all about the process: exploring life + learning + creative curiosity

Two full weeks into 2016.  How are those resolutions coming along? I decided a few years ago that I was ditching the ‘r word’ (resolutions) and embracing ‘goals’ instead. Much more reasonable in my opinion. Semantics? Maybe. Blame it on middle age. Blame it on laziness. Whatever. I’m kind of a realist, I think. Or lazy. Either way….. I stumbled on to a post that …

A little late, but worth sharing – one of my favorite Facebook profiles, Power of Positivity…. Providing daily doses of happiness and good vibes. Recommend!  

  For my husband, the person I look forward to being stupid with as often as possible….  😉 Hope yours was an awesome Monday! Now, go be stupid with the one you love.  🙂

What a fun way to start the week!  Dr. Seuss, so wise, who knew??  Well, if you’ve ever read his books, then you knew, that’s who!    😉 Happy Monday!

  What a great weekend at the Ringling College of Art and Design – growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun! Hope yours was infused with some creativity, too.  🙂 Happy Monday!  

I have two sisters who constantly amaze me.  I loved them when we were kids, but I love them even more as I watch them with their own kids.  This weekend, our youngest sister, whom I refer to as Baby Sister, was once again challenged as her oldest son suffered a major accident on the …

It occurred to me as we drove home from a holiday weekend trip to the beach that I posted neither a Sunday Funny nor a Monday Motivation.  Slacker. I also realized that I thought about the upcoming weekend over the past few weeks, as possible posts rolled through my mind. Frankly, nothing felt quite right as I …
