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

Comedic Relief

My husband and I love to drive places. We have done the trip to New York from Virginia and vice versa many many times. We've also driven to Florida from New York and back several times in the past 5 years. One thing that kept us sane, and awake during these treks, comedy. Yup. Did… Continue reading Comedic Relief

After 100 Days

In December, I wrote a blog about writing a letter to Santa Claus. Some people probably thought I was nuts, fair enough. However... I took that act pretty seriously, and more important was what I asked for for Christmas last year. There were 2 things. A new laptop... And a better relationship and understanding of… Continue reading After 100 Days

Determined to See

Several years ago, I remember having a conversation with a few of my friends about our personalities. It came up for me, that I am a very stubborn and determined person. Those who know me are free to snicker... because to this I am guilty. It turns out that astrologically speaking, I am a Capricorn… Continue reading Determined to See

How We Live our Years

Several years ago I was listening to a really inspirational documentary that was talking about law of attraction, positive thinking and how our thoughts dictate where our lives go. One of the women said something along the lines of "you can live the same year 90 times, or you can live 90 wonderful years". Happy… Continue reading How We Live our Years

Dear Santa,

Writing your Christmas list to Santa Claus is not just for children...
