Peace and Strength

I’m not quite sure how to start this post. Have you ever been waiting for bad news, knew it was coming and dreaded it? Or maybe you were surprised by it. I can’t decide which is worse, not having time to prepare or sitting with that heavy dread, thick in the pit of your stomach. [...]

Con-Grad-ulations

Happy Mother’s Day, everyone! I know that today is particularly reserved for the celebration of moms, but with your pardon, I have something else I want to celebrate today.  (I can promise you my mom was okay with this post – I wrote this one about her last year while I was in Peru.

The 4 B’s

I don’t know if you guys went to high schools with strict dress codes, but the rules at my high school got more and more ridiculous as the years went on. You had to be sure that the 4 B’s were covered and not in any way distracting. You know the 4 B’s, right? Back, [...]

Ready to Spring into the Outdoors

Happy Spring, Everyone! The first day of Spring was this week and I am SO ready for warmer weather. (It was also my dad’s birthday week – Happy Birthday, Dad!)

The Best of (my) Ireland

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day weekend, everyone! Conveniently enough, last week I told you I would tell you all about the wonderful things that I loved in Ireland- how better to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day than by sharing my favorite experiences? A couple of things stand out to me when I think back to my week [...]
