A step forward

Wondering how I’ve been doing after my last guest blog about kicking this New Year in the pants with the DISCIPLINE to actually get healthy and stay healthy? Yea, well… I’m doing so so. Anyone relate? Here’s the deal: I’m FINALLY, actually starting! In truth, I’m on day 8 of starting without stopping! It took until mid Feb to actually, …

First love

Okay Readers, as it is Valentine’s day, I thought it might be appropriate for me to share a little love story… This isn’t the love story you might be expecting… yes, I am happily married to a man I’m obsessed with… but before Thomas, there was someone else. Someone many of you have likely fallen in love with, and someone …

That just ain’t me

You’ve all heard the saying, “Curiosity killed the cat!” But I think that little ditty is due for a revision. Comparison is the real killer, wouldn’t you agree?

So for one, let’s jump right on into the perspective …

I’ve been waiting to write this blog because I wanted it to end on a happy note. I wanted to type the last period knowing the story was over- or …

Dangerous ground

Okay, Readers… it’s time we take a few steps onto some dangerous ground together. If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you know that I’ve been on a hiatus this past month. We’ve been on a pretty intense travel schedule between my work and my husband’s rescue efforts (a story for another blog), and honestly I wasn’t sure exactly …

Country living

As I sat there, at my daughters horse back riding lesson at 8am on a Monday, I was pleasantly aware of how beautiful life can be. It was about 70 degrees, german shepherd puppies were playing at my feet as I typed, and the view wasn’t half bad either. I used to hate Mondays. I used to stand in my …
