You may or may not know that my husband and daughter have been raising and cultivating bees in our backyard. It was my husband’s dream to have bees, and it has been the best experience. We have all learned so much. Here’s the most recent update… 🐝🐝🐝 Bad news and good news for the hives…Continue reading “Bee Hive Update”

Friday Adventures, September 9, 2022

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”

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.”

Things I Learned Today / August 8, 2022

I learned today (my favorite thing I learned today!) is that teenagers are listening. When they trust you, they really do listen. They take your advice, your warnings, your words all to heart. I AM leaving a legacy, even when studio life feels burdensome. I really am. I am absolutely living the dream. (Thank you,Continue reading “Things I Learned Today / August 8, 2022”

Bad Blogger, Cool Trip

I was a terrible blogger last week at the dance conference. If we weren’t in a seminar, we were moving between ball rooms or trying to find something to eat and get back. We had a tremendous week, though! Here are some highlights… I learned so much more about running my business, being a betterContinue reading “Bad Blogger, Cool Trip”

Can’t Blame Myself

I’m the poster child for thinking of ways to blame myself when something “goes wrong” with my kids…if they acted irresponsibly, after they said something disrespectful, or best yet, when they got a mental health diagnosis. After the discovery of clinical OCD, general anxiety disorder, a math disorder, and ADHD in my daughter, I didContinue reading “Can’t Blame Myself”

Survival Mode

I am often inspired by posts made by my friends, and this one… what a thought! I think many of us are in this mode right now. We’ve been in survival mode. Keeping things running the best can, constantly trying to stay on top of tasks, always playing catch up, working to get enough rest,Continue reading “Survival Mode”

Things I’ve Learned / Wednesday, December 22, 2021

Yesterday did not turn out how I thought it would when I woke up in the morning and planned my day…but in a GREAT way! After I picked up Brady from horse, Keith had a couple of surprise places for us to go. He took off work, met us, and off we went. First stopContinue reading “Things I’ve Learned / Wednesday, December 22, 2021”

Sorry I’m Late…

“Sorry I’m late. I didn’t want to come.” Have y’all seen that? It’s how I’ve been feeling about TILTs and posting until I can get this week behind me. Whew! I bought myself this book to start next week, but I couldn’t wait. I’m about 15 pages in, and there are so many gems, IContinue reading “Sorry I’m Late…”

It’s more than just coffee!

When I come into the kitchen in the morning, my coffee is already made. Keith fixes up the pot while he makes his espresso in his machine. Although sort of a tiny thing, it feels peaceful. I feel loved. The day to come may be filled with absolute madness, but in that moment, all isContinue reading “It’s more than just coffee!”
