An Interview + A Giveaway {Mindy Tsonas}

This marks the first in a monthly series of interviews.  I've done a handful in the past (here and here are two examples); moving forward, my intent is to introduce you (on a regular basis) to some very special people...individuals who work equally hard at their craft and at living an intentional life.  Someone new each month, sharing [...]

Five on a Tuesday + a Giveaway

I like my lists.  I know you know.  When I just need to get something (anything) down, lists are how I fill my page.  Yes, the to-do lists (there's always a current to-do list). But the other lists.  The ones for gratitude, the ones for right now, the ones for dreams.  I like the way lists [...]

Five and a Giveaway

But the truth is that I [...]

This time, Cory talks about her music, her just-do-it attitude, and her newly released album.  Here we go... As a creative mama myself, I find it challenging to [...]

Killer Toes {and a giveaway}

Her toes kill me.  There's snow on the ground and she wears no socks...I don't get it.  But they're still tiny, and that kills me too.  Sometimes I wonder if, in some way, she knows just how much I love her toes and that's why she runs about the house year round without socks. Do [...]
