The F Word! (FAILURE!)
A couple of weeks ago I had a religious experience at Sephora. (Truth.) No, I did not see a heavenly angel next to the Smashbox "Full Exposure" mascara, even though I probably should have. (Because DANG, that stuff is awesome!) And no, I did not discover a ...

Problems!
I suppose it's safe to say that there are several unwritten "truths" regarding a looooooooong trip in a car. "Road Trip Truths," if you will! For example: Packing the trunk efficiently (for optimal use of space) is a lot like a game of Tetris. Truth. Ice-cr...

Don't Take Anything Personally
My oldest just finished fifth grade--a fact that sort of breaks this mama's heart. Photo credit: catcherintheryephotography I ask, "Where did the time go?," and, "How did we get here so quickly?," fairly often. It's amazing to me that she'll be twelve soon,...

Respectfully Aggressive
Earlier in the week I had the opportunity to speak to three hundred young girls, between the ages of twelve and seventeen, about the importance of being a light in the world. After my remarks I was approached by a lovely older woman. She proceeded to tell m...

Spilled Milk, Martin!
"Hello! Hello!," I screamed into the phone, like a shrill madwoman on the verge of homicide. "Um...yes, hello," a disembodied male voice said into my ear. He cleared his throat and continued: "As I said, this is Martin. How can I help you?" "Oh," I said, "y...

Time To Be Still
My Mama Jenneice is very wise. Her insight runs deep as the Mississippi (Is the Mississippi deep? I should have a fact checker!) and her vast life experiences have shown her many truths. I appreciate the perspective she has gained from being...well...old! (...

Pennies From Heaven!
It happened one July when, instead of frigid temperatures, the air was summertime-hot, and instead of a blanket of snow draping the mountains, they were brown and dry and parched from the sun. A dear friend of mine had sent me a picture on Facebook. The sce...

Stop It!
My curly-haired Irish saint (who is also known as Bridget, ha!) has recently favored a new phrase; some snappy vernacular to add to her already "saucy" vocabulary. www.catcherintheryephotography.com   That little turkey will not stop saying, "Stop it!" I tr...

Seeing Through the Mud
I once wiggled and climbed (and even waded) into the dark bowels of a cave in Southern China. Looking back, I'm not entirely certain our excursion was "OSHA approved." Which is just my attempt at cleverly saying "safe." Dudes. I don't think it was safe. For...
