Dating to … Continue reading Books to Read: Relationship Edition
Finally participating in 5 Minute Friday again. The rules are: write for 5 minutes. No over-thinking; no over-editing. This week's prompt is: Middle Ready? GO "Oh, he's married, so he's off the table", I joked at a restaurant with some friends. "Man, you just make it so hard to set you up", a friend joked back. "No, no. … Continue reading “The List”

The theme this week is: "If I Could Write a Letter to Past Me..." Some of my readers know I did this a while … Continue reading Another Letter to Me
Here I sit this rainy Sunday night watching a sappy Hallmark double feature while looking at the barrage of pictures on Pinterest (Paleo food, DIY projects, & pretty clothes, anyone?). Some of the pictures I find myself drawn to tonight are of the wedding & baby announcement type. Perhaps it's because I know several couples … Continue reading Rainy Pinterest Sundays
A broken mind cannot produce a healthy body...and likely will destroy it... Give... That's what this week's Tuesday @ 10 prompt is over at Finding the Grace Within.
