Hi, I’m Tessa. When I was a senior in high school, I was co-captain of my school’s JV tennis team, which just about sums up how I am at most things: Very Okay.

I like to do a lot of things: write, bake, cook, craft, thrift, decorate, travel, etc. I don’t like to do other things: empty a litter box, clean my kitchen, grieve, etc. I somehow manage to do all of these things and am Very Okay at each and every one of them. Never an expert nor master, but doing my best. Thanks for tuning in as I document my failures and my triumphs, my missteps and my successes, my aches and my breaks, laughing a lot along the way.

Life is fun, sad, beautiful, and sometimes a little tricky – that’s Very Okay.
