Both my husband and I have worn eyeglasses since we were children. As a result, Aaron had virtually no chance of escaping his wearing glasses too. Our little man has worn his specs for a couple of years now. He’s been complaining that things aren’t as clear, so it was off to get an exam […]
A Holly Jolly Apology
Who apologizes with something labeled “Holly Jolly” or with a Reindeer and a Cookie???????
I began this year with the intention of getting my “sparkle” back. I think we’ve all gone through trying times, some much worse than others. Mine’s lasted longer than I would have liked, but I was intent on designing a life that I wanted – not one that I was going to settle on or […]
A “Smack My Head” Moment with the Sinclair Method…
SMDH! Seriously, if there ever was a need for that “smack my head emoji” it was for me. Today. Soooooo, here’s the story……..Stay tuned, it has a happy, funny ending! As with many, I take meds for depression — nothing serious, but I’ve gone with and without and definitely prefer my mood and how […]

Note: I may earn money from the companies mentioned in this post. It doesn’t affect my review, but lets me buy a new lipstick once in awhile and not feel guilty about the costs of my blog. xoxo Blogging Boot Camp? If you would have suggested that to me a year ago I would have […]
5 Best Lawyer Movies, from a “recovering” lawyer’s point of view
As a recovering lawyer (I don’t ever think I’ll be a “former” lawyer — it’s too hard to shake over 25 years of training and practice, after all, they do train lawyers to think differently), I love a good lawyer flick. Most times I’m yelling at the TV about “that’s not the way this works!” […]
Zenni.com-the eyeglass store with gorgeous glasses at inexpensive prices
Gorgeous glasses at inexpensive prices are not a fantasy! Zenni.com is the candy store for glasses wearers. Gorgeous frames, everything from geek to chic! I’ve finally crossed the bridge from “standard” glasses wearer to needing progressive lenses. My arms simply aren’t long enough to hold the small print far enough away. Thankfully, I don’t have […]
