Will you be my friend?

So pulling this one from my blog again.  My hubs is out of town and “quiet” writing time has been none exsistant lately with three kids needing my full attention.  I wanted to write about the vulnerability in friendship, something that I have faced a lot in my lifetime.  I remembered I wrote about it […]

Why Africa?

So maybe this isn’t exactly related to brave living, but I get asked the question alot, “Why do you love Africa so much?”  It’s one of those things that is very hard to explain, but a few years ago a came across a great article that summed my thoughts up on Botswana. I posted it […]


“ It’s not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives.  It’s what we do consistently.” Tony Robbins When I read the above quote a couple of weeks ago it caught in my throat and I read it again.  And again.  Then I sent it to my friend and said, “Read this! […]

Bravery in Loss

**This was a post I had to write and come back to a few times as it deeply effected me.  Sharing this part of my heart with you. Bonolo passed just before Christmas. ** I was just finishing up my morning cup of coffee when I could hear my husband talking on his cell phone. […]

Vulnerability in the form of a bathing suit

For as long as I can remember, I have hated bathing suits.  I’ve never had a “bathing suit body”.  I’ve never worn (nor do I desire to) a bikini.  I was the girl who cringed every time I found out that we were going to a water park for class trips. I would try on […]


I could feel it settling over me like a heavy blanket. I was grumpy and snappy at my kids and husband. I sent a quick text to my friend, “I feel grumpy today.” and yet I didn’t quite know why. I went about my morning setting up a baby shower for a friend of mine. […]

Where’s my part today?

So as I type, I am hearing the scrape, scrape, scrape of four men scraping down the insides of our swimming pool. We’re lucky to rent a house that has a nice sized swimming pool. We were unlucky enough to rent a house that had a swimming pool that had some issues with a new […]
