I was looking through my grandma’s recipe books the other day, and I came across these recipes that she had for things like modeling dough, bubbles, and finger paints. I had all but forgotten that she was a Den Mother, and would make these things not only for my sister, cousins, and me, but also […]
I have been admitted to the hospital exactly 10 times since November of last year, when my heart decided to start acting like now is the time to do the Atrial Fibrillation Happy Dance. And no, I don’t mean to sound flippant or facetious about the whole experience, because I was scared out of my […]
I turned 42 on March 30, and I really wanted a better attitude when I woke up that day, but I never got that wish – until yesterday. And on that day, I was going to come on here and rant about all the shit that has been going on at my retail job; how […]
I have decided to break a little of the mold, and I am now offering many off-niche group boards on Pinterest. I see so many benefits to making this change, not the least of which is being able to connect with you on one more social media platform. It brings my heart so much joy […]
It hasn’t happened yet, but it will. I am very happy to announce that my logo was picked out of (possibly) thousands to be on Matt Tifft’s race car on March 10th at the NASCAR XFINITY series in Phoenix. Yeah, you read that right. Here’s the press release. The Dollar Shave Club (which I adore […]
This post may contain affiliate links, which help support my blog at no additional cost to you. See my disclosure for more information. It’s not a secret that I’ve been going through some cardiac concerns lately. As a patient, I’ve been horrible, and hadn’t seen my cardiologist since I was 26. I figured that since […]
We all have those days (more or less) when we feel not great, and lately mine have been coming less-frequently. My secret is that I have a list of things I do when I’m feeling not that great; spectacular ways to show myself that I am loved and worthy of care and compassion. These 13 […]
If you’re curious about what it means to have a heart like mine, here’s your chance to find out. I have lived with heart disease my entire life. This is my story. Sorta.
I found a bunch of old blog posts from my days as a PR & Marketer in Denver’s thriving music scene. Those were the days where my body still thought it was 20, and my heart was chasing the next bog love of my life. Food has always been a mainstay, and at one point […]
It is already next year in Samoa, Tonga, Kiribati, Australia, Japan, Singapore, and China (who has one time zone, and the entire country goes by what time it is in Beijing), so Happy New Year to those people. If this takes very long to write, it could well be 2018 for my friends in Europe […]

That’s funny, because I’m making this about you. I can’t stand when I’m expressing something on social media, and somebody – unsolicited – drive-by link-drops on my post. Take my post in the Boss Girl Bloggers group from last night, for example. Yesterday, I got my first unsolicited email subscriber on this site, and as you might […]
My super-cool blogging pal, Ell Duclos has issued a general challenge in her Facebook group, Boss Girl Bloggers to answer winter questions and tag other bloggers at the end, who will ostensibly respond. I don’t really chat with that many bloggers outside that group, but she didn’t tag the people I’m going to. Back in […]
Every year, I think the holidays get just a tiny bit crazier. Of course, some days are better than others – the days when it feels like the world heaves a collective sigh, because they’re just content with what’s now. It doesn’t happen often, but when it does, man! What a relief! I like to spread […]
