Resolutions: Let the New Year Begin

12 Commandments

New Year/New Week and posting with my ladies from The Blended Blog with our Resolutions. I'm also blessed to have a holiday day off to celebrate the beautiful contributions of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. One my favorite quotes of all-time is this one from Dr. King. I want this to be my mantra and the way of my life but so often I'm more focused on me than you. Sad but true how easily I fail but in failure there is an opportunity to grow. And this is where I find beauty in the new beginning ... Continue Reading...

Friday Five: The Best Posts

friday five

TGIF! I love Fridays. The end of the work week and looking ahead to the weekend makes me smile. Some Fridays I indulge in a tall flat white from Starbucks on my way to work as a little celebration. Not every Friday but a few. Today I'm off work because I'm indulging in a day of doctor's appointments. Not my favorite way to spend the day but it has to be done. Typically, I do these appointments in August around my birhtday. In a strange sense of humor I say I'm taking the day as my birthday ... Continue Reading...

Marriage: Forgiveness

Friends, I’m on a new journey this year and I hope you’ll come along with me.

We attended the first big Open Group last week. During our time the ... Continue Reading...

Do you know what the color of the year is for 2018? It's Ultra Violet. I do love a little purple but as I scoured my closet, shelves and drawers I found nothing, zero, nada of anything in this color. And then I remembered a top I had in this color from The Limited. Alas, I had sold it at Clothes Mentor. Why? Because truly this isn't the best shade of purple for me. Through my search I found a little ultra violet in a dress that I was planning to wear. If you look closely, I think you ... Continue Reading...

TBB Asks: January Edition

Slack for iOS Upload

New Year, New You! I love the fresh start of a new year but I also have an internal clock that likes to restart in August for a new school year. You can take the teacher out of the classroom but you can't take the teacher out of my blood. But I am super pumped for 2018. I feel as though I'm more focused on some things I want to accomplish this year and that makes me excited. Know what else? I'm thrilled to be her today with The Blended Blog ladies for our first Monday of the month TBB Asks. ... Continue Reading...

The first Friday of 2018 is here! I'm going to make it through the work week after all. It was only four days and I totally wish they were all this way but unfortunately that is not my reality. So glad you're here today friends because I have something special to share with my faves. It's number one so please check it out! One of my favorite colors is red and yet if you peek into my closet you would find scant amounts of it. I have a couple of red winter coats but other than those items the ... Continue Reading...
