Palm trees are my love language. People! Three whole blogs devoted to how a palm can reflect some attributes we need? Yeah. This is obsession. This will be my last mention of palm trees on my blog for a few months, so if you're more of an arctic tundra enthusiast, go ahead, do your celebratory… Continue reading Palm Sunday – Saturday Part THREE
I wouldn't consider myself a tree hugger. But I have hugged a palm tree. Actually a few. I'm sure I'm not the only one. It's just a tourist thing, right? Obviously, when I have a palm tree in my own front yard, I won't be hugging it all the time. Actually...no promises. Last week we… Continue reading Palm Sunday-Saturday Part TWO

This season in my life, like many of you are or have experienced is one where I am reflecting a lot on my life as a whole. Last year, at the beginning of the year, I decided to have a theme for the year to help me filter my commitments, my goals, and to… Continue reading Defining Destiny
