I’ve just returned from a grand adventure! My daughter and I launched out on a three-day road trip from Florida to Missouri to move her to a new city. I’d never driven further than the northern borders of my own state prior to this trip, but my girl had a […]

Midlife Changes | How I Am Trying To Keep Up

If there’s one thing we can all be assured of, it’s change. I find this to be glaringly true in my current midlife season. In fact, I could almost be convinced that little gnomes of change worked tirelessly to stack tons of “changing stuff” at the door to age 53…just […]

Dance In My Kitchen | Shake Out Of It

I woke up the other morning with a good case of ditzy on the brain. I had actually set an alarm for an early morning Zoom call…well, I guess 9am is early if you have no other place to be. However, regardless of the set alarm and a calendar reminder, […]

Where’s My Norman Rockwell? | When Life Is Less Than Ideal

I must admit, my present-day picture seems less than ideal, and, right now, my real life does not resemble a Norman Rockwell painting.
