The Journey Begins

It's just over 48 hours since Curt left en route to Nepal. It was dinner time on Sunday for me, Tuesday morning for him. He messaged today noting that he lost a day somewhere. The messages from him started coming in with plenty of updates filled with lots of excitement, compassion and enthusiasm. I'm going... Continue Reading →

My Boss My Friend

  It seems like just the other day that I came to your office and interviewed for a "caller" position. The truth is that nearly 8 years have passed since then. Your job posting came to my ears through a friend, even though the job didn't sound very glamorous it sounded like the most bountiful... Continue Reading →

Time Gone By

It's just before 7 pm on a Tuesday night as I sit patiently awaiting my niece's name to be called so she can walk the stage in recognition of  successfully completing middle school to move onto high school. A sideshow projected the images of 8th graders to show how they progressed through the school year.... Continue Reading →

A Night at The Moxy

I spent the night in Phoenix last night to attend an event at the Wells Fargo Arena at Arizona State University. I stayed at a boutique type hotel that is part of the Marriott hotel chain called The Moxy. The Moxy is decorated in a retro style with lots of modern flair. I've really been... Continue Reading →

I’m So Fly I Neverland

I admit that there are times when I'm a Disnerd and this weekend I was a Disnerd! Upon entering Disneyland anyone who walks under the bridge and reads the plaque "HERE YOU LEAVE TODAY AND ENTER THE WORLD OF YESTERDAY, TOMORROW AND FANTASY" and doesn't feel like a kid again once stepping foot on Main...

Easter in Disneyland

The crowds at times were plenty but not unbearable. Don't get me wrong there were plenty of people visiting. On top of the regular theme park visitors there were an equal amount of people visiting for Disney's Food and Wine Festival as well as the Disney Easter Egg Hunt Extravaganza. My point is there were... Continue Reading →

Mount San Jacinto

Another road trip to sunny California filled with great music, miles of asphalt and this time not so many of the usual junk food snacks because of a low carb diet I'm on. I swapped the Flaming Hot Cheetos for plain almonds and any soft drink for water and it wasn't so bad. About halfway... Continue Reading →

When Life Was Easier

I remember to this day a time when my parents forgot about me. I believe I was in the 3rd or 4th grade so probably 8 or 9 years old. I had decided that I wanted to be part of student council. Student council serves to engage students about learning about democracy. I chose to... Continue Reading →

The Women Of Black Panther

I rarely do this but I'm going to nerd out a bit over Black Panther. Typically I'm not a Marvel or DC fan because (with exception of Deadpool, Thor and Guardians) I feel there are so many movies, characters and plots going on that I tend to get overwhelmed with the useless (so sorry) information....

Say CHEESE!

The chaos ensued on my drive into work via a group text message frenzy then the chaos carried over into my office. Marissa, I didn't have a black sport coat so I wore navy. Do you think he'll mind? Me: Nah, it's fine. It'll look black in the picture. (I'm always the optimist) A TIE!... Continue Reading →

Houston, We Have A Problem

It's after hours and I'm still at work staring at the left screen of dual monitors. Instead of reviewing a purchase contract I'm thinking of what to write. I forgot we each had "homework" that is due tomorrow. Our homework is to write a mission statement. I spent the afternoon going through my to-do list... Continue Reading →

The Last Frontier Recap

Tuesday morning and back to work. As I entered the office reception area I removed my sunglasses from my jacketless body. It was 47 degrees farenheit on my way in . The receptionist greeted me with a big smile and said "Girl, that was a long way to travel for just a long weekend!". I... Continue Reading →

Alaska iMovie

I made it home this afternoon just before 3  p.m. I had been traveling home from Anchorage, Alaska since 11:55 p.m. the night before. I had to drive the last 2 hours home and that was the hardest part as fatigue started to set in. I wanted to post something today so instead of using... Continue Reading →

Mile High City

I took the 6 am flight and arrived in Denver just after 8:30 am. I'm not even in Alaska yet and I could see my breath in the jet bridge as I made my way into the airport. The cold wasn't too bad. I'm thinking that I can do this. I actually did not sleep... Continue Reading →

Making Music

I really like the people I work with. We're an interesting bunch of characters with various talents whom together are invincible. One July day Ben and I started writing a poem on the whiteboard in my office. We took turns adding lines to it all of which related to work. We then came up with... Continue Reading →

Time…

Will tell how I'll survive the cold weather. I'm very gung-ho at the moment as I type this from my warm bedroom with the ceiling fan oscillating above on medium speed. I wore a short-sleeved dress, tights and ankle boots to work today with no need for a jacket. At the intersection of Skyline/Hacienda del... Continue Reading →

Flamingo & Las Vegas Blvd

The Strip an adult playground in the middle of the Mohave Desert. As I stand on a pedestrian bridge and watch the cars whiz by I can't help but wonder who the passengers in the cars are. I wonder if the customers shopping inside of Fendi and Gucci are purchasing their goods with their winnings. A few... Continue Reading →

Train Jumper Roo

Benefits Of Learning An Instrument

I read that children aren't the only ones who can reap the benefits of learning an instrument. Adults can also gain tremendously from playing a musical instrument. Music has been shown to reduce stress, increase productivity, develop creativity and build confidence. I bought myself a guitar about a month ago because I was determined to... Continue Reading →

Lost For A Moment

The sound of my high heels greeting the pavement below with each hurried step slowed as I looked up to see a moment of romanticism and wander in a city filled with orderly chaos. A sea of people poured out of the late show of "O", I too was one amongst the masses. Surrounded by... Continue Reading →

Goodbye 2017

I'm writing my final blog post just a few minutes before midnight which brings with it a dawn of a new year. I welcome 2018 with a smile and open arms. 2017 was a year full of internal struggles and challenges that at one point caused me to believe that 2017 would be the worse... Continue Reading →
