CHOOSE

My best friend texted me a little while ago and told me that she’d been searching for a word for 2021. As she shared her word with me for this year, I began thinking about my own word. After a very brief contemplation, it hit me! CHOOSE. Everything that we could possibly want in life……

26 Books

This year I am committing to reading a book every 2 weeks. I am constantly buying books, but rarely make time to actually read them. I challenge you to be intentional and read more this year as well! That may look like listening to audio books and that is perfectly fine too! I have books…

Hail and Farewell

This post has been pretty difficult to start. This will be a fairly short one. I’ve typed, erased, typed, erased again and this is what made the cut. I guess I will start with the truth. 2020 was tough. Like really tough. I planned to do a lot last year that I wasn’t able to…

We Did It!

Wow. We did it! We showed up and we did it! As I sit in front of my television watching CNN coverage, I sit here with a deep sigh of relief. I am happy and I have a renewed sense of hope. I just want to remind you all that though we have scored a…

UNTITLED

Today was… a lot. Where do I start? I guess the beginning would be a good place. I woke up with an aching back. I also woke up pretty anxious. I was thinking about how I needed to finish getting the kids’ passports. Random as is seems, the thought first entered my mind yesterday after…

2020 Covid Escape (Girls only edition)

What a year 2020 has been. No need for any recaps. We are all aware of what it’s been like over the last 9 months, I haven’t written in a while. At least I haven’t managed to finish a post and actually press “publish.” It’s like having everything to say, wanting, and needing to say…

The Phone Call

When I first started blogging, I’d told myself that I would write so many posts per week. I think it was like 5 per week.  I soon realized that, for me, this was an unrealistic expectation. Adhering to a schedule would mean that with or without inspiration, I’d post. So basically, I’d just be rambling…

Collective Efforts

A few hours ago, I geared up (face mask & gloves) and I left my house headed to grab a few items that I needed from the store. COVID-19 has not only cleared the road, but the shelves inside all of our favorite grocery stores, pharmacies and convenience stores are completely scarce. It feels like…

37: A Redefined Birthday

  I made it and I’m so very thankful. I feel blessed. COVID-19 has been a great detriment across the world. So many lives have been taken and so many more have fallen sick. Much of the country has been locked down in one way or another and we’ve been forced to find solace in…
