Diet Update

Over the last month, I have adopted a (mostly) plant-based diet. I use the word mostly because after I discovered I had an adult-onset gluten allergy, my personal choice about any diet modifications going forward was that I would have the attitude of "everything else is negotiable." I will always be gluten-free. Perhaps one day …

Unplugged Summer

It's true: I am back on a social media "detox." I hadn't necessarily planned this ahead of time, but I found myself having a really difficult time mental-health-wise in June, and decided it would be best to take a step back for the season. I'm not sure if I will be offline for the entire …

We are MOVING!

I must say, when I decided to cut back on work hours, go part-time, and really pour into my passion of homemaking...this isn't exactly the timeline I thought would be before me. First of all, just as the title says, yes, we are moving! We are pretty content with our choice. We had really desired …

Harper’s a Homemaker

So much has happened since I last posted, but let me go ahead and get you up to speed! I have left my job in eyecare. I have had such a wonderful time learning and working with some amazing optometrists, but felt very called to leave fulltime work and pursue a part-time job with flexibility …

It is revived through the release of my original music, which has been quite a long time coming. It is revived through a new morning routine, which involves waking up at 5:30am and …

The EP is coming!

It is August now. It just so happens to be my least favorite month of the year, but this is 2020 and as we have learned...anything goes. It could be great. It has been a busy last few weeks, but in the best way. My experience serving and directing with the church I mentioned in …

Are we still in 2020?

I ask this question because good things are actually happening. Here's whats up: We are now one week away from recording my EP. All the musicians I asked to be a part of it said yes. Double win. One of my musician friends/previous volunteers I met on Craigslist really wants to start gigging with me. …
