I am in love with this new song by sara bareilles. She is an amazing songwriter. I want every little girl to hear this song and have the courage to be brave, speak up, and be strong.  The world needs brave strong women who can stand up and make a difference.  Stand up for what [...]

hard things

April 16, 2013 | Just life | Permalink

Yesterday was full of hard things.  Sadness.  Innocent people suffering, even loosing their lives.  My heart is with Boston. It is hard to take in, understand and process these events that keep happening.  The Why in the mess of it all? I also have a work-friend who’s dad is fighting cancer.  I feel for her.  It brings [...]

Tax day – weekend wrap

Happy Tax day.  I’m really glad that I did my taxes in February.  I’m grateful for the country where we live, but sometimes I’m not grateful to pay so many taxes. Today, when I left for work my tulips looked beautiful with a background snow dusting.  To be honest, i’m getting over the snow but it keeps [...]

goodbye spring

Do you know what is the worst? When a winter strom comes in and kills all the almost-blooming-tulips. It’s a wierd storm.  It’s a wind storm with winds and winter-tundra-esque with 70+MPH winds.  Just think –  the plains of wyoming. I guess, I should be glad that the only thing damaged was my tulips.  I [...]

There is a whole lot going on in this outfit. I like it. I am loving that I can use all my thrift store finds,  patters, colors and grandma belts to create some funky fun outfits. The trends are so fun right now. Don’t worry about that my hair isn’t done and my bathroom is [...]

Easter. What a beautiful holiday.  Spring is wonderful and the symbols of life after death, spring after winter, the miracle of Christ, and the hope and peace that we will see our loved ones again.  My mom.  B’s Dad.  My grandparents.  My sister.  Those loved ones we’ve lost we will see again, all because of the hope [...]

B’s dad was an amazing man.  Yesterday was his birthday and we celebrated his life.  We go to his grave and let balloons fly up to him, we go to dinner and spend time as a family. I wish that I would have had the chance to know him on this earth.  We would have been really [...]
