#sheri – (Part 2)

Yesterday I processed through some thoughts on the death of my sweet friend, Sheri. To get caught up: feel free to click here. Sheri died on a Tuesday (which our #tribe all thought was appropriate because that has always been “our day” to meet/gather). It was crazy to think about what she was experiencing that morning –… Continue reading #sheri – (Part 2)

#Sheri (part 1)

If you are a close friend (and/or see me on social media), you have heard about my friend – Sheri. Sheri has been part of my #tribe and a close personal friend for many years.  We have been in each other’s lives for almost two decades, but have truly “done life together” on a deep and intimate… Continue reading #Sheri (part 1)

#homeAlone – July 2019

It’s been a crazy couple of months in our home (I know – “When is it not?” .  So maybe I should say “crazier”?). Anyway – Since March, Tom and I have moved and tried to settle into a new home…and our daughter and grandson have come with us.  While that’s not a surprise to… Continue reading #homeAlone – July 2019

#ftf – #sisters

#ftf – “Favorite Things Friday” (just some of my most favorite things – shared on a day I can actually write/document them!) I’ve often shared that I grew up always wanting a sister. I craved the closeness that I often saw between friends and their sisters – the sharing of clothes (yes, I now know… Continue reading #ftf – #sisters

#WelcomeToOurNewHome – April 27, 2019

It’s a Saturday morning and I’m home ALONE for a few hours. My sweet man is off serving a family in need of some yard/house maintenance with a group of people from our church and I was laying in bed two hours after he left.  While many people would struggle with feeling “guilt” – quite… Continue reading #WelcomeToOurNewHome – April 27, 2019

#WhenAGirlFINALLYwantsABiscuit – January 29, 2019

While I haven’t posted on this blog in months (and have a LOT to document – like a new #grandgirl), I want to make sure I record this day – cause it’s been a long time coming! I have a #tribe – a group of incredible women that I do life with.  We call ourselves… Continue reading #WhenAGirlFINALLYwantsABiscuit – January 29, 2019

#PutMeInCoach – April 21, 2018

It was reported all week that we would have BIG RAIN this morning – and all day long. So- last night we turned off our alarms and planned to sleep in (I was sooooooo excited!). I woke up at 7:49am to see a text from our daughter (these days she’s better known as “Luke Thomas’ mommy”)… Continue reading #PutMeInCoach – April 21, 2018

#pieForBreakfast – with “TheWomen”

I have these friends…I call them “The Women”. At some point, years ago, we talked about calling ourselves that because we all watched our mothers (or women before us) have women in their lives that were known for hosting showers, bringing meals, celebrating babies/grandbabies, attending weddings and parties, etc.  Basically, they were the dependable ones in… Continue reading #pieForBreakfast – with “TheWomen”

A Different Christmas…and January 7th. #notAFanOfTheFlu

Well, this “January 7th” went a totally different direction than we had planned…and I’m honestly trying to be “ok” with it (but I’m not there yet). For weeks, we have been looking forward to our family being all together this weekend to FINALLY “Celebrate Christmas”. I did all the shopping on line (after the 25th)… Continue reading A Different Christmas…and January 7th. #notAFanOfTheFlu
