So, You Wanna Be A Writer!

So, it’s weird how many times I’ve been told in the last month, that someone admires my ability to get a story out and they wished they could do it too. “You can,” I say. “Are you kidding,” they reply. “I wouldn’t even know where to start!” My response to that is to just do it… just start. Every writer has their own way of writing a novel. There are a million different ways. Some … Please Continue…

Route 91

Two years ago today, my family attended the Route 91 concert in Las Vegas. The weekend had been glorious, our time at the concert exciting and fun, just enjoying the music and spending time with the kids. October 1st had also been really fun. We spent the day at Top Golf, swimming and watching football, hanging out with the kids and customers. The kids left to get ready for the concert, and we stayed behind … Please Continue…

Turning Over A New Fall Leaf…

It’s funny, as I write these blogs I find myself constantly trying to figure out what you, a reader, might be interested in to read. Your time is precious and valuable. If you’re like me, you want to be, a) entertained, or b) learn something new. I find the best-received blogs I’ve written are the ones from my heart. Coincidently, they are my favorites when reading other blogs as well! So, on today’s blog, I … Please Continue…

I Re-Learned a Lesson Today…

I re-learned a little lesson today I wanted to share. Lately, I’ve been so irritated about the climate in which we, as a nation, choose to live. No, this isn’t going to be a political tirade because I think I might vomit if I hear another person talk about how awful, misinformed or ignorant the other side is. Today, I realized some people feel the same way I do. I woke up and it didn’t … Please Continue…

Fathers…

I have written a lot about my family over the years and with Father’s Day fast approaching I started really thinking about my dad, Norman Andreas Rudy or Andy, to all those who know him. He’s as salt-of-the-earth as they come. I learned creativity and workmanship from both my mother and father. However, I remember being young and working with my dad in his woodshop having the best conversations and learning to make something out … Please Continue…

GOT What did you think?

Yes, I am a Game of Thrones fanatic. I didn’t want to be and the first time I watched the series I was mostly confused. Who the hell were all these people? There were too many storylines. Too many main characters getting whacked and what is it with all the sex! After the first season faded to black and the series really took off, I was still confused but tried to embrace it. I wanted … Please Continue…

When The Grinch Gives You Lemons…

I am a fanatic about Christmas and always have been. Since I was a little girl trying desperately hard to stay awake and see Santa, only to fall asleep in an inopportune place and have people trip over me. Now, I begin decorating the day after Thanksgiving, if not before and shopping is usually done before December begins. Some people are disgusted with me for this, but I’ve discovered I enjoy the holiday season so … Please Continue…
