Following a few conversations about our safety in and around Memphis, we opted for a Friday Adventure right here close by full of giggles and retail therapy! We got our fill at Wayback Burgers, and if you haven’t been there yet, run (and I mean, do not walk) and try it. Brady had the CheeeeesyContinue reading “Friday Adventures, September 9, 2022”

My hair is purple, right in the front. It’s been blonde, even red, but purple…it’s kind of my thing. It’s fun. I get compliments on it all the time. People ask me questions about it, too. Is it permanent? (Yes.) Do you do it yourself? (Heck no.) Does your husband like it? (Yes.) Is itContinue reading “Identity Crisis?”
Maine… and peace.
A few things occurred to me this morning, one of which was that I needed to tell you that our trip to Maine was as wonderful as expected and a much-needed chance to breathe (especially for Keith). For the first time in a long time, he wasn’t constantly on the phone guiding someone through repairingContinue reading “Maine… and peace.”
Something To Look Forward To
You know what we often need when we’re going through a season? Something to look forward to! Y’all. We love to travel, and a year ago, Keith and I decided to go to Maine. We had never been. It was nothing short of amazing, and we both fell in love. It was odd for usContinue reading “Something To Look Forward To”
Up at 7:30 am, I figured I could dread today and what all it might bring or get busy making peace for myself. So I made some comfort food. It smelled so good while it was baking. If you need a good oatmeal, the recipe is in the comments. I got it from a veganContinue reading “Oatmeal Recipe”
RIP to My Sanity
Here’s where the erosion of your sanity will get you… Our company’s vans died literally dead seemingly all at once (ummm, today), and we are now in a pickle. So I found two online, had them brought down from Murfreesboro, TN (which took some doing), and I’ve been scrambling to figure out how in theContinue reading “RIP to My Sanity”
Valley of the Shadow Sometimes
Y’all, I feel like I’m walking through that valley of the shadow. The good news is I know God is with me. The bad news is that my humanness sure pushes fear to the forefront and tries to crowd out my faith. I won’t let it, of course. I’m all faith all the time forContinue reading “Valley of the Shadow Sometimes”
In my effort to become a Recovering People Pleaser, I vowed to spend more time with my sweet Brady. She’s 14, and she’s awesome. We have had one heck of year, and she deserves every minute I can give her. And why shouldn’t I be giving her every possible minute I can? So I shuffledContinue reading “Friday Adventures”
It was July 22, 2015, when we found out Keith had colon cancer. The doctor called us on the phone after a routine colonoscopy. We were standing outside in the yard when I put the phone on speaker so we could both hear what he had to say. It was seventy-hundred degrees, and sweat drippedContinue reading “The Spot”
Life. Smacks. Peace.
Y’all ever get up and the morning and go about your business just to be smacked in the face with a big, fat truth?! Yeah. And the funny thing about that truth is that it was there all along. It isn’t new. It isn’t a surprise. The time for all things to come together, mixContinue reading “Life. Smacks. Peace.”
