• My list was…

    Eat more donuts!!!  There you have it, folks, easy peasy!   Oh, wow, if only that were true!! Seriously, now (kind of).  Since May 20, 2020, I am still down 9.6 pounds.  The scales have lingered around that number for a…

  • I Want an Empty Cup!

    I stumbled upon this quote recently and while I’ve heard it many times, it struck me so strongly.  I thought about the irony of how I used to feel so empty.  That emptiness caused me to feel useless, lost, hopeless… …

  • Beautifully Broken

    I have a newfound love for the beach so much so it kind of shocks me.  I used to think it was just uhh… too sandy and the water was scary (that part hasn’t changed much for me).  I may…

  • Revving the Engine.

  • Easy Pasta Parmesan One Dish Meal!

    I’m loving learning to cook the “easy” way and often with things already on hand.  And it’s great learning you can have just one dish for a meal without a side or two (or three as I’ve done before!).  One…

  • The Person in the Pew.

    If I’ve learned one thing (among a thousand) it’s that you never know what that person in the pew is going through on Sunday morning.  It may be the person a few rows ahead or a few rows back, it…

  • Outside looking in.

    While I want so desperately for this to be a positive space all the time, life just isn’t like that. Things happen, not always good things, but they make us who we are, right?  And if you’re like me, memories…
