Chocolate Cake & A New Mantra

Image

I have been spring cleaning my life A.K.A. organizing my world. That means that I have also been doing some serious brainstorming for this here blog. In the next few months I plan on implementing some really exciting things and getting this party started. Other than that, I think I am finally getting a foothold on our latest move to Texas. There has been so much tumultuous decision making going on year after year, it feels good to drop some roots and feel emotionally and spiritually steady. All of the bluebonnets and wildflowers may be helping ….

A brilliant friend of mine once said, “the grass is greener where you water it”.

And that, my friends, is my current mantra.
