Sometimes it’s the journey that teaches you a lot about your destination.  ~Canadian entertainer, Drake Happy Sunday, Journeyer! This has been such an interesting week, and for the most part it’s all about exploration and travels for my family.

Happy Sunday, Journeyer, Warren, Big Guy, and I spent most of last Sunday in a parking lot at an inlet’s edge, trying to fix a broken boot on our boat. We’d made plans for a Memorial Day outing with Beauty and her beau, and the boat had been the day’s major attraction. Upon discovering that the repair had ruptured during the …

Happy Sunday-Monday, Journeyer, Wow…have you ever thought about how much can occur in the blink of an eye that is one week? This past week is definitely a blur. Monday and Tuesday…work and more work drama. Wednesday morning I woke with a chest cold. Despite a nagging cough I made it through the day, only to spend Thursday and Friday …

On Falling from Grace and Forgiveness

Happy Sunday, Journeyer and for those who honor the holiday, Happy Easter! As I thought about this week’s post and the upcoming Christian celebration, I thought about how Easter reminds me of all of us, people from all religions and those of non religion. This morning marks the fifteenth year my family has participated in an Easter Dawn pageant, a reenactment of …

Last night I attended the rehearsal for this weekend’s Clarity Connects inspirational event. One of the speakers talked about finding the magic in every day life.

This salon is on the second floor of an old building that was originally a local theater! The hardwood floors and the stage are still intact! At the top of the stairs next to the over-sized, barn-style doors is this …

Annah Elizabeth Confidence, Family, Mental Health, Parenting, Relationships, Spirituality 2 Comments

Earlier this week I read Amazing Women Rock’s social media share about Jaden Smith modeling Louis Vuitton Womenswear. Many of the comments were disheartening and some were downright disturbing. The one that made the most sense to me came from AMR: “Plenty of women have dressed in men’s clothing over the decades…” The truth is that it has been going …

Memories, Mandalas, and a Medium

Annah Elizabeth Happy Happens ™, Mental Health, Spirituality 2 Comments

Happy Sunday, Journeyer! Last week sort of passed by in a blip! Warren returned from a six day trip around midnight on Wednesday and then I had to have him back at the airport at the crack of dawn on Friday. Though his absence means I am able to devote my attentions strictly to whatever projects I need to work …
