Welcome to the 2021 Adventure

Summer is almost here! I am truly enjoying the outdoors already. Ollie and I are exploring our new town with long walks almost every day. With my new house, comes a new yard. I’ve planted my garden and flower beds and I’m anxiously awaiting for my summer vegetables and colorful blooms. Hero Husband put up a birdbath and he’s currently putting together our new outdoor furniture. I am dreaming of summer afternoons on the chaise with a good book. Summer is meant for leisure and yet we often over schedule our weekends and even our vacations. I encourage  you to schedule some rest. Take time to enjoy the sun, the flowers, the fresh air. Have lunch with a new friend and share your dreams. Soak in the warmth and thank your Creator for all things beautiful in your life. And when your cup is full of joy and gratitude, let it spill over on your family and friends. We’ve had enough dark clouds this last year…it’s time to shine!

I Wrote A Book


Vacuuming up a snake, frogs in the kitchen, sending her son to war, beauty product foibles and a bicycle tour in Paris. That's just a sampling of the adventures you'll uncover in Dumpster Diving.
Sit a spell and enjoy a cup of coffee with Lori as she takes you on a journey of "lessons learned". You will soon discover that often it's the crazy that renders the profound. You will laugh out loud, and maybe even shed a tear as you "dive into her dumpster" to find the treasure in her stories. A motivational memoir that will leave you wanting more.

Outside of Ordinary is Lori's forum to bring joy, hope and encouragement to your day or maybe just a moment. 

Any ordinary person, ordinary day, or ordinary moment can become extraordinary when someone steps out of their circle of expectation. 

What appears to be an ordinary day canchange in a flash when you change your perspective: 

  • Look at that flower

  • Look at that person's eyes

  • Try something new

  • Really listen to the lyrics of the song

  • Really taste the food

  • Just stop and breathe

  • Accept the love that's being offered

  • Choose to be kind

The list is endless, the possibilities are amazing, and the adventures exhilarating. Lori wants to take you on a journey as she tells the stories of her day to day encounters, to not only bring a spark of joy, but to challenge you to see your own life in maybe a new way. Who doesn't love to find a great big package on their doorstep...God gives you a new one with every sunrise. It's called TODAY.

Let's take a step out of the circle and tear into it together. 


God can do anything, you know - far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams!
