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...

I have noticed the strangest thing. The more “free” time I have, the harder it is for me to get things done. Since I left my job at Thomas Nelson three weeks ago, I have felt more behind than ever.

Sometimes I am just plain GROUCHY. It is NOT PRETTY, but it is TRUE and REAL. Yes, I know. I don’t really have ANYTHING to be grouchy about. All my fundamental needs are being met. I have a wonderful job, a loving family, and this fantastic group of friends. I belong to an incredible church. And I live in a country where I am allowed to dream of possibilities and work to make them a reality. I am set. Life is good. But that...

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,...
