If you’re like me, school is back in session and most mornings the alarm comes way earlier than you’d like, am I right? In my house, there are lunches to pack, showers to be had, workouts to be completed and breakfast to be eaten – and sometimes I’d like something […]
We’re in the throws of winter here in the Midwest – although we managed to dodge big blizzard, ‘Jonas’, of 2016 and for that I am grateful (I mean seriously, 40-inches of snow in 24 hours?!!). However, there is something to be said about being snowbound while the white stuff tumbles […]
How’s your summer so far? While the calendar says that summer has indeed begun, our weather has not quite cooperated – the rain has been relentless with flooding and I swear the kamakaze mosquitos fly in formation with me as their number one target – oof!

My brain is fried, my body’s ‘get-up-and-go, got-up-and-went;’ I’m staring at a calendar that says next week is Thanksgiving, […]
Ten minutes to empty my head, empty my thoughts, pen-to-paper without stopping. No editing, no looking back – only moving forward. Wouldn’t it be great if we could live life this way? If I could live my life this way? Only moving forward, never looking back to edit, cross through, […]
