We are finally starting to see some sun and good weather here in Norway and things are starting to really look up. I started running again in earnest 8 days ago and am finally moving past that awful sore feeling where you don't know if you will... Read more
Rejection was so much fun until someone paid attention to me
Wednesday, March 19, 2014      17 comments

I mentioned in my last blog that I submitted some artwork to an online magazine for consideration and a few days ago I got rejected by them. This may sound crazy but I was so happy for myself and was going to write this whole blog about how pr... Read more

Friday, February 07, 2014      13 comments

Quintessa is far more straightforward when she choses a cake or a party theme than Liam. She knows what she wants and goes for it. To little Liam however, everything looks good! He hemmed and hawed and finally decided on a knight fairy tale t... Read more

I'm still all up in marzipan over here! The good thing is that I have not actually started baking yet so I am not in the danger zone of tempting treats...yet. I thought I would post a couple of pictures of where I am at so far: ... Read more

I made this loaf of bread on Saturday: It was not perfect. I knew darn well my flour was not the perfect 70F when I started and it was probably not milled from hard ... Read more
Walking...just me and my thoughts...and my underpants.
Thursday, January 09, 2014      26 comments

My butt was like lead today and my couch was like a magnet! (Possibly a bad analogy...Is lead even magnetic?) I had big plans for my day today. I was going to walk just for the sake of walking to get my exercise in and then some but I didn't ... Read more

No, I'm not moving there. Sweden, believe it or not is part of my new plan to help elevate my life. Sound a little cryptic and weird? Here is what it is: One of the things that has made me feel very unstable in the past is having a weak ... Read more

Probably if I am going to write a blog called "Moving Forward" I should probably take the pictures from Halloween off my Spark page huh? Maybe I will but one thing I am trying to do for myself is be nice to myself and not too demanding. I have... Read more
I don't want to know
Sunday, December 08, 2013      17 comments

I refuse to get on the scale right now. I don't want to know. Actually I do know...just not how much. My pants are fitting tighter. I can just tell I have gained weight but right now, when there is so much pressure on to get through the busi... Read more
