For the last almost-three weeks I have been in Dallas, trying to keep track of the time as it flies by. The bulk of the first two weeks was spent enjoying my three nieces who were visiting from their home in Raleigh. We had so much fun, experiencing a Texas safari, swimming every afternoon at the pool, and boating on Lake Texoma. Those girls have some energy. I have a new appreciation for moms everywhere! And then last week was filled...

Tomorrow I am packing up my car and my dog and heading to Texas for three weeks. Three weeks. I haven’t spent that much time in Texas in the last ten years.

A couple of months ago, I was gathered with some very smart ladies at Cultivate Her and having a discussion about relationships. (No, not the juicy kind.) And my wise friend Eve Annuziato said something I keep coming back to. Eve said that when she turned 30 she sat down and created three lists: Very Important People, Very Draining People, and Very Negative People.

This summer has been A COMPLETE WHIRLWIND. I have been traveling non-stop and loving every minute of it. But I am worn out. And my life and my house are in disarray.  (Seriously can’t remember the last time I changed my sheets. I think it was sometime last week but I’m not quite sure.) With all this traveling, another thing that has been neglected is my blog. So this is a quick play-by-play with some of my favorite photos,...

Or maybe I just know what I want? Or maybe I have no idea what I want? Or maybe I am content with where I am right now? Or maybe I am seriously afraid of change or of just putting myself out there? But in my defense, I have no fear meeting new people, confessing my deep dark secrets on my blog, or sharing what I think about the latest loser on the Bachlorette on Twitter. It just doesn’t make sense. Oh, I just realized I...
