Saying Thank You to True Heroes

Friday night over this last weekend my husband and I were invited by our friend to attend the Western Hunting and Conservation Expo special dinner event where a gentleman named John Wayne Walding, who had spent 12 years in the U.S. Army, seven of which were spent in the 3rd Special Forces Group, would be […]

Simpler Times. Maybe we should having them a little more often.

My mother sent me a copy of a posting put on Facebook by a gal named Christy Dickson that my sister and I were friends with back in the elementary and junior high years growing up in Washington. Here is her post: “I grew up in a little town…On Sundays you didn’t ask if you […]

A Week I Will Never Forget: Attending the Inauguration of the 45th President

I experienced so many incredible things over the last week that when I sit down to try and share them in this blog it is a little overwhelming to figure out how to fit it all in, but I will do my best to share the highlights and include a few fun photos for you…. […]

Doing our part to be deserving of their sacrifice

November 11th we honor people who sacrificed of themselves so that a Nation could protect the sacred gift of freedom for its citizens. I stand in awe of the amazing Veterans who so selflessly served, as well as those who continue to serve, for such an important cause. These veterans willingly chose to leave their homes and […]

Land of the Free and Home of the Brave (Happy Fourth of July!)

In 1776, after the Second Continental Congress adopted the Lee Resolution that “these United Colonies are, and of right ought to be, free and independent,” John Adams wrote the following to his wife: “You will think me transported with enthusiasm, but I am not. I am well aware of the toil and blood and treasure […]

You Can Love Donald Trump Or You Can Hate Donald Trump, But You Can’t Deny Donald Trump is Making Politics Interesting Again (Forbes Article)

You can love Donald Trump, or you can hate Donald Trump, but what you cannot deny is the fact that Donald Trump has managed to make politics interesting again. I normally cannot stand watching Presidential debates because I always end up feeling I’ve just heard a bunch of politically correct answers that use a whole […]

“I Am An American”

This weekend we head into the Fourth of July holiday here in the United States and as we do I want to proudly and gratefully say that I am an American. Too often I take for granted how #blessed I am to be an American, to live in a country that stands for freedom of […]

Happy Fourth of July Everyone!

Since it is a holiday I don’t normally post my blog but I wanted to take just a few minutes to wish everyone a fabulous Fourth of July holiday with their loved ones and friends, and I wanted to personally express my thanks to all of those men and women who serve our country today […]

Episode One of American Gnuity Wraps

Friday and Saturday of last week were two incredibly long days of filming on the set of American Gnuity, the new reality television series which picks amazing entrepreneurial companies from across the country to be mentored until the top 20 teams are narrowed down to the top three by all of America who can support […]

The Gift of Freedom

“Freedom means that no one can stop you from doing what is right, or persuade you to do what is wrong.”  – Dadi Janki What a great quote!  Love, love, love that quote.  Because I believe that with all my heart.  We may not all have freedom in our circumstances, but we all have freedom […]

In Memory of Those Who Have Given All

This weekend we celebrate Memorial Day in the U.S.  It’s the day we remember those men and women who died serving in the military.   It’s also become a day to honor all of those who were near and dear to our hearts that have passed on.   People place flowers on graves and flags on graves […]

“Death and Taxes May be Certain, But We Don’t Have to Die Every Year.”

It is that time of year again.   That miserable experience of trying to pull together your financial information so you can figure out how much you are going to owe in taxes for this year and hustling to determine what items you need to pay prior to the end of 2012 in order to take […]

Dealing with Disappointment

“Don’t let today’s disappointments cast a shadow on tomorrow’s dreams.” ~Unknown I have to say that I was disappointed to see the Presidential race end with four more years of the same Presidential leadership we have had as it causes me HUGE concerns for the economic future of our country.  I struggle to see how […]

The Future CEO of America

As many of you probably did as well, I have just finished watching the Presidential debate on television.   Normally I don’t voice my feelings about politics (so this is likely a one timer from me on this subject as I don’t really enjoy political debating), but tonight I feel compelled to express my thoughts on […]

Following September 11th

I know that many people thought a lot today about the tragedy that befell our country 11 years ago.  I know that I did.  Just the thought of how horrible that day was makes my heart ache to remember.   But my message today isn’t to recall what happened on that horrendous day, but rather I […]

The best in the world

As you probably realize, the Olympics opening ceremony is tonight! The thing that I love about the Olympics is that fact that those people participating in the events are the absolute best of the best that have dedicated themselves 100% to exceling in their talent. That is one of the most impressive things in the […]
