Moment of Truth Monday

Diving competition took us to Atlanta, Georgia several years ago. We watched multiple sessions of diving, visited Olympic Park, caught up with old friends, and consumed too many calories (thank you, chicken and waffles). Of all the wonderful experiences on that trip, there was one that stood out among the rest. During a break in…… Continue reading Moment of Truth Monday

I am a sucker for a shortcut. Back roads, secret paths, makeup wipes, and wrinkle-free spray are a few of my favorites. If there is a “less work, more chill” way, I’ve explored it. If you’ve thrown your clothes in the dryer to get out the wrinkles, you know exactly what I’m talking about here.…… Continue reading Moment of Truth Monday

I was feeling particularly conflicted last week about the beautiful pumpkins occupying space on my porch steps and dining table. The season had passed, but goodness I didn’t feel good…… Continue reading Moment of Truth Monday

I am a survivor of 1980’s train-wreck trends. Some of those include but are not limited to: parachute pants {mine were gray}, a single white glove {thank you, Michael Jackson}, feathered hair + mullets, multiple ear piercings, large Esprit book bags, moon boots, and tight rolled jeans. Pictures of this decade cause me to cringe…… Continue reading Moment of Truth Monday

Whales intrigue me. Just ask my family, my favorite pastime is whale watching. Their behaviors and instincts fascinate me because they create amazing backdrops for life lessons. Whales follow a specific pattern {a rhythm, if you will} that I would like to emulate. Whales feed in the cold waters of Alaska before making a six-week…… Continue reading Moment of Truth Monday
