If you haven’t noticed, I’m not much into the world of fashion – but I’d like to think that i have some sense of style. 😉 Point is, I’m certainly not known for OOTD posts (Outfit of the day) or posts on what I’m wearing for Fall. So, this post will be fun! Today, I’ll be sharing some of my signature pieces and how they work together to create my sense of style. Boots  Brown Boot Heels Rain Boots Classic… Read more »

This question sits very close to home and honestly, I have to sit myself on the fence. Yes, Technology Technology is powerful. Powerfully awesome! It’s literally everywhere. Smartphones, Computers, calculators, Printers, video games, televisions, WiFi routers, Stereo Systems, Cars, need I continue?! Technology brings to us social media which creates ease of communication in long distances with family and friends. Technology brings to us advanced medicine that extends the lives for patients with pain or illness. Medically, it also provides… Read more »

Yes, that’s right. The last thing I crossed off my bucket list was tandem skydiving. Here’s what happened… Before, Before… It all started with my birthday. Actually, it started about five weeks prior to my birthday. I was on a run with my other half and we started talking about making plans for my birthday. He asked me what I wanted – and I said, well instead of something, I instead wanted an experience of some sort. In my head,… Read more »

Screen shot of 7 day New England Trip Adventure

Today’s blog prompt is to plan a seven day vacation where I can do anything I want – and have unlimited money to go with it 😀 Sounds fun, right? The other piece of this challenge is that it has to be reasonable (i.e. I should account for travel time and such!). Basically, at the end of it, I should be able to say hey, if I raise X amount of money I could actually go on this seven day… Read more »

Today, I’m sharing my favorite piece of nature. This topic poses quite a puzzle for my mind. I love the color of the leaves as they turn in the early Autumn months. I adore thunderstorms, warm rain and the wind blowing chimes and the branches of trees. I grew up with nature and I feel incredibly close to it. However, my answer is… Stars. I could literally stand up and look at the stars for an entire night. I grew… Read more »

Today I will plan a dinner for ten – dead or alive. Explain why the ten are invited and share what dinner will be served! Invite List 1. Myself, of course. This one, I believe to be self explanatory! 😉 2. Alan Alda – Alan is a writer, director and loved actor. He is currently living. I adore him most for his starring role in the TV Series, M*A*S*H (a series about a Mobile Army Surgical hospital during the Korean… Read more »

Humor! What a joke! But really, I enjoy laughing. Anyone from grade school through high school could tell you times of me literally rolling on the floor in laughter. Picture the old man laughing in Mary Poppins. I grew out of that…and hardly find myself falling on the floor in laughter anymore. Although I do laugh pretty hard at times – to the point of happy tears streaming down my face (such a good feeling). Humor has also turned into… Read more »

I started in a class of, I believe, 18 kids at St. Joseph Academy in Adrian, Michigan. It was here that I met, Olivia. A dear friend who I still keep in touch with. We were inseparable for several years. It was here that I also recited The Children’s Hour by memory, was an active member of the Siena Heights University choir and where I learned to love going to the library and artwork. In fourth grade, I moved onto… Read more »

Family Birthday Celebration 5

Birthdays have never been crazy important in my opinion. Sure maybe a nice dinner and a dessert of sorts – a family get together…but never anything crazy. Today, I’m going to go ahead and share some of my favorite birthday memories. 1. One year…no idea which one, as I was so young. We traveled to my Aunts house for my birthday. She always seemed to be able to bake the most delicious bread. For this special occasion, she baked my… Read more »

The Book of Awesome Cover Courtesy of Google Images

As a kid, I would receive one of the Scholastic Reader Order forms from my Elementary teachers and I’d go through and circle everything I wanted to read…it was almost always the entire form… silly me. And one of my first experiences with a library was taking a book out…and when my Grandma asked for me to return it…I just put it back on the shelf. It was all good and well till a few weeks later the library called… Read more »

The Definition… Before I dive into what I’m grateful for, I want to start with the definition of gratitude. Gratitude is “a feeling of appreciation or thanks.” – Merriam Webster Dictionary A feeling of appreciation or thanks to a neighbor, a friend, family member or even to a stranger. It’s that feeling of calmness and reminder that you’re (I’m) okay because…well you at least have something to be grateful for.   What I’m Grateful For… I could likely go on… Read more »

German Pancakes

Growing up, I was a huge fan of pancakes (cue, copious amounts of Mrs. Buttersworth’s syrup). Although this is a bit of a comfort food today, my taste-buds have expanded. In today’s world, I find myself shying away from syrup and preferring Preserves or Fruit or maybe even just a little brown sugar…yumm! So, I give you German Pancakes. This recipe originally stemmed from my Sister who found it somewhere online. The cool thing about German Pancakes is you can… Read more »
