Sweet Sixteen

Last week was my daughter’s 16th birthday...It’s her sweet sixteen and its just the beginning of more independence, more letting go, more compromise, and more trust...and still embracing it all... I struggled all week, because she is growing up. I must have asked her a million times what she wanted to do for her birthday.  All she wanted to do was go out to dinner with her friends after practice.  At first I was crushed… ...

Set Your Goals Into Motion For 2021

Set your goals in to motion for 2021....We are SO close to a new year when we can finally put 2020 in our rear view!

We must still be INTENTIONAL with how we want 2021 ...

It is a wonderfully written call to bless everything and everyone in our world. Even those people and events ...

What’s Your Fear?

What's your fear? In the recent weeks, I have been shifting back and forth between several novels for entertainment purposes. To my surprise, none of these stories have managed to gain my full attention. It wasn’t until I was assigned the novel “Dracula” by Bram Stoker for my English class, that I was truly glued to the pages I was reading. For a significant portion of my life, I have always been interested in the ...

Embrace It

Embrace it... It is Sunday late afternoon and I am listening to not the best cover of a Third Eye Blind song, my one diet soda I allow myself long gone. I have been forty nine almost a full month.

Am I Committed To Doing It My Way?

Am I committed to only doing it "my way"?.....Years ago in another life I was a general manager of a restaurant in southern Maine. I often joke that that’s how I learned to cook. When one of the chefs didn’t come to work I stepped in and took his place for the night. I described that experience as teaching me to be a line cook but not a chef. I also say what it taught ...

My Trip To Sephora

My trip to Sephora... Hi Friends! Selena here. How's everyone doing?  While shopping I had noticed that my very same items I was going for were in gift sets and they were full sized products!  I left the store a very happy Selena because I knew I got a good deal. I made two separate purchases and used my Sephora points to get $10 off each transaction. If you didn't know you could do this ...

Just A Bump In The Road

Just a bump in the road... Sunday night seems to come at me much faster than it did a few months ago. I’m trying to decide how I feel about that. Do I miss the days of not knowing what day it is or do I like being very aware with each passing hour my weekend is almost over? I think a bit of both. Since August I have been working in an actual office ...
