september holds

September 1, 2010

Let’s just get this question out of the way at the beginning, shall we? How is it September 1st already? There. No answer? Me either. It’s inevitable, summer is bound to slip away. She does it every year. She is sneaky and good at hiding. I was thinking it might be fun to look at the brighter side of falling into fall. So. Here are some things that are up and coming in the land of the EO: On September 11th, I’ll be speaking at the first-ever Minnesota Blogger Conference in St. Paul. My session is 45 minutes long and is called “Authentic Blogging: The benefits and risks of sharing your personal life online.” I plan to dance and sing. Kidding. I’m really looking forward to this, friends. I wish you could all be there. Except I don’t, because that would make me nervous and I’m currently not all that nervous. Anyway. The […]


Sunday~September 20, 2009 I love a whole lot of things, but one of my favorites is when friends and strangers alike come together for the love of the same thing, for something they care about, to help. So yesterday was a good day, walking around Lake Calhoun with stranger/friends “for the love of Liz,” and to raise money for the foundation that was born in her honor. Liz Logelin 5K – Lake Calhoun-Minneapolis, MN Matt Logelin with daughter Maddy on his head The lovely crew I had the pleasure of walking with When I wrote the post about doing this walk and why, so many of you took the time to donate what you could to this cause or to leave a comment to reach my $100 goal. Thank you just isn’t enough, really. But thank you. Your kindness spread all around Lake Calhoun yesterday, and it was an honor to be a […]


Friday~September 4, 2009 I wrote a little something that I needed to write to myself over here today. It’s about God and how most of the time I just wish He would fix everything without me having to do a stinkin’ thing. Laboring of any kind isn’t all that fun. But I suppose it’s also got a beautiful point to it… And please, if you haven’t yet, could you comment on my last post? Commenting means another dollar donated to the Liz Logelin Foundation. Thanks muchly. It means a whole lot to me. I hope your Labor Day weekend is totally fantastic. Peace. (Comments are closed on this post. You know, so you can head over to those other two places and save loads of time.) Thank you for allowing me to pop up in your inbox and for reading my words, silly or serious. I appreciate you. ~Heather


Thursday~September 3rd UPDATE: Warning: later in this post I will claim that a 5K walk = 5 miles. I have no idea why. I didn’t think, I just typed. I do realize that 5K does not = 5 miles. I just decided it does because my brain does that sort of thing. I need medication, obviously. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ We grew up just down the road from each other. We’ve often joked that the country song that goes something like, “there were 700 fence posts between your place and mine and neither one of us was old enough to drive a car…,” was written just for us. This friend is a very big part of my heart. How do you sum up nearly 30 years of friendship (and counting) with stories and words? You can’t. So I will simply tell you that this friend stole a part of my heart when we were very young, […]
