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 →

beyond the horizon

Life is so interesting. Early on we really can set ourselves up for success by embracing our inner adventurer or for a lifetime of 'not quite there yet' by attempting to follow a prescribed notion of what life "should" look like.

DVR’d life

I admit, I’m a bit of a TV junkie. I can’t say I’m proud of this fact, but I definitely have some shows that it absolutely pains me to miss. Because of this slight obsession, I broke down and got a DVR. Some of my favorites this season have an element of suspense to them... Continue Reading →
