7:45 on a recent Sunday morning, I found myself shuffling through Home Depot eating a piece of dry toast and calling it breakfast. I heard my boots heavily trying to make their way down an aisle to locate (hopefully) an item on my list that needed to be available the next day for a contractor… [Read More]
A while back I had fully intended to write Part II of my blog about moving through transitions. Well, I’m in transition, so it didn’t happen as quickly as I liked. I had to let that item on my list go into the “not now” file. I have been thinking about what I would write,… [Read More]
The Tug and A Tear (Part 1)
And there it was. Right beneath the surface, the tug and a tear. After a full spring and summer of clearing out our home of 32 years, we were freshly planted in our new home. We feel we made a good decision to wrangle in our resources and take on this lovely home that was… [Read More]

We live on a scenic road, narrow, big trees that hug the street with lots of twists and turns making visibility around corners challenging. We have gotten to know many… [Read More]
Today was my Dad’s 99th birthday. Amazing! He actually is an amazing man but it wasn’t always something I recognized or allowed myself to experience as his daughter. His inner qualities of perseverance and independence combined with personal habits of exercise and a healthy diet are the primary reason he is still going strong at… [Read More]
What Happens From Here?
It comes around once a year, Mother’s Day, that time those near and dear to you to get to shower you with special experiences, good food, maybe getting to sleep late or not being responsible for cooking, decision making or child care. To show up in the most vibrant, insightful and caring way for this… [Read More]
Today I had lots of practice. Practice to attitude dance. Was it that kind of day for you? Snow on April 4, clients cancelling (understandably!), even a 2 hour dental appointment for this morning was cancelled, and just now a plan to have a good friend over for an end of day glass of wine… [Read More]
