Things to Be Grateful For When It’s Just Really Hard to Be Grateful

It is so hard to find the good anymore, isn't it? Even I, the Universe whisperer as of late, have days where I want to squirt the entire Hershey syrup bottle into my mouth and call it a damn day. So I came up with this list. Knowing that I won't be sitting at a… Continue reading Things to Be Grateful For When It’s Just Really Hard to Be Grateful


Nobody Puts Gravy in a Corner- I Didn’t Make That Up

A Grace Full Life

I can’t believe this was last November. This feels like FIVE years ago. The comments alone were fun to read to see what some of us were doing last year so don’t look at this reblog as depressing. Look at it as hopeful for what is in store for next year because next year will be better.

I needed to add “I didn’t make that up” to the title because nobody puts gravy in a corner is pretty funny but it’s not something I came up with. It’s a play on a Dirty Dancing line and no, I won’t elaborate because if you’ve never watched Dirty Dancing, I don’t know that you can read my blog anymore.

I did however google “nobody puts gravy in a corner” to see if it was copyrighted but it’s not. It is in a Country Living magazine article…

Humor, Nonsense

If Laughing Was The Answer, I Wouldn’t Be in This Predicament to Begin With

  Wow, it's been a hot minute since I've come up with a blog post title that long. Can I just get a round of applause for that? Thank you, no really. You don't need to stand up. Which segues nicely into the topic of today's post. Recently, I found this graphic:     Mike… Continue reading If Laughing Was The Answer, I Wouldn’t Be in This Predicament to Begin With


How To Make a Blog Header Without Really Trying

A Grace Full Life

You will be rewarded if you read to the end. That is all I will say. 

First published June 30th, 2014

Recently, I had been noticing other blogs’ headers.


A few days later, I happened to be on Etsy and I noticed that they actually sell blog header packages.
I guess I didn’t know there was a market for such things. The prices were like $30 for a “package” but I didn’t inquire as to what a “package” was. Tee hee. Sorry, bathroom humor.

By the way, for those less inclined, package is another word for penis

Then a few days later, I saw a blog post by my friend Jeanette who created a really cool header on her blog using only Pic Monkey, and I was like wait, WHAT. You can do that?!

*Side note- for those who aren’t bloggers, it will get more interesting…

Some of our Favorite Members Aren’t Family To Begin With

I am finding that as I age, some of our favorite family members are those who aren't even related, to begin with. I mean we have lots of relatives we love that are blood, but my children have called some of my friends "auntie" and "uncle" for years and none of those people have blood… Continue reading Some of our Favorite Members Aren’t Family To Begin With


New York City, Baby! (How NOT to Look Like a Tourist)

A Grace Full Life

This is the last reblog in the series. I find myself missing traveling, missing people, missing being normal, and I felt like these posts were a fun diversion especially with what has been going on this week. 

First published November 22, 2013

New York City is so many things to so many people but to me, it is where Sesame Street is.
The first show I can remember ever watching was Sesame Street and I simply adore that show.

My children have loved that show as well but to this day, I will stop and watch Sesame Street alone, if it’s on. It is mesmerizing.

So when I had the opportunity to visit New York City with my friend Jennifer, I was so nervous and excited (nexcited) to finally get the chance to see this city up close and personal.
Here is my guide to the things we…
