Giving, Receiving and the In Between

  I’m a terrible shopper. I get all excited to go browse favorite stores, usually don’t have much of a problem finding a few things I’d like to buy, but almost always end up talking myself out of buying anything at all. Usually it’s because I already have something at home that works perfectly well, […]

No Words, Just Love

#reverb12 Day 18: 1000 Words: There’s the old saying that a photo is worth 1,000 words.  Give us a photo with that impact that sums up some significant event of your 2012, or give us 1000 words about a pivotal moment in 2012. I only need one. Mine. This #Reverb12 prompt courtesy of Meredith. 

Everyday Inspiration

#reverb 12, Day 16: Who inspired you? I could talk about the 'famous' people I find inspirational. That would be easy. But today the words seem empty and unimportant, considering all that's happened over the weekend. Too much sadness, too much loss, too many bullets. All weekend long I've heard the phrase 'it takes a […]

Have Appetite, Will Travel: My Year in Food

#Reverb12, Day 15: What tingled your tastebuds? My taste buds traveled in 2012.   In DC I drooled over fried chicken and waffles, sweet and crunchy and familiar and unique.  I passed on the deep fried cheeseburger but indulged in creamy risotto and sinful french fries and sweet treats from a famous place. In Chicago […]

On Innocence and Anything But

  I can't. I've spent the better part of the day consumed by the television reports of the senseless violence that happened in one of the last places in our world we had considered–up until this morning–sacred and safe. I've spent the better part of the day alternating between tears and nausea, thinking of the […]

Pictures of Me

Reverb 13: Please post your favourite picture of yourself from 2012, self-portrait or otherwise! I've looked through every last one.  Every picture from 2012; the good, the bad, the ugly and the unrecognizable. And there's not one of me, just me, without a child or a boyfriend. That says something, right? Maybe that I snap the […]

My Year In Books

Reverb 9: What was the best book you read in 2012, and why? (And by "Why?" I mean: Why did you read it? And why was it your favourite? Although these answers could be one and the same…!) If you only knew how many books I have, just waiting to be read. They taunt me, really, […]

On Chocolate Covered Cherries, Cookie Swaps and Crying Jags

  Today's #Cultivate12 Prompt from Meredith: Foodie Friday — Cultivate Style: Food nourishes us. Some foods give us more enjoyment than others. Some foods leave us feeling less than ourselves. What foods nourished your soul and body this year? What food choices can you make in 2013 to cultivate more self-care?   I spent part of […]

One Step Forward, A Few Steps Back

  Combining two prompts for today. The first, from Meredith: Letting Go: What do you need to let go of to cultivate your best life in 2013? and the second, from Kat:  What will you take with you?    If you only knew how many times I've started this prompt today. I've written about everything […]

Lessons Learned

  Lesson: We may have started this year with the best of intentions, but plans may have gone awry. What lesson really jumped out at you this year? How can you cultivate that lesson going forward? Lessons? Yeah, I've had lessons. Haven't we all? I've been marveling with friends lately just how quickly life moves; […]
