Two days ago marked six months since Hurricane Sandy plowed through our area. I simply cannot shake the thought of it this week. Maybe because it’s getting media coverage again. Or maybe it’s just because it’s still that bad. This is one of the photos that has stuck with me since that day. It was [...]
It has been six months to the day since Hurricane Sandy swept through this area, devastating my community. The area is still so damaged. It will take a long time to recover from the bruises and the beating that we took. We will never be the same. I took the photos in this slideshow myself [...]
Almost wordless. One word – fantasticallyawesomeandamazing! The rest of the words are all over in my Something Beautiful album review. Well maybe a few more words. I haven’t stopped listening to it in a week. It is turning into one of my favorite albums EVER. I love it so much I named it George. Just kidding. [...]
Today is the 4 year anniversary of Lap band surgery. This is what I looked like in 2008. I don’t even have the words. It’s been a hell of a journey – what with lung surgery and all – but I’d do it again. I’m 8 pounds short of the goal I will accept – [...]

World Down Syndrome Day is recognized on this day because being the twenty-first day of the [...]

The early eighties were a big time in my life. They were a part of my life during which I was trying to figure out who I was and who I wanted to be. I was in high school, which I graduated in 1982. At the time, some of the clothing trends were important to [...]
Priorities. We all have them. And for many (if not most) people, priorities change over the course of their lives. When I was 17 years old, my priorities were very different then what my priorities are now. My top priority at the time was love. I was in love with the idea of being in [...]
I saw this plumber’s van at a traffic light and it just made me chuckle. Not sure if it was the catch phrase or the little turd guy next to it. Or both. Thanks for stopping by! If you have a picture up for Wordless Wednesday, leave your link below! Then head on over to [...]
