Hi Lynn! Oh, absolutely... Can't believe it was time to consider doing a holiday compilation post. Feels like I was just writing last years "gratitude" post.

Hello Here We Are readers, listeners, and video watchers... Oh my gosh, another year has gone by and we are back to the holiday season. I've gotten a number of emails about preparing for the holidays, and I took a look at what people are recently searching and finding on HWA... Thought I'd combine... Continue reading

After the recent article, Become The Light, I began thinking about what it actually means in terms of actions we can each take to become the light that will change the world (that article was sadly prompted by yet ANOTHER evil tragedy [that took place in Las Vegas]). While there are broad, complex issues... Continue reading

HI Sarah, Oh, so sweet of you to say. Wish we didn't have to write articles about stuff like this! Thank you for sharing the quote, I agree... This is the time to somehow stop this awful behavior in our society, when is enough going to be enough? Thx for commenting, I appreciated that you shared your thoughts. :)

Hi Ruth! Thank you. I'm sad to even have to write about this event... Wish it never happened. Hope this is the last one ever.

After the horrific events that took place this week in Las Vegas, like everyone else I find myself speechless and heartbroken. I've been struggling all week to figure out what I can say, write, or do to help. When I looked at the Here We Are editorial calendar for ideas, every item of better,... Continue reading

As the new autumn season falls into our lives with promises of sweet apple pie, spooky pumpkins, cozy sweaters, and crisp cool breezes, it's time to reset our focus. Everyone is busy checking off one list after another, but being busy should not be an excuse to miss out on wonderful autumnal experiences. That... Continue reading

Oh my gosh, Betty, I am so pleased to hear this. Thank you for sharing. Keep me posted on your progress. Mary Shores' idea about "starting" has been helping me stay on track, too. Simple but powerful guidance!

Thank you, Robin. What a good idea about the pit... I will try that, too. I've done it with an avocado pit and grew a nice plant. LMK if it works for you.

When I say "mango ice made easy," I mean EEEEAAASY! This recipe serves up a tasty, full of flavor, sweet, refreshing treat. You'll wonder why you haven't made it before, I know I did! While mangoes aren't something I usually buy or cook with, I had a mango salsa over mahi-mahi recently that reminded... Continue reading

Part 26 of the Here We Are series: Live Your Life Out Loud What if I told you there is a new book that offers you a "Step-By-Step guide to harnessing the power of your words to change your mind, your choices, and your life" in a way that is DOABLE? If this speaks... Continue reading

I'm enjoying some spa water as I'm replying to comments! There is something so enjoyable about these easy to make water blends. The added fruit and herbs takes plain old H2O to a whole new level. Glad you like this idea, thanks for commenting!

LOL! Glad to hear it. Thanks for commenting. Slowing down really does add to the enjoyment of whatever it is you are doing.

That is ambitious, Michelle! So glad this idea has inspired you. My book reading has also increased because I added a few that have been on my shelf to my summer fun list. It's working!!

Thanks Lynn! I like to watch the squirrels... And yes, kids are great sources of inspiration. I've been checking my list off each week. Still a lot left to do but enjoying each item.

There are those of us who are either water drinkers or not... If you are, spa water will entice you to drink more water, and if you aren't, you'll be pleasantly surprised how quickly sweetened beverages lose their sparkle. Spa water, AKA water infused with fruit, vegetables, and herbs, is a wonderful, refreshing, less... Continue reading

Thank you, Joe! I am glad you like the Chick Flick Chat, and the movie ;) Yes, I think it is getting a bit bashed, the reviews are strangely negative with little appreciation for what is good about this film. I'm planning on doing more CFC's on a regular basis. Hope you'll listen again soon.
1 reply
Oh, Thank you! The film is decent, and it has a lot of well produced aspects. A lot of the reviews are really bad, but I don't think it falls to that level. Definitely worth watching once.

In this Sofia Coppola directed film, the Civil War sets the stage for a complex attempt to examine the relationships between men and women, their roles, stereotypes, and desires. Join me as I discuss The Beguiled, starring Nicole Kidman, Colin Farrell, Kirsten Dunst, and Elle Fanning, and all its many layers that could have... Continue reading

Remember when you were a kid at this time of year, sitting in the classroom, daydreaming about what the summer would be like when school got out? Why not do that now? Daydream about what the upcoming months could be like for you, allow yourself to remember that excitement and expectation of feeling free... Continue reading
