Music Fridays: Pink Martini

It’s Friday! I was torn as to what song to share with you today. I listened to Ed Sheeran’s new album this morning and I was tempted to share that, maybe by way of the new Tiny Desk episode featuring that album, because so many of the songs touched me in one way or another,…

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…

Music Fridays: Simple Things

It’s been another one of those weeks for me. I’ve been thinking a little too much, maybe even feeling a little too much, if that’s possible. Every time I look at the calendar I remember something sad, like the fact that my dad passed away last October. This time last year he was still alive,…

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…
