Camp Robbers

Maybe it’s the slight breeze mixed with the 75-degree, overcast weather today. Or maybe it’s because I recently noticed a few leaves beginning to fall. But something occurred when I awoke this morning that caused me to be overtaken with that familiar and very welcomed feeling of “Fall is in the air.” Continue reading “Camp Robbers”

Superheroes and Villains

This world can be a very scary place.

We all see the stories on the news or hear them being rehashed over the morning talk shows on our way to work. We see the movies and documentaries out on Netflix and find that the “bad guys” are typically capable of wearing their masks all too well.

The stories could take place across the world or a few blocks over, which leads us all to be aware that villains can reside anywhere. Yes, it’s true, the world unfortunately isn’t all rainbows and butterflies. It’s real, and as lovely as it can be, it can also be a scary place. Continue reading “Superheroes and Villains”

Good Vibes Monday: Going Back to the Beginning

Hi Good Vibes Readers,

As you can tell, this Good Vibes Monday story is coming your way on a Tuesday. Apologies on the delay, but this story took a bit of time to “re-work.”

Although I hate going off schedule, I wanted to do things a bit differently for this week’s post, so I’ll be going back to the very beginning of my blogging dayswhen I had absolutely no subscribers, mind you—to share a previously published feel-good story with you all this week.

When I first started my blog a little over a year ago, I wasn’t quite sure of the direction I wanted it to go. I knew I didn’t want to create a blog to sell anything, or to fill up page after page with “how-to” or “listicle” articles. In my opinion, there’s enough of those out there already.

Good Vibes Monday: A Dilemma, A Good Neighbor, and a Credit Card

Life has a funny way of being unpredictable.

Sure, we can try to do everything “just right” or try to think three steps ahead hoping things will always go as planned. I think it’s all part of this ‘really-wanting-to-have-our-crap together’ mentality. But life? Yeah. Some days, it just likes to give you a big old reminder that IT‘S really the one in control.

Good Vibes Monday: I’ll Remember this of You

It can all be taken away from us in the blink of an eye.

No matter how many times we’re reminded of this by either seeing it, hearing it, or worse yet, living through it, that initial blow of finding out someone you know has passed away never fails to hit right in the gut.

Good Vibes Monday: Lemonade Stands and Summertime Nostalgia

Good Vibes Monday: Ch-Ch-Ch ‘Changin

Hi there, Good Vibes readers. It’s been awhile!

In case you’re wondering where in the heck I’ve been the past few weeks, let me now put your mind at ease.

First off, no, I did not give up on Good Vibes Monday on account of having no good deeds worth writing about… as a matter of fact, it’s quite the opposite! During my recent blogging and writing hiatus I’ve found not only one, but MANY good things happening out in the everyday world that I’m just itching to tell you all about.
