Welcome to An Authentic Life

Authentic posts are made daily, whenever possible, although I have come to learn that balance is a healthy and necessary part of living authentically.

{Besides, an occasional day off keeps the laundry and dust-bunnies at bay. And, Sexy Hubby appreciates a home-cooked meal every now and then.}

What Would YOU do??

A debate has been raised in my household, and I’m wondering how you would weigh in on this subject?

Back story: 

While in the check-out aisle at Wal-Mart last night, an unkempt older man dressed in stained khaki coveralls and an old knit-cap, approached Sexy Hubby and said, “Excuse me, but can you give me a ride home.”

How to Create a Fabulous Holiday Table

I love decorating for the holidays. Not only does it allow a much needed creative outlet, it allows me to spend time in the space and create a feeling of peace and joy.

This year, we are in a new house, where we will establish new traditions. First, I cleared the space (removed all artwork . . . → Read More: How to Create a Fabulous Holiday Table

Sweetest Dish on the Thanksgiving Day Table

{Editor’s Note: I don’t recall from where this recipe originally hailed, but it now owns prime real estate on our annual Thanksgiving day table. I planned my menu last night, and the shopping will begin this weekend all in preparation for the day in which we all look to with gratitude, blessings – and an elephant-sized appetite!

September Events in Montana {That I LOVE!!}

Editor’s Note: With Labor Day behind us, only a few more weeks of summer are officially on the books. Pre-fall leads to many fabulous Big Sky Country events, and one grand event in a darling little town is upcoming this weekend – the Chokecherry Festival and What The Hay. {After unearthing this post, I realized I never shared the images . . . → Read More: September Events in Montana {That I LOVE!!}

YNP (+ Rocco + Me)

Editor’s Note: Sadly, I’ve fallen off the “blogging bandwagon” and can barely keep up with my television addiction to find enough creative time to spend here, within the pages of my beloved Authentic Life.

It’s not that I don’t miss you, my gentle readers, but since our youngest has graduated from high school, and is on his way . . . → Read More: YNP (+ Rocco + Me)

Photo-Bomb Among Montana Wild Flowers

I confess, the infamous “Rebel” is a bit “under the weather” so I have been forced to use my trusty back up, which I’d say in this case, did an exceptionally above average job.

Photos taken today in western Montana – from Plains in route back to the Bo-Zone.

Happy Summer my gentle readers.

Where Does The Time Go? I Know Where!

My child is now an adult (perhaps only in the eyes of the law,) and Sunday he walked across the podium and received his diploma, noting his school career has officially come to an end, college notwithstanding.

He is the very last little chick in the proverbial family nest. For the most part, he’s been particularly easy and . . . → Read More: Where Does The Time Go? I Know Where!

I Need To Be HERE RIGHT NOW!

Editor’s Note: It’s graduation week, a few days before guests arrive, and tassels dance from one side of the mortar board to the other. I’m already exhausted, and not feeling 100%. (Went to see the doc, and there is nothing “wrong” with me, other than perhaps I have a severe case of “Senioritis!”) As I contemplate all . . . → Read More: I Need To Be HERE RIGHT NOW!

Easy Kitchen Update

When I was in California a few weeks ago, a friend said, “Where’s the photo by photo update of the new house?” Damn, you people are spoiled. It takes time to organize, and purposefully and artfully decorate – not to mention time to gather the appropriate levels of expendable finances.

Aside from replacing appliances (which will be awhile . . . → Read More: Easy Kitchen Update

Saluting Those Who Served Us

Editor’s Note: This incredibly patriotic local treasure came as a complete to surprise to me (makes me appreciate the opportunities that arise from weak bladders and the need for constant pit stops.)

This post was written a few years ago in honor of Memorial Day, when we discovered this cemetery south of Big Timber, Montana. It was a very . . . → Read More: Saluting Those Who Served Us
