A glimpse into my past

October 13, 2014

Memories live in our minds and come back to us at random times. Sometimes we do our best to remember how we thought or felt around a specific moment, but it’s hard to capture it exactly…like we’re looking at it through a fog. But sometimes, we discover something that takes us back and gives us a detailed glimpse into the mind of our past. Last week, my mother brought over my autobiography from middle school. I must have been 13 years old. It was FASCINATING to say the least, and [...]

Fall Fashion with J. Jill #purejill

J Jill Store

At the beginning of the year, I was introduced to J. Jill, a store I’d passed by in the mall a million times but never gone inside. Their clothes looks comfortable yet stylish and I had been meaning to go back in now that the cooler weather is occasionally descending upon us. Make it 60 degrees and sunny. Throw me a pair of boots, jeans and sweater and I’m one very happy camper. Then I had the opportunity to put an outfit together from their Pure Jill line and I [...]

Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

Last night, I hit up a preview of Disney’s newest movie, Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. It was a rare, me only, movie experience. Since it was a later showing and not animated, I left Mr. A at home. I went it hoping for a cute, lighthearted family movie and that’s exactly what I got. The movie follows the exploits of 11-year-old Alexander (Ed Oxenbould) as he experiences the most terrible and horrible day of his young life—a day that begins with gum stuck in [...]

I ran into an old friend – me

This weekend was a weekend unlike any weekend I’d had in awhile. I saw someone I hadn’t seen in quite a long time. Me. You see, this weekend I had a chance to connect with all facets of my life. I had business moments, family moments, marriage moments and friendship moments.  It was a miracle to say the least and a much needed one. How often do we really get to be our whole selves? I’d missed her. At the beginning of the year, I embarked on this quest to take [...]

This is how my morning started

October 2, 2014

I didn’t know that we were going to have a moment this morning when I got out of bed. We ate our breakfast, you and your brother played a game or two on your LeapPads and the phones. We got dressed and brushed teeth. I was thrilled that when I asked you to get into the car, the normal whining didn’t occur. Then you fell and scraped up your shin. Nothing major, no blood but you wanted a band-aid anyway. I was happy to oblige; that’s a battle I just [...]
