As if the universe is speaking to me directly...

I've been considering some changes in my professional life. Well, not changes so much as continuing down the path I envisioned myself taking 2.5 years ago...a little ahead of schedule. At the time I made the decision to leave the comfort of a full-time benefited position to follow my passion of owning my own wellness based business on my terms I found instead of worry and fear, peace. The past 2.5 have years have offered up several unexpected detours and challenges, yet when I sit here today writing this I still find peace in my decision.

So it's interesting to me that as I ponder the next step over the past few weeks I've been exposed to several writings that keep saying "go forward", "stop waiting", "fear does nothing besides hold us back". First through a friend's blog who also has also faced some change as of late, and now this beautiful message posted on one of the blogs I regularly read.

Coincidence? Maybe.

Maybe not.

Very insightful! I, too, have been thinking a lot about what I am doing with my life, too! I look forward to listening to more videos by that guy!

My Most Read Thoughts


Today while I sat in a classroom supervising students as they worked on their math assignments, I watched Lexi through the window enjoying time with her friends during recess. My heart smiled.

Those moments, moments of learning and carefree fun, those are the moments that SHOULD make up a school day. As a Mom, and an elementary school employee, my heart is breaking over the news and images coming out of Connecticut today. 
I send my kids off to school everyday without a second thought that they will return safely come day's end, just as I'm sure each one of those parents in Newtown did this morning.
Every day I walk into my school for work without a second thought to my personal safety, just as I'm sure each of those teachers, paras, custodians, sectretaries, etc in Newtown did this morning. 
Theories will be published. Evidence will be presented. Words will be exchanged about gun control and the need for change in our current culture of violence. I don't suspec…

DIY: Reusable Produce Bags

With Earth Day festivities gearing up for tomorrow, I thought I'd take a moment to post a short DIY tutorial on making your own reusable cloth produce bags. (Tutorial inspired by my favorite crafty mom blog, Crazy Mom Quilts. Produce bags inspired by running into my friend Laura at the grocery store while she was stuffing her produce into these.) This is my next step in the fight against the excessive use of plastic bags.

Our family has been making small environmentally minded changes in our daily lives over the past few years. We use reusable shopping bags. We've stopped buying/using Ziploc bags and plastic wrap. I'm trying to commute around town via bike more. I'm being more mindful about where the food we buy comes from and how it was produced. We more often hang our laundry on the line to dry in the spring and summer instead of just throwing it in the dryer. (Which is convenient at the moment since our dryer has decided to quit drying.) As we use up chemically clean…

Sunday Morning Silly...

Once in a while Dando's curiosity urges him to venture off the bookshelf so he check out other toys in the house.

I think he thinks Froggy is missing a few marbles.
