One Year Blogiversary!

My one year blogiversary was this past weekend. That means the blog has been alive and (mostly) well for one full year! Apparently that’s a pretty big accomplishment. As I reflect on this past year, I see how much I’ve changed, my life has changed, the blog has changed and the resulting feelings I have …

Gratitude Linkup – Week of 7/20/14

One of the best ways to have perspective, for me, is to remember the things I’m grateful for. There have been times when I’ve gotten stuck in negativity that I’ve done a quick gratitude list (in my head or with another) and started on the path of releasing that negativity. Gratitude lists help me to …

Everyone wants easy and quick, yet nutritious snacks. I especially want them for Baby Boy as he gets more and more into foods and wanting to eat. Instead of buying granola bars that are chock-full of things I definitely try not to give Baby Boy, I figured I could just make some for us to …

Music is the Soul of Life

I used to be a musician. I started when I was young. Although my formal training didn’t happen until elementary school, 3rd grade, I was surrounded by music as a child.

My Journey with Faith

Fairly recently, I came into quite a bit of God-talk. But not really the religious God-talk. It’s spiritual. It’s full. It’s open. It’s inviting. It’s forgiving. It’s graceful. It’s loving. It’s kind. It’s all the things that I don’t find or hear from the religious God-talk. There’s a difference. And it’s profound. And it’s sending …
