Lost Creek Falls Summer is coming to a close. Not sure how I feel about that. I decided to take the morning off to hit Lost Creek Falls (a must-see waterfall in Bayfield County) and do some book editing at one of my favorite coffee shops in the planet – Cornucopia Coffee and Sweet Shoppe.…… Continue reading Everyday Empathy
A few months back I called my shot. I shared my dream of submitting a book proposal to Hay House publishing company in hopes I’d be selected for a book deal. This past week I learned I didn’t get it. I’m not going to sugar coat this. I’m bummed. I believe my stories about loss…… Continue reading Rejection
Today I’m Nine
Jake from Moon Lake hijacking mom’s blog once again. I’ve successfully navigated another trip around the sun. This past year was packed with a lot of adventures, but what else would you expect? My third grade teacher Miss Janigo rocked the house. She kept me in-line and will always be known as the teacher who…… Continue reading Today I’m Nine
I recently listened to an interview with Mel Robbins and Jenna Kutcher. Decent interview, in-part because Jenna Kutcher is someone who took a leap of faith and monetized that. As someone trying to continuously align my passion and how I spend my time (and make money), that’s pretty cool. Anyways, towards the end of the…… Continue reading Fat Minutes
Today marks the second half of 2022, a natural time to check-in on how the year is going. I kicked off the year focused on the word enough. In a world that seems to be on the constant quest for more (myself included), I wanted to remind myself that in this very moment I am…… Continue reading Alignment Check
Running Regrets and Blessings?
This month my latest post from Another Mother Runner went live. The post talked about my running regrets and was sparked by Daniel Pink’s newest book The Power of Regret. In the book, Pink says, “If we only know what we truly regret, we know what we truly value. Regret—that maddening, perplexing, and undeniably real…… Continue reading Running Regrets and Blessings?
Frequency Illusion or Fate
I’m currently sitting at a coffee shop in crunch mode. A few weeks ago I wrapped up the first draft of a book more than 25-years in the making. As I typed the closing words of the final chapter, I felt something was missing. That perhaps my book was an illusion or misrepresentation of grief.…… Continue reading Frequency Illusion or Fate
Podcast Fun and Writing Deadlines
Things are getting real. This week, a podcast I recorded last month with Coach Kiah came out. I first discovered Kiah by accident on Instagram. Since then, I’ve been a huge fan not only of watching her incredible weight loss journey but also her zest for life and all things farming. Yep. She comes from…… Continue reading Podcast Fun and Writing Deadlines
This is 44. This is the first birthday I feel legitimately old. As in, aging. Don’t roll your eyes at me and tell me I’m young. I know I’m only 44 and things are bound to get worse but these past few weeks, a series of events have reminded me that I am no longer…… Continue reading Birthday Magic
Small Changes, Big Results
My first blog post for Another Mother Runner came out this month. It highlighted why New Year’s resolutions don’t work in my world but how taking time out to set your intention for the year or season you are in is a valid exercise regardless of what month the calendar says. This year, I have…… Continue reading Small Changes, Big Results
