What’s On My Heart

heart

Hey there friends! I have tried to write a post like a zillion times but I just sit and stare at a blank screen. It's hard sometimes to write again when you take a break. The study break for the professional test inadvertently turned into a longer break from blogging, which made writing so hard for me. Eventually, I would just give up and close my computer and move onto something else. Except today. Today ideas and words and my heart all aligned to say what I've been wanting to say but couldn't ...

A Beautiful Mess + Link-Up

Welcome, friends! To those of you who are mommas, I hope your Mother's Day was filled with much love and appreciation for what you do in the lives of your children. What a privilege, calling and challenge to shape and mold a future generation. It is not a mission for the faint of heart and it never ends. The challenge can be incredibly difficult and yet one of the most rewarding blessing in this life. If I'm honest, I would say that for many years now, I have shied away from Mother's Day. On ...

My {un} Perfect Life

comparison is the thief of joy

The other day I was thinking about life. My thoughts were drawn to just how regular and mundane daily life can be for me {and probably for most people}. I don't have a fancy life nor does my life look at like a Pinterest pin. Truth be told I'm just sorta ordinary. My ordinary typically includes...an early morning workout followed by Shakeology. Off to work where I try to keep the ball rolling in terms of office supplies, lunches, copy machines, travel arrangements, paying invoices, ... Continue Reading...

But what if….

but what if

Last Friday I was reading a post on The Blended Blog by Andrea whose blog home is Living on Cloud Nine. She featured some of her favorites from the week and as I read the post and followed the links I was captivated by the post Has Blogging Gotten out of Control? by Fashion on the 4th Floor. As I read the post I found my myself agreeing with every word. I especially loved that Diane actually googled and found this definition of blogging. A blog is a frequently updated online personal journal or ... Continue Reading...

what’s saving my life right now?

what's saving

That’s a real strong title, right? Yep, I have to confess that it did not come from me but from one of my favorite bloggers, Anne of Modern Mrs. Darcy. Love her blog and when I read one of her posts last week entitled, What’s saving your life right now? I was completely intrigued. She wrote about the difficulty that comes with winter. Short days, cold, not as much sun, etc. can be trying a person. I have to completely agree because I’m a warm weather and blue sunny skies kind of girl. She ... Continue Reading...

Refocusing in January

refocusing

January. You enter bringing hopes of newness and something fresh. New goals, fresh start, a refocus. Whatever it is you want to call it, it happens. And then life happens and it’s so easy to forget or get distracted or even give up on what seemed important and urgent January 1. I get it because I can say that is me. That is my life. And yet. Yet, I want to continue to pursue those things that were on my heart as January 2017 opened. Those ideas of others and refocus. I’m pursuing those. Yes, I’m ... Continue Reading...
