7-Day Art Challenge Day 4: Poetry

So, I’ve been talking a lot about visual arts in these posts. That’s clearly a huge part of my life these days, but at times I like to remind myself of my writing roots. My friend Tamera tagged me in a 7-day art challenge recently.Β The rules are simple: post 7 pieces of art and talk…

Say yes, 2012 (hot yoga, pink hair, rock climbing)

So, it’s almost February, and I’ve finally decided on my New Year’s resolution. And I want you to do it with me. More about that at the end, but be ready, my friends. I had a little bit of an idea about what I wanted it to be in my head, and I’ve been kind…

Instead, I decided to entertain the restaurant with my lovely fainting episode which landed me in the hospital for three days. That…

Minnie Mouse, here we come …

So. Disneyworld. My apologies for not updating this sooner. In fact, Crystal emailed me several weeks ago telling me she just had to know Mia’s response, and I was so grateful for the reminder! I wrote recently about how my niece, Mia, is getting a trip to Disneyworld for her 5th birthday (technically, all the…

On ambien and Joy Bauer

So, you may have heard me reference this little piece of magic that I have recently discovered. Joy Bauer’s “Your Inner Skinny” is a perfect guide to nutrition, in my opinion. She shows you how to get your fruits and vegetables, proteins, fats and carbs all balanced in a healthy way that helps you get…
