What the Olympics Mean to Me

I have to admit that watching Michael Phelps swim his last laps in the Olympic pool during the relay had me biting my nails. I’ve really loved watching the Rio Olympic Games. I can sort of identify with the dedication and commitment of the athletes since I’ve been teaching in the fitness [...]

Gratitude & Goals (July/August)

Don’t freak out, but there are only 139 days left until Christmas! That said, it’s never too early to start shopping and tucking away those gifts, right? I don’t know about you but it seems like this summer has flown by at warp speed. I’ve only checked off three items from my summer [...]

5 on Friday: Let the Chiseling Begin

So much is stirring in my heart and in my head this week. I’m fresh off of attending my first faith bloggers conference last weekend and what an amazing weekend it was. God moved mightily and I am so, so grateful. This 5 on Friday post is an update series, a culmination of goodness that is [...]

5 On Friday: A Sweet Week

5 on Friday is my weekly post about five random things. Things on my mind, things that happened to make the week special, maybe even five fun things you need to know about. It was a busy week, you know the kind where your schedule is so jam packed you just roll from one thing to the next without [...]

Today. Tomorrow. Gratitude & Goals.

If I had one word to sum up the summer so far, it’d have to be adventure. June was full of unexpected happenings under the guise of a bucket list. I was able to check off a few things on the list with some great memories to show for it too. June was also marked by an incredible gift from [...]

5 On Friday: Praying for Peace

It’s difficult today to think about anything else but our community and our country. In the wake of the Dallas sniper ambush, and the fatal police shootings in Louisiana and Minnesota, I wonder just where that breaking point is that we’ll finally take action, any kind of action. I wonder when [...]

6 Fun Facts I Declare

It was Christmas morning and I opened the packaging on a gift my dad had sent me. There it was, a ticket to my first bloggers conference. It was just like Ralphie’s Red Ryder BB gun in A Christmas Story. Only at this blogging conference I won’t be putting my eye out. So you can imagine my [...]

5 on Friday: Then Greatness Happened

It’s awesome when you find a link-up that you’d like to join with other bloggers and you can’t figure out the technology. That’s when you call someone much smarter than you. This link up thing is a pretty cool way of getting discovered and making new friends. Here’s [...]

Magnolia Market at the Silos: My Visit in Photos

My first trip to Waco to visit Magnolia Market at the Silos, in search of Joanna and Chip Gaines. It was really a cool place with so much more than housewares and decor. When in Waco you must stop by! Sadly, I did not run into the HGTV stars! This is the church you’ll want to park at. If [...]
