A recent flight back to Wisconsin reminded me of a story a friend once told me about flying to Las Vegas with a woman who was flying for the first time. The story goes . . . as this was her first time flying, she paid special attention to the safety demonstration. She pulled the… Read More Life’s Flight – A Life Lesson
I don’t know about you, but the holidays have me eating like every meal might be my last. Not only have I eaten too much, I’m making food choices like the teenage boys in my house. Yesterday alone I not only ate a donut for a snack, I also had a handful of pumpkin pie… Read More On Your Mark, Get Set, RESET! Feel better in just 2 weeks
Holy smokes! It’s been quite a whirlwind of events the last couple of months and that’s meant no time spent writing for this mama.

I’m pretty sure he said them just… Read More Execution Trumps Knowledge
It’s confession time. I haven’t printed pictures – besides the 10 necessary for my children’s student of the week posters which were printed at 7am the morning they were needed – or completed a photo book in 3.5 years. I’m really much further behind than that, though, because that year I printed hundreds of photos,… Read More Unfinished Business
Happy New Year! Each year as I hang up the new calendar, I always do so with a mix of emotions. I’m a bit nostalgic for the years gone by, sad that the holidays have past, grateful for the time spent with family and friends, and excited for what the new year will bring. This… Read More Commit2Twenty
