#Beauty4Balance: Day ?? Here I am. Now what?

“Wherever you are, there you are are.” Ever heard that twist? I think the original saying is “Wherever you go, there you are.” The change is small – the word “are” instead of the word “go.” But the difference that one word makes is significant. “Wherever you go, there you are” seems to be advising… Continue reading #Beauty4Balance: Day ??

#Beauty4Balance: Days 16-20. Happy Birthday To Me! 

I can bet I will never have a birthday quite like this one ever again. When I found out my friend’s bachelorette party was planned on my birthday – I had about 3 seconds where I felt sad. Couldn’t tell you why really – I guess my childhood of being an only child where I… Continue reading #Beauty4Balance: Days 16-20. Happy Birthday To Me!

Heading back to the land of the trolls today. For those of you who don’t know – trolls live below the bridge in Michigan’s Lower Peninsula.   At least thats what the Yoopers say.  And they are Yoopers because they live in the –  “U.P.” pronounced “YOU-P” aka “YOOP” and that leads to “Yoopers”.

#Beauty4Balance: Day 13. Laugh.  Post for 7.3.17.

Sometimes life plays jokes on us. Sometimes your husband loves to tease (lovingly I’m going to assume) your last #Beauty4Balance post about To Do Lists before vacation started. And as ridiculous as it is, and he is, you have a pretty good giggle about it. We all laugh. Because….well….because “poop” on a “To Do List” is… Continue reading #Beauty4Balance: Day 13.

#Beauty4Balance: Day 11. Big Mac.  Post for 7.1.17.

No.  Not the Burger.  This guy… The Mackinac Bridge. The spectacularly grand entrance-way into nature’s palace. Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Miles and miles and miles of pristine forest and breathtaking Great Lakes shoreline. The kind of quiet that sounds loud. The kind of slow that makes you forget about time. The kind of peace, calm and… Continue reading #Beauty4Balance: Day 11. Big Mac.  Post for 7.1.17.

#Beauty4Balance: Day 12. Lady Lake. Post for 7.2.17.

Lake Michigan is always impressive. Her skin looks mosaic with blues and greens.  Shifting patterns with the movement of her waves. Changing hues each time the clouds catch the sun as they chase her across the sky. This year she seems exceptionally beautiful. There is a creek just to the west of where I’m standing.… Continue reading #Beauty4Balance: Day 12. Lady Lake. Post for 7.2.17.

#Beauty4Balance: Day 10. ☑️ Complete To Do List.

Most days I don’t think I would survive without my “To-Do” lists.   Seriously. I can’t be trusted to wing it and get everything done. I can wing just about any meeting or presentation or unexpected Q&A at work- but not a productive back to the grind kind of work day.   And unless the… Continue reading #Beauty4Balance: Day 10. ☑️ Complete To Do List.
