Everyday Is A New Day

This last year has been nothing short of a roller coaster. 2020 started out with a tremendous amount of hope for my then-boyfriend and I with our amazing engagement. After a few weeks, I seemed to have planned the perfect summer day with my family and friends to celebrate our union-to-be in our new city…

How I Got Here: Part IX

Finding my name on the Oceanside Pier was not the only sign I had during my short visit to Cali.  As I was driving around I saw a vanity plate that said, "Go Liz" and also another plate frame said, "Moore" which is my Grandmother's last name.  It just felt right. Brian stayed in CA…

How I Got Here: Part I

It has been a looooong time since I have written because I've been saving some things for when the time was right.  If you're reading this you are likely a friend on Facebook and know I moved to Cali.  But how did I get here and why? Back in January 2017, I vowed to put…

Adjusting My Sails

This past September I was nearly laid off again.  This was five months into a new job after being laid off for 18 months!  I was in a state of panic and disappointment.  I just wanted a job that I enjoy doing with people I like and decent pay.  My company was going through a…

2017: The Gift That Keeps On Giving

Ciao 2016!  You were great but 2017 is going to be even better!  I have to admit that 2016 wasn't so bad for me: I learned a lot about myself, even more about others and getting closer to what I want.  What else could a girl need?! If you're a regular reader (and by regular…

Don’t Lose Faith

I was secretly on a mission for the last 11 months and I am sad to report that I have failed.  My goal was to meet a hot and super rich guy to marry and travel with and never work again. I have put my goal aside (for now 😉 ) and found a new job!…

An Ode to The Feehery’s

When I was about two, my mother met a wonderful man from a large Irish Catholic family.  They married shortly thereafter and I suddenly had about 20 new cousins and 12 aunts and uncles. Not being blood related is not a factor in this family.  They welcomed my brother and I from the beginning.  I…

What Are You Waiting For?

The other day I was sitting on the beach with my friend explaining how hard the dating scene is.  I had been on a couple dates and had a couple coming up.  Unfortunately, the one had cancelled our 2nd date the day before due to work schedule which is totally understandable. Since I'm an open book I have to…

Misfortune = A Lesson

In the last few weeks I have come across some misfortune. Initially I was only sharing this information with close friends and family however I have learned so much in the last few weeks that I couldn’t help but share what I have learned. In May, I lost my job and the grieving process started…

6 Months and 10 Pounds Later…

It’s time to get back into the swing of things with eating healthy and being good to my body through activity. It has been a long cold winter that’s been a big setback especially since I am signed up for the Spring Lake 5 miler in 32 days. Eeek! No worries though because a goal without…
