I am thankful to be in my own home and with my hubby. I just spent the last three and a half days with my Sister, two nieces, two grandnieces, three dogs, and at least some of it in two hospitals, and an orthopedic facility. I drove up to Eas... Read more
Blow Out & Pick Me Up
Yesterday and today were totally off plan. The daughter of my best friend was married today and I was invited to the rehearsal dinner last night which was BBQ because the groom comes from Memphis and the bridal brunch this morning was at a love... Read more

Motivation and encouragement comes at the least expected time. I have been battling a pound up and down so close to a goal and milestone for weeks and this morning I saw it on the scale. Today, that number was under 130. I know that that it ... Read more
