#85: Really Blind Ambition

#85: Really Blind Ambition

A short while ago I was standing in my boss’s office, conversing about the employee performance reviews we had recently completed. We weren’t discussing specific details – more like exchanging verbal high fives that the process was over and we wouldn’t need to talk in acronyms for another year. His door was open, but clearly we […]

#65: On My Magazine Addiction

Hello, my name is Amy and I’m a magazine-aholic.  I blame it on my mother.  Growing up my mother kept the house fully stocked with Good Housekeeping, Family Circle, Better Homes and Gardens, and Women’s Day.  I loved to pore over those magazines, dreaming of how I would one day decorate my own house and […]

#57: On Princess Dreams

I recently got to be a small part of our school’s production of Beauty and the Beast.

#41: On New Year’s Resolutions

I’ll admit it: every January I get caught up in the resolution extravaganza. I love the romance of saying “goodbye” to the old and “hello” to the new. I love having some time to dream. I start the process by getting out and rereading all my favorite, inspiring, goal-setting books: Coming Up for Air by […]

#40: Agrarian Dreamin’

So we’ve moved in the last year, to this house out in the country. Sort of – I mean, I have a Publix closer than ever, a Wal-Mart five minutes away, and only slightly fewer fast-food options within a short drive (is this good or bad?) (never mind, don’t answer that). But we’re out in […]
