This morning, I had a gut check with Greg about us. He has no idea that is what it was, but it confirmed his unconditional love and acceptance of me.
We’ve been hearing about Me to We, ways to strengthen our marriages as to honor God, at church. Every week, a new focus and lesson finds us pulling closer together. Maybe that’s why this moment this morning worked like it did.
Have you ever been disappointed in yourself? Sickened by what you saw in the mirror? That was me just about six years ago. I was at my heaviest weight and scared for the person I’d become. That’s why I started running, and why I refuse to be stopped. Follow along with me as I share my half marathon journey – I’ll be running my second half in Pittsburgh this May – with weekly updates.

It’s official, 2017 is here and I am ready to take it on. This year, my word of the year will be faithful. My goals will be around ways I can be faithful in all areas of my life, starting yesterday!
It’s a brand new slate, time to get focused and work on the things that matter (and let go of the things that don’t). This year, I will be focusing on being faithful in the following areas (psss – they’re now all categories in the blog menu, too!):
Today marks three years of me being a Thirty-one Independent Consultant. This sisterhood has meant a lot to me over the years.
The ladies I’ve met “just selling bags” have become friends.
The friends who have opened their homes for me to hold parties have brought me much needed girl time.
I’m ending November (a month of gratitude) with one of the things I am most grateful for, loving. And Loving, too.
Without the courage, patience, and love between Richard and Mildred Loving, what Greg and I have would be illegal. We would be hiding our family, or might not even be us at all.
Making music. It’s been in my soul for as long as I can remember from singing at church in children’s Christmas programs, jamming to the Oldies and Disney songs with the family in the van (you can guess if that’s a now or then statement), playing flute in the band, or being part of the high school musicals.
Less than 48 hours after hearing our country had not elected our first female POTUS, I had the honor of attending an event with my former colleague, friend, and cousin that celebrated women leaders. We were encouraged to keep our heads up and that the battle didn’t end with the election results. Even though I’m no longer in the grocery industry, I’m still a female leader. I’m on a cloud of happiness from the event and would like to share 8 quick takeaways from Top Women in Grocery’s Leadership Development Program to inspire others like I was.
Yesterday, I took a blogging break. Frankly, I took a break from pretty much everything but work. I was grateful for that Wordless Wednesday.
On that Wordless Wednesday, I woke up next to this guy.
We woke up to half the country rejoicing and half the country saddened. Guess what? If it had gone the other way, it still would be the same thing. Yup. It would have. What might have been different was the reactions. I don’t know, but I do know God has a plan and I’m ready to ride that out.
It’s November, which for many of us means it is 30 Days of Thankful. Follow along with me this month as I gather the things I am thankful for this year. Today, I’ll be talking about taking chances and the happiness it’s brought my way.
