A Day of Play and a Run To End Childhood Cancer

This is shaping up to be quite the week, a week that’ll undoubtedly be filled with smiles, tears, laughter, hugs and maybe a blister or a few cramps. As I write this I’m sitting the Westin hotel just off Beale Street in Memphis. I’m looking out at the morning sky […]

The Broken Air Conditioner and the Back To School Routine Derailer + GIVEAWAY!

This post is sponsored by Pure Protein. All thoughts and opinions are my own. I’ve said it before but it remains a fact worth repeating, a flag I’ll proudly keep on waving: I’m not one of those back to school cheerleaders. Don’t get me wrong; I dig the shopping, the […]

This Is Not A Cry For Help

Maybe it was a mild panic attack. That’s awfully scary to consider and to write down. I can’t know for sure, though. I’m not a regular around these parts, and this is not a cry for help with whatever happened and is still happening to me as I write this […]
