Day 31: My October

I can’t believe tomorrow is November. Thankfully my Christmas shopping started in July but I must confess I’m ready to put my tree up now. Time this month has just flown by so I won’t speed things up. For now I’ll just take things day by day. October was a very busy month. [...]

Day 30: When Lies Are Louder Than Truth

The weight I’ve felt over the past couple of days has felt like a pair of 110lb bar bells resting squarely on my heart. The weight of past hurts and wounds came rushing back like a high speed bullet train. Shame took the center stage of my heart as shards of unworthiness and feelings of not [...]

Day 29: Return To The Backyard

It’s been six months to the day marking my last visit to my very own back yard. The last time I was back there my first dog, a 12 year old beagle named Skylar had run back there during her morning routine to do her business. I was taking my usual route and walked through the house to meet [...]

Day 28: 5 On Friday

Day 27: Enjoy Her While She’s Young

These words of advice hit me like a torpedo as I lamented Scout’s season of teething. My friend said, you know you really should enjoy her while she’s young, she won’t be this way forever. I don’t think it matters whether we’re talking about a child or a dog, our time [...]

Day 26: Pumpkin Chip Bread on Ntl Pumpkin Day

Don’t tell anyone, but I made this recipe three times last fall! I couldn’t get enough of it. It’s the kind of tea bread that when you have one piece you want another. So on October 26th, recognized as National Pumpkin Day I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate than [...]

Day 25: Why I Love Orange Theory Fitness

I’ve been in love with working out at Orange Theory for over a year now. When I first started I thought WOA there’s no way I can do this. But I quickly found that yes I could. My stamina and endurance quickly increased to a point where I could handle the load. Day after day I see I can push [...]

Day 24: A Presidential Campaign To Remember

It was a harmonious campaign with two qualified passionate people vying for the role of President. The two competitors would work to earn votes, promoting their platforms using every kind of channel possible. Both candidates would learn lessons that would last a lifetime in hopes of taking the top [...]

Day 20: Why I Won’t Sleep Tonight

I can’t believe it’s just 24 hours away. I’ve been waiting all year for this. In the morning I’ll be headed to my first big blogging conference in Houston, Blog Elevated. I’ve been in frantic preparation mode for days. Business cards, a media kit, the right clothes, [...]

Day 18: My Prayer Tonight

Dear Gracious God, Thank you for this day that you have given me. Father thank you for loving me.
