I booked a trip on Sunday evening for the spring and was talking about the pricing of various airline tickets and additional costs for baggage, etc. as we were looking at flights. I really appreciate the airlines who make it simple to pack your bags and fly without a bunch of extra cost.  If only…

When I was near the end of my MBA a few other commitments were coming to an end as well. I made a conscious decision as those things ended to say “no” to anything else for the rest of 2018. This would allow me some time to soak up some down time, to spend time…

A week ago I found something I thought I’d lost. Nothing super significant, more than anything just frustrated with myself I’d lost it.  When I found it you would have thought I found something really significant that was lost. In reality, it was just a little thing. But, it was found. Little things. They matter.…

A few weeks ago I was editing a document that included a sentence about asking for help.  The sentence said “I understand that asking for help is not a sign of weakness.” Somewhere over the years the idea of asking for help has become a weakness.

It’s been a while, there’s a few things on repeat lately, and you can bet I’ll#doitagain and continue to reach for these items. Acrylic earrings.  It’s no secret I love earrings, and these were a random local 19th Street boutique find…

I have gone through many seasons of morning routines; getting up really early or sleeping until the last possible minute. The getting up really early was sometimes because I wanted to, sometimes because of my work hours and sometimes because of commutes. The sleeping until the last minute was because of a season of illness,…

  Today is my Dad’s birthday, and we got to celebrate him this weekend. There’s a lot of lessons I’ve learned from my Dad through the years, but the one that sticks with me the most is courage.  I was pretty much a fearful kid. I didn’t really like trying new things, most of them…

Sunday. Sabbath. Rest. The one thing that seems so hard to find time for, but the one thing we all really need. And then, need to #doitagain regularly. Carving out time to rest looks different for everyone. Taking a walk. Time spent with someone who matters. Creating or crafting. Cooking or baking. Tending a garden…

Happy Saturday! This week was packed, two work events, rodeo meeting, Bible study and I was  glad for a Friday night at home! Of course when there’s a week that feels like there isn’t really spare time, is the week when something unexpected happens that you don’t really have time for. Hello, Wednesday. And, my…
