Circle Of Life

It was a typical Wednesday morning. The flurry of getting everyone’s needs met before they headed off to work or school went by without a hitch. The clutter and dishes left in the waste would have to wait because this Wednesday was about to become non-typical. The night before I had carefully prepared everything my…

Blissful Ignorance

As I watch the wide world of the internet I often see egos attempting to rule the space. Accounts labeled “Public Figure” multiply in staggering amounts on a daily basis. I love having people to look up to and people who motivate me, people who encourage me to strive to be better and to seek…

When Spiderman Trips

Getting creative with dinner used to be a passion of mine. I loved trying new recipes and creating my own. I loved thinking about it and put a lot of time each week into dinners, even creating blog posts about recipes on top of it all. It is amazing to me how much things can…

Let’s Get Real

  Christmas has overtaken my world with a rush of activity, smells and sights that I love and loathe alike. Candies, songs, memories and expectations all smash together into a big ball of joy and stress careening down the snowy hill of December and poised to crash awkwardly into the New Year. Somehow in the…

Pining For Fall

Ahhhh…summer. Sweat, dirty bare feet, wedding invitation after wedding invitation, the days that you spend trying to get to fall so that you can go hunting again. At least that is what it feels like to me. I know a lot of you relate to this as there are probably at least 250 different memes…

Poison Peanut Butter Cookies

Disclaimer-(If you are not interested in reading about my Christian perspective then you may want to skip this post.) Sometimes when God teaches me something, He uses a strange method to do so. Ok, most of the time He uses a strange method to do so. I guess that’s just His style. He rocks it….

Slaughter Or Nothing

I have discovered a trait within myself that is undesirable. That is nothing new. I often find faults within myself that are probably blatantly obvious to everyone on earth, for eons and eons, except me. Suddenly, the fog clears from between my offset and very uneven ears and I finally see what everyone else has…

Fall Off Cloud 9

So much has happened since I last put finger to keyboard. Nothing in this over computerized, technologically engorged culture ever waxes poetically anymore. But my fall has been the purest picture of perfect. I feel spoiled and I am spoiled. I don’t deserve to have had so many things go my way but I will…

The LifeCoaster-Hunting Fitness/Nutrition Journey

  Life is full of ups and downs and if you haven’t experienced that reality then I hope you are the one person on earth who gets a smooth ride. The unknown has a sneaky way of causing anxiety and stealing joy. Our responses to these changes have a lot to do with how much…

Share It

The sun was shining boldly into my eyes. It didn’t seem to care that I was driving on a shadowy, curvy road with three little kids and two dogs in the car. It was on one of those shadowed curves that I saw it. I almost didn’t see it because of that frustrating phenomenon that…
