There is Time Enough for Everything

So it’s sort of that time of year when we are normally taking an extended holiday in Europe; something that we usually start planning for after all of the excitement of Christmas and the holidays have worn off. And typically without hesitation, I have a few ideas up my sleeve about where we should travel […]

the Smell of Grass

Last week while we were driving home from an early morning run on Coronado Island, we both rolled down the car windows to enjoy the surprisingly cool and beautiful weather. . .and immediately I caught the smell of freshly mown grass. Within an instant I was back to my childhood, running through the yard while […]

April Goals

It feels like we are officially settling into Spring here, and yikes, because we are already onto the fourth month of the New Year. . .yes, fourth. (Insert my shocked face here.) I feel like I am just finally starting to hit my stride with 2019. And yep, I get it, I am a late […]

March Goals

So I started this New Year slightly differently. And how was that, you might be wondering to yourself? Well, I didn’t create my typical list of goals or resolutions for the New Year. Yes, me. . .the list queen. And I didn’t make a single one. In recent years, I have surprisingly found myself being […]

My Year Ahead

In years past, the start of the New Year has often been a time for me to reflect, review. . .and then plan, plan, plan. And while I do really love the idea of creating a list of goals for the New Year, personally, I am finding myself in a different place this year. The […]

9 Things

Well to be honest, it’s been quite some time since I have updated my 101 in 1001 list.  Or frankly, have even thought about it.  But Ryan sweetly reminded me a few weeks ago that I should take a look at it again, and I figured that he was right. As I read through my […]

Being A Libra

I’m a Libra.  I was born on September 25th, and I seem to find myself pretty in line with most of the Libra characteristics.  Especially the most widely, and easily recognized, balance.  A scale is the astrological sign for a Libra, representing the desire to keep balance, and yep, that’s definitely me. I love the […]

50 Questions

Roughly two years ago I wrote a blog post (Free Your Mind) about an article that I had come across.  The article was a mental exercise of sorts in self-discovery – 50 questions that you are supposed to answer without hesitation.  There are no right answers, and there are no wrong answers.  It is simply […]

Being the Author

One of the most thought-provoking ideas that I have come across lately, is the concept that you need to be the author of your own life.  I think that this is something that I have thought about in different ways for a long time, but never so clearly.  Be the author of your life.  Narrate […]


So I can’t almost believe this, but to be honest, I think that it has been years since I have done a “Lately” post on the blog.  (Insert my bulging eyes and shocked face here.)  I had always loved doing these posts as a way to catch you guys up with everything going on in […]
