Two friends sent me copies of this song after the Misty Creek Community Church’s YouTube edition of Palm Sunday’s service went live this morning. Lo, and behold, my tremendously talented friend, Doug Allen, has written another amazing song. Inspired by seeing the Everything Will Be Ok signs all over town and a conversation he had with two other friends of mine (Sally and Ken Abele), he sat down and wrote a beautiful song to share with the world.… Read More »
My friend/neighbor, Heather, took over managing our Meadowlake neighborhood book club a few years ago and has done an amazing job. I’m sharing her note to our book club from this week because it is full of great info!
- Barnes & Noble Perimeter is still doing online orders with curbside pickup from 10-5.
Hope everyone is staying safe and healthy! Obviously, I am limited to take out and delivery for the foreseeable future, so comments about service and restaurant ambiance will be at a minimum for a while. Reviews, however, won’t be as I’m back home and in desperate need of things to do.… Read More »

I bought this mix/kit from Walmart a few weeks ago. The girls made these s’mores cookies tonight and they were SO good. The only difference is that I flashed them under the broiler for a few seconds to toast, but the girls were able to do the rest.… Read More »
I’ve been chatting with my mom a lot more lately during quarantine and she told me the other day that the thing she misses most about not going out is being unable to get out to the nursery to buy flowers. Like mother like daughter.
My friend and owner of PlanIt Itineraries is posting almost daily videos of some of her favorite destinations. In the spirit of positivity Danielle is hopeful they will serve as a mini-escape for you and allow everyone to dream about future travels!

The recent concerns about the spread of COVID-19 have created major ripple effects. Many children are home from school and many parents are working from home (when they are able) or taking time off from work.… Read More »
I’ve never “Zoomed” until this week. Now I’ve Zoomed at least 6 times and have several more appointments on my calendar for next week. I kinda like it and plan to continue to incorporate Zoom into my post-pandemic plans. When my Fitness Together trainer dudes offered to train me via Zoom, I was very skeptical. … Read More »
I must admit that I’d never even heard of Zoom until last week. I bet most of you don’t even know that before I was “the AHA Connection girl” I was a Project Manager for AT&T responsible for Cisco Telepresence video conferencing installations all over the world. I managed installations in South Korea, Turkey, Chile, United Kingdom and Costa Rica…just to name a few. … Read More »

Some of you may remember my high school friend who is not only a “stuttering comic”, but also a veteran…and now a husband and father of two young girls. Back in the early Aha! Connection days we (our community) sent Jody and his fellow soldiers cases and cases of Halloween candy overseas!… Read More »
Many of you (like me) are doing everything you can to find ways to stop spending and save money during these weird uncertain times. Plus, social distancing means many all day pajama days! However, if you are bored and have money for clothes it might be the perfect time to try Stitch Fix. … Read More »
When updating my weekly order from Sun Basket this morning I realized it is probably a good time to remind you about this amazing company. During this social distancing time it is nice to know that my Sun Basket arrives weekly at my front door via “contact free delivery” with a great meal for my once again family of 4. … Read More »
I’ve had several people reach out to me over the past few days asking for a directory of food-to-go in our community. Everyone wants to support our local economy and everyone needs to eat!
Here’s the link to the list I’ve come up with so far! There’s more than one page so be sure to scroll through the whole list.… Read More »
