The Echo of Loss

Is it harder to grieve someone you loved or someone you wanted to?  Last weekend I learned that my father passed away. There’s usually a certain standard reaction of grief one feels immediately after losing a parent, at least that’s how I imagine it. People keep telling me how sorry they […]

Why Resolutions Fail

Another year has come and gone. Hello 2019, it’s lovely to meet you! There is something about that bright, fresh canvas of the New Year that brings a certain magic into the air. It’s a time for looking back at our achievements, our mistakes, our would have/could haves. A time […]


Toxicity – the quality of being toxic or poisonous. What do you think of when you hear the word “toxic”? Most of us imagine material things like waste, products we shouldn’t have in our home, chemicals, pollution, etc. We wouldn’t go into a store and buy something that is labeled TOXIC. […]

Life Goals for the Living

Last weekend I flew to California to meet my big sister for Ohana Fest in Dana Point, CA. It was well worth the miles! Some bands I had never heard of and some I had treasured for years, & of course Eddie Vedder (insert heart with arrow in guitar here). On […]

The Fetus of Procrastination

Drumroll please!!……. After 30 days of logging and intermediate posts, I have completed the last part of the 30 day Gratitude project.   I have thoroughly enjoyed making these little notes each day, it causes you to reflect intently on your life and literally count your blessings.  For me, it […]

Gratitude project continues…

Day 11 – What holiday are you grateful for?  Halloween! It’s the perfect excuse for big wigs, spandex and priceless photo opportunities! Not to mention…the giant bowl of candy ❤️ Day 12 – What texture are you grateful for?  What a strange question…this is one I definitely had to think […]

Catching Up

While I have been following and completing the 30 day gratitude project, I have sucked at posting about it. I’m 5 days behind…. so brace yourself! Day 5- What sound are you grateful for today?            Silence.            After a long day […]
