How I Found My Inner Strength From Complete Strangers


Recently, I had the pleasure of attending a Women’s Summit on marketing.  I learned a tremendous amount about marketing in the short time I was there, but what I am most excited about were the people I met.  Incredible, powerful, confident, ambitious and UNIQUE women. They came in all sizes, colors, and backgrounds.  They carried […]

New Half Marathon PR!


Finally!  I think I’ve been talking about breaking the 2 hour mark for the half marathon for….well….ever!  It has actually only been 2 years – following my 2:06:08 in 2010 with my first half marathon after becoming a mom.  Somehow I couldn’t believe how close it felt, only 6 minutes after all.  Just a little […]

Why Change Is Good


Where did the time go?  Back in January, I looked out into the 2012 horizon and saw so much time and ability to really dig in and make the most of this year.  Now, here we are at the midway point and …. much has been accomplished, just not what I thought A few years […]

Why We Vote


Today is Super Tuesday here in Ohio and although more of my neighbors are talking about the beautiful weather than politics, its kind of a big day.  As with most new things, I found myself trying to come up with a good simple answer to my son’s question: Why do you have to vote? My […]

The Pinterest Experiments

2012 Resolutions


Why make resolutions anyway? If I am being quite honest, I had never made a New Year’s resolution until I met my husband.  We were aspiring to be better in all aspects of life, but one year (just out of college) he suggested that we do SMART goals.  SMART stands for Specific Measurable Attainable Realistic […]

Crafty Christmas


The easiest way to deal with change is to simply accept it, embrace it and ride the wave! That’s the attitude that I’ve tried to take with this move from the city to the suburb. I have completely immersed myself in all things a good homemaker should, with the exception of sewing, that will come […]

No Hospital Visits = A Successful Thanksgiving


This was the first year we hosted Thanksgiving for the families time and the theme was “No hospital visits”. I promise, that this was a positive message, that really meant “this is my first time cooking a turkey and I hope no one gets food poisoning, dies or looses a limb. All other mistakes are […]

Changing Leaves


Ahhhhh autumn.  The array of red, yellow and green leaves swaying on the trees and sashaying to the ground are beautiful reminders that all things must change.  For if we stay the same, we are not growing. Each year I look forward to the cool breeze and warm sunshine, pumpkin patches, hayrides and apple orchards.  […]

Three Years


Three years ago, my son was born.  To say that it was life changing seems too ordinary & common.  He completely turned our lives upside down & inside out….in a good way!  It’s amazing to think that 3 years have gone by already, but then I stop and think there is no way we’ve done […]
