Blue Eyes – Part 1

She stood there at the bus stop, waiting for her bus to arrive. The morning was cold and snowy. She tried to enjoy the weather as she watched people hurriedly walk by. The bench she decided to sit down on was empty, except for the grocery bag she held between her hands. Life wasn't bad for her, but it ...

Hey you! If you've been following along each Sunday for the products I'm enjoying most, this is one you definitely don't want to miss.

Beautiful Change

Change is inevitable beautiful. As the warm summer weather leaves us, it becomes clear that the season is over and fall has begun. Fall is a season that will teach us many things, if we're willing to learn. It's nature's way of showing us how to gracefully let go of the old and accept the beginning of ...

Caught By Surprise

Maybe we even think we know ourselves and then through a series of events, we surprise ourselves with what we're capable of. For me, gymnastics is one of the many areas of my life ...

Sunday “Must Haves” – Arbonne Cosmetics

In the past, I've always been wary of "consultants" and have steered clear of these different types ...

Too Old For This

The title of this post is what echoed in my mind the moment I thought about taking gymnastics classes again. I had recently turned 25 and as much as I missed gymnastics, the thought of putting on a leotard and tumbling around on the floor with children made me cringe. As a young adult woman, there ...

Just A Table Away

Tonight I met up with some friends at a local cafe. We had a great time and I decided to hang out a little longer even after they had left. As I pulled out my laptop, I overheard the table across the way from me speaking about something that caught my ear. As I listened (discretely) ...

When Life Gives You Lemons

Make lemonade. Or as someone once said...throw those lemons back at life and tell it to make its own. darn. lemonade. Smile reader - sometimes life hands us things we don't know how to handle. Sometimes we'll cry, sometimes we'll laugh, and if you're anything like you me, you might evenView post
