Lady GaGa I woke up early this morning to find the beautiful white stuff falling from the sky. I made some coffee, snuggled up with the pup, and stared out the window enjoying the tranquility. As I do every morning, I grabbed my phone and started to browse the headlines. I came across this powerful video of Lady Gaga: It is everything. She explained this so eloquently. Evil is an invisible snake and we are feeding it in more ways than we know. I then decided to go back and watch her Superbowl half time performance because I didn’t really […]
When the reality sets in that you are about to hit a new decade, there are many emotions that you experience. I was certain that celebrating my big 4-0 was going to be on my terms. I wanted to play and feel like a child. I mentioned that I wanted to go to Universal Studios to experience the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and the hubs surprised me with a week’s vacation in Orlando. Not only did we get to celebrate my birthday but we also got to celebrate our 2nd anniversary! I hadn’t been to Disney since my Up […]
Boy am I late on this 🙂 Officially fall started on September 22nd but Winter does not officially start until December 21st so I’m in the “safe zone”. Better late than never right? As you may have read in my #EatPrayDrinkTour posts, this was an action packed summer. That doesn’t mean I didn’t have a chance to write down some of my new discoveries, things that helped make this summer so special! La Colombe Draft Latte. My love for coffee runs deep. I discovered Draft Latte’s at La Colombe some time ago but this summer I found the canned version […]
Winter is coming. Upon returning from my summer hiatus, I excitedly accepted a position in the beginning of September as a Client Strategist at WebDevStudios. That is correct, I am back to work folks. Taking the summer off to think about my future path was the best thing I could have done for myself. Exploring the country and doing some soul searching helped me accept the position with a clear mind and happy heart. Anytime you start a new position there is an adjustment period, especially at 40. Being the new person is awkward. It is the equivalent of being […]
I am completely pro-choice and very pro-Planned Parenthood. I believe that Americans should be allowed to bear arms but be licensed and educated on firearms. I think too many people are being killed unnecessarily. I think college should be free and/or affordable. I don’t believe we need a wall but a better screening process could be beneficial. I love having people from all cultures and backgrounds in the US. I believe that the environment needs more help than the economy. I also believe that finding alternative energy sources could help fix the economy and provide jobs. Marijuana should be legal, […]
A love letter to my College Friends. My introduction to college life did not go smoothly. I had a scholarship and a real taste of freedom. Unfortunately, they don’t always go together. Writing this blog was the hardest one for me. I loved so much about college yet have so few true memories from those days. However, I do know the people I met shaped me, inspired me, educated me, and I will love them forever.
