As I have been lying here in bed with a roller coaster fever (currently on the low side) all weekend, it made me wonder what you all think. My husband - aka my hero - has done an incredible job taking care of me; from bringing me a new box of Kleenex, to making me food...

I can’t believe it. As of today I am one year smoke-free. 365 grueling days. 8,760 hours. And I did it.

Do I miss it? Of course I do. Did I gain weight? Pffft, yup…30 pounds if you’re curious. But, I’m currently in the process of working off those pounds and have 2...

I have always been a very independent person – I don’t like relying on anyone for anything. I have always been under the impression that the only person I can count on to never let me down is myself. Perhaps it is an only child trait. I never, ever wanted to be the kin...

As of right now, I realized that I have been in 36 out of the 50 states in the US. I didn't plan it or strive to hit so many, it just happened. Now, I have a goal to hit all 50 (I know, such a typical bucket list item). But, with my husband working for the airlines, it...

I can't believe it has been two years since I went to the Del Shannon Car Show in Coopersville for the first time! It was there that I met some of the most important people in my life today, including my best friend! Nothing will ever beat the first time that we went -...

During the summer I have half-day Fridays at work. It is great because my husband keeps those days off and we spend the day doing fun stuff together! It is the perfect ending to a work week every time.

Yesterday we took a mini road trip up to Milwaukee to check out the...

My friend and I were on the phone the other night and amidst our light-hearted discussions of time travel and such, we touched on the topic of the domino effect. He and I have talked about collaborating and writing a book together; between his brilliant mind and my wri...

The past 20 months have been a whirlwind of amazing experiences, mostly due to one of my best friends who lives in Australia. I met him two years ago because we were both Del Shannon fans and the same age, but little did I know that this random guy who messaged me on F...
