why being “a lifestyle expert” is stupid

I’m having a moment. It’s one of those moments for me where it’s me, this laptop, a glass of wine and thoughts. So many thoughts. On this post I’ll be a real blogger – the O.G. kind (that’s original gangsta’ for those of you who don’t know.) The type of blogger who writes about their thoughts, or life happenings rather…

a grateful heart

Have you ever had once of those days or moments where you just feel life is on track and all is right in the world? This past weekend was one of those for my husband and me.

just 10 questions!

Does anyone else watch Inside the Actor’s Studio? I’ve been a fan for years and years.

I admit my blog posts have been a bit mundane lately. I’m currently lacking inspiration and that “deadline” feeling of making sure I have fresh content up for everyone to read. Perhaps…

giant pool float

Alright, friends. The weather this year is straight up kooky. It was in the 70s in February in Atlanta (not normal), two weeks ago nearly 90 degrees and then last weekend is was 70. I surrender, Mother Nature, I surrender. I do not surrender my giant pool float, however, no matter what the weather. But I really am prepping for…

depression & gratitude

Memories aren’t always exactly the truth. They are somewhere in between reality and perception. My perception of my upbringing is that I was raised to be a stay at home mom. I don’t recall ever being able to consider any other choice. The goal, I believe I was taught, was to marry, have children and stay home with them. That…
