Staying Humble

Dad always says to me “make sure you always stay the same.” It can be a not-so-humble world out there.  We love our selfies (heck, I’m even trying to up my selfie game), we love our ‘things’, and we love bragging about what we have and what we think we are.  We love reminding people […]

I Remember This One!

The year was 2008. Milwaukee (Wisconsin) City & County officials finally picked their Christmas tree from a local family.  The tree would be decorated & on display downtown for all to see!

Whoever told me our body changes at 30, LIED.

Regret.

  We all feel regret, whether we choose to admit it or not. I am turning 37 this fall.  I normally love the aging process, and gaining all that wisdom, but something about turning 35, then 36, and soon 37, is really making me anxious.  I have never felt the need to stop the clock […]

Icing.

Everything at this point is icing on the cake. I mean it. I have never wanted anything more than to live the life I am living right now. That doesn’t mean I won’t strive for more, I certainly will, and do… but the right now is pretty darn incredible. So what’s the problem? I’m not […]
