St Patrick’s Day Decor

I have a secret. I LOVE St. Patrick’s Day. Okay. That’s not really a secret.  I also love themed holiday decorating. Since I’ve been snowed/iced in a lot lately, I got a little crafty. If it’s glitter… chances are, I want it. I’m in love with this pot of gold. He’s so cute! Do you […]

Why Run A Marathon?

There are many reasons that someone would torture themselves enough to run 26.2 miles without a gun to their head. And I honestly can’t tell you why I decided to finally delve in. I always said it was something I never had any interest in doing. I think many people assumed I had already run […]

Half Marathon #16… Magic City Half

On Sunday, I ran my 16th half marathon. Which is crazy to think about. I’ve run Magic City since it’s inaugural race when it was called the Ruben Studdard Run. This year the switched the course around and had it start and end at the new Regions Field where the Birmingham Barons play baseball. I […]

Guilt. The Unmentioned Grieving Emotion.

Following the days of Mom’s death, I took on the role as planner and caregiver. How was my step dad? Did he have enough food? Was he sleeping? How was my Granny dealing with it? What about my sister? And the girls? And John? I was just so numb to what had happened, that all […]

October 26th, 2014. An Unfair Reality.
