Everyone loves freebies! For Day 5 of our 7-Day Blogging Challenge, we were encouraged to give away something for free. How fun! Here is the prize I am offering: a Random Act of Kindness (RAK) to be done in your name complete with a blog post mentioning you and your website or blog (if you… Continue reading Free RAK!
When was the last time you received a love letter? No, not a text message. Not a Valentine's Day card. An actual love letter. Handwritten. Folded. Filled with words of endearment and appreciation for YOU. Can you remember such a time? Last summer while on vacation, I was waiting in the wee hours of the… Continue reading Love Letters to Ketchikan
This afternoon I decided to leave school at a decent time (something about being the last car in the parking lot twice this week, walking alone in the dark, makes me remember how much I dislike the time change!) I still had work to do, so I thought it would be a nice change to… Continue reading Good Cheer
Recently, I found myself in a heated discussion with someone else about the role "random" plays in the phrase "random acts of kindness" (also known as a RAK or RAOK.) "You can't call it a RAK if it's not random. The fact that you are pre-planning the event takes away from the novelty of it… Continue reading #ISTE2015 Truly Random Acts of Kindness
One of the things I love about living near Richmond is that we are close to a REAL Krispy Kreme donut shop. Our shop makes the donuts from start to finish in plain view of the customer, with only a glass wall separating you and the production line. If you've never had an original glazed… Continue reading Donut Delight

It's always so inspiring for me when I see kindness in others - I often wish I could screen capture my moments and… Continue reading A Week’s Worth of Kindness
Last weekend my husband and I were in DC to celebrate our 20th anniversary. (Yes, we've been married quite a long time!) He chose a restaurant we had never been to before called Lincoln, which happened to be within walking distance of our hotel. The serving staff was friendly, the food was flavorful and reasonably… Continue reading Random Act of Kindness – Cheesecake and Champagne
This entire weekend has been rainy. Dark. Dreary. Drizzle. Downpours. Depressing. Somehow the alliteration of my words echoes the dullness of the day. So... what better way to beat the doldrums... but to don my raincoat and drive out to perform a RAK! 🙂 As many of you know, several of my RAKs occur at… Continue reading Random Act of Kindness – Rainy Day #RAK
Well, once again I found myself at Starbucks performing another RAK. (I'm sure you are convinced I have a coffee addiction by how many of my posts reference Starbucks, lol.) I met up with a friend during our once-every-four-years coffee break (I am not kidding. It really has been four years since we've seen each… Continue reading Random Act of Kindness – Sharing is Fun!
Last Friday was the official "last day of school" for teachers. WOW! Another school year done, time for summer break. As I was packing up my belongings for the two month hiatus, I thought again of the students and teachers at Sandy Hook Elementary School. I recently read that their district has plans to demolish… Continue reading Random Act of Kindness #16 of #26acts – Discounts for Diners
