Who am I? Delve a little deeper into who I am and what makes me tick.

My Gemini Twin

“I cannot even imagine where I would be today were it not for that handful of friends who have given me a heart full of joy. Let’s face it, friends make life a lot more fun.” ~ Charles R. Swindoll I am a firm believer that people come into our life at times when we need that particular personality or traits ….

New York Love

In the last 24 hours I have been on a rollercoaster of emotion. I have sat down numerous times since last night trying to put into words what I am feeling and failing miserably. The one thing I can write is how incredibly grateful I am for all the love my friends and family bestowed on me the last 24 hours. I thought I ….

Arachnophobia: Oh It Is Real!

“There’s something about most phobias where there’s a tiny, tiny corner where you think this really actually could happen.” ~ Roz Chast I think of myself as a pretty tough cookie. All those scenes on Grey’s totally fine. Pain equals no gain. Even critters, I have handled from mice in my hair to the New York City Roach. Do I like ….

Oh Hermine Don’t Rain On Our Labor Day Parade

“New Orleans lives by the water and fights it, a sand castle set on a sponge nine feet below sea level, where people made music from heartache, named their drinks for hurricanes and joked that one day you’d be able to tour the city by gondola.” ~ Nancy Gibbs Labor Day Weekend is upon us peeps, which also happens to translate ….

The Teachings of the Young

At first it was age, then it was health reasons. Then the world seemed to fall apart. Even when ….

The Versatile Blogger Award

“No legacy is so rich as honesty.” ~ William Shakespeare The beautiful Nida from Shopaholic Blog has given me the honor of nominating me for the Versatile Blogger Award. If you haven’t already, please check out her fabulous blog. Not only is she super duper sweet and Bohemian cool, but she also takes one for the team by testing out Vegan products. Reviewing ….

The Vortex of a Scale’s Unmoving Numbers

“I used to be that crazy person that was strict about what I did and didn’t eat. I was so diligent with exercise. And as soon as I stopped thinking about it, I lost weight. I wasn’t stressing about it. The balance and relaxing is what’s really helped me.” ~ Phoebe Tonkin I don’t own a scale. I use too. ….

Going for a Bonus

“Somehow I kept my head above water. I relied on the discipline, character, and strength that I had started to develop as that little girl in her first swimming pool.” ~ Esther Williams As the youngest, by a good fifteen years, I got dragged around a lot! That included moving siblings into school. Even at three years old, my little ….

Gemini Baby and Lucky 13

 Like a typical Gemini I’m changeable, I can be two different types of people. I can be very outgoing, but sometimes very shy. ~ Denise Van Outen I use to hate the number 13. As a kid my brothers would terrorize me and tell me how unlucky I am, that my birthday fell on the thirteenth. And if it was ….
