Advent Begins 2016

Amaryllis Christmas Flowers

I know it’s been a while since I blogged… in fact, I think this past November was the very first month I didn’t blog AT ALL since I began blogging in 2005. I am sure you can imagine, that a cancer diagnosis changes a lot of things, and I just let my blog take a […]

Free State of Jones : A Bit of American History from the Civil War Era

Free State of Jones

It’s been a while since I reviewed a movie, but you all know how much I love history, and I was THRILLED to get to attend a screener for the Free State of Jones this past week. It opens today at the theaters, so if you are intrigued, like I was, to see how they […]

I began this post a few days ago… but life gets away from you. For the past week, I’ve been falling in to bed too tired to even check Instagram or Lift (not usual for me). Blogging has been on the backest of back burners. Sorry, friends. And so, I offer you this boring list […]

In honor of the Chevy Corvette I am driving to the Blissdom Conference in Dallas this week, I thought I would share a few automotive memories from my Texas past… The first memory of a car I have was the time I smashed my forehead on the dash of a 1970 Buick Estate Wagon that […]

WARNING: This post might make you hungry. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. No commercial yuck, just family, friends, and food. The things that nourish the body and soul. I tend to be absorbed by the busy holiday cooking and eating (and even, yes… shopping this year – despite my objections to Black Friday). I don’t […]
