Yesterday the sun came out here in Austin for the first time in what seems like weeks! It’s just been rain, rain, rain, rain (go away!).
I pointed this out to my four year old, and she said, “But it’s still stormy Mom.”
“No it isn’t. Look, there’s the sun!”
“Yes it is, look Mom!”
And she was pointing at some storm clouds in the distance. Meanwhile here in our little hood, at least, all I could see was the beaming and much welcomed sun.Read More»
Well here we are! Every year, the arrival of October makes me perk up a little bit ’cause it’s the start of my favorite season–the “fall” and “winter” (here in TX) holidays!
This year for me the holiday season is bittersweet. In November we’ll be celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary, but it’ll be our last before we go our separate ways.

May your Friday be delicious!
Personally, I am in “fake it ’til you make it” mode, grinning and bearing it, because inside I’m not feeling strong at all.

The end of a relationship is not necessarily a bad thing, but the enormity of the change and the fear of the unknown are quite the one-two punch!
Virtual hugs to everyone, and thank you for staying with me!
I’ve mentioned a few times in my writing that my old life has, bit by bit, disintegrated. I’ve lost several loved ones and family members over the past few years, drifted apart from friends, and taken time off from my old career (four years now). The reason I write about happiness is not because I’m at expert at being happy, but because it is my biggest challenge. I hope that if I share what helps me though these challenges, I can help others get through theirs.
Now I’m going through divorce.Read More»
