MEG’S FRIDAY FIVE

This week has come and gone y'all, and let me tell you - it's been one crazy ride! It's so crazy that so much can happen in one week, and how every week is new and different from the last. But honestly, oftentimes, we don't even realize the blessings we encounter on a weekly or even daily basis, and we are always so drawn to focus on the negative, rather than all that is going good. No matter how tough...

How I Bounce Back from a Crazy Week

So it has been a while since I blogged about anything personal. If you know me, you know that I am a very open book, but I don’t always share a ton on my blog. I thought it was about time for a more personal post. Life is a little hectic right now. I break down my life into a few different areas: faith, home (family/friends) and work. Typically if one or two are a little out of whack I am...

Birthday Reflections

I have to say I have loved my 30’s, but I find my self more introspective about turning 33 than I did 30. I was processing with my husband the other day about how I have lived in Chicago for a decade now. It kind of shocked me for two reasons. One, how in the world has 10 years gone by so fast and 2. What have I learned since becoming independent, married, a mom and a business owner all...

Remembering 9/11

There are certain events that are so dramatic that you know the exact thing you were doing at the exact moment the event took place. Our grandparents remembered where they were when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor.  My parents remembered exactly where they were when JFK was assassinated and we’ll always remember where we were and what we were doing when the Twin Tower’s were attacked.  I remember that day like it was yesterday.  Time stood still as everyone sat in...

Inspire Me Monday…Joe

Yesterday was a great day! I love celebrating all dads, but especially the father to my children. Joe was preaching at Midway Airport yesterday, so wasn't around much, but while he was gone, I spent a lot of time thinking about him and the father that he has become. Mondays are about what inspires me and I tell you what, I loved him on our wedding day, but my love for him has grown as I watch him turning into...

There’s No Place Like Home.

So my cousin got married. Maureen was in my wedding almost six years ago and I cannot even begin to explain how amazing it was to celebrate her as she married an incredible man, Phil. Here she is in our wedding! Man, do I look short! I need to pick some shorter friends! OK, so I love weddings! The bride and groom always look so giddy with anticipation of what their future holds. They look all dolled up and the decor...

Inspire Me Monday…Memorial Day

There are few things more emotional for me than seeing a soldier return home to his/her family after being away. I love watching the homecoming videos to their family or dogs, the parent surprising their kid at school, or any homecoming really. It sparks a sense of happiness in me watching the joy on the faces of those being returned to. My husband preaches at Chicago Midway Airport once a month and I love going with him and when they make the...
