The things we hang on to

It is a feeling of liberation mixed with sadness as I swept the last dead cricket out of my storage unit... a 10x30 space once filled to the brink with things I loved is now empty. Four years I've been hanging on to that storage unit and the things left inside. Four years that I've been holding on to "someday I'm going to need these again."   I'm glad that so many of those things went to people who needed them- most {keep reading}

Life Lessons - Part 1

Life Lessons - Part 1Lately I've been avoiding the blinking cursor on a blank page.  Y'all know I go through spells of silence so that's not really new... but lately, I've been seeing life lessons in the strangest of places.. and the thought occurred to me that I could share. Last week... maybe the week before actually, my Facebook feed BLEW UP.  Not with political rantings - although those were there.  Not with horrible news stories that incite anger and emotions from all over the {keep reading}

Captain America: Civil War - {A Slightly off kilter review}

Captain America: Civil War - {A Slightly off kilter review}It is no surprise that I'm a Marvel fan girl.  Definitely not as hard core as some, but a fan nonetheless.  So, when I was offered an opportunity to check out the latest installment in the Marvel Universe, Captain America: Civil War, I jumped at the chance.  Did I care that I had to drive through downtown Austin, during rush hour, taking roughly an hour an a half to drive 23 miles?  Nope.  Did I hesitate to rearrange my evening {keep reading}

Thoughts from the train

Most of y'all know that I've got a new gig that I LOVE.  It does mean that I am working downtown... which has it's upsides... Like working from the rooftop patio during nice weather... And my view from my office space: It does have it's downsides too... But I'm not fighting traffic at least because, as you know if you FaceStalk me, I take the train.  And the train commute is nothing if not entertaining. So over the last few weeks, I've jotted down a {keep reading}

Time for me

Time for meI shared a bit the other day about an amazing women's retreat at camp connect and the revelations from that weekend will continue to unfold here periodically.  One of the things I realized during some of those quiet moments of contemplation was just how little time I dedicate to taking care of me.  Why is that?  I have no issues putting others needs above my own but when it comes to taking care of me... I still struggle.  I'm in a good place right {keep reading}

The voices in our heads

This seems familiar…

Funny thing about vacations... There's always that bit of downtime where you can really think. (At least for me that's how it works.) There I sit in the mountains where everything is still and quiet (mostly because the boys are asleep) where I've got no … [Read more...]

Mawwiage… is what brings us together

I normally shy away from the political stuff here. I prefer to keep things light and fun... except when I get really deep about my own stuff but that's not really the point I'm trying to make. I like happy and today was filled with happy all over my … [Read more...]
