Change of Plans

So I’m thinking that my goal of reading 26 books this year may have been a bit ambitious. We are at the last day of the second month and I literally JUST opened the first page to my second book of the year last night! Reading a book from front cover to back every two…

It’s Ok To Not Be Okay.

Today, I realized that I’m not ok. You know what else I realized? It’s okay. Typically, I’d keep days like this to myself. I’d have my moment and that would be that. Well today I want to blog about it. Not for attention or sympathy of any sort. If you know me, you know that’s…

3:30

There is the family that we are born into and then there is the family that just BECOMES family. Today my aunt is being buried. We were of no blood relation, but NO ONE can tell me that she wasn’t MY family. No one can tell me that she wasn’t my “Auntie.” Peggy Jean Harris…

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…
