Just Dream

IMG_0174

I always thought dreamers were mystical thinkers with thoughts and ideas flowing from their brain in a stream of consciousness that could only be understood by another dreamer.  I always thought dreamers were rule breakers, out to upset the status quo and go against the grain.  I always thought dreamers wore long, flowing skirts and […]

Giver of Dreams, Grantor of Dreams

Living at Edisto is a dream come true for Jason and me.  The funny thing about dreams is, no two are the same.  Your dream could be to live in a far off country or it could be a job or maybe you’re dreaming of a house.  Everyone’s dreams are different. A few days after […]

It Happened Again…

                                  The Unger’s have decided to move.                                 Again.  Don’t worry, we aren’t leaving completely, just  moving to Edisto Beach.  In case you don’t know, Edisto Beach is a little community about an hour outside of Charleston, SC. […]

What If? What if? What If?

Guess what?  My first book, Looking Skyward: Turn Your Flight Attendant Dream Into Reality, will be officially released August 19! It will be available for Kindle and you’ll be able to buy it on Amazon. To say I’m afraid is an understatement.  I’ve slid down the training evacuation slide of a 777. I prepared a […]

Wishes and Resolutions

I love making New Year’s resolutions.  There’s just something about all those possibilities.  So much hope.  So much promise.  I’m pretty good at it, too.  I’ve been making resolutions for a long time.  When I was a girl, my Mama (always the teacher) made Chad and I write out our resolutions every New Year.  We […]

The Influence Conference…My First Thoughts

influence305a

I’m back….from Influence.  From Indianapolis.  Back to reality.  But the great thing is my reality is different.   I knew I oughtto go to Influence Conference.  I wanted to support my friend Jessi.  I wanted to sleep in a hotel.  I wanted to learn the art of blogging as a business.  I bought my ticket, made […]

Weekly Writing Prompt: Bucket List

It’s time for a weekly writing prompt post with Voices: Write to be Heard. We have been on a quest to become debt free (except for our house) for 50 months.  After being in the trenches for so long, I sometimes forget to look up and watch for the finish line, and in this race […]

Blah, Blah, Blah, Good Choices

armadillo-purse

There is this really great mall in Charlotte.   Jason and I used to “visit” it for date night when we lived up there.  I say visit because it was way too pricey to really shop.  We would walk past Tiffany’s, Kate Spade, Tommy Bahama and we would dream.  I just knew one day I wouldn’t […]

Dreams on the fridge…part two

    I took a blogging workshop over the weekend.  I was inspired to see the last post the teacher, Nikki Harden, founder of Skirt! magazine, had written was about her “mood board.”  She and I have opposite problems.  Her vision board is too full.  Mine is too empty. She can’t decide what has to come […]

Dreams on the fridge

blank-vision-board

Jason has been asking for a vision board for a few weeks.  One side of our fridge faces into the kitchen, and I got the idea to cover it with chalkboard Contact Paper and make it a vision board.  Chalkboard Contact Paper was harder to find than I would have thought, but I finally ordered […]
