Utah the beautiful

Utah will always be home for me. To be honest I’ve been needing that feeling of home now more than ever. I’ve been lost in a life that is not for me for quite some time, and I am ready to get back to being me. So I made my way to Utah for a…

Gosh it’s been three months since I’ve posted anything on the blog. It was never my intent to get this behind, but we’ve been busy! This fall I began a new job at Texas Tech University. I am an Adjunct Professor in the College of Theatre & Dance. It’s been a huge challenge, but also super…

exploring Boston & NYC with my favorites

Foodie: two new restaurants and a favorite of mine

Normally I’m the type of person who likes routine, especially with my food choices. However I also enjoy exploring; I have made two new restaurant discoveries as of late.

End of Year

Almost exactly a year ago, I posted my very first entry on my blog. I began writing to share. My thoughts are that sharing knowledge and our experiences are one of the most vital aspects of life. Knowledge is power. Hoarding it will only leave you stagnant. The more you distribute, the more that comes…
