After more than two years of lock down, for those who celebrate Easter or Passover, this spring was a welcome shift in celebratory festivities.   Traditional values dictate the ceremonial hiding and seeking of decorative eggs, baked ham, Sunday best at church and if you live in my house; Peeps ™ I wanted to do something…Read More

First Love

So sorry that I haven’t been keeping up with you lately.  I’ve been a bit distracted.  In truth, I was spending time with an old love.  Some of you may know what it is like to reconnect with your first love. Initially, awkward, you stumble to find the words that you want to use.  Your…Read More

Home@Work

If we learned anything from the ongoing pandemic, it’s the embrace of the idea that we may have neglected home.  I’m not only talking about the structure, the four walls of physical construct that contain all of our furnishings, our possessions and our, ahem, junk but also those who inhabit our homes; including those who…Read More

Perspective can be a tough thing to gain.  When we are too close to something, our vision can become distorted and we can fail to see what needs to be seen. Our perception of truth, clarity, and expectations can cause us to see what we want to see and not what needs to be seen. …Read More

The Eyes Have It

Product Reviews are back!  It’s been a while since we posted a review but to be fair, it’s been a minute since I’ve tried a new product that warranted rave.

The Healing Nature of Laughter

Who doesn’t like to laugh?  Laughter creates a natural release of tension, stress and toxins.  When we laugh, our body and spirit merge together in a blissful state of happiness. I love to laugh.  Much to my roomie’s chagrin, I laugh out loud with a howling cackle that rivals that of a coven of witches…Read More

A Return to Kindness

I looked forward to this event all year.  Originally scheduled for the summer of 2021, The Kindness Duck Project finally landed in Fort Worth in October.   A newly launched initiative aimed at bringing back kindness with the help of a six story duck. Founded earlier this year (2021) by Executive Director Kyle Warren who…Read More

Thankful

Thanksgiving was a low key event at my house.  I spent most of the day watching movies.  It is amazing how quickly we can get sucked into a movie binge and I’m definitely there this week. The pack was walked, my roomie was making his Thanksgiving dinner rounds and I found myself, blissfully, at peace…Read More
