Today I had an adventure at one of my favorite shoe stores.

I was on a mission that had absolutely nothing to do with shoes and there it was...

A MAGIC SLATE

I flashed back to my childhood, to the plastic and cardboard that kept me entertained for hou...

Raindrops on skin

It’s been an interesting day. So often I make plans and something seems to get in the way. Today I got in my own way and it felt pretty wonderful. 

On day 253 I stripped away everything and had my very first naked rain dance. 

This wasn’t a whimsical dec...

Don't worry

As a kid there was a plaque on the wall at my house the read:

Migraines

If this was a perfect world so many things would have been different on day 251.

This day was jam packed with firsts. I walked uphill both ways. In Seattle it is...

Glass and needles

Seattle is a typical big city. Endless opportunities for food,  stop and go traffic and old and new architecture of every form. 

On day 247 I got a chance to explore two classic Seattle locations ;Chihuly garden & glass and the Space Needle....

Sleepless and Seattle

The time change is wonderful. It's 6am. I'm in Seattle and the window of the apartment is open. I can hear the sounds of Pike Place market.

What's a chick to do so early in the morning in a city she's never visited?

Starbucks!

If you're a coffee drink...

It's a go!

I have exactly 120 days left of this 365 day personal challenge. It hasn't gone exactly as I thought it would and I'm admitting right now that I wanted more action in my 49th year.

Today I made a commitment to take a few more risks and use the healthy body tha...
