A brief list of things I'm doing lately that I have no shame in or about... Reading Christmas novels or novellas. Yes, it's before Thanksgiving. Yes, I know this annoys some people but you know what? I don't care. I love these stories. They make me happy and keep me turning the pages, with endings … Continue reading No Shame in my game
Reading: The Quilter's Legacy by Jennifer Chiaverini. I think I read half this book before it had to go back as it's oddly familiar so hopefully I'll finish it this week. Loving: The fact that my PET scan last week was clear. Still hasn't totally sunk in, partially because I still have three more treatments … Continue reading Currently, October
Today I am 34. I won't lie, this last year kicked my butt. It started off with a fabulous celebration with friends and family, all put together by my loving husband. A week later, my whole world nearly fell apart when my dad fell ill with some serious heart troubles. By November he was home … Continue reading This is 34
In scrolling through Instagram Stories the other night (confession: I have yet to film one or share pictures on there) one of a former blogger that I've met and still very much admire talked about positivity and authenticity. She made a point that got me thinking: of course there is a time and a place … Continue reading
I set a goal of reading 65 books this year. Between work, personal and health goings on, I'm pretty far behind sitting at 36 of the 65 books read as of Saturday evening. Not too shabby since it's over 55% of the way there but still, I'm a little bummed because reading is an escape … Continue reading Books, Lately
Things I've done in the last 60 days that I didn't anticipate or expect having to do at age 33.... Having a PET Scan (protip: find something to chant or repeat to yourself during this lovely 20 minute experience) Undergoing two diagnostic procedures within the span of three weeks and noticing the profound difference between … Continue reading Who Would have thought?
It's a good thing I didn't spend a lot of money on this new site, eh? Leave it to life happening and getting in the way. Things that have happened since I last wrote... My adorable step daughters spent the summer with us. Time flew by as it so often does when you're having fun. … Continue reading Anybody reading?
What a busy season this is. Outside everything is blooming and changing and making me sneeze. Professionally things are also changing, molting, morphing, making me feel a bit more frazzled and stressed than I care to admit. Socially it's a busy time: wedding season is upon us, graduations are around the corner, charity events, outdoor … Continue reading Favorites, Lately
I set a goal for myself of hitting 400,000 steps in the 40 days during Lent. Typically I have no issue hitting my 10,000 daily steps but last October I hit a bit of a roadblock due to some unexpected events (more on that another day) and I never got back in the Step Saddle. … Continue reading #trypod & the ‘casts I listen to
Well, you can take the blog away from a girl but you can't keep a girl away from a blog. For years I blogged under a different name. I met amazing online friends who turned into real life friends, I read & reviewed books and other products. I shared (most) of my life with the … Continue reading What’s in a Name
