I attended one of the most interesting, moving, emotional, musical, inspiring, and eye-opening memorials yesterday for an old friend. I truly don't mean this to be a somber post. Because I'm not feeling somber. I just was so intrigued by this gathering and I can't fight the urge to talk... Continue reading

Love Is Love We can't help who we love. Or how much we love them. And when you lose someone you love that meant the world to you, whether human or pet, love is love...and it's a loss. I lost my best friend last week. He was hairy, and snored,... Continue reading

I love that her name was Inez. I wanna say that name every day. I get that I don't get it. "Life" is ever changing, always surprising, and they should probably print that in wikipedia. And you know what definition they should remove from wiki? Plan. Cause I don't feel... Continue reading

You wanna know how I believe there is a heaven? Because I have seen some of the most inspiring beautiful people leave this world too early in life. Or too early it seemed to me. But what do I truly know. I know that I don't want to live in... Continue reading

It was (joy) pain, sunny days and rain. 2013 brought so much to my life. It brought people in, as well as took them away. It brought the most amazing opportunities and also closed some doors which I yanked on for a long time. It took me across the country,... Continue reading

You never know how something will affect you, until it affects you. And the effects of this situation....well they suck. Did I use affect and effect correctly?! He would have been mad at me if not. So I kind of hope it's wrong and I'll get a call from him... Continue reading

Before Going through Security for the Capitol I am slowly piecing together the events of last week from my trip to sing at the Capitol. It might sound silly, but it's taking me longer than expected to be able to sit down and write about it properly because it was... Continue reading

(I should be cooking...but was feeling a need to be expressive...turkey can wait!) I am beyond thankful this year. I know many take this time of year, particularly today, to say words of that nature. But to me, there is no greater feeling than telling someone you are thankful for... Continue reading

I don't know why certain people, or projects, or ideas come into my life Or what new journey will present itself with the bright beginning of each day. But it's the not knowing that is the most exciting because it keeps me on my toes and proves that I am... Continue reading

I try to spend Friday's flushing my brain of random thoughts and information from the previous week. I need all the space I can get in there. I'll never be fully flushed... Bill Clinton's dog's name is Seamus. That's my husband's name. I'm not sure what it all means, but... Continue reading

Identical twins. They're a funny thing, aren't they? But when you think of twins you think of cute newborn babies, crying helplessly for their parents. The father holds one...the mother holds one. Or you think of two cute little 5 year old boys, wearing matching khakis and polos heading to... Continue reading

I live in Tennessee. And I'm reminded of it every day. And these little reminders make me smile:) I keep my makeup brushes in a mason jar. I drink whiskey (and just about everything else) out of a mason jar. Oh, I drink whiskey. I prefer a fire and a... Continue reading

Sometimes random thoughts take up room in my brain. And by sometimes, I mean always. Friday seems like a good day to recap and rid the random thoughts from the past week.... They say pets always seem to "match" their owners. I own pugs. And I am convinced pugs are... Continue reading

I have been in a state of reflection lately. Reflection on my youth, my past relationships, and my journey from yesterday to today. I've been looking at my life in segments, as pieces of a puzzle that are all finally beginning to fit together, although still a work in progress.... Continue reading

I love my job. And I don't have one. And I'm always working. I worked for some time in corporate America, in a cubicle, long hours, so frazzled and on-call for someone else that I would tend to forget who I really was. Or maybe I didn't even know at... Continue reading

It's no secret...I like to talk. Luckily....I also like to listen! I also like to sing, clap, laugh, stomp my feet, raise my voice in heated conversations, make music with friends, make funny noises, tell people how much I appreciate them, and share stories of amazing people, places and adventures....

I was an emotional child. I still AM an emotional child. I have recently come across old tapes (yes, tapes) of me singing and blabbing into my Fisher Price tape recorder (yes, tape recorder). My poor mother and father had to find the strength to ignore me, and the patience... Continue reading

Roomie, whether I comment or not, I am always following you and reading of your adventures. I have to admit that this Thursday morning post made me cry. Yup. Hearing the gorilla's side took me back to times when I knew you were falling in love and there was nothing you could do about it (yet). To watch what your relationship wasn't, to what it was, to what it is has been so amazing. And the fact that you're getting the gorilla of all people to talk about it, makes my heart happy :)

I am very blessed to have a beautiful, independent, creatively talented friend, The Hollywood Housewife. We've experienced so many things together and know each other all to well. She was my freshman year college roomate, my Los Angeles roomate, my bridesmaid, and my confidant for many years (probably heard and... Continue reading

When it rains, it pours. And my life is never the exception. June 16, 2007, Dallas, TX. The months leading up to this date had been consumed with massive rains and flooding. I had planned, 7 months prior, an outdoor wedding. And refused to have a backup plan, because it... Continue reading

Boise, ID. Ummm, potatoes? Cold? That was about all I knew of this cozy little city, much to my chagrin. It’s so much more than that! It was so wonderful. I haven’t quite returned my jaw to it’s closed position after dropping it repeatedly at the beauty of the mountains, beauty of the people, and beauty of the event we were a part of last weekend.

25 miles. That should take around 20 minutes to drive on the freeway, right? Not on Sunday, Dec. 12, 2010. It took the Chrysler 300 I was riding in 7 and a half hours to go approximately 2 miles that afternoon. Did I eat before we left? No. Did I... Continue reading

First of all, let me acknowledge, I am not going to make any excuses as to why it's been so long in between posts. I will just apologize and let you know, it shall not happen again. Long Hauler Lawler is back, and in it to win it. Are we... Continue reading
