Forgive, Forget, And Leave It Alone

“When we believe or say we have been offended, we usually mean we feel insulted, mistreated, snubbed, or disrespected. And certainly clumsy, embarrassing, unprincipled, and mean-spirited things do occur in our interactions with other people that would allow us to take offense. However, it ultimately is impossible for another person to offend you or to

Channel Your Inner Child And Dream Again

(Guest blog post written by Ashley Anderson Hill) :  The Magic of Disney Over the holiday weekend my husband and I went with a couple of friends to the one… the only… (drumroll please) …DISNEYLAND! 🙂 #happiestplaceonearth Upon arrival, and after what felt like a 5,000-hour road trip, we decided to hit up the magical street

An Evening With Josh Groban and Idina Menzel

Tonight I was able to attend Josh Groban’s AMAZING concert which had Idina Menzel as his opening performer. Talk about two amazing performers. It was seriously an amazing concert!

“You’ll Shoot Your Eye Out, Kid.”

Awww yes…we have entered the fabulous month of December and the fabulous season of Christmas (and Hanukkah, Ramadan , Kwanza, and all the other fabulous December holidays being celebrated).

Coming to a fork at the end of one road

Don’t Look Back, You’re Not Going That Way!

We are about to begin a New Year, so as we do I suggest that we take this opportunity to let the past go! Let old hurts go, let past grudges go, let past failures go, let past disappointments go…LET IT GO! If we want our New Year to be amazing and incredible, which I

In The Famous Words From Disney’s Frozen “Let it Go”

There are just three short days until we celebrate Christmas! This weekend was fantastic. Our kids came home from college and we went to an awesome Christmas concert by pianist Kurt Bestor.

Throwback Thursday – Forgive and Let Go

For some reason this week I thought it would be fun to go back in time to this very day two years ago to see what was on my mind back then when I wrote my blog that day.   When I finished reading my post from that day it hit me how important the

A Good Life

“A good life is when you assume nothing, do more, need less, smile often, dream big, laugh a lot, and realize how blessed you are.”  – Anonymous Is it really that simple to have a good life?  In many ways I actually believe it is.  I really think that so much of our level of
