Tell Me I’m Your National Anthem 🇺🇸✌🏻


I mean, I couldn’t NOT reference Lana Del Rey, right? I mean, Lana Del Rey= Q U E E N

It’s been a minute since I’ve posted! I’ve kind of been taking a break from stuff lately, but also pouring my focus into my YouTube channel and our Etsy, Edison’s Place!

I had to share these awesome retro Levi 505’s with you guys! 😍


hey're high waisted, I love the American flag on them and they are AMAZING.

out a good statement piece that borders on tacky that is just so freaking great?!

Anyways, I am listing these for sale on our Etsy, so you should check them out! 👇🏻

I think my next post on here is going to be about how we have gone about booking things for our Italy trip and some advice I have if you are wanting to plan a trip there for yourself! Hope you all have been doing great!

A Musing

  Is it just me or are one pieces having a moment? 😍 And for good reason!

  One piece bathing suits are timeless, comfortable, have some retro flair, but can still be alluring.

 This one piece was found while on one of my many adventures. 🦄 It’s from the 1980’s and is in excellent condition. No picks, stains, stretching or anything and is made out of the most awesome jersey type material, so it has a cool shine & sheen to it! Blue is my favorite color and I also love the diagonal stripes across it! 

  I almost feel like it has a sort of Olympic vibe to it, like a leotard that would be worn on the floor by a gymnast. 🤸‍♂️ It’s super comfortable and when I tried it on, it fit me like a glove.

  Alas, I am selling it on my Etsy though. 😫💦😫💦😫💦 I flipped a coin. Then, I asked my husband and he also said I should sell it. Then I flipped another coin, but…I guess it’s meant to go to someone else. There will be other bathing suits.

  I just had to share it with you and also give it its own post. Sometimes, clothes are just magical, like The Traveling Pants or this Retro 1980’s Bathing Suit. If it doesn’t sell, maybe I will end up with it again anyway. If not, I’m sure it will give someone else a new suit and a fun summer! 😎 

P.S I absolutely love this time of year and some of the styles I’ve been seeing. When it comes to swimsuits, what is your favorite style?

Petsitting News! 🐾

A Musing

A late Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and all of that to everyone! Here’s a cute picture of my adopted rabbit, Twix! ❤ She loved running and hiding under the tree this year for her first Christmas indoors. 

Quite a bit has been going on, actually. Now that the holidays are over, I can focus a little more. I went live on Facebook today and announced that I have written another book! 🎉 (My first book was a fictional murder mystery set in Boston in the 1890’s. Think Sherlock Holmes, but set in America. A Toast of Malice.

This book is all about my petsitting business! I have never been that much into “how to” books, but Tim was the one who encouraged me to write it. So, in between watching dogs and cats, I wrote this book in a month! Tim helped me to format it, and here we are today! 

A lot of people have expressed curiosity over what it is that I do, so I thought, what better way to explain it than in a book?! I like writing too, so why not combine those two talents? 

In my book, I give some background on how I got started and all the courage THAT took to quit my part time job and go at petsitting full time. I also talk about some cute stories and things that have happened while I’ve been petsitting, and more importantly, how to be your own boss.

It may seem like an easy thing, but it takes just as much time to get your brain to grasp the concept as it does to put it into motion! 😜 

This last year has been an insane ride. I’ve doubled my clients, doubled my income and had a lot of fun with all the animals I watch in the process! And I haven’t spent a dime on advertising! 😱

So, if you like a good inspirational short story/how to book, check out my book “Start Making Money Petsitting” by Avery Pressley on Amazon! Or, if fiction is more your thing, you can check out my murder mystery, A Toast of Malice: An Alexander Baines Mystery by Avery Pressley.

Also, since we’re sharing so many links here, my husband just started an awesome Etsy account for the homemade and unique lamps he makes and the Knoxville Trolley token bracelets and jewelry that I make! 🎉

He will probably have lamps up on there as soon as he completes some more, and I may venture into selling some vintage clothing online, which I ❤. So, stay tuned!
