Lots and Lots of Ladybugs (Sundays In My City)

by Claudya Martinez May 24, 2014
Ladybugs for the garden

About once a year we release ladybugs in our backyard. San Francisco, CA. I showed you mine, now show me yours. Share your city/town/suburb/you name it!

Charles Dickens quote about crying

I’m one of those people who cries all the time. I cry if I’m happy, I cry if I’m sad, I curse if I’m angry and then maybe I’ll cry. I find myself crying at work very often. Not because I’m unhappy, I cry because I write posts about stories and the stories make me […]

We have got some ridiculous color hang ups going on. Think about it…like heaven forbid you wear white after Labor Day or the fashion police will come after you and you will never grace the cover of Vogue because obviously you know nothing about fashion. Personally, I wear white as little as possible because I’ll […]
