NatureBox Review

Last week I got in my first Nature box.  It is a subscription service where you receive healthy, wholesome snacks delivered right to your door.  Keep these around and there will be no more excuses for grabbing that candy bar.   I have them shipped to my work since that is where I spend most of my time during the day and when I’m more likely to grab something I don’t need.   I had never heard of NatureBox before {Read More}

Mercedes Half Marathon Weekend 2/2

As promised, this is part 2 of my weekend recap and it’s all about the RACE!  ๐Ÿ™‚ It wasn’t until just a few weeks ago I actually signed up to run this race.  Why?

This morning I headed out for my morning walk.  I try to be out the door by 6:15 and this time of the year in my neck of the woods the sun hasn’t come up yet and there is just enough light to see.  It was crisp with some fluffy high clouds.  About half a mile in I looked up in the East and there was beautiful shades of pink on the clouds.  Ranging from the lightest of pink through {Read More}


As I was out for my morning stroll I noticed fog, but only in some places. It got me to thinking how some areas in my life are very clear, I know what I want and I know how to get it, while others are very foggy.  I may know what I want, but I don’t know how to get it or I may have a good idea how the process works but don’t know the what the end result {Read More}
