Random thoughts, lovely links and a thought-provoking question – this will be a recurring article. I hope you enjoy it. Whenever I spend a little time reading my favorite blogs or exploring the web for quality content, I like to sink into a cozy chair with a favorite beverage – either a hot cup of jo, a steeping soul-satisfying tea or an impressive sipping cocktail. Just a suggestion. Happy reading.
Because, well you know, there’s always a lot on our minds…
Do you have random thoughts swimming in your head endlessly like 100 open tabs on your browser? I do. Always.

~ When my daughter gives me a hug, she leans in and hugs with every ounce of her emotion. I can almost feel her heartbeat. It’s one of the best feelings I know.

~ Have you ever heard of a bosky dell? A bosky dell is quite literally a covered, shady place with an abundance of trees or shrubs. A serene and peaceful retreat in nature. I think I want to create one in our woods.
~ I became ordained and was the officiant for my sister’s wedding a few weeks ago. We also hosted her wedding at our house. That was overwhelming in every single way, but it was the most beautiful celebration. I met some incredible people. A solid mix of beauty and overwhelm, isn’t that the way of life?
~ I love a cold, crisp Sauvignon Blanc from the Marlborough region of New Zealand. That is all.
