Empowering Myself

I stare at the stationary spin bike standing in front of me, silently mocking me. I take a deep breath in and slowly exhale before I straddle the seat.

I clip-in to each pedal, attaching myself to this piece of machinery, and brace myself for the mental and physical journey that lies ahead of me.

I turn the volume up on my headphones to full blast and close my eyes in meditation before I hit the play button.


My Ode to 2020

2020 has been a year to remember and one that most want to forget.

To say it has been a difficult one would be an understatement, at least for me.


The year started off nicely. I had just started dating a new amazing guy that I really liked. The kids were in school and happy enjoying time with their friends. My job was thriving, and I was looking forward to a great year.


Then about two months into the year, everything went downhill and quickly.

Unexpected Hero

I stared at the front door from behind the bars of my kennel, waiting to hear the click of the lock from the front door turning into place. Followed by the footsteps down the front porch onto the driveway, then the sound of the car door slamming shut.

A few seconds later, I heard the roar of the engine that sounded like music to my ears. I closed my eyes and listened to that sound fade away into the distance before I moved one single muscle.

When all was clear, I went back to work.

War Cake

If I had to choose my favorite fall treat, I would probably pick the classic Pumpkin Pie or anything involving pumpkin for that matter. But instead I decided to share my Pop Pop’s favorite holiday treat which is what he called War Cake also known as the “Poor Man’s Cake.”

His mother, my great-grandmother Viola, made this cake for him as a boy growing up during World War II. 


The Perfect Gift!

Finding the perfect gift can be daunting and can seem somewhat impossible at times.


The holiday season and giving gifts is all about family, friends and the people you love, at least it always has been for my kids and me.

As soon as school lets out for Christmas break, I pack the kids in the car, and we travel across the country, stopping in five different states dropping presents along the way to our loved ones!
