August 21st is approaching quickly…good grief…what an uproar the sun and the moon have caused around here in the last couple of weeks! I’m at the point now where I don’t know if I should invest in a bunker or just throw my lawn chair in the back yard, cold beverage in hand, and see … More TOTALITY – EMBRACING 38
I love Brad Paisley, love him. He is an amazing singer, songwriter, and can play one hell of a guitar lick…but his most recent song, although very catchy, leaves me sad when I hear it on the radio. No matter the mood I am in…it leaves me sad. “Last time for everything,” after hearing it, … More LAST TIME FOR EVERYTHING
I hear people say it all the time, including myself…tomorrow is a new day, another day, another chance. But what if it’s not? What if today was it?

I was beyond excited to go because I had never done anything like this for myself, ever. However, in the same breath, I was terrified. I … More BE WHERE YOUR FEET ARE
Most people I know have a bucket list. They are fun. They keep us focused on things that we want to accomplish. They provide us with challenge and whimsy. But they can also be unforgettable, I mean really unforgettable! I have several things on my bucket list. Some I have accomplished, some currently left undone, … More BUCKET LIST…FAIL
It was 1:30 on a Saturday….I had resorted to a large glass of wine and a very hot Epsom salt bath. After a perfectly planned, but failed attempt to entertain a 3 and 6 year old boy creating lasting holiday memories… I had given up. I very carefully and thoughtfully crafted five holiday themed weekend … More A Stroll Down Candy Cane Lane in May
Listen up; your t-shirt is making the rest of us look bad. I saw a beautiful, very much put together woman the other day sporting a t-shirt that said, “I Woke Up Like This.” Ummm….OK, right! Let’s just set the record straight here…you and I both know that your t-shirt is lying. You woke up … More “I Woke Up Like This”…Right.
Jase from Duck Dynasty is currently taking up residency with the pups from the Paw Patrol and I’m learning to be OK with it. I’ve been known to be a little neurotic at times….OK, maybe a lot of the times. I like things clean and organized and put away….keyword here is “like”. I am a … More Jase From Duck Dynasty Is Living With The Paw Patrol
