Gratitude Linkup - Week of 12/15/13

Participation in Laurel Regan's Gratitude linkup over at Alphabet Salad, is a great place for me to spend some time each week.

Participation gives me a place to be accountable to my gratitude. It's a way for me to publicly share my gratitude. With the gratitude linkup, I can take a moment, any moment in time, and really stop....more

Idol, Here I Come!

It all started with a tweet, directly from American Idol.  I'm fairly Twitter-savvy and know (most of the time) if something is suspicious or an account is not verified.  But this was the real deal, AMERICAN IDOL tweeting me, and subsequently following me.  The tweet instructed me to direct message them about an exclusive event in L.A.  Sounded easy enough.  So I did.   Hopes did not rise too high, I was being realistic....more

Reverb 2013 - Day 2

Gift giving and receivingFor me, this year, the two are actually one - Baby Boy. I was given the pleasure of becoming his parent as well as having aided in giving Baby as a gift to Hun.
