Early Riser

I’ve always been a night owl and an early riser. What I haven’t always been great at is making myself go to the gym. Never needed to being naturally thin my entire life. Then life happens - birth of my girlie in my 30s, then the discovery of a low acting thyroid after trying to... Continue Reading →

“My Superman”

  I started this post in August, 2018. There are many times, I have the idea of what I want to write about but not the words to place with it. My brother, can sing effortlessly. I am one of his biggest fans. So instead of trying to find the words ~ I'll let him... Continue Reading →

Everyone Loves Cake

Mmmmm ~ cake 🖤 and what a cake this one is. I don't even remember where the recipe for this one came from as it has been in my 3 ring binder typed out for many years. I love to cook. Bake? Well, I have a love / hate relationship when it comes to baking. I... Continue Reading →

Me Weekend ~ Me Time

I have spent this entire weekend alone doing whatever I wanted to do whenever I wanted to do it. I even took an evening to do nothing at all but veg out, watch every episode of Season 5 of Grace & Frankie on Netflix and drink Dark Horse Rosé wine. I have been afforded all... Continue Reading →

Spiritual & Mental Reset

If Facebook showed me just how many times I pull up their website on Safari, I would be even more aggravated with myself than the crap that flows through my newsfeed as I mindlessly scroll down rolling my eyes ~ quite often I may add ~ at all of the crap that people post and... Continue Reading →

Pitching Mood

As much as I hate to admit it - I am a hoarder of things like all of M's papers. I have totes labeled Preschool, Kindergarten, 1st Grade, 2nd Grade, 3rd Grade.... you get the picture. Middle school took a hit in the paper department since very little - if any - papers were brought... Continue Reading →

Green-Eyed Monster

Jealousy is a very ugly word. For fifteen years, I've put up with someone in a constant state of jealousy. I honestly wonder just how a person can remain in that state day in and day out 24/7. It would have to be absolutely exhausting.  Not only that, but to steal the joy out of special,... Continue Reading →

Uncomfortable Conversation

Last week, I took Miss M to the DMV to update her State ID as she changed her last name a year ago this month (July) to incorporate my maiden name, and to have the same name as me and to have her Pappy's last name as well. Yes, we are those ladies who hyphenate.... Continue Reading →

Take Time to Slow Down

Rush here. Rush there. Do this. Do that. Thinking of that while I'm doing this. Story of my life. It really hit me yesterday as GW and I went to Columbus for a couple of nights to celebrate wedding weekend with family and friends. We went to one of our favorite spots, Cooper's Hawk Winery,...

Cheers to Summer & Hydrangeas

Cheers to Summer and Hydrangeas! These are my absolute favorite flowers. I pray that these take and grow. Unfortunately, the last bunch we planted didn't make it.  (my hand looks chubby, my nail polish is chipped and I have a bug bite on my hand from last night's porch party celebrating a friend's birthday but...
