Do You Have 10 Minutes to Spare?

  I’ve been reading on some other, really great blogs, about the imperative to be consistent in order to grow an audience.  I totally agree, and I’ve pledged to do my best to be consistent in my own posting.  I’m actually very impressed with some of my favorite bloggers’ ability to post something every day,...

Doggie Etiquette

  I’ve been wanting to write about this for some time, even though it makes me sound petty and not very neighborly.  Specifically, I’m referring to the unwritten etiquette of taking a dog out into the world, whether for a walk, a run or just to hang out at the park.  I shall elaborate.

W. Bush.  There was, of course, much pomp and circumstance during the procession and the... Continue Reading →

Unpacking The Box

Holidays are always a mixed bag of emotions for most of us.  This Thanksgiving was, in many ways, one of our family’s best.  All the kids were home, everyone got along, it was relaxing and totally fun.  But for me, something occurred that opened some very old wounds and left me feeling completely deflated. We... Continue Reading →

Finding the Magic

As you can see from my post feed, it's been quite awhile since I last posted here.  And while it sounds cliche, as I look back I am quite surprised at both how much I've changed and how much more myself I've become.  This journey I'm on has taken some unexpected twists and turns.  For...
