stocking up for the season

It's Black Friday and I am stocking up for the season in a different way. With the forecast bringing rain and snowflakes for the day, we're staying in. I have allowed the kids to overindulge on video games while I overindulge on Thanksgiving dinner leftovers and create "Hallmark" moments for myself to stock up on peace and joy as I cross over into the December holidays. As always, overindulging will bring consequences later, but what's life without adventure? My kids will be cranky from way too much screen time and not enough eating and breathing oxygen. I will wonder

the boss of me

I love being bossy. I'm a firstborn, so it comes naturally. But when I think about the things I want to chat about to you, my first criteria is that I do not sound as if I am bossing you around by telling you how to live. I don't like being bossed. And I've lived enough life to know that the only one qualified to boss you is you. My journey is not yours. My hope is that in sharing my stories with you, they spark something in you that gets you excited to do something intentional for your

who needs a hug

Since we've gone "contactless" because of COVID, I want to touch now. That's what happens when you tell me "no". I'm a hugger and I know that makes non-huggers cringe, but you just might want a hug after the COVID hibernation. When we get the go ahead to touch random people again I am going to shriek and run toward anyone I see and hug them! Get ready. If you see me running toward you, you only have nanoseconds to decide on "fight or flight" because if I catch you, I'm hugging you. And shrieking. And I am going

i got nothin’

I'm here to tell you that I have nothing to tell you. I've been wanting to chat with you for weeks now, but I don't have anything to say. I got nothin'. I know, it's hard to believe. Me without anything to say. That might just be the strangest thing that has happened in 2020. And how do I add pictures to go along with my story when I don't have a story? I do not even know what to take pictures of for your entertainment. I feel like the kid who has to do show 'n tell but

in it for the snacks

When my kids and I go hiking, the best part about the adventure is what they find in their packs. That's right...the snacks! Oh sure, they love all the nature that presents itself to us and the adventure of a new place. It wouldn't be the same if we were just home eating the same snacks. A small hike takes us hours because they like to find a great place to sit and pull out their treats. I normally pack snacks, a lunch and plenty of extra food. Some of the goodies they need to pass around family-style and
