Our First 365 Days

A wise man told me back in May that this is a year of firsts for our family. My first birthday, first Father's Day, first 4th of July, on and on without my Dad. I explained to him that we made every day special not just holidays while I appreciated what he was sharing with... Continue Reading →

Making Each Day Count

This past weekend was packed full of activities much like any other day of the week in my world. Meetings, cross country meet, outdoor music festival in our beautiful downtown City Park and a Sunday full of shopping, a lunch date with my GW and dinner with friends. I have always said if you aren't... Continue Reading →

Holy Brussel Sprouts

I don't know about you but roasted Brussel sprouts are like Lays potato chips to me. You can't have just one. With that being said, I ate the ENTIRE pan. Dang it. Friends of ours own a restaurant in town called Colony Club. (Be sure to check them out on Facebook & Instagram). When I... Continue Reading →

Where do people get off?

I just spent the last hour and 48 minutes on the phone with one of my closest and dearest friends talking about where do people get off thinking they can basically say anything and do anything to someone. Is it the social media era where people hide behind keyboards, monitors and hand held devices where... Continue Reading →

Not your story to tell

My intercessor has encouraged me to share what I wrote on my personal Facebook page on April 28, 2017 about the passing of my Dad in regards to those who feel the necessity to share someone else's story without their permission and the need to be "first'. I would like to take a moment to... Continue Reading →

One Less Place Setting

A month ago... as I sit here and hit backspace several times... not wanting to type the words... let alone admit the words.... we have one less at our table for family dinners. My hero, my first love, the one I hold all others up to, my everything, my Daddy went home. And because I... Continue Reading →

Dishes In The Sink

Sunday, I ran the dishwasher three times. Saturday, we had guests over for dinner. One can gage a successful dinner party by the number of times you run the dishwasher. I ran mine, three times Sunday. And that's not counting the number of items I washed by hand because,of course, there are certain items you... Continue Reading →

Decisions

Decisions Are you led by your mind, heart or gut? Recently, I've had to make some decisions that I've led with my mind, heart but mainly gut. Because when your gut speaks to you, I've found, it's the Lord. Yes, Jesus. Signs come in many forms. Even text messages. Even emails while you're text messaging.... Continue Reading →

Impromptu Day Out with my GW

My brother invited Miss M to ride in his fire truck in our annual Christmas Parade. GW & I ate at a local establishment, the Colony Club, that opened last year when they (friends of ours) took an old movie theatre and turned it into a restaurant. To watch the transformation was so amazing to... Continue Reading →

No Longer Apologizing

I am me. All of me. The good, the bad, the ugly. Mostly good. At least, I try. It is disheartening when you find out that you try and try and try and do and do and do for people who are one way in front of you and start on you the moment you... Continue Reading →

Family Dinner

The most important thing to us is family. We love hard. Fight hard. Defend hard. We all live in the same small town and we speak daily either by text, phone calls or FaceTime. Not all of us actually "speak" to every single one of us daily, however, we know we are thought of and... Continue Reading →

The Shannon Special ~ Pool Side

It is pouring the rain here today. I would love to be hanging out pool side sipping on what we have coined - the Shannon Special.  A little bit of ice, a couple of lime wedges squeezed in and a Michelob Ultra. Refreshing and delicious! A friend of ours introduced these to us one evening... Continue Reading →

Revelation

So this evening, I had a revelation. I realized that I don't post a lot of what I'm thinking, doing or experiencing because my photos aren't what some would call "professional".  So my thought is, WHO CARES! I'm me. I like what I like and I like this time in my life and if I... Continue Reading →

So, a Lemon Blueberry Cake was in order! The first thing that I do in the morning of the day... Continue Reading →
