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}

Here’s to NEW things in 2015

I know I know it’s February and I’m just now figuring out what I want MY 2015 to look like! Some make resolutions, others have goals to work towards, even others assign a word, quote or motto of the Year.  I’ve racked my brain trying to come up with that one great resolution, goal or word to no avail.  I actually have many mini goals 🙂  I just felt like without this one great thing I’m wondering aimlessly; ok, not {Read More}

#TakeTheLeap Yoga Challenge – Yes you heard me correct

Totally out of my comfort zone with this post but I’m thinking out of the box and I know once I commit to this I will love it and it will help me in my running. When I think about yoga, the first thought that comes to mind is fear, being honest here. :l Yoga intimidates me and makes me feel awkward because I can’t do the poses very well. That’s why I am SO hesitant at first but giving {Read More}

February is full of Challenges

Well the first month of 2015 is behind us and February has slipped in under the radar!
