. Never. Never ever. Then this…

Why I Quit {and why you should, too}

I’m a recovering perfectionist. I’m driven to achieve and please. And I have a few letters behind my name. Last year I was halfway to having a few more. And then I quit. I withdrew. Closed the books. Never looked back. Oh, I didn’t say I was quitting at first. Stacy Averette is not a…
