I love the physicality of just being outside. I believe I’ve mentioned this in previous posts, but winter is aContinue reading “Quarantine Chronicles: Snowboarding”

Twenty One

New Year, New Me. I’m going to keep this entry short for I do not have enough words to express. I have to be honest with you and myself. One of my goals this year is to be intentional about the fruit of the spirit in my life i.e. love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness,Continue reading “Twenty One”

Christmas in Frankenmuth

My goodness! If you’re reading this you’ve survived 2020 thus far! Boy has it been a whirlwind of a year. So many of our cheers were overshadowed by head tilts, facepalms, heartbreaking moments. But before I go off on a tangent, this post is not the annual end of year reflection piece. It’s about theContinue reading “Christmas in Frankenmuth”

Birthday Trip to Catalina Island: Part 2

I’m already California dreamin’ as the fall weather here in Michigan begins to settle. As pathetic as this sounds, the only things keeping me warm at the moment are my fuzzy socks, blanket and the happy memories of Catalina.

THIRTY. YEARS. OLD. Wow!! This is a huge milestone especially for women. I expected life to be quite different at thirty from my current reality.

Quarantine Chronicles: Sunset at Grand Haven

I need to go back to Grand Haven! I need to go back when it’s not crowded with 4th of July vacationers. I need to go back when it’s not during a pandemic.

Quarantine Chronicles: 4th of July 2020

Below is from my observations and opinions based on my social media circle of influence. Imagine me thinking out loud: This past weekend the “United” States of America celebrated it’s independence day.
