as disneyland’s 60th anniversary kicks off in all it’s diamond bedazzled glory, i think it’s appropriate to remember the words of walt disney… “i only hope that we don’t lose sight of one thing – that it was all started by a mouse.”


money can’t buy happiness

by @according2kelly on May 22, 2015

you can’t buy happiness, but you can buy (running) shoes & that’s kind of the same thing.

even though i’m on a “break” from running, it’s amazing how happy it makes me just to lace up my new balance kicks… especially when they are tinker bell inspired & jam packed with faith, trust & pixie dust.

i hate to shatter any images you might have had of me, but i’m far from perfect & i am definitely not super mom – or at least i never thought i was.

luckily, i’ve realized, my kids think differently. in their eyes I AM supermom…

feeling extremely lucky & incredibly grateful that these three call me “mom.” they encourage me each & every day to be the best person I can be.


adventures in orange county: Laguna Beach

by @according2kelly on March 9, 2015


it’s been said that “the cure for anything is salt water – sweat, tears or the sea” & i’d have to agree. luckily my favorite “cure all” is practically right down the street… laguna beach is my personal paradise, on earth.

next time you decide to escape to “paradise,” make sure to stop by heisler park. it’s the perfect place to watch the sunset, enjoy a picnic, catch a glimpse of catalina island (on a clear day), or if you’re really luck – you might even see a whale or a pod of dolphins swimming by.

if you’re up for a real adventure, stop by gelato paradiso first. then head to the park on foot… just walk north of main beach on the board walk, and you will find a stair case leading up to the park.


i can do hard things

by @according2kelly on March 8, 2015


running is hard. no matter how many miles i log, it just never seems easy. & unfortunately i have found that there are no short cuts, or quick fixes; that each step is a struggle & every breath difficult.

but i’ve also come to realize that it’s supposed to be hard. “if it wasn’t hard, everyone would do it. the “hard”… is what makes it great.” after all, “running is nothing more than a series of arguments between the part of your brain that wants to stop & the part that wants to keep going.”

luckily for me, the part that wants to keep going usually wins, no matter how hard it is. & despite not “feeling” ready to run the ASICS LA Marathon next week, i know i am. i just have to remember #icandohardthings.

wish me luck!

buy yourself flowers

by @according2kelly on March 6, 2015

tulips-make-me-happysome days you just have to create your own sunshine…

buy yourself flowers, eat a donut (or two), play your favorite
song while you work, put on lipstick for no reason at all.

whatever makes you feel amazing is worth doing.

like mother like daughter

they say imitation is the greatest form of flattery… & i have to admit my heart skipped a beat or two when charlie wanted new ASICS to match her mama’s – how could i say no?
