Fitness Friday: Moderation

Posted Dec 26 2014 in , ,

I’m on a constant state of searching for balance these days. I’m an all-or-nothing person by nature, a perfectionist if you will. Don’t get me wrong, that particular trait has done well for me in my life–but as with any great strength, it’s also a great weakness. So, when I do things, I tend to […]

Thursday – Christmas Day – Angel’s DO Exist!

Posted Dec 25 2014 in , , , , , ,

(Christmas and Techno Thursday don’t seem to go together, so here is a reposting of a blog from December 2012, but one worth sharing. I hope you are as inspired as I am). When I was a kid, my parents used to take me over to my cousin’s house to play. We jumped on the […]

Tuesday Tunes: Silent Night

Posted Dec 23 2014 in , , ,

Some memories don’t dim but only grow brighter with age. For me, one night stands out more clearly than most. Christmas Eve. Christmas Eve services during my childhood were magical. The pastor dimmed the church’s lights and he lit his own candle from the Christ candle. Through the darkness, the simple quiet words of long-loved […]

Monday Memories: Christmas Love

Posted Dec 22 2014 in , , , ,

My mother made Christmas beautiful and special. Not because of the beautiful table she set with her wedding china, or the candles or the presents under the tree. But because each decoration, every gift, every special touch was touched by love. Perhaps my favorite Christmas item is our Christmas stockings. My mom made them sometime soon after […]

Fitness Friday: One Step at a Time

Posted Dec 19 2014 in , , , ,

I tend to be an all-or-nothing personality. I’m either awesome or an utter failure. That trait is great when I’m awesome; not so great when I turn into a turtle and hid in my shell. The last few years I’ve been pretty good at exercising, but when I have a book due or things get […]

Tuesday Tunes: Hallelujah!

Posted Dec 16 2014 in , , , ,

As a teenager, I was in the A Capella Choir at my high school for three years. Each year during Christmas we would have a concert culminating in the Hallelujah Chorus by Handel. There’s nothing I love more. Here is the Mormon Tabernacle Choir singing it…and for a smile, The Silent Monks, just because I […]

Monday Memories: Secret Ingredients

Posted Dec 15 2014 in , , ,

Old family recipes are the best. I remember my Grandpa’s Rigatoni sauce, my Nonnie’s chocolate cake recipe and a few others. But since it’s the holidays, I have to mention our family Christmas Cookie recipe. I remember my mom pulling out an old cookbook, it’s pages slightly stained with vanilla, and turning to a page with […]

Wacky Weekend: Christmas Can Be Funny

Posted Dec 13 2014 in , , , , ,

My favorite memories of Christmas are candlelight services, singing Silent Night outside, all of us holding candles, and a star-filled sky above us. There was something magic and holy about those nights during my childhood. And that is still where the heart of Christmas lies for me. But…there is also fun and joy during the […]

Fitness Friday: It’s All About the Shoes!

Posted Dec 12 2014 in , ,

I was working out on Tuesday and my feet started killing me right in the middle of my workout. The reason: my shoes. I supinate a bit, so I really need shoes that support. Last week I knew that I was finding it more difficult to keep my heel down during my wide squats. I […]

Techno Thursday: I’m Not Smarter Than a Fifth Grader

Posted Dec 11 2014 in , , ,

I received a phone call from my brother today. My fifth-grade niece brought home a math problem. I took one look and my jaw dropped. Granted I haven’t been in fifth grade for a VERY long time, but this just had me stumped. I was able to *eventually* figure it out and I analyze data […]

Wednesday Wisdom: Think of Others

Posted Dec 10 2014 in , , ,

How we treat others shows more about character than anything else we do. Sometimes I think we really need to get out of our own heads. Take a moment today and put yourself in someone else’s shoes. The view might appear quite … surprising!

Tuesday Tunes: A Pentatonix Twist on Christmas

Posted Dec 9 2014 in , , , , , ,

This is December, a month of celebration for Christmas. One of my favorite elements of the season is the music. Silent Night during a candlelight service, O Holy Night by a soloist during church, my dad and brother singing We Three Kings with alternate lyrics that my mom would frown on. I tend to embrace the traditional, […]

Monday Memories: My First Books

Posted Dec 8 2014 in , , , ,

Someone asked me the other day why I started reading? Really, it was my parents. I remember going to the public library each week with my mom to pick out new books. I loved to read. I loved the stories. I loved losing myself in them. For me a couple of series stand out. One […]

Posted Dec 6 2014 in , , , ,

Okay, so this weekend, I’m going to be doing a little Christmas baking–which in itself should be comical, however, I wanted to share one of the videos that truly makes me grin. Just because it’s a wacky weekend :-). Babies really do make me smile.

Fitness Friday: Water, Water, Everywhere

Posted Dec 5 2014 in , , ,

One of the things I’ve learned about myself during my health journey is that I don’t drink enough water. It’s easy enough to figure out when I do. I feel better, my skin looks better, I breathe better, and I don’t build up water. I’m VERY sensitive to all kinds of salt; I have been […]

Techno Thursday: Magazine vs. Clip

Posted Dec 4 2014 in , , , ,

As most of you know, I write romantic suspense. That means my heroes and/or my heroines know a thing or two about guns. Luckily, my dad is a competitive silhouette shooter (shooting at small metal targets).  He taught me to shoot and about weapons. One of my pet peeves is the incorrect usage of a […]
