Has this ever happened to you?

Just when I thought I was completely alone–STRANDED in San Francisco, my cell phone rings…

I'm just like you, but totally unique. We have things in common, but we are all God's one-of-a-kind creatures. I enjoy finding The Funny in life when it gets messy. And we all know how life can get messy, right? Some of the things I love: God, family, friends, storytelling, community, nature, the arts, beauty, travel, fun and games, learning, the study of the personalities, teenagers, acting, writing and missions. More specifically: the mountains, the beach, breathing clean air, traveling to new places, experiences, deep conversations, appreciating the minute in nature, lunching with girlfriends, practicing sensing, predicting trends, taking a few risks along the way. I hate routine, so starting (and keeping up) this vlog is risky for me...but I love community (and a few risks), so I'm going for it! I hope you join me and we can have some Serious Fun together!

  1. oh Laurie~ that story always makes me just bust out laughing!! When we have just one too many things going on around us…our head can suddenly turn into ‘LUCY thinking’ or non- thinking with irrational actions and reactions to follow. I think we can all relate. This was such a good laugh… I will save one of my own for later. lol You bless my day LL! ~ Love, LLL

  2. Hey Laurie, I have done similar goofy things too, I believe my most memorable was for an event at Kirkland’s Home Stores when I was a featured artist and Kirkland’s was selling my artwork nationally. I was scheduled to meet the customers at the store and sign prints of my artwork that was being sold at the promotional event. (You may recall it.) I sent out tons of email announcements inviting friends, family, business clients and everyone I could think of to attend. I was so excited. Then I received a reply from my neighbor which said she hoped I hadn’t sent them out to everyone because I had a terrible misspelling on my invites. Apparently my spell checker missed this one. I had invited everyone to my “Pubic Signing” instead of my “Public Signing”!……I was mortified! I laughed and cried at the same time…..Now a college professor I know uses my example of proofreading your paper several times and not trusting spell checker before you submit your final work! My claim to fame!

    • Debbie,
      So good to hear from you!!!! And I remember when this happened to you…SO FUNNY!!!! That is one for the record books of embarrassing moments! I smile (and cringe) every time I think about it!! hahahahaha!

      • Debbie, I think you should send that story to Readers Digest… that story is worth money!!
