Text Message

If you’re my IRL friend (in real life), you’ll know I have 2 preferred modes of contact – in person or via text message. I don’t make a lot of phone calls and most days will pass with me only speaking to two people on the phone – my mom and my best friend. So…

5 Thoughts

Today I’m thinking out loud about: 1. Money: the famous Picasso painting that got sold for $179.4 million dollars… Well forgot about it being sold. Think about it being bought. Someone had $175 million to spare? I don’t know what I would do if I ever had that kind of money but I probably wouldn’t…

Best Of…

A life is made up of lots of little moments – some feel wonderful, some leave us wanting more. But we owe it to ourselves to pluck out the seconds that make our hearts sing and our toes tingle. And treasure them. Best validation: A 2 year old girl I met just last week, when she saw me,…

As Is

What would it take for you to be perfect? Or what would it take for you to be perfectly happy with not being perfect? As Marianne Williamson so eloquently said, We don’t have to do anything to be glorious; to be so is our nature. What I have on my calendar this weekend: Church on Saturday…

Starbucks with The President

I say YES to Hot Chocolate at Starbucks with the secret service! This week’s Write or Die prompt, hosted by Shelly, asks: If you could have a one-hour coffee date with anyone in the world (or on the other side), who would it be? Why? What would you talk about?  There are lots of people I admire,…

Prosperous Friends

Shouldn’t your spouse be your best friend? The title “Prosperous Friends” hints at the term “friends with benefits”, a concept even more intriguing since the characters are married. Ned and Isabel are both writers, who struggle in their relationship. They compete in their writing and in how much they can hurt each other. Married right out…

iPhone 6 (Plus?)

I’ve been trying to decide between the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6Plus. I have to upgrade my phone because I have the iPhone 4 and I can’t upload the newest iOS. For now, it still works but there’s going to come a day when it just doesn’t work and I don’t want to be caught…

From Summer to School

August is over and my favorite month has begun. September usually summons end-of-summer fears and scholastic dreams. And that’s how my weekend was and new week has started. Friday evening ended with a 2 mile evening run, Sabbath morning was spent at church and Sabbath afternoon spent enjoying the beauty of nature. Saturday night, I…

Friday Five

Five things that I love about this week 1. The road trip on Sunday where I added some new states to my state-fridge-magnet collection, slept curled in a fetal position on a bus seat and woke up to eat pecan rolls at Panera at a rest stop in Ohio, and came home to Jamaican food…

Friday Favorites

When she was on the network, every year Oprah revealed her favorite things on her show and the guests lucky enough to be in the audience on that day, would get everything on the list. Unfortunately, I can’t give you a basket of my favorites but I will give you pictures of the things I…
