Why is it that I feel more close to family in the Fall? I know I can be busy all year long, including the Fall, but for some reason as the temperatures and leaves drop, my heart is filled with gratitude. I feel like the weekends slow and I have little moments that last longer than any other time of year. Maybe it is the promise that everything changes. No matter what change is always around the corner, full of promise and good. Even if it is a bad change, it all works together for my good in the end. My sister in love brought me a mocha today, I played Scrabble and had tea with beautiful friends and saw such a beautiful promise of young ladies growing up to be such wonderful women, wise and loving. I’m listening to some calm music that makes me feel like I’m going to be okay. Through tough times I know that I know that I know, everything changes, except the Faithful one. He who created Fall, everything I love, and me.

A distinctive scent, a soft pattering of rain, a quiet moment of absolute silence, a little moment of refreshing to my soul. I named a music station after my favorite moment in that journey, and one of my very greatest pleasures is visiting once again just a brief moment in time, when the world was strange and new to me, and it was all mine.
The smell of burning rubber filled my lungs, I batted my eyelashes to protect my eyes from flying pieces of tire, I barricaded myself behind concrete barriers… and I loved it! Today was Sideways Saturday, the first drift event of Montana (more to come I hope) . The beauty was of the simplicity of it all. Get… Continue reading Sideways Saturday
My new year’s resolution was “blog & jog“. So far I’ve been doing alright (12 lbs down!), lately I’ve been doing a little better due to some accountability with my friends that also use the little bracelet that counts steps. My Fitbit is pretty easy to use, is unobtrusive and matches with just about anything… Continue reading Fitbit Review- Blog&Jog
It is one of my passions to have people over to my house. To make them feel welcome from the time they spot my front door to the moment they get in their car to leave. An undeniably huge part of that experience is my attitude. I know from experience (a couple of crazy moments… Continue reading Versatile Front Entry
