Earlier in the month, I had to write a six word memoir. I came up with a chart of sorts where “dedication” pointed to 5 words: my faith, learning, clan, optimism and responsibility. Now today, with my last post for the November Blog Challenge, I am tasked to write down the title of what would be my memoir and explain why. I’ve decided on “Snippets of My Dedication.” The title of my blog, “My Life in Snippets” has always been… Read more »


I have far too many fond memories of chats and interactions with teachers as a high schooler to be able to choose just one. You have to understand that during the course of high school (secretly still today), I was a bit of a nerd. Okay, quite a big nerd. And for some reason, I felt closer to many of my teachers than any of my peers.One of my high school teachers was challenging and put my writing and reading to… Read more »


My prompt for today is to write down 20 things I’m thankful for. Of course, this post comes just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday coming up in a few days! Family Max Friends Health Resources: Food, Water, a Roof over my head I’m thankful for my faith – as it is truly what keeps me going. Sleep (as it seems to disappear during the weeks leading into finals and such) Busy-ness: Honestly, I’m thankful for being as busy as… Read more »


 This is probably one of the coolest prompts for the November Blog Challenge. A reverse bucket list, if you don’t know, is just a compilation of awesome things you’ve done – things you’ve already crossed off your bucket list. It really gives me satisfaction to look at the list below – so much so that I encourage you to make a list of all that you’ve accomplished. If you’re like me (a student), it’s finals time and it can be… Read more »


Below are my top ten travel destinations. Some I’ve been to and others are on my to-do list. Lake Michigan: From Holland to Saugatuck to Manistee – I love the cities along Lake Michigan. More importantly, I love the lake in general – so many fond memories there growing up! Rancho Palos Verdes, CA: I had the privilege of staying at the Terranea Resort on the coast of California a few years ago. I doubt I could ever forget the… Read more »

Wordcloud about Uniqueness

One of my eyes is smaller than the other. Why? I have no idea. But life goes on 🙂 I became an Aunt in Fifth grade when my nephew, Kodi, came along. Working to be a role model to him (at such a young age) taught me a great deal. I dislike roller coasters. Growing up I never enjoyed going to Cedar Point and other such locations. Although, if there’s a water park around – get me a tube and… Read more »

Beach Boys Endless Summer Album Cover

What: Beach Boys Concert Where: Lenawee County Fairgrounds When: I believe it was in 2006. Who: Mom, Dad and I Why: For fun! As much of a fan of music as I am – concerts were never really my thing. In fact, the first concert I went to was at our local county fair with the Beach Boys. It was neat! My favorite part was being able to sing along and dance to the songs which I had grown up on.

As it is turning into Midnight faster than I’d like, this will potentially be the shortest post of my blogging career (I spy a challenge?). I love kids – so it makes logical sense that my first job was a babysitter. Although this job was hardly a consistent way to earn money. It was more likely that I’d babysit little ones for free – because I simply enjoyed it so much. Or better yet, because they were family. So why… Read more »

Today my prompt for the November Blog Challenge is to write about the “happiest moment in my life.” Now my goal is not to evade the question…but I have been blessed enough to have a very happy life (overall). Of course, there have been times when things were not going my way, or when bad things have happened – but all in all… I’m lucky and quite thankful. To think that I could simply pick one event is (for lack… Read more »

Please note…I’m deviating from the November Blog Challenge prompt today to write about the wonderful upcoming holiday season we have in store! Hope y’all don’t mind. 🙂 If you haven’t noticed, Christmas (and the rest of the Holiday season) is quickly approaching. First, there’s Thanksgiving and then…well you know, December 25 comes along quicker than I can whistle Jingle Bells. The Holiday season, in general, is one of my favorite times of the year – for many reasons, which of… Read more »
