Less Than 3 Months #40in2020

3 months from yesterday is my 40th birthday!  I have been thinking about it A LOT over the last couple of months. Have I accomplished what I thought that I would by the time I am 40?  What do I still want to do over the next 90 days?  Do I have my priorities in […]

Yesterday Pt 2

A couple of years ago I wrote this post… Yesterday Well this is the same story, only it happened again.  My husband says that it isn’t the same.  Tell that to my heart because it sure feels the same. 8 weeks ago we picked up a foster pup from a shelter.  We didn’t know anything […]

96 days until #40in2020

Mother’s Day was just a few days ago.  I suppose most of us are aware of that.  This year for Mother’s Day I received a couple of gifts that were inspired by Bible verses! The featured image of this post is actually the picture of the back of my t-shirt.  My husband and I my […]

Tuesday’s are the worst

I hadn’t noticed it before the stay at home order, but since it started, Tuesday’s seem to be the hardest day of the week.  Yesterday, was no different.  For some reason our emotions are always higher on Tuesday’s, but we look for the good. We always get out of the house on Tuesday’s for an […]

It is 2020 people!!!!

Last night my husband and I stood in the kitchen and talked as I was preparing dinner.  Then again while we were tidying up from dinner.  A conversation that was making my heart ache.  How could someone the on the outside seemed so much like me, think something so different?  Believe that this behavior was […]

Countdown to 40 #40in2020

While I was on the yoga mat today I started counting the days until I turn 40.  In quarantine, I have lost my focus on my health.  That being said, it hasn’t gotten too out of control.   I haven’t undone in 2 months the work that I did in the first 2 months and that […]

Endure & Let Go

I am a huge Survivor fan.  As I sit here and watch the latest episode, I am thinking about what we are currently going through here in Michigan.  One of the participants said that she needs 2 tattoos.  One on the left arm that says endure and one on the right that says let go.  […]

Loud Mouth Girl #40in2020

No one has ever accused me of not saying enough.  As long as I can remember I have been the chatty individual in every situation. Getting the codes on my report card for “disruptive in class”.  That was teacher speak for never stops talking. My talkative nature has served me well in many situations.  Being […]

Running no longer brings me JOY! #40in2020

I have had multiple conversations with friends in the last 24 hours about running.  It seems to be popping up everywhere. Once upon a time, nearly 11 years ago I took up running.  After my daughter was born and I needed to lose the baby weight.  My son and daughter are just 17 months apart, […]

Eat, Pray, Love #40in2020

I read Eat, Pray, Love like 11 years ago.  Then 4 days before my 40th birthday the movie came out into the theater.  I went to the movies by myself to see it during the most difficult time of my life.  A couple of days ago I finished the book Eat, Pray, Love: Made Me […]
