So last year, I feel like you and I, dear reader, entered a new phase of realness on This Square Peg. This is a lifestyle blog, yes, and we discussed various aspects of my life, including openly sharing with you that 2019 mostly stunk. I initially wondered if these were things I even wanted to [...]
No Blogtober this month; the days got away from me. Nevertheless, you will find a revolving autumnal theme with my forthcoming posts. Many of them will be reflective quotes and a bit of commentary. Happy Fall, y'all.

(The saleslady was slick; she heard me saying that I had no intention of purchasing makeup and [...]
It's a gorgeous day. It's edible and gorgeous and autumnal and even warmer here than the season calls for. Enjoy your Saturday, wherever you are.
