    Musings: FALLing into Gratitude

    Fall brings one of my favorite holidays. Door Mat // Hobby LobbyShoes & Dress // Old Navy Thanksgiving, of course.  But more than taking in all the beautiful fall colors lining the streets of Sacramento, are the small acts of generosity that recently reminded me to be grateful and thankful. So, very appropriate for this time of year. To think that a child could not try a sport or activity is foreign to me. My naivety comes from the privilege and hard work of my parents, whom never let this be a barrier for myself or Lil. It went unnoticed at the time, but my parents worked so hard to…

    #CoachPAndLotTieTheKnot – 10.16.16

I have so many our downstairs closet will barely…

    Thinking Out Loud – It’s Good to be Random

    I’m pretty sure this is the slowest week everrrr… Amanda at .RUNNING WITH SPOONS. So dramatic, I know! Last week flew by, so I guess this means this week goes at snail pace? My emotions are high, my Gmen made it possible for the effing Dodgers to clinch last night, so my pride and heart are a little hurt today! We can still clinch, our magic number is 1, but it won’t be as special… So, due to the first rain of fall and that loss last night, this post is going to be as random as random can be! Proud Non-Cooker // I am probably a little more prideful…
