This is a bit late for a "new years" post, but well sometimes that's just how I roll. I started this blog a year ago. My intention was to simply chronicle my journey as a newly single mom in private. I wrote for a few months before I ever had... Continue reading

I feel compelled to write about the death of Steve Jobs. Having been a HUGE Apple fan since the very first Apple computer was released (when they were actually called Apples), I want to share my thoughts on his passing. Last night when I learned of his death I took... Continue reading

I heard that on the radio today, and of course I have heard it many times before. I have decided that I just don't like it AT ALL. I have this internal voice that is so incredibly stong inside of me that tells me that when anything good happens something... Continue reading

Recently I have been stressing over that fine line between "is this where I am supposed to be?" and "should I be doing something different?". It keeps coming up for me . . .EVERYWHERE! My word for the year as many of you know is "be". Just be. Life has... Continue reading

I've been on a blog hiatus this summer. Frankly I've been having too much fun just living my life. When I returned from Greece I came home with a renewed sense of joy for life, and the knowledge that I had a lot more living to do. New friends When... Continue reading

This summer is flying by. Here are some pics because there are no words to describe the craziness and unexpected fun we have had. My summer started in May with a trip to Greece and Istanbul with my youngest brother. It was amazing. Santorini, Greece May 2011 Mykonos, Greece May... Continue reading

Yesterday I was reading an interesting article about the Rapture. Now normally I would not have even opened the article, but Michelle Vargas had posted it on her tumblr site. And since I regulary want to reach through the interweb and squeeze her with a great big hug because she... Continue reading

I am supposed to be packing. I have many lists . . what to pack, what to do before I go, what to read etc. The "what to read" list is driving me nutty. I have purchased WAY too many books in the past couple of months. For some reason... Continue reading

Fear seems to be circling it's wagons around me lately. Life continues to move forward. Change is scary, even when it is for the better. I picture the "change" as looming on the sidelines just waiting to strike. If I step back from what seems to be my "go to"... Continue reading

I have always heard the phrase "it takes a village" and I never really thought much about it until I became a single mother. Looking back I have always relied on the help of others to help raise my children, but I didn't truly understand this at the time. My... Continue reading

"Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies." -Andy Dufresne (Morgan Freeman) in Shawshank Redemption I have been thinking about hope a lot lately. Mainly because I have been feeling pretty hopeless. Why is it that we are in this dark place... Continue reading

I just read your intro for Playing Big and thought "wow, she sounds just like me" and then I clicked on your blog link. I had to laugh out loud (when you see my blog you will know why ;0) ). I love this post, and I too find that my children help me to be present in the moment. I look forward to the Playing Big journey with you ;0)! Jenn

Today I got a new pair of running shoes. I am not sure that anyone has been so excited about a pair of sneakers before that they blogged about it. But my inner critic is telling me "Why would anyone want to read about your shoes?" So just to show... Continue reading

I typically referr to my 21 month old and our 1yr old pup as litter mates. Watching their interaction is one of the sweetest things. UNTIL Austin forgets that he is a human and not a dog and decides he is going to eat dog food too. Recently I have... Continue reading

Thank you Beth! I am loving the class. I wish I had more time to participate in the discussion and sharing. I am so busy right now that I am trying just to have fun with it on the weekends. Thanks for stopping by!!
Dillon has his first T-Ball game this past weekend. I must start out by telling you that he takes his sports VERY seriously . . .at 5 ;0)! He told me, "Mom, I have NO time for pictures, I've got a game to play!" Did I mention he is five??... Continue reading

Rebecca, I just learned how to reply to a comment . . yay! I have taken my camera with me every where lately . . I am totally obsessed with the lens you suggested. Getting ready to share more pics with the flickr group. You are already a great mom, and I know if you have human babies one day you are going to ROCK IT!

Sorry it's taken me so long to repsond. I just figured out how to do it . .ha! Thank you! One thing Rebecca taught me is that it's never too late to "encapsulate". I agree about the e-courses. I feel surrounded by love and acceptance. I fear the teenage years, so you will be in my thoughts ;0)!! Enjoy every second you can with them.

Thank you. I find that when I share my secrets they lose their power. But I have to make sure I share them in a safe environment. If you are ever ready to share I am always here. Your comment is such a blessing to me. YAY wishBIG camp. See you round the campire ;0)!

Don't you just love that word?? Well I do. I have been taking Rebecca Murphy's Encapsulate e-course for the past month. It was her first time giving the course, and you would have never known it. She is a VERY gifted teacher and huge inspiration to me. My word for... Continue reading

Yesterday was the most glorious, ordinary day. It is Sping Break this week and so I am home with my kids. I can honestly say that going into this week I was a bit scared, "What am I going to do with them all week?" Normally we would have a... Continue reading
