Wowzers, for a newbie blog-thank you for the nomination!

I can’t believe it! I have been nominated by Helen in recognition for my blog and I feel very blessed because blogging is still very new to me.


So check her out ( the link is below). I seriously  want to crawl through the screen to get to her Good Eats!  I want to thank Helen for being such an inspiration to me––she really has no idea how much I admire her blog and ideas. I am in awe!


First off, I have to thank my husband Michael because he puts up with so much from me! Really!  Secondly, I am just a beginner at blogging, so this nomination is an honor.

I have recently decided  to change  my blog format. I still believe in what started it––Eating Clean, but now I want to expand on that idea and make it more, so I am very excited!  Please bear with me while I get situated.

We all travel different paths to a healthy life,  and  use different ways get there.  I really want to help those with an injury who think they can’t loose weight but they CAN.

So here are 7 things about me you don’t know me…

  1. I am originally from Mississippi.
  2. I love expensive purses––can we say Coach! 🙂
  3. My Mama calls me Petunia.
  4. My favorite flower is a Lilly. (Michael plants one for me every year!)
  5. I met my husband on a poetry forum ( in fact, he proposed to me with a poem in a bottle!)
  6. I have three cats; Snickers, Oreo and Hershey, all adopted from the Humane Society.
  7. I have been best friends with my friend Kat for over 20 years! I miss her  because she lives in Texas and I live in Michigan. 😦

Pictures-Mem’ries of the Soul!

Ani, Me, Courtney (Mine), Breah and Erik (his)-our family-Christmas-2012


Courtney, my Sister Lisa, me and my Mama, while I was visiting Austin, Texas -summer 2011.

Hello there!

I wanted to share a few pictures of our family with you. I feel pictures are pieces of our soul that we get to view again and again.

Often times, in the blogging world, we only share a part of ourselves– brief windows into who we really are. Well, here are some pieces of me– some precious moments of my life. I hope you enjoy!



Being Goofy!

Traci, Feb 2012-Go Wings!

Of COURSE, we have the Red Wings, GO WINGS! I adore Hockey! 🙂

Breah's 18th Bday-this is Michael's Daughter Breah ( on the left) and their exchange student Ani from South America.

Michael and I went to watch the Wings practice. It was SO freaking cold I must say. I DID ask him to fix my hair, lol-you can see, he didn't! 🙂
