Last weekend my mom came to town to celebrate her 59th year on earth.  It was a GREAT weekend, filled with so many fun things, it’s hard to list everything.  Here are my top 10 favorite moments:

  1. Trip to Michigan City for outlet shopping! We both found a great p...

I got a new job! I was very blessed to get a job my second day in Valpo.  I am the new Volunteer Coordinator for the United Way of Porter County.  (You can see the celebratory cupcake I treated myself to when I found out I got the job)

On September 25th, two of my best friends got married.  It was a beautiful wedding, filled with love, great entertainment and of course, DANCING! Charlie and Stephanie are two of the best people I know; and I can’t wait to see what happens next for them.  I know they w...

We are finally settled into our new home.  We transitioned from a three bedroom home with extra space to a comfy two-bedroom apartment.  I have to admit, when we first moved, I thought I would hate it.  But our new home has definitely grown on me.  After we got everyth...

Three weeks ago, Tim and I packed up our home at 104 Wallaby Way and moved to Valparaiso, Indiana.  It was very sad to say good-bye, especially since I made friends with some amazing people.  We finished things off with a fun going-away happy hour at Ten Down Under wit...

So, I was having kind of a hard day.  It’s finally hit me that I’m moving.  This is my last week.  I’ve started to pack things up.  I’m going to have to start saying good-bye.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – I’m very blessed to have such amazi...

Weeks are flying by a little too fast for me.  I wanted to give a quick blog shout out to my friend Stephanie who had her bachelorette party two weeks ago.  The weekend was filled with spa treatments, a sweet bridal shower and a kick-butt bachelorette party filled with...

There is love embedded in the subtle simplicity of every day. 

Don’t overlook its gentle magic. 

It is life’s gift.  Take it. 

Let it charm you. 

So, I got my CD of wedding pictures today.  Kudos to Brian Hall Photography.  Looking through all of our pictures, I am re...

Starting over is the bravest kind of starting there is. 

So, I’ve come to the realization that I need to start looking for a new job (thanks to some prodding from my loving husband).  I have to say, I hate the whole process.  I’m not sure what it is.  Realizing that I h...
