Boy howdy has it been a week. Actually, it has been a wild two weeks. I started a new job two weeks ago today and at first, I loved it. I was making more than I had ever made, but I was also working more hours than I had ever worked. It was a job […]
I have been on a personal journey this summer to try to find my happy place. I have been in a period of flux with my kids growing older and going off to college and creating their own lives. I have three children. My son is working full time and my oldest daughter will go […]
See this picture? A wonderful friend of mine posted it on social media today and my first thought was “Look at how big my arm is. I shouldn’t have got in that picture.” Isn’t that sad? How many times have you chosen to not get into a picture to memorialize an event or experience? If […]

What dreams have you had lately? My dreams have been full of change. I can see why. This has been a few years of change with starting a business, selling our home, moving to a new home, changing churches, moving one of my chicks into college, and letting go of things we are no longer […]
Dreaming a new dream. All I can think is the song from Les Miserables “I Dreamed a Dream.” It just keeps running through my head, even though my life is definitely not like Fantine’s, some of the words describe how I feel or have felt. Here are the parts that keep running through my head: […]
