With all the negativity circulating social media and most often in my morning news feed, I made a couple of self-preservation decisions. One was to start my morning with coffee and my journal. In other words, I don’t start my day reading the stuff that gets my blood pumping. I’m journaling “almost” regularly now, like … Continue reading Honoring Friends
When I really, really knew. I’m talking profound, existential moments. The first time it hit me, really hit me, I was on a flight home from Santa Barbara. I’d been in California visiting a long-time, on again-off again boyfriend. What was different about this trip, as opposed to a handful of others to San Diego … Continue reading Three Times I’ve Felt Blessed
The 20th day. Present situation.
This is me. Saturday Todd and I ventured out to the Happiest Place on Earth - Home Depot.
