  • 2017-03-10 Back to Reality

    I’ve been thinking about this for days. Thinking and not writing. The road trip I took to Saint Louis feels like a million miles in the past now and it has been such a long week. When I got home, it was like switching gears so fast back to my regular world and so much […]

  • 2017-03-07 For My Birthday Girl

    Such a long full couple of days. So much I want to say. Too much. I’m walking the treadmill at the gym right now and my mind is racing and my heart is swollen with feelings. I’m trying to walk off the meal I had for dinner because I ate entirely too much. We were […]

  • 2017-03-05 Saint Louis – Day 4, The Trainwreck Cheeseburger.. 2.5

    When I was going through my difficult time last year, the phrase I used to describe it was “trainwrecked”. It worked in lots of different ways. I was “trainwrecked”. I was in “trainwreck” mode or sometimes I was actively in a state of “trainwrecking”. I guess you could say that was trying to make light […]

  • 2017-03-05 Saint Louis – Day 4, Part 1

    It’s really already the 6th but like the rest of the weekend, it’s the day after and I’m just now getting to write about it. My last day in Saint Louis was long and again, full of memorable moments. It was quite overcast and chilly which was very much a contrast from the sunny 71 […]

  • 2017-03-04 Saint Louis – Day 3

    Tennis Anyone? Yesterday the high was 71 and the sun was smiling down on Saint Louis all day. We only lounged for a little bit in the AM so as not to waste any part of the day and shortly after 9:30 we were off. The park we went to was Whitecliff park which is […]

  • 2017-03-03 Saint Louis – Day 2

    Today was once again full of feels. Different than the day before, but still satisfying. I had to work again, but balanced my time out well so that I could enjoy the bright sunshine in the early afternoon when it was at it’s peak. We walked the trail as it was, once again, too cold […]

  • 2017-03-03 Saint Louis – Day 1

    My last blog post was about the first half of my first day in Saint Louis yesterday but there is, of course, more to the story. Not only did I have a fantastic Cheeseburger but I also had fun the rest of the day just letting whatever happens happen… Late afternoon it was too cold […]

  • 2017-03-03 When the Universe Smiles at You.. 4

    There was no set plan for the day yesterday, but everything seemed to happen exactly as it was meant to… and it could not have worked out better. I worked most of the morning from a standing desk in Ademir’s basement and had a very intense set of calls. I faced issue after issue, and […]
