  • "I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." -Maya Angelou

The beauty in a gathering of friends is the warmth that is ignited within us. The gentle touches that make us feel welcomed and cared for can be as simple as a cup of coffee or as detailed as exquisitely laid table. Both are an offering of love and kindness. Yesterday, a lovely group of women that I admire invited me into partake in friendship, a good meal and a moment of encouragement. As I walk away with renewed and nourished soul I am so thankful for these women who remind me of the gifts of hospitality. I'm grateful for the tender power of this art form, this place to gather that feeds the spirit, mind and heart.

  • My fall flavors are carrot cake & ginger bread. But I have a confession, I don’t bake well. I rarely wear my glasses in the kitchen and I’ve NEVER followed instructions very well so my baking mistakes are epic. The precision and concentration to create confectionary masterpieces is rarely worth the time or the guilt.  Birthday cakes come from Costco, I can make put cookie dough on a pan but I’ve even been known to mix up baked goods that come out of a box.  I do LOVE to cook.  I used to love painting but it feels the same in my brain as standing over the stove and my people are much more excited to see my culinary creations than my artwork. Go figure! .  Today, I bake to make memories. Life is moving fast and I’m always looking for meaningful ways to engage my children.  This recipe will give you those stolen moments together. For the recipe on these Carrot Cake Cookies click the link in my profile. It’s so easy even I can do it. .  #makememories #carrotcakecookies #fall #nothingisordinary #familytime #everydayadventure #nothingisordinary #ibakedit #webaketogether #frommykitchentoyours
  • "One secret of life is that the reason life works at all is that not everyone in your tribe is nuts on the same day. Another secret is that laughter is carbonated holiness." -Anne LaMott .
I'm so thankful for my tribe @arthousedallas and the inspiration, encouragement and laughter they've brought along the way. .
Today, I got my hands on an advance copy of Empathy for the Devil, Finding Ourselves In The Villains of the Bible, by JR Forasteros. @jrforasteros .
I've had the privilege of watching this piece grow from edited pages our tribe has spoken into and over to this fantastic book. Thanks for sharing your journey with us! Look for the book Nov. 7th. .

  • Creativity is a flame that ignites the soul but just as easily the light can be snuffed out. Communities of artists become  a shelter from the storms of life or give a spark to an idea or passion. How many great works never reach the light of day for lack of courage or support? I'm grateful for all the creatives who've poured into my journey and helped me find my voice. Thank you @arthousedallas for the way you cultivate, inspire and sustain artists in our city. .

  • Natural hair, it can be overwhelming, messy, imperfect and expensive but the look of confidence in her eyes when we get it right is priceless. The help I’ve received has not only helped us learn about hair but also given us a place in a beautiful community with members being added every day.  Our repertoire has grown from simple twists or braids to crochet styles and faux dreads. Afro puffs still make my heart go soft and I love the auntie that gave her blue box braids this summer with an affection only a white mama can understand.
.
These days it’s special watching her grow and care for her hair on her own. But I still love separating the curls with my fingers, massaging conditioner into the root myself. Each style becomes a mother’s prayer. It’s a prayer for peace, for beauty, for strength.
.
A prayer she finds her own voice in this world and delights in her unique expression of God’s glory.

  • Three generations walking to remember my grandmother Ethel Helgeson and all those affected by Alzheimer's. We walk to remember, we walk to raise awareness, we walk to raise money for research, we walk in hopes of finding a cure, we walk to bring dignity to all those living with this disease.
.
The best part of today- all the family moments that happened, we explored UTA, we told stories of past lessons and adventures, we fell into step with one another as only family can.
. 
Thank you to all the family that gathered for today's Walk for Alzheimer's. @kacalligraphydesign @jwollsch @bwwollsc1 and more. .

@heleneinbetween On our summer escape in Europe I loved the epic sights but the moments that have stuck in my heart are the impromptu berry picking, carousel rides, funny faces, late night book readings, BBQ adventures, getting lost, and lazy days by the river. .
.
None of it required much planning but it did require being present. Thank you Europe for helping me witness their childhood. May we never be too old to explore and play. .

  • "Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime." -Mark Twain
