Monday Mondays 2.13.17

  Last week my husband took me to San Diego so I could be with him while he was on a business trip.  I love doing that, except I always feel bad that I get to “play” while he has to work! This trip turned […]

It’s college football season!  My favorite season of the year.  Well, if we’re talking real seasons, that would be Spring, but otherwise, I could watch college football all day every day.  I’m not an LSU fan, or a Boise State fan, but I pay attention […]

Enjoy the road that you’re on this week!  Be blessed & live well!


Monday Mondays 10.5.15

Raise your hand if you’ve you ever felt inundated, confused and distracted.  If you could see me right now, you’d probably see me jumping up and down waving my hands violently like I’m stranded on a desert island and need rescue. No.  Not really.  I mean, […]

  This past week we did something we have rarely done over the course of our lives – gone to the fair!  Above and beyond that… we even entered something in the fair, and came away with ribbons!  WooHoo! In April, we bought a couple […]

Monday Mondays 8.31.15


Sometimes it’s the simple things that make your day. Usually, it’s the simple things that make your day, because most days are simple. Most days aren’t red carpet worthy,jump out of an airplane or “make it off the Titanic alive” kinds of days.

Most days are just… days.

Days filled by the mundane.  Laundry, filling up the car with gas, making phone calls to take care of some problem and being forced to listen to a 5 minute robo-list of choices, pruning the hedges in the front yard, brushing your teeth…

Mundane.  Simple.


So it was the other day, the day after my daughter’s birthday.  The birthday she ended up spending in bed with a 103° fever.  The next day she was supposed to go on a Young Life retreat, so the next morning, still with a fever, she drove to the doctor to see if she could still go (she did.)  Modern medicine is a marvel, isn’t it?  Anyway, no matter how old she is, every cough, every trip to the bathroom she made, kept me in full-mom mode, and I got very little sleep that night.  Knowing my sleepless ways, she stopped at a Starbucks and brought a coffee to me at work. (White Mocha Coconut Frappucino, by the way.  The girl speaks my love language.)

Simple things.


That’s what we’ll remember and take with us when we leave this world.

Simple things.



As with most Mondays, here are the things that caught my attention through the previous week.  Most aren’t earth-shattering, just (to keep with this week’s theme)… simple.  Make it a great one!

Monday Mondays 7.20.15

Life is like a garden, you never know what you’re going to get!  I love my little old man tomato, and the family that came before him (one of his uncles had a big chin!)  It is fun to go out and see each day’s […]

Monday Mondays 7.6.15

I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July holiday!  We’ve gone to the same place to see fireworks for the past 10 years or so, and we thought we’d have to cancel this year because we’ve had nothing but RAIN for the last […]
