Small Acts of Kindness

  Hi There! Last week I was in Walmart, power walking through the toy isle, searching for a birthday present for one of Ellie’s friends who had an upcoming birthday party. I’d done my research by asking this little nugget what she wanted, so I was zoned in on the stuffed animal section, looking for… Read more »

Comparison Steals Creativity

  I’m not going to lie, this is my fourth attempt in two days to write this post. I’ve spent way too much time typing, editing, deleting, repeat. At this point I just need to go for it. I have a lot to say, but I’m struggling to communicate those thoughts into words. I’ve noticed… Read more »

What’s your System?

  I have this reoccurring daydream where I’m walking through my home and notice my office, my computer, and each bedroom are completely clutter-free and organized. Everything has a place. Simple, clear, and uncomplicated. I know exactly where things go and exactly what I’m supposed to do each day, confident everything I’m doing is moving… Read more »

Creating Memories

Hi There! First off, thank you for all of the love and encouragement over this past weekend. Ellie and I had the most memorable time together at my ten year college reunion and Baylor Homecoming. This trip also happened to fall on what would have been my ten year wedding anniversary to my late husband,… Read more »

Walk Down Memory Lane

Hi There! I hope you’re having a great week so far! In a few days, my daughter, Ellie, and I will be headed to Waco, TX for my <gulp!> ten year college reunion, Baylor Homecoming parade, and BU football game. A dear friend from college blessed us with the tickets and we thought it would… Read more »

Finish

Hi There! Does perfectionism paralyze you from finishing projects and reaching your goals? That’s a resounding yes for me. Recently, my mom insisted I read a book called Finish: Give Yourself The Gift Of Done by Jon Acuff. I’d read his book, Start, a couple of years ago and really liked it, so I was… Read more »

Sweat Out the Crazies

Hello! A few weeks ago, my daughter, Ellie, and I were staying at my parents’ house and, since I knew I had childcare to help with Ellie in the morning (AKA my wonderful dad), I convinced my mom to do a 5:30 AM spin class with me. I rolled out of bed to the sound… Read more »

The Four Tendencies

Recently I finished the latest book by one of my favorite authors, Gretchen Rubin, called The Four Tendencies. I love Gretchen’s books because she writes about human behavior and how creating habits can make our lives more fulfilling. I’ve always been interested in those same subjects and enjoy the process of trying new ways to… Read more »

Doing The Work

Hi There! Starting a business takes a lot of courage. I know this because I remember how insecure, unqualified, and afraid I felt four years ago when I made the decision to start speaking. I ran into a friend a short time ago who just started her own business and, to my surprise and gratitude,… Read more »

Don’t Look Back

What am I doing? Is sharing my story even going to make a difference? Does this even matter? These were the thoughts swirling around in my head while I rapidly applied my lip gloss in the bathroom moments before I stepped up to the podium to speak yesterday. It’s funny how taking time off from… Read more »
