Beginnings & Boldness Boldness to begin - that's what I need and what I want. Yet, I hardly know where to begin. In every way, that is how I’ve been feeling lately. I’ve experienced many endings, most of them painful. Many new beginnings, most of them filled with gulps. Life is an adventure. And I [...]

Growing Spaces Space seemed like the final frontier. Growing was a bit uncomfortable. To think about how to grow into my space or make my space grow was more challenging than I had anticipated. For months, I’ve been using my home office as studio/office with a few inconveniences. It had rug in it. This is nice on feet [...]
Covers vs Blankets Woke up to a skiff of snow this morning. A bit early for this time of the year, pretty and crisp and all I wanted to do was stay under the covers. Yet I didn’t reach for extra blankets. I just wanted to stay warm under the covers I already had. The [...]
The other day my offspring discovered crabapple jelly. A revolution for breakfast, perfect for peanut butter sandwiches and who knows what else! Made lovingly by someone who loves us, not that I remember who. But it is quite obvious that if you’re giving crab apple jelly, there is definitely some love happening. In my house, [...]
I’ve put my boots on. Several times. And taken them off only to notice my immediate need for them. Some may think that boots fall short of achieving fashion forward status, but this type of fine footwear have become dear decks to me. In fact, my heart does a little leap just thinking about them.

Before diving into dinner talk, let's start with some highly important high chair chitchat. There are times in everyone’s life when there is a seemingly minor course correction that has dramatic implications. I am not talking about the times (yes plural) where my car has grazed the solid line or the last minute dash to the dairy [...]
It’s 1 am. I’m replaying the events of the previous day and I’m wracked with regret. It’s the ordinary being unveiled again. My ordinary day that was filled with extraordinary blessings, moments and grace was taken over by my character issues. How can I ditch this disappointment that I created? The house always wins. This is how I’ve been [...]
How many times have you allowed your own or others’ agendas of the tyranny of the almighty schedule to sap the very life out of you? Forgive me for once again being the Queen of the Obvious but have you ever noticed that when you ‘Do-Do’ too much that ‘Oh, Oh’ is added to one’s [...]
I finally did it. I really accomplished something. I wondered for years if I would ever be able to achieve this particular feat. Over much time, I watched others expertly triumph in this area, realizing my day of truth and opportunity would someday come. Never in a million years did I ever think that this year would [...]
Darkness and light are not like pepper and salt. Pepper and salt season food. Using both makes food come alive. But there's no obligatory proportion or recipe for using these seasonings. Some like a combination or prefer one to the other. I am a pepper person myself, the more the better. Add to that dill, onions and [...]
