The Boys who Hold my Heart

While I love having a daughter, I also love my two boys. I have learned in having a girl and two boys that each holds a very special place in my heart. Many have said that they couldn’t imagine having more than their one child because they wouldn’t know how to love anyone else the way they love their only child. I swore to them that it happens, your heart is big enough for every single child and each child will be loved fully but in a little unique way that fits who they are as a little person. With […]

American Heart Month and Quaker #QuakerHearts #spon

During American Heart Month, Quaker is teaming up with heart-throb chef Fabio Viviani to energize and inspire women to take action for their hearts.  I must admit I am always on my kids about how staying fit, trying to eat healthy and making good decisions in your lifestyle is what can help keep your heart healthy.

If I work out an action plan with my thoughts then reality is real, a heart felt decision that one must make and move forward with. Today I ramble to you, because my mind was so overwhelmed the past two nights that my shoulders are tense and everyone who is close to me […]

Energy Up Energy Down

It’s normal for a person to feel high energy then low energy, I am a firm believer that it’s about how you think you feel in addition to diet and exercise. I haven’t ever felt such highs and lows in a long time. I was at my best a few weeks ago ready to move forward and could have run a mile (well maybe if I quit smoking I could run a mile), but you know what I mean. Then it hit me, a really low energy spell. It came with a sickness for a couple weeks in a row […]
