A couple of weeks ago I was invited to visit Makenna’s school. They were hosting a book character parade in the morning & I was beside myself to have the opportunity to be present. I took the morning off from work & was ready to make this a fun day for my babe. Makenna was […]
I would like to kick this off by making it common knowledge that I do not consider myself a perfect product of emotional health & wellness (as if that exists?). Healing isn’t a destination or a finish line, in my opinion, but instead an intense period of time spent getting to know yourself. Life as […]
Is a relationship based solely on a fear of what life would be like outside of said relationship a relationship at all? My answer in short, no. To delve in a bit deeper I will quote a line from one of my current reads: “There have been two opposing reactions to the decay of belief: […]

I’m thankful for the experience, it gave me one more notch in the belt of things I am capable of.
Kenna and I have taken up residence at the pool this summer. On most occasions she is content spending her time with me or independently exploring her surroundings but, on occasion, she gets the itch to include other children in her world. Watching my child approach other children to join her in play is interesting […]
Ah, fourth of July was so much fun for me. Freedom, right? The fourth of July holiday wasn’t enjoyable for me because I am overly enthused about America, frankly I find the over the top patriotism a nuisance. I feel an expectation on us to buy all the accessories, fireworks, and food and then parade […]
