What do you dream about at night? Sometimes my dreams don’t make sense. “Why aren’t there any stalls in this upscale bathroom? And why is it so crowded in here?” Sometimes they are really terrifying. “I’m dead because someone cut off my foot?” Okay, those are nightmares. The best dreams are the ones where something I’ve wanted comes true. “This …

I’m a fairly positive person. I like to feel happy most of the time. But you know, if I didn’t ever feel sad, or angry, or scared that would be a pretty flat existence, wouldn’t it? Feeling the range of emotions from time to time gives life texture and depth. Granted, I’m not one who wants to wallow in strongly …

If you like to walk off the beaten path on a dewy morning wear your rain boots. It’s more interesting by far to get off the path but it does wear on your wardrobe.

We don’t get much snow where I live in Tennessee, USA. As a kid, this was a real bummer for me. I loved playing in the snow. As an adult, there are advantages to NOT having so much snow. I don’t have shovel the driveway or wake up to no power. Still, I enjoy seeing show falling and it blanketing …

Why do we love coffee so much? I’m more of a “froufrou” coffee drinker. Give me a mocha frappe any day! For me the coffee adds a layer of flavor to the chocolatey goodness. A little kick and bite. Yum! Plus you’ll get behind-the-camera access! would you like to share this post with your friends?

We all want to fit in and yet be our own special person. So confusing! Perhaps it would be better to say there are times when we want to fit in and other times when we want to be our own person. The trick is balancing the two so that YOU are at your best. Plus you’ll get behind-the-camera access! …
