The Sunday Post: Color my World

It was a nearly perfect fall day. We went out for a drive and picnic lunch on the Blue Ridge Parkway. The weather was gorgeous, the company was fun, and it wasn’t as crowded on the overlooks and parkway as we thought it would be. The only thing that stopped it from being perfect was…

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…

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…

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 know you’re scared —to take chances, to look foolish, to be yourself outside the safety of your room. It’s okay. Most everyone is. But I know you want to do all those things. You called that boy you like but have no idea what to do next. It’s much easier to talk, to take…

The Sunday Post: Right on Target

This morning my daughter and I had brunch together and talked about wedding plans, friendships, relationships, you know… mother-daughter stuff. What better way to follow that up than with … a Target run! I needed a couple things, she needed a couple things… As we were standing in the bathroom accessories aisle I remembered standing…

The Sunday Post: Reset

Every Sunday I expect at least two or three emails in my inbox that are not promotional emails with the latest sale or discount code for one of the sites I’ve allowed to have my email address. The first is the weekly “love letter” from the Yoga with Adriene site and it includes words of…

The Sunday Post: Obligations

I’m sitting on my couch with an afghan on my lap and a watered-down Paloma in front of me on the coffee table, and the cursor on the screen in front of me is yelling, each blink accusing me of negligence. (Yes, I realize it’s August and there’s no need for the blanket on my…
