Where did this week go? I haven't been that busy this week (at least I don't think) but it feels like this week just flew by.

Happy Tuesday! If you're in the southern USA, I hope you're ready for the nasty cold front coming in and that you're going to stay cozy! As for the rest of us, that's all debatable.

Sunday is usually a day of rest and peace for me. I prepare for the week ahead and ensure all my ducks are in a row. Today is no different, but the crisp air this morning reminds me that it's fall and it's bringing me a lot of solace. Right now, the planets are in … Continue reading Daily Gratitude: 11/3/2019

It's officially NOVEMBER! I hope that you got to do some trick-or-treating or pass out candy, or some other Halloween fun. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case for me, but I celebrated by eating a few pieces myself. You probably noticed the site makeover (again). I have a hard time deciding on the aesthetics of the … Continue reading Daily Gratitude 11/1/2019
