    No Sorrow

    It’s the 50th anniversary of Alvin Ailey’s Revelations and once again tonight the DD and I will be at city center watching a performance together. She’s so excited and so am I. Also once again before the show she’ll be taking a dance class at Ailey and learning Revelations which is a huge treat for her. It should be a fab night and a great start to the holiday season.  Wishing you a wonderful sorrow-less weekend.

    Keep It Simple

    Right now I can’t get this song out of my head. I guess I’m longing for either a simpler life or to dye my hair. I’m not sure…

    No Doubt – Simple Kind Of Life

    But I don’t see either happening at least not this month. Are you longing for something a little different in your life at times? Maybe it’s time for a slow down. Think you can find the time? Tell me how.



    P.S. Thanks to all my blog friends that followed me over @Loft Romance. If you haven’t been in a while I post a new topic every day so please stop by and join in the FB discussion here or follow on twitter @loftromance here. Thanks!

    Did You Hear It?

    So I was doing my DD dance run and this came on the radio and I couldn’t stop smiling. Why did we stop being so carefree that we no longer wear tutus over leggins? I’m calling for a comeback. Turn it up ya’ll it’s Friday!

    Pep Up

    What’s Jack up to? Jack is meandering around following me slowly around the house giving me the sweet puppy eyes as I write this. I think he can tell my mood.

    See with the change in weather I can’t tell if I’m having severe allergies or I’m in fact getting a terrible head cold. Either way I’m feeling kinda yech with a side of blah and need a good dose of pep. Maybe Toni can help…

    Hope you have a great day.

    A Festivus for The Rest Of Us

    What’s Jack up to? Though I wanted to sleep in this Saturday but Jack was having none of it and had the DH and I up pretty early pushing his strong little body against one side of the bed, shake, shake,  then, scratch, tap, tap, running to the other side to push some more until we gave in and he got to go out. Once again we know who’s in charge here. LOL.

    Thanks to all of you who read my work, commented and voted for me in the Mills & Boon New Voices contest. It’s so hard to step out and be judged. If you haven’t had a chance to read and be all judgy there is still time. Grab a cup of tea and head on over here now. Thanks.


    On a lighter note…finally a rally I can get behind well just about any of us can that is if I can get off the couch. I love you Jon Stewart.

    New Soul

    Though we know this song from being a Mac and I’m all PC I still love it and the video. I think we all have the opportunity to be New Souls inside.

    Happy Friday!





    If you’ve never been I invite you to my other home on the web: Becoming True Me. Just click on the feet over to your right.  Yeah they’re my feet don’t laugh. Part of my journey was getting over my fugly feet and embracing them. So no laughing. Ok you can, I do. LOL.

    Super Duper Cute

    What’s Jack up to? Well now that school is back in session it’s back to me and Jack for the better part of the day. So we are bonding once again. Here is is trying to get me off Twitter and back on track with my writing. My own writing coach. Ok ,Jack, I get your point and I’m getting right back to work.


    With school back in so is my afternoon drive time with the DD doing the dance thing. And that means the fight over the car radio is back on. Every once in a while we can agree on a cute little diddy. Enjoy.
