• Will you be my friend?

    When you see it like this, you realize that our Facebook life can be quite absurd. Thank you www.twoboysopera.com and Paige for first posting this on YOUR FB wall for me to find…and now share!

  • Mother’s and Father’s Days put me in a pensive mood

    Words Unspoken. “I remember when I was younger, my mom said the reason my dad and I always clashed was because we were too much alike. I always thought we looked alike but I wasn’t sure how else I was like him. He is sort of reserved while I am an extrovert. He can be strict while I am not….”  Continue reading here. Thank you to all the Moms who helped me become the Mom I am Today. Excerpt. “It’s Mother’s Day weekend and there are muilti-generation families celebrating here. They wear matching outfits.  If my mom and grandmother were alive, I don’t think we’d be wearing matching outfits but…

  • You are What You Eat.

    I photograph what I eat. It’s nothing new. Come to a BlogCrush gathering and see the camera flashes go off when a dish is served. It’s an unwritten rule – we all know not to start eating till we’ve taken pictures. My husband wonders why I can’t eat without first documenting my food.

Social Media makes you accountable. Post a status update about that new diet and your friends (or at least facebook friends) are sure to check up on you. Tweet a question or an idea…

  • Hair Today Gone Tomorrow

    I went out and done did it. Cut 12 inches off my hair. Okay so it was months ago but I’m only posting now. It seemed more than a hair cut then- it felt to me like a major change. It wasn’t the first time I’d had short hair but this felt different – it was liberating. Over the last year, I was living frugally and my usual $50 hair cuts were the last thing on my mind. You see, I liked making a day of going to the salon and getting my hair washed, cut and colored – so the cost was upwards of $50. I tried a cheaper…
