There are some days that drive home just how lucky I really am. How good my life really is. Today is one of those days. Today is not really anything special. Yes, it’s Halloween. But Halloween is really just another day around here. Let me explain why it is one of those days… When I … More Luck Has Nothing To Do With It…
So, I am struggling a little bit today. I am struggling with my sense of self-worth and my worth to other people. My husband told me that one of the major things that drew him to his former affair partner, was her drive, her motivation. Me, on the other hand, dropped out of college, became … More What are you worth???
Gone are the days that I can get away with going without makeup on my face. I’m over 40 and just now starting to show small wrinkles around my eyes. I’d say that it’s been a pretty good run! I am actually starting to enjoy experimenting a little more with my makeup and my skincare … More Let’s Makeup!!
It’s that time of year. The leaves are turning and falling, and so are the temperatures. I love this time of year. I always have. Yesterday, we got our first bit of snow for the year, with more showing up this morning. I crave hot chocolate, a warm blanket, chili, and all the pumpkin foods…lol. … More I Love Fall

Your feelings, what you believe, who you are, where you are going, what you want, what you don’t want, what you can’t live without, who you want in your life, who you talk to, … More Today
I had a different blog post up here. I took it down because how I portrayed myself is not who I want to be. I wrote a long essay about the other woman, their relationship, and it was a rather scathing commentary. I don’t want to be that vengeful, unforgiving person. That being said, I … More The Other Woman 2.0
It is a cold, rainy, dreary Saturday morning where I live. I love it. It’s time to just relax with a cup of hot tea, a blanket, and some words. Life this week has been crazy, strange, wonderful, shocking, worrisome, chaotic, and overall amazing. We have had some unexpected answer to prayer, given reason to … More Thankful
