According to Google, I’m middle-age and have been for a few years or so. Through my forty-
something trips around the sun, I have been through a lot, as a daughter, wife, mom, sister, and
friend. Lost my mother to cancer at twenty, found a sister at twenty-three, lost a child at forty-
one to Meth, birthed a daughter, provided foster care for the state of KS for sixteen or so years,
and adopted three children. I have lost about fifty pounds over the past few years and discovered
a clothing brand that makes me feel attractive, no matter what I weigh. So, I decided to invest in
that clothing company and start my own business.

This site is about tying everything together and sharing those lessons learned, ways I’m still
growing and learning, and resources I’ve found. Here you’ll find the following:
Blogs that focus on:

  • Various foster and adoptive parenting topics.
  • My weight loss journey and struggles.
  • Fashion and personal style.
  • My journey as a contractor and entrepreneur.
  • The importance of self-care and personal development.

Online workshops that focus on the same topics.
Links to my Agnes & Dora shopping site and FaceBook Group where you can find all the cute
styles you see here.

I hope you join me as we continue our journey. Remember to extend grace to each other and
yourself, along the way. Sometimes as we travel around the Sun, that light will either help us
grow and bloom, or scorch a few petals, but if we love and support each other, we’ll find that the
journey is not so bad after all!

Family – no matter how

Family – no matter how

Family – no matter how There we stood, in the judge’s chamber, November 5, 2002.  The three boys looked stunned, the social workers were ecstatic, and I cried.  I couldn’t believe that after two years, our journey of wanting the boys to be a permanent […]

Just Bloom

Just Bloom

Why I chose Just Bloom

Nike tells us to “Just Do It.” Face the fear. Get it done. No matter what, to just press forward daily. That’s what “Just Do It” means to me. Then there is, “Just Bloom.” Just Bloom is beyond getting it done.

Blooming speaks to more of a process, a transformation. There is a plan and steps that are followed when a flower blooms. Blooming is natural and full of beautiful organization. “Just Do It” almost seems haphazard in comparison. “Just Bloom” to me, is also giving you permission to be uniquely you, just like flowers in a flower garden.

We expect flowers to bloom, and they do, in their own time. Is it your time to bloom?

Flowers need sunlight, water, and proper nutrients in the soil. Environment Is also important!

So, ladies! What are you waiting for? Bloom where you are planted!

What does it mean to you – to bloom where you are planted?

How is your environment? Are you comparing yourself to others? (Don’t compare your flower to any other flower in the garden. It will only steal your joy, comparison is the weed in your garden – so – root it out!) Maybe you’re unhappy in your work?

Are you giving yourself the proper nutrients to bloom? Are you speaking kindly to yourself? Taking care of yourself?

Are you giving yourself permission to bloom? Be you!!

What do you need to bloom? Is there something missing in your life?
