Judy and Nick get Wild at the Zoo

I'm a month behind my own schedule due to vacations, missing luggage, a totaled vehicle and a lot of anxiety and depression, but last month Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde went to the zoo to visit some of their friends! I didn't want to sloths to beat me in getting the photos posted, and Judy's… Continue reading Judy and Nick get Wild at the Zoo

A Little Update

If you follow my blog you may have noticed my absence the past month. What happened? My attempts to be enthusiastic dwindled and died as the month of October progressed, and I suddenly was overwhelmed with depression, anxiety, panic and paranoia. I can't pinpoint what sparked this episode. Did it creep up on me and… Continue reading A Little Update

Enthusiastic Show and Tell

I know I said I wouldn’t describe myself as an enthusiastic person, and I still don’t, but I do have things in my life that I am enthusiastic about. So, today I’ll share with you something I enjoy enthusiastically: The Ohio Renaissance Festival. I’ve been going to the Ren Fest since I was a kid… Continue reading Enthusiastic Show and Tell

Princess Practice

In my new book, How to Be a Princess, there is a section in the back that looks like this: You randomly choose a word, think about what that word means to you and act out the word for the rest of the day. Let's see what I choose! Enthusiastic! Instead of following the book's… Continue reading Princess Practice

How to Be a Princess

What does it take to be a princess? Do you have to have mad fighting skills? Endless enthusiasm? Luscious locks? Pretty dresses? And good vocals? Every month when I feature a princess, I look at what makes them princessly. The list above is often mentioned in one way or another. But there's so much more… Continue reading How to Be a Princess

Truth Telling Time: I feel pretty distant from Gulia. Maybe she’s too new (even though I featured Raya already) or maybe it’s because she’s only a supporting character (even though I featured Wendy and Vanellope). But I think what it really comes down to is she’s so motivated and I’m so not. I’ve done things… Continue reading Hunger

A Evening in the Lives of Gulia and Luca

It was an evening in the late summer, and Gulia and Luca had a lot to do. Luca practiced his bike riding for the big race. They read one of Gulia's astronomy books and learned all they could learn. Then they decided to look at the stars they had learned about. And they ended the… Continue reading A Evening in the Lives of Gulia and Luca

Princessly Gulia

I know Gulia is new to the Disney/Pixar world, but since I feel like I'm running out of characters, Luca is a good movie and Gulia is a bad ass - I thought she would be a good princessly figure to feature this month. Besides - I see pasta in my future! Gulia is a… Continue reading Princessly Gulia
