Wide Awake



This song resonates with every fiber of my being at the moment:


Sometimes things in life happen to us that we would never expect. They come out of left field like a dump truck, run you over, and don’t hit the brakes to see if you survived or are even okay for that matter. This is my life right now. I am okay, or I will be. No need to send me a thousand emails or private messages, please. There are just some things people have to deal with alone. This is one of those things and definitely one of those times. 

I don’t have the answers for what happened. I’m not sure I ever will. My heart aches and my soul is on fire.  However, I refuse to let this define me. I refuse to succumb to the sadness.

The anger.
The pain.

I choose to be happy because we all have to make choices. 

I choose to not let this or anything else stand in my way. 

Am I being cryptic? Yes, because what happened to me is just that, it happened to me. This is my fight. 

I plan to win.

Birthday Bliss

I turned thirty seven this past weekend (cringe), but I had a blast doing it!

My husband and daughter made me cards (I prefer these versus bought cards). I love that they take the time to make a card each year, it makes me feel extra special. Although, this year kiddo's car was a "flat card", her words. She didn't want to fold the artwork. I totally get you, mini me.

Saturday I had a kid free day with a friend and we spent hours laughing and thrift shopping. I found some great treasures and even a pair of bright flowery running shorts. I will take a picture of said shorts as they embarrassed my friend and she vowed NOT to be seen running with me at our next race if I wore them. I took that as a compliment and a challenge. =P Later that night hubby and kiddo took me to dinner at my favorite Thai restaurant (they aren't open on Sundays).

Sunday I finally checked out one of those bar/painting shops. Five girlfriends and I drank, laughed, painted and had a great tim…

#Writemotivation Week 1 Update

It is that time again! I missed March =(, but I am back with a vengeance for May! Here are my goals for this month:


Spring Break 2017

Kiddo is only in preschool, but their preschool still had spring break. The teachers needed I break and I can totally respect that. Here are some pictures of our week:

Day One:
Made a homemade chalkboard for outside. I decided on a smaller piece of wood that I could move in and out of the garage and not have to worry about leaving it out all year and deal with weather damage. So far it has been  a huge success but a major pain in the butt to clean. I little cleaning research and I will be golden.

Day 2:
Working in the garden. Kiddo and I love working in the garden and she even planted her own daisies that she is now responsible for. She loves going out to check on them every day (we planted seeds so she is eagerly waiting for them to sprout) and when it is watering day it's sheer bliss for her!


Day 3:
Dance Class (no photos because they are pretty strict about that at her dance studio) and after lunch some good playtime at the park!

Day 4:
We must have partied too hard the first …
