Resolutions & Word for the Year

Tweet It’s been over a month since I poured my heart out and let you all know where I’ve been in my life and what’s been going on. My life was completely in the hole… a deep, dark hole that I struggled to climb out of and when I did manage to get closer to…

The New & Improved Hallmark Rewards!

Tweet I love Hallmark cards. Honestly, I love all cards and was really sad when the two local Hallmark stores closed. Even more sad was that I wasn’t able to quickly run in and grab a cute card or gift for someone or collect more reward points. I was stuck with the cards that were…

41

Tweet Once a year we all reach a special milestone. Of course to some it’s not all that special and we’d rather ignore it and to others it’s a reason to celebrate for days and something that we look forward to all year. Yes, it’s our birthdays. Today I am 41… another year has passed…

Being accepting of your age and keeping a youthful spirit. Watching your diet and exercising, maintaining your looks the…

A somewhat random act of kindness

Tweet Last week the wonderful Wendy Nielsen shared this new series, 31 Day Blog Challenge, with those of us in a Facebook group (amazing group by the way). My first thought was cool! I can do this and then reality quickly set in and I realized that’s 31 days of blog posts…. 31 days straight….

The Idiot Driver

Tweet Okay, remember last week or so when I posted on Facebook about the idiot driver who rode my tail and then passed me in town and how he was getting his very own blog post? Well, this is it. So it was another Michigan morning and I was on my way to work. As…

Family Fun & Dinner
