    I’m a Bookkeeper; I’m a Writer, but I am not a Chef…

    Today I thought I would share a funny story. It definitely shows where my strengths are and what my weaknesses are in life. Yesterday evening, I attempted to make hard-boiled eggs.

When we finished, we only had seven eggs that made it to the finished product. My four-year-old daughter assisted me, and if I’m honest,…

    When Life Throws You Lemons Change the Recipe

    You have two option (well maybe three); you either learn to make lemonade, or you cry.  (the third option, you make lemonade and add some vodka).  Either way you look at it, life changes and you need to learn how to deal. Life comes at you fast, I mean really fast.  There is very little time to stop and smell the roses sometimes. Things that you really want to do get put on the back burner while things that aren’t as important to your soul are suddenly front in center.  It is difficult to find balance and often you feel like you have failed at life.  The one golden rule in…
