This Merry-Go-Round Called Life

This Merry-Go-Round Called Life

Any of you who have been following me for a while know that I do a lot of pondering on the meaning of my life and the meaning of life in general. Recently, I have been feeling like this existence is just a merry-go-round.... get up, make the donuts... you know how it goes (if [...]

Friday Faves – “Outdoor” Edition

Friday Faves – “Outdoor” Edition

Friday. Outdoor Edition. I can't believe it's already Friday!! This week has been packed. Last Saturday, the middle child took the test to obtain his driving learner's permit. And he passed! Phew! Sunday was unseasonably (and highly welcomed) warm.  The hubby and I took a stroll on the Roanoke River Greenway, where I came upon this [...]

Hiking in Virginia? Here’s How to Hike Dragon’s Tooth

Hiking in Virginia? Here’s How to Hike Dragon’s Tooth

Hiking in Virginia. Hiking, anyone? How about some hiking in Virginia? You might remember from my Friday Faves post that I mentioned that since moving to Virginia I like to go hiking. Usually, I just go on short hikes. And I'm gonna be honest about why... I don't want to have to pee in the woods. [...]

Friday Faves – Week 2

  Friday. Edition 2. It's Friday!! I'm back with another round of Friday Faves! Bronzer.

Distracted Organization

Distracted Organization

  Do you have a variety of collections? Do you need to organize them? Are you easily distracted? If you answered yes to any or all of these, then we have something in common! 🙂 Our house has been a continual work in progress.  I don't like to buy new pieces of furniture very often [...]

Love in Action

Love in Action

Valentine's Day. Happy Valentine's Day!! A day that has become symbolic with love. How do you show somebody that you love them? Is it with chocolate, wine, and roses? A heartfelt letter proclaiming your undying love? Or is it much more simple? A shy smile, an intertwining of fingers as you stroll along, a stolen [...]

Decisions, Decisions…

Decisions, Decisions…

Decisions, Decisions. I know that Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow on Groundhog Day and we are supposed to have an even longer winter, but I can tell why some of the other groundhog's didn't make the same prediction. Virginia Weather. The weather here in Virginia has been very indecisive. 30's one day with snow flurries and biting [...]

Don’t wait until it’s too late

Don’t wait until it’s too late

  Don't Wait.   The trouble is, you think you have time. -Jack Kornfield I have never professed to be a good housekeeper. Indeed I am far from it. But I am trying. Part of that is working on the process of decluttering. I could talk all day about that process. And I may... but [...]

Musings from my active mind

Musings from my active mind

The real me.... Ok, not the really, real me.... there is a snapchat filter.  No makeup... No sleep... not a great combo for me.  I do reserve the right to maintain some of my dignity. Thanks so much for the love on yesterday's post.  In the beginning, I almost deleted it.  But being real is [...]
