The Remarkable Effect of Having Dreams

With the Powerball jackpot at a record high level and me not being able to sleep, I started daydreaming about what I would do with the winnings. First I’d pay off everything. Practical and boring. Then I’d donate a sizable portion. Still pretty boring....

2016 Isn’t My Year. Or Yours.

I can tell you right now that 2016 isn’t my year. Hopefully it’s not yours either. Don’t worry, I haven’t thrown in the towel on this year. Nor do I think that you have. I’m just choosing to look at things differently. For the last several years I would always say “this is gonna be […]

Inspired to Action. Inspired to Create.

Hello and welcome to my last blog post of 2015. I’m about 35 hours aways from completing my New Year’s resolution! I hope I don’t blow it now. If you’re not aware, my resolution was to not be the designated driver anymore. I hope none of my drunk friends need a ride home tonight. Once […]

I’ll Have a Brew Christmas Without You. Or With You. It’s Kinda Up to You.

I saw the event titled Brew Christmas (my husband refers to it as Beer Christmas – I’m not sure if this is on purpose or just subliminal) on my church’s website and I was immediately interested. Drinking beer (or the beverage of your choice) at a local coffee shop/wine bar and singing Christmas carols. Um, […]
