I, well we, are starting a new trend.
Yes, totally new. Never seen before… and when you start hearing the buzz, What’s this? Who came up with this? I just want you to know it started here. That’s right, right here, baby!
Okay, so hear me out.
It’s called SLO-DATING.
In the midst of a culture where everything is fast. Fast cars. Fast food. Fast internet. Fast girls. Fast marriages. Fast… we are slowing things down. I mean like really slowing things down.
To get a visual of how slow… check this out… and you’re welcome. Continue reading
So, I took my girls hiking yesterday. It was glorious… not just the view, but the fact that my two girls (10 and 13) passed four adults who had to stop and take a break because this was a killer incline.

I am inspired to write a piece on dating after reading a FB blip by a friend of mine….

So, I did something last night.
Something that was so hard for me to do. Something that even the person who received that something had nooooooo idea how hard it was for me to do.
Have you ever had moments like that? Where you were taking an action step- a huge leap for you- doing something different, doing something that you might not have had the strength to do even a few months earlier? You know what I am talking about here?
Well, I did that…. and I feel a little weird. I’m not going to lie to you… it just feels weird.
Weird…. unchartered territory. Continue reading
Lord, I feel that am I to keep writing, but I am not sure what I am to say…
Just start writing, dear one, and see what flows out. (Lord)
What pours out of me… Continue reading
I am pretty sure that I am part reptilian. I’m totally serious. I am.

Okay, maybe not fully turtle, but I do have one very specific trait that makes me think I might have some turtle in my blood.
When I’m struggling… when I dread moving through a situation- a holiday- I turtle. Continue reading
