An Unseasonable Sunday Kind of Love



It’s a Sunday Kind of Love today even though its Monday. I didn’t post it yesterday because…well, I forgot. So, here it is now.

Even though it is February and some of you are covered with snow… I am not. Texas seems to have already given winter the boot.  It was so warm the other day I had to pull out some summer clothes. In the process I pulled out my swimsuit. Now, I hate the beach. I don’t even like the pool very much, but I do love my vintage inspired swimsuit.

I’m loving one piece swimsuits in general. I used to think they were drab, boring and only for fuddy-duddys. Then I had kids and began the frantic search for a bit more fabric on my swimwear. Lets face it, some things are better left unseen.

I found a vintage inspired one piece from Guess that is white with yellow polka dots. I can’t tell you how many compliments I’ve gotten on it. You can be modest and adorable by the pool. Here are some other great one pieces to consider as summer approaches.

For those of you still drinking hot chocolate, enjoy. As for me, it’s time to break out the self tanner and do a bit of cardio. Summer is around the corner!

be a voice, not an echo


Sometimes our world is so noisy it is hard to hear our own voices. It seems we are all screaming the same things louder and louder in an attempt to be heard first.

echo : be repeated or reverberated after the original sound has stopped.

We have glorified the echo. The retweet, the share, the klout.

To be an echo is so attractive to my insecure & unsure self. I know what people want to hear. I know what they will like and pass on. So, why not say that?

I’ll tell you why not. Because we each have our own stories to tell. Our own experiences to convey.

They may not interest everyone or go viral, but they matter all the same. Our stories, perspectives and humor. It is unique to us.

I know sometimes I don’t feel that there is anything original about myself. I am a mom, a wife, a blogger. Me and a bazillion other people on the internet now. But no one else has my story.

Maybe you feel like you don’t have anything worth saying because you don’t feel very stand-out interesting. Perhaps when you talk it seems like no one is listening. But no one else has your story.

The world needs you. It needs me. Each of us telling our stories and speaking our truths.

There are some things only you can say. Be a voice, not an echo.

I don’t usually post about politics, but this is a president I can get behind.
