A reason? A season? A lifetime?

  The day I saw the sky in perfect colors while sitting on my patio was perfect timing. The day I received an unexpected text from a friend was also perfect timing. Tonight, a three minute phone call was meant to be as I move on to the next phase of my life. Life is…

Music Fuels My Soul (Song and Video Series #12) Titanium

David Guetta – Titanium ft. Sia I am pretty sure this has been my anthem for the last few years. I actually hear this song often on my runs. But one day at the beginning of this year on a long run, this song came on and in my head I know I screamed YES! YES!…

Sweater Weather

I live in the Southeastern United States. Snow days are rare thing for us. While cold weather is something I typically do not wish for, I am happy for my #LittleLove who gets another day off to recover, along with her classmates and teacher all hit with the recent wave of the flu. The snow…

Sick child = Not so glamorous me

As they say in the South, I am a hot mess.  It’s was 6:30 pm, I looked in the mirror and there I was – gasp! The messy hair bun on my head, the old glasses (dog ate the good pair), no makeup, still wearing my workout clothes from 4:00 am this morning, dark circles…

Music Fuels My Soul (Song and Video Series #11) The Strumbellas

You all know I love it when friends send me songs. Sometimes, the timing is spot on.  It was 10:00 pm the other night when I was in my room relaxing. Candles, my favorite pandora station, some reading, and an unexpected message on my phone that changed my mood for the night. To my friend….

New Year’s Day Food Tradition

My house smells so good. I can honestly say that I love cooking. I especially love days when I can take my time, try new recipes, all while listening to jazz music and having candles throughout the kitchen. For many, it may seem like a chore, but for me, it is an enjoyable thing to…
