Monday Morning

The unwelcome and annoying sound of the alarm clock next to Sara’s bed prodded her out of a deep sleep, instantly putting her in a bad mood. Rolling over to shut it off, Sara is convinced it must be a mistake. She could have sworn she had turned off Friday’s alarm just yesterday.  But her…

The Sunday Post: Feeling Lazy?

I feel like I’ve been slacking here lately. I haven’t been writing much but it’s not because I don’t have anything to say. Honestly, I’ve just been lazy. I’ve been a little lazy about walking and even doing yoga regularly, too. I haven’t just been sitting on my couch doing nothing though. I’ve been cooking…

Music Fridays: Indigo

I’m wrapping up Hispanic Heritage month-inspired music with this new song from Camilo and Evaluna Montaner. When I heard it this morning on my new music mix from Apple Music it got my attention. I like the vibe it gives me: carefree, happy, and in love. Enjoy and have a great weekend!

Music Fridays: Life in the Tropics

Happy Friday! It’s been a gray, rainy week in my little corner of the world. Though the temperatures are still warm, it feels like fall is just around the corner. Although I don’t mind fall weather, I’m a summer person. I love the warm temperatures. For today’s selection, I’m taking you to the tropics. Specifically,…

Discovery

Last year someone broke my heart. I fell to my knees and cried bitter, lonely tears. I’d asked so many questions, struggling to understand. Suddenly it all made sense I filled pages and notebooks With feelings, frustrations, desires. Then I put my pen down and I looked around with renewed appreciation, for all was good….

The Sunday Post: Game Night

Today is my son’s 23rd birthday. It’s incredible how quickly time flies and just gets away from you when you’re not paying attention. It still feels like I was pacing around the office, taking my shoes off when I thought I could get away with it, wondering what I could do to induce labor and…

Music Fridays: Cinco Centavitos

It’s the first day of a new month and I’m feeling a little melancholy. It’s probably because so much happened last October. I stumbled upon some old messages and letters yesterday that made me a little blue. I’m probably also anticipating a little too much how I will feel when the anniversary of my dad’s…

The Sunday Post: Back to Work

And just like that, vacation is almost over. Sigh. I’ve spent the past two weeks basking in sunshine and laziness. I’ve had a few days that felt pretty ordinary, spent doing chores such as laundry, grocery shopping, and cleaning the bathroom. But there were also days spent walking in the park, drinking coffee from a…

Music Friday: Yo Soy Latino

It’s Hispanic Heritage Month! Here’s a new song I just discovered this week featuring some fantastic dancing and Latin rhythms. Have a great weekend!

Have you Colored Lately?

This was this week’s bloom and I’m happy to report that the answer to this question is “yes!” I found these coloring bookmarks on my last Target run and I have already colored one and gifted it to S. I’m working on this one for myself now. Wonder if there’s a fall edition? Might have…
