    Spending the early afternoon writing in my journal and reading a good book, which had me laughing out loud Everything is perfect when you're a liar by Kelly Oxford, is what I would classify as a good day. All this occured while sitting in a big comfy chair at Cool Beans with the sunshine warming me through the windows!
    To make my day more special, Zach met up with me for lunch and we enjoyed catching...

Let that be a lesson for the way my fear can sometimes...

     As my life continues to evolve, I have tried several times to look at things from a different perspective, one of gratitude.

    Grateful for week of March 11-17

    Lately I've been going through a lot, and running has not been a priority in my life. In fact not much of anything has been a priority and I'm looking to find myself.... again!
    But where does one begin? Trying to find a spark in things past that you used to love, like running? I do still love to run, but I do believe last  years 12 in 2012 took a toll on me and although I'm thrilled to say I...

    Recently Zach decided he wanted to move his bedroom to the basement. At first I reminded him that that is where the spiders usually are... but he didn't seem to care?Then I told him he's not moving to the basement unless there is drywall, a ceiling and a floor to make the room.  
    Let the construction begin...

    This year more than ever do I need goals and my word to help propel me into greater things...
    with a lot of changes in my life, some chosen and some forced upon me, I am learning that we cannot control what happens to us, but we can control how we react to it, and this year I am chosing to find confidence and thrive.
    So in deciding my one little word for 2013 I looked up the definitions of all...
