A Year and Some Change

Today was a great day. I purposely eliminated everything from my schedule. I needed a day open. A day free of obligations. No social events, no phone calls or emails, no tasks that required doing - just me, myself, and I. Only, I haven't been alone. A few minutes ago, I watched Vince Gill and... Continue Reading →

The Gifts That Don’t Keep Giving

Let me tell you something I've learned. He may buy you really great presents but is he giving you the gift of speaking your language? Yeah folks. I am talking about the ol' love languages.

Moving….Again

Photo by Karolina Grabowska on Pexels.com Whelp, it's been a little over a year so, wouldn't you know it - it's time to turn my whole life upside down and move...again. This is old hat for me.

10 Things I’d Tell My Younger Self

I don't think mom knew it was picture day. Still, I continue to sport a very similar hairdo. WFH much? Dear Younger Me, I don't know how much time we have together so I'm going to make this quick. I've watched you from afar. I've noticed the mistakes you've made, the heartbreak you've endured and... Continue Reading →

Look Ma! No Boundaries!

Nothing says, "Go start a YouTube Channel," like having 48 followers on your blog! Am I right? I mean, I might as well take another gut punch right to my confidence and bear my soul EVEN MORE PUBLICLY just so I can spend hours putting together content only to obsessively refresh my various accounts to...

What’s your Goldschlager?

There are two things I will never consume again. Two things that will always elicit a physical (and very negative) response if someone even utters the words: Goldschlager and Reuben sandwiches. I just got chills and that nails-on-a-chalk-board feeling. Like, in my soul. We all have these things. Food scars (or drink scars if the... Continue Reading →
