It’s hard for me to believe that we are in the last week of the first month of 2017 and it seems like a huge blur.   When I look back, I can’t figure out where the month has gone, and I also can’t figure out what I’ve done this past month, although I know […]

Sunday we celebrated “Friendsgiving” with a few friends.  One couple and their adorable children, plus the husband of a friend of ours.  She’s visiting her family and he was ‘home alone’, so we thought he would enjoy spending the day with us eating good food, laughing and playing games.   He felt that he would […]

That title sounds pretty gloomy doesn’t it?    It isn’t- I assure you.    It’s the week of Thanksgiving.   It’s also the beginning of the end of November, which means that we are walking up to the door of December and preparing to knock. This year has been a blur for me.    Seriously- […]

It’s hard to believe that in a few days my birthday month begins. One month long celebration of the month I was born. Also, this year will mark the last one in my 40’s. Nine years that have taught me so much, given me so many gifts, wonderful friendships & also hasn’t been without it’s […]

The title pretty much describes how I am feeling at the moment. Physically, I feel fantastic, but I have SO much to do between now and the time we leave for our vacation, that my head is spinning. Creative painting projects for the living room have pretty much taken the back seat, since I have […]

In a world where not much surprises me these days, I’ll admit that I’ve been very surprised and saddened by the circus that has become our next presidential election. I intentionally do not watch the news, because I prefer not to have the negativity floating in my  head that seems to be on a continual […]

One of my life’s greatest inspirations has always been my mom.    Even though life has taken me thousands of miles from ‘home’, I still call her at least twice a day, sometimes more.   Then there’s always Facebook, WhatsApp and other means of interaction.     She’s been my greatest teacher, my greatest cheerleader […]

Choices and Consequences

I’ve been thinking quite a bit lately about choices- and how when we make them, we don’t always take the time to consider the consequences. A while back I watched a TED talk about ‘unintentional consequences’- which is what happens when we make choices without thinking about the potential long-term consequence. It has happened throughout […]

I’ve been doing some planning as to what changes I would like to make within my little company in the coming months and year. Rather than doing my taxes myself, I’ve hired an accountant to take care of everything. Someone like russalleninc.com who can give me the answers I need, and yet also make my […]

There are few things that excite me more than to see people that I love filled with happiness and joy. Recently, two of my dearest friends have decided to get engaged, and the wedding plans are in full swing. I’ve been blessed enough to be asked to be a part of the planning and celebration, […]
