Your clothing speaks…

How we dress, do our hair or wear accessories actually says a lot about us without saying anything at all. It can in many ways tell you about personalities and the core make up of people. Now I realize this isn’t always the case and it can come across as judgemental, but I can assure […]

When a 9-year-old teaches the 39-year-old…

“Hey mom! Check out this roly-poly!” the almost ten-year-old girl said with excitement. I glanced quickly down at her dirty little hands and saw the tiny grey bug cruising along her pink skin. She has been ever so busy the last few days with building a roly-poly habitat in a large bucket. She has all […]

A Haunted House Experience

My husband and I recently rented a 150-year-old Victorian Home off Airbnb. We needed a place to stay during a Love After Marriage seminar we were attending. He knows I like vintage things, and from the ad, this home seemed like a lovely place to stay. The home had all period furniture. It had three […]

Brown Sugared Truth

My husband and I recently attended a Love After Marriage workshop. It was 3 and ½ days. It was our first LAM experience. We have been to a lot of different marriage seminars and such in our 21 years of wedded bliss. This one takes the cake as the most thorough. It focused a lot […]

I will no longer shop at Victoria Secret

When I was about 14 years old, magazines from Victoria Secret would flood our home weekly. Or at least it seemed weekly. Before I was even 14, I had self-esteem body issues. I began dating the man who is now my husband at that age. I was fairly mature for a 14-year-old and desired to […]

Run Away Notes 101

Movement moves my mind. Yes, Whether I’m in the car, on a train, in a plane, or making my body work by jogging. My brain is coming up with all sorts of creative ideas. My imagination is creating new chapters of stories, little fine details of peoples faces, adding emotions to the characters and sometimes […]

We should always be on the mission field

No matter what stage of life season or predicament we are in, we should always see ourselves on a mission field. If you have ever raised kids, you might remember the long days of character building, forgiveness, and exhaustion from managing the immaturity of growing humans. You may have thought I was talking about just […]

I Need You and You Need Me

I came to my desk to write and stopped to stare a moment out the bedroom window this afternoon. I was sipping on a little jar of kombucha. The chimes clanged and clonged with the wind knocking them together. We are probably going to get an early spring and the juniper tree that offers it […]

Hey North American women. What are you marching for?

Hey North American women! What are you angry about? Why do you proclaim to be so enraged? Do you not have everything you need plus more? Have you been in the shoes of an innocent ten-year-old girl on the streets of Thailand playing with a passing butterfly unaware that you were to be given to […]

Friend or no?

In today’s society, I don’t think its easy to keep and develop good friendships. We are too busy, too swamped, to make it worse, we communicate so often over cold, impersonal mediums such as texting! If you’re communicating with a friend of text message, things can be misread, or misstated and often ignored altogether. It’s easy for them to pretend they never saw your message.

Project Novel in the Face of Fear

The last year, I have not been writing much on my blog, but I have been writing. I have been working on my first Novel and have completed it to the point of editing it. I don’t know if people will enjoy the story or not, but the accomplishment in and of itself is big […]

About that word BRAVE

Everywhere,  we see the word brave. What is it, what does it mean? Everyone is sure they want to be it, the word is pure adrenaline and highlighted with a lovely shade of the coolness factor. We all want it because when we are brave, we allow the change in ourselves that is most certainly not […]

The Way I Voted.

If you think this is a post telling you all about who I voted for and why you would be mistaken. I wouldn’t share that with you, no matter who I voted for. Because, really, why would I want to know that about you? And, Why do you need to know that about me? So, you […]
