Oh wow!! Thank you, J.

Awwww. Thanks, friend!
Thank you for letting me know it resonated!
Thanks, Ashleigh!
"I want to take you for a ride on the bike," he declared, his eyes intent on me, a whisper of excitement curling up at the edges. It came out of nowhere. Our conversation consisted of the usual topics and always, always I tried to figure out where I stood... Continue reading

A year ago I joined Book Of The Month Club. I'd seen a few friends post about it and was really impressed by the selections. I figured I'd give a 3 month membership a try and see what I thought. I've been hooked ever since. The Book Of The Month... Continue reading

That's so great you're helping your friends figure out their types! It leads to such rich, interesting discussion, doesn't it? Don't worry too much about what's ahead on Jane The Virgin. It makes sense in the context of all the other big moves they've made and if you've made it through season 2, you'll be ok.

So much potential! But I also want to see the show move away from being so Josh Chan centric.

I found Lucy's attempts at a closer relationship with her parents to be very moving as well.

Catsitting I don't want to jinx us and say spring is here but I have certainly enjoyed the warmer-for-Minnesota weather the last week or so. It makes me miss living in Nashville and San Francisco a little less, too. To be honest, as much as I know I'm in the... Continue reading

While I was on The Practical Minimalists podcast to talk about the Enneagram last month, I noticed how often I said a type needed to "learn to be." Sometimes it was followed by a particular quality or lesson but often it was the literal state of being. While each type... Continue reading

While I talk a TON about the Enneagram in my every day life (sorry not sorry), I rarely accept invitations to talk about my favorite personality system on podcasts. But when Eryn and Heather of The Practical Minimalists approached me, I sensed they were kindred Enneagram spirits and said yes.... Continue reading

New Jim Crow is SO GOOD. Every month I'm like, "I really should finish it." But there's so much to absorb so I'm staying at this slow pace. I have been loving The Art Of Happiness! His innate goodness shines from the very pages. I hope the episode will be helpful to you. I have very strong feelings about the order so there's no way I could have been as unbiased and gracious as they were. Your friend's concern breaks my heart and I wish it wasn't warranted. I have to hope there are enough of us who will speak out against things like that happening.
No way to say it and stay spoiler-free!
The Bear and the Nightingale was so good and different! Hope you enjoy it.
Someday I want to have a Little Free Library of my own. I'm taking notes. I only managed to watch one episode of Jane The Virgin so I'm not up to the big twist yet. Hopefully soon!
Thanks, Michele!
