Welcome to my little space on the internet.

Picture of me - tired with coffee cup

The plan is to keep my little space updated with pictures, thoughts, music I love, and books I am reading, but this isn’t always the case. There is always something else to do. Finding time to hang out with my family will always be my priority.

This site contains my personal thoughts and family photos taken during our travels and our everyday life—a small window into this working mom’s life.

Here’s hoping I can keep up with my family, life, and the website…

Alarm Clock

I'm not sure what this year will hold. Will events be something that happens this year? Will I run in another race this year? Will I be able to get my business moving? Will vaccines be available and be a key to getting life back to "normal"?

Songs of my life

Give Heaven Some Hell

First time I heard this I thought of my sister.  I’m not exactly sure what the says about her, except she was a force of nature when she was alive.  I am also pretty sure she was an angel over my daughter’s shoulder this year when she needed one. As I said, a force of nature.

I was pretty certain the two of us would wind up old some day, sitting on a dock some where, beer in hand, discussing our lives. Family, work, business, love and everything else.  This was just not to be, so until I see you again, save a place and keep giving us all a little hell.
