Several of my twitter friends have shared a New York Times article over the last couple of weeks. I hadn't had time to read it, but so many people I respect kept commenting on it. So I saved it in my handy Instapaper to read later. Having now read it, I can see why it's … Continue reading who is influencing you?

green grapes and gray water
This *might* end up being the most random post I've ever written. Then again, I write a lot of random stuff all the time so who knows. Hang on for the ride. On Wednesday of last week I flew to California to visit my fella. First off, it was so, so great to see him. … Continue reading green grapes and gray water
I really like your dress!
Does anyone else out there struggle receiving compliments? Don't get me wrong, I love hearing them in my soul. They make me feel so good. It's almost like every one you get, it is a helium balloon tied to your thoughts...it just keeps lifting them up. And when you're not used to hearing compliments in … Continue reading I really like your dress!

peace like welcome rain
Good morning, friends and Happy Sunday! It's raining here in Missouri, again. I'm pretty sure it's been raining for the last 6 months. It has been the weirdest year here in the midwest. Lately I've been so grumpy when it rains. Now that I'm living alone and yard duties are mine, every time it rains … Continue reading peace like welcome rain

Because of your words I decided not to delete it. I saw this quote the other day and decided to share … Continue reading you enjoy YOU.
two sides of the same coin
Change is good and change is hard. My therapist once told me that every relationship (especially marriage) is a contract that has to constantly be renegotiated. We are human and we change. Because of those changes, negotiation has to happen or the relationship breaks. I think that can happen to your relationship with yourself too. … Continue reading two sides of the same coin
there is an upside
I've had one of those days today where my emotions have been up/down/up/down/up/down. REPEAT TIMES 1,000. I've been so "up" that I've giggled with satisfaction of a big win, and I've been so "down" that I literally almost passed out because my adrenaline dropped from anxiety/stress over other news. Yeah, it's been a day. But … Continue reading there is an upside
For some reason lately I've started every conversation with the greeting "Yo." Or "Heyo." I have no idea where it has come from, but when you get a "yo" from me instead of a "hello", welcome to being my friend. You want to know something funny?
