M.I.A.

M.I.A.

M.I.A. I've been missing around the blogosphere. (anxiety) There's been a lot that I want to share from my earlier travels and I've thought...maybe I can get to that tomorrow...and then I don't. So today is a check-in of sorts. I'll probably add some photos from my archives because I can't imagine one of my [...]

Time Marches On

Time Marches On

The Evolution of Me. We are always changing. Right? Just by the sheer nature of life surrounding us, it is almost impossible to be stagnant. I started this blog about 2 1/2 years ago. As a journey of discovery. A seeking of who I am outside of society's definition of me (mother, wife, daughter, sister, [...]

Seaside Chat

Seaside Chat

Friday. It's technically Friday, although I struggle to keep track of the days. I suppose this is sort of like a Friday Faves, but as I mentioned in Tuesday's post, it's more like a seaside chat.   Seaside Chat. Miss Sunshine and I moved into our little cottage last Friday.

Still Here

Still Here

Still Here. Just in case you thought I've disappeared from the blogosphere, I wanted to pop in and tell you that I'm still here.   I think that this may the longest that I've ever gone without writing a post. 11 days...in fact. I've missed you all, but have also found little time to sit [...]

Aruba. I know that you all are waiting for photos from my trip to Aruba. They are coming. I promise. Photography. I'm clearing out computer space to import them. My laptop is already full and there's the moving of things to an external hard drive. I shot all my photos in RAW this time. I [...]

Why I Celebrate International Women’s Day

Why I Celebrate International Women’s Day

International Women's Day. I often talk about my beliefs about the equal rights for women. I keep it no secret that while I have chosen what many consider a "traditional" role for a woman (stay-at-home mom, household manager, chauffeur...take your pick of the many of things I do), it is exactly that...A CHOICE. A choice [...]

Relax

Relax

Relax. Re•lax (verb). Make or become less tense or anxious.   Reminder. Today I needed a reminder to relax. I thought that perhaps some of you might need the reminder as well. One of my favorite places to relax, to become less tense or anxious, is along the shoreline of the ocean. Just Breathe. According [...]

I’m the Mother of an Adult

I’m the Mother of an Adult

Eighteen Years Old. Does anyone else remember what it was like to turn eighteen years old? I do. There are some days when it feels like yesterday. And days like today, where it feels as though it must have been an eternity ago. Today, my oldest child turned eighteen. How in the world did that [...]
