Sunday Scenes: the S’s


The past few Sunday posts have been all about the “snapshots.” I actually stole this idea from Mama Pea and today I am stealing another idea from Lindsay. I’m pretty sure Katie did a post on S’s as well, so let’s just say I’m a theme stealer. But hey, when you have such creative “blends,” you can’t help but want to be like them, am I right? So here are my Sunday Scenes, in … [Read more...]

To Mourn the Storm


This weekend has been one of many mishaps and many goodhaps?? Is that a word?  But there is one thing that could not escape my mind. Sandy. Just as we share in each other joys, God teaches us to share in each other's sorrows as well. My heart has been aching for those affected by hurricane Sandy. Mourning is a part of life, and we often just ignore the feelings when we hear … [Read more...]

Not Really but kinda Wordless Wednesdays: Bahamas Days


Ahh, one more day here. It’s gone by fast, too fast. But I think it’s because we’ve stayed busy. I know a lot of people think we are on vacation, but nope, that’s not the case. We just get to work in paradise for a week. Can’t complain. It's definitely a vacation from the norm though. I thought' I’d share a little bit of what goes on here and then follow it up with a lot of … [Read more...]

Wordless Weekend

Passion and Work… the best of both worlds! Dreaming and Living.. yes, they can coexist. Nourishment.. for myself and for others. A good BALANCE. Adventurous …. need I say more? Rejuvenate.… in … [Read more...]

Food & Family: Marvelous in My Monday


If I really wanted to I could abbreviate this title to F&FMIMM, but I didn’t. I’ll save you the brain space on this Monday. Speaking of Monday, Happy Monday. Monday’s are a little different for me since I usually try to work a bit during the weekend. Come Monday I like to take a little extra time to run errands, chill, etc. But this Monday is marvelous for more than … [Read more...]

Enjoy the View


This was our last weekend in the Bahamas. Another round of long runs, bike rides, and swimming. But before we hopped into training mode, we got to enjoy some boating in “recovery day” mode. Yes Friday was recovery, from the week of training, then Saturday and Sunday were longer training hours. I hopped in a few swim here and there and tackled a slow slow slow 5k. It felt good … [Read more...]

Life Snapshot(s)


Pictures can be powerful. Am I right? I mean they can easily show an emotion, a thought, a feeling, a reaction, a memory in the making, etc. As I browsed through the past few pictures on my camera and phone, I saw just that. One big BALL of LIFE wrapped around a Snap Shot. Let me explain, or rather, let the pictures explain. And the words, feelings, and emotions of … [Read more...]



I’ve been trying to get this post up all day, but you know, sometimes life just happens. But as soon as I sat down to go through all the GENUINE pictures, life just slowed down. It was peaceful, it was quiet, it was soothing. Words cannot express how much JOY I had going through these pictures. It truly was a blessing in my week. And now, I must share these blessings. So sit … [Read more...]
