Get Carded…

Well friends, it’s been a while again. There are so many things that are happening with me – both good and, well, mediocre – that I need to update you on… but first I have to share a little about a project that I’m starting next Monday. I’ve actually been prepping it for a few weeks now, but the time has come to share a little more about what it all is ....more

Regret…

I’ve been living with regrets for a long time. All the things I wish I had done differently, they kind of rule my thoughts at times. I play the game of “I wish…” far too often, but haven’t changed much about the regrets overall ....more

Breakaway…

Today is the beginning of my taking a risk with the START experiment that Jon Acuff coordinated. It’s all about taking a chance and risking something… and achieving your dream. And this song/video from Kelly Clarkson says it so much better than what I could at the moment ....more

STARTing something new…

A few weeks ago, I saw a call that Jon Acuff was putting out to those that follow his blog, twitter, instagram (and who knows what else). For about 5 hours, I ignored the whole “you need to do this” feeling that I was experiencing. With some things, that’s what I do ....more

Declaring Independence…

Two hundred thirty seven years ago, my country – the United States of America – declared its independence from Britain. Declared that it no longer wanted taxation without representation. Declared equality ....more

Not a voice of the year…

A few months ago a conversation happened on twitter. Actually multiple conversations about this same topic. And I wish I hadn’t ever said anything to begin with there ....more

Siesta Scripture Memory…

A few years ago, I started becoming a periodic (really only when I remembered) follower of Beth Moore’s “Living Proof Ministries” blog. Since that time, I’ve participated in a couple of summer Bible studies (like this one I’m doing right now with Cris, Kristi and Heather via Google+ hangouts) as well as memorizing scripture with the group. I never really thought about the scripture memory being so much a part of my life… but I’m finding more and more that I am repeating while I am driving, when I’m frustrated about something or when I’m trying to fall asleep at night ....more

572 miles…

This weekend was full of adventure and life. So much so that I want to turn around and do it all again this coming weekend. I don’t think that’s possible, so I guess I’ll just have to live with re-living it here ....more

It’s been a while…

For some reason I seem to be taking a “blogging hiatus” lately. I don’t mean to… it just seemed to happen. I want to write more, but each time I sit down to be productive, I’m just not. Actually, I blame Hulu. Yes, the television. I know I have the full power to turn it off… but it’s just so easy to catch up on the multiple seasons of Grey’s Anatomy that I’ve missed over the years. {And yes, ...more

Sponsored Giveaway! $50 to Minted.com…

Over the past few years, I’ve really made it no secret that I’m out there looking for my “Prince Charming”. I’ve looked for him in some strange places… written letters to him… and well, sometimes I imagine that I’m getting married to him ....more
