confession…

They say confession is good for the soul. I’m not sure who “they” are, but my soul needs some good and I need to confess a few things. First of all, I’m terrible at blogging. I had all these big ideas about tapping into my midlife awakening and my creative celebration of my 40th year,... Continue Reading →

The Inaugural Feast on Forty

I mentioned two posts ago that I'm planning a year long celebration of my 40th birthday (#feastingonforty). Well, yesterday was the big kick off, and I kicked it off with a few of my favorite things. For starters, I went to a local bakery and picked up a loaf of the yummiest ever cinnamon swirl bread... Continue Reading →

It’s ma birthday!

Well, today's the big day. I woke up early this morning feeling like a kid on Christmas morning. I can't tell you the last time I was this excited about a birthday. And it hasn't disappointed. I've savored every moment of it, feeling nothing but gratitude and oh so much joy. And, so begins my year... Continue Reading →

countdown’s on…

So, the big day is fast approaching - the day I for so long dreaded and now can’t wait to celebrate - my 40th birthday. It’s AMAZING what a shift in perspective can do for one’s outlook on life. I mentioned in my last post my holiday flu epiphany. I confess that when I first... Continue Reading →

My name is Marjorie, and I’m obnoxiously... Continue Reading →

on being afraid

Being afraid is a b*!#@! Regardless of what it is exactly you’re afraid of, the experience of fear sucks. Heart pounding in your ears, mind racing crazy thoughts in spite of every attempt to talk yourself out of the crazy, imagination running wild, recalling every episode of CSI, NCIS, and that old show about missing...

and so it begins

I was talking to a long-time friend on the phone the other day. She was bemoaning the woes of being an adult and I said to her, "I still think I'm 29! I haven't even decided what I want to be when I grow up!" We laughed, knowingly, but then I couldn't help but think: What... Continue Reading →
