Ecclesiastes 3 states that there is a time for everything in life. I’ve always found this verse comforting through the highs and lows of my life, knowing that it is all part of God’s plan for us. But although the verses talk about time to laugh and time to dance, how often do we take […]Read more "A Time To Play"
What is that old saying? “One person’s trash is another person’s treasure.” What I’ve always taken that to mean is that something that looks uninteresting or offensive to one person looks beautiful to someone else. So when I show you the photo below, what do you see? Because I see possibility! Your first question might […]Read more "Stream of Consciousness Sunday: What Do You See?"
Dove recently started a sponsored Twitter campaign to encourage women to speak more positively of themselves and each other. Their hashtag #SpeakBeautiful doesn’t appear to be trending in my area but why couldn’t we make it so? I used to be the most brutal person ever with self talk.

Tonight, the Seattle Seahawks and the New England Patriots will face off in Super Bowl XLIX in Arizona. The coaches and players on both teams are among the very best in their professions. Very few men make it to these esteemed ranks and even fewer can say that they played in a Super Bowl. You […]Read more "Confidence – Super Bowl Edition"
My husband is a Car Guy. Which, by association, makes me a Car Girl. So when he asked me if I would like to go to the 2015 Washington Auto Show, of course I said Yes! Held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Downtown DC, the show takes up two floors and is […]Read more "Washington Auto Show"
Earlier this month, I joined in my friend Nicole’s #HAND campaign. If you remember, #HAND stands for “Have A Nice Day” and the initiative is to write something positive and uplifting about someone (or in my case, once I did a something!) and tag them so that they could see it. It was meant to […]Read more "A #HAND Update"
