2017 New Year’s Resolution…And Why I Won’t Be Making One

"If not, you are walking through life with your fists balled up expecting people to place something in your hands. Impossible." I hate New Year's resolutions. First of all, I have a horrible memory. By the end of the year, I would never remember what I resolved to do. So I just don't make them. … Continue reading 2017 New Year’s Resolution…And Why I Won’t Be Making One

Christmas in Savannah

This year, I decided that the holidays would be spent very differently than what I am traditionally used to.  For the Thanksgiving holiday, I spent time relaxing poolside in Orlando with family.  I was not interested in slaving in the kitchen and then begging my kiddos to help clean up afterward.  So, it worked out … Continue reading Christmas in Savannah

New Year’s resolutions and other foolery

Like my fellow blogger, Cierra, the first thing I did when asked what I’m looking forward to in 2017 is took a long and deep breath.  There is a huge presumption behind the question that you’re actually at a place of looking forward to anything. I’ve never been one for New Year’s resolutions, which we … Continue reading New Year’s resolutions and other foolery

Expecting Amazing Things in 2017

I am writing this blog post during a perfect time of year for me.  My kiddos are away with their dad for a week which means the house is quiet.  Meditation music is playing.  Candles are lit. My yoga mat is in the middle of the floor. Pure bliss!! Well, today is the first day … Continue reading Expecting Amazing Things in 2017

2017 Will Find Me Taking a New Approach to an Old Dream!

With the new year right around the corner, everyone is reflecting on what they want to do differently. So many are caught up in changing the way they look and living a healthier life.

In 2017, I’m looking forward to embracing CHANGE!

Living in 2016 taught me how to release the right amount energy to achieve goals. After midnight on December 31, 2015, I knew the year would be something to remember. Why? Because I was turning 50 in six months. My plans were to live life to the fullest and embrace whatever challenges in my path. … Continue reading In 2017, I’m looking forward to embracing CHANGE!

Am I Looking Forward to 2017?

2017 will mark the  30th year of life for me. Needless to say, I am absolutely dreading it. I'm not having a big party (as I have always envisioned) because my money is STILL funny  and if I can't do it epically (new word I made up) then I don't want to do it at … Continue reading Am I Looking Forward to 2017?

Friendship Isn’t Easy

"The last thing you need is judgment when you are really trying to figure something out. We all need someone to talk to, to bounce ideas off of and get perspective." Twenty years late, I found Sex And The City and fell in love. I really don't know what I was doing when it was … Continue reading Friendship Isn’t Easy

The Reason For The Season

"That's not what the holiday season is about for me.  I would much rather my kids learn that they should be blessed to be a blessing to others." The winter holidays can be a trying time for some. Besides the fact that the days are shorter, the weather a little colder, from Thanksgiving through the … Continue reading The Reason For The Season

Don’t let winter blues ruin your happy hands and feet!

Living in Chicago, winter is the worst on our hands and feet. Don’t let the season take away from time caring for your precious nails.  Often, we slam our hands and feet in thick gloves and boots and forget to take extra care to stay smooth and soft throughout the brutal season in Chicagoland. I’ve … Continue reading Don’t let winter blues ruin your happy hands and feet!
