In the Nick of Time

Over time I’ve realized that I’ve accomplish many awesome things in my life not because I chose the perfect time, but because I chose the right time. Getting older has improved my sense of when the right time is for something…but I also have more patience to wait for that right time when it isn’t. […] more

The Drop Bag v.2

Short mini posts on whatever…a drop bag of topics that I write during the week and then share. Enjoy! Fig’s riding lessons Fig asked me for riding lessons enough times that she finally convinced me it was her own idea and not something she was doing to please me.
