Human Hungry Hungry Hippos — My Family’s Game Night on Video

Yes, this is another one of those posts where I show you the hilarity that my family brings when we get together. And yes, this is my extended family… mom shakes her head at her crazy kids, grandkids and the folks we have all decided to share so much of our holidays, etc. with. The […]

Human Foosball Makes for an Awesome Family Game Night

By this point, I think my family Thanksgivings have become legendary. My extended family gets together every other year and we go big — big fun is a key piece of it every time. At the last one, we played our first games of human foosball and human hungry hungry hippos. And I have to […]

Old Friends Give me an Incredible Sense of Gratitude

So much reason for gratitude because I have so many friends I can count on. Quite a few are old friends (long-time friends, not friends who are old!) who are frequently on my mind even if they aren’t in the same room. There are lots of friends who I may not see or talk to […]

Celebrating November by Giving 30 Days of Thanks

I have backlogs of stuff I want to write, posts from my summer trip to Japan and my big roadtrip to Montana. I also have lots of other things that I think would be good to share. But this summer & fall have been so hectic for me that I really want to step back […]
