Appreciation for the Sun

I picked my daughter up from school on Friday in a cold wintry mess. There was a cross between snow, slush and rain falling from the sky and it reminded me that winter is on its way in. Such is life in upstate New York! However cold and gross last week was though, the weekend… Continue reading Appreciation for the Sun

20 Minutes

Last week I walked into my house after a long day at school where I work as a 2nd grade Teacher Aide. I had both of my small children (2 and 6 years old) in tow and I was extremely close to exploding. I will be honest... as much as I enforce morning time for… Continue reading 20 Minutes

I say No quite a lot. Quite a LOT. The past few weeks I've been stress-fully falling asleep, wondering and worried and concerned. Last night… Continue reading Yes.

Kindness Matters

Today I want to invite you to consider some of these kind suggestions. From my own experience... I think my days go so much better when I've done something kind for someone, (or even for myself!) with no expectation of anything back.

Lessons Learned

Today my daughter - Adelynn Grace, 5 years old - graduated from Kindergarten. I helped her get dressed and brought her outside, tears in my eyes and took a beautiful photo of her standing with the sunshine illuminating her. It was beautiful. Normally, I'm pretty tough. I honestly haven't shed many tears in the past… Continue reading Lessons Learned

I was so excited to take home my brand new Tarot themed calendar, full of different cards, decks, illustrations and interpretations. I loved the idea of each month being designated to a unique card, and also being able… Continue reading The Magician
