    Friends! I have to tell you that I did two very brave things this week. Both totally out of my comfort zone. Part One: The Doctor Visit I hate going to the doctor. Nothing is scarier than the dingy and outdated (tan) decor. The waiting, the awkward conversation, the blood…

    Well happy Sunday! Here we are with another Sunday (Monday) – edging closer to spring. Not the calendar spring (today – technically) but real spring. When the birds come back with their morning song, tiny flowers bursting through the earth, and the sun shining through fluffy white cotton clouds. I…

    Another lazy Sunday, my friends. I have a lot of things I’d like to do but I’m trying not to punish myself for resting. Hopefully that makes sense. The work week is long and I’m caught in routine. Sometimes you just need to take a step back and take a…

    Well, hello! January is almost over. This was the first January that moved fast – even though it still get like it dragged on. I still have New Year brain – where you feel dazed, confused, and shock that time still forges ahead. Helping my focus or distracting me further…
