The Ultimate Coffee Date 2016 #6

Good morning and hello to a new month!  So here we are again, the first Saturday of the month and we are meeting for coffee.  I am so happy to be joining my co-hosts Deborah and Coco and I am so looking forward to catching up.  Let’s go with this first … I have taken a very much too long break from blogging as I have been taking time just living each day being “un-plugged” from the keyboard.  I have had many ideas in my mind about what I have wanted to write about and share with all you, however I just needed to get myself into the right frame of mind.  Blogging is not easy {I am no professional} when I do write, I want to be as authentic as possible and hopefully have you connect with me and really feel what I am sharing.  Okay, lets chat and…  Read More…

The Ultimate Coffee Date 2016 #3

Good morning and happy Saturday.  It’s March already, and as you can tell by the lack of posts, my blogging had taken a back seat recently as I have been adjusting to life lately.  I am here today though to join all of you for coffee. While having coffee today, I will share with you that it has taken me longer than I thought to adjust to having our oldest son gone.  Since leaving for the Army Rangers, my entire world has been changed and if I were to be totally honest, I just checked out.  I feel as if I would be discrediting myself if I didn’t let you know that I just have had days where I didn’t have the desire to get out or really get up out of bed.  I would just go through the motions of the tasks I knew needing tending like getting the…  Read More…

Setting Goals 2016

The end of the year has me thinking so many things.  I swear if I don’t stop and just take a breath, my head will spin off.  I know we tend to gather up all the odds and ends by end of the year and create our lists of everything we want to do, complete, accomplish and goal for the new year coming.  I am so guilty of this, however I want to put the brakes on and stop. I want to take many minutes a good day to be quiet and still with my mind.  I want to soak in the past year and remember.  I want to sit and listen to the Christmas music playing on the Pandora station in the house.  I want to sit and finish that cup of tea quietly.  I want to lay on the couch at night and stare at the tree while…  Read More…

How on earth can it be November already?  I know this is cliche, but as I get older the time really does go by faster.  I really notice it with the kids.  They are growing up and I have been finding myself wanting to turn the clock back.  I have digressed, let me get back to the start … Happy Saturday and welcome to another #UltimateCoffeeDate with myself and co-hosts Deborah and Coco.  I love stopping each month and taking a long weekend to go over your links and comments.  It is a nice way to slow down and re-group, re-connect or connect with new bloggers. ♥ If we were having coffee, I would chat on  about how my kids are growing too fast.  I know, they have to and I am so super proud of all of them.  I just want to stop and slow down.  Is it because…  Read More…
