I'm currently sitting in the airport which is a place I haven't been in quite some time. I'm traveling for work, making my way to a 6 day training which will end with some new certifications and knowledge about how to better support my team. 6 days. With an additional day devoted to travel. It's … Continue reading A 3 Year Old’s Goodbye
I received a Day Designer planner from my parents for Christmas and immediately devoured the annual planning pages. In previous years, I've chosen a phrase or a Bible verse as my inspiration for the year but I'm letting my new planner set the course this time around. As such, I've limited myself to one lone … Continue reading Word of 2018: Engage
Life has been a little hectic lately. In the last 7 weeks or so, I have worked in inordinate amount of overtime. Do you still call it overtime when you're a salaried employee? Not just a few late nights here and there or a few early meetings but multiple days' worth of time. Leading up to our … Continue reading Life has been a little hectic lately.
How do people balance married life with child(ren)? I've been going at it for three years now and I don't think I'm very good at it. They say practice makes perfect but everyone in my family keeps growing and changing. The second I think I'm on to something, I run into a wall or trip … Continue reading The Family Teeter Totter

Halfway through the ride, she stopped. "I need to climb this wall," she said. She hopped off her little bike and scaled the retainer wall … Continue reading A Mile A Day: Day 22

He got home around 9:30 or so - after the sun had set. I live in a great neighborhood but we don't have street lights or … Continue reading A Mile A Day: Day 18
Saturday. What. a. day! In the morning, I took the birthday bicycle to the bike shop to get properly fitted. The surprise gift from my husband was essentially a big gift card; he arranged for me to come try out a few models before completing the deal and although I loved the matte black, I … Continue reading A Mile A Day: Day 13
Tonight's mile was brought to you by this surprise: Oh, and I'm 30.
The weekend should be the easiest time to get in some exercise but what I'm learning about myself is that I do better with setting my priorities during the week. I know that healthy eating can be more difficult during the weekend (hanging out by the fridge isn't good for anyone), but I'm a little … Continue reading A Mile A Day: Day 6
