Better late than never

I started out with the best of intentions - planning to post at least once a week, well here we are, almost a month since my last post. I could come up with a list of excuses, all of which would be true, but the short of it is a lot has happened and it's been a busy month. Better late than never though, right?!

Let's see, in the last month I've been going crazy trying to finish moving and unpacking...

Road trip with Mom

Every year since my BFF moved to Walla Walla, I have seen her post pictures from the Mother’s Day weekend Balloon Stampede. And every year I have said I wanted to go see the balloons. This year my mom and I drove the 5 hours and almost 400 miles to Walla Walla. We finally made it to the Balloon Stampede! However … the balloons did not...

Discovering the missing peace

They think that because you got your miracle everything is better now...

Finding treasure at the beach

The clam shells we found on the beachIt was a great Easter yesterday with my family. We were over at my mom's and by mid-afternoon, the sugar rush was in high gear. So we ventured over to Kayak Point to burn off some 4 year-old energy at the park. The girls ran all over the playground, climbing and jumping. Oh, to have that much energy.

After a bit my daughter, E, was ready for a break. So H stayed with daddy while E and I went to walk down the pier...

Cultivating Patience sprouts

A lot has happened in my life over the last two years, and I'm coming to realize that I've been letting life happen to me instead of taking an active role in living it – reacting instead of acting. It’s time for that to change.

This blog, and the website it sits on, are my attempt at finding some focus and rediscovering what makes me, me. I tend to be a bit of a procrastinator, ok - a huge procrastinator...
