As humans, we are often told to listen to our hearts. We are told to pay attention to our "inner voice" and that its words should reign supreme over all else. There is an actual movement surrounding a greater effort to pay attention to our feelings, and while this is something that I would ordinarily get behind (and, in ...

Their names

Ok. This is a biggie. Not in the way that some other posts are biggies, but in a different (and maybe even biggie-er) way. I have been writing this blog for over seven and a half years. On it I have shared my innermost thoughts and feelings; my deep secrets; my real-time triumphs and trials. I have even shared ...

déjà vu

(Editor's Note: This post was originally composed on Monday, December 19. Writing had to be postponed* which accounts for any confusion as I refer to "today" as "Monday" when it is, now, Tuesday. Many thanks!) Today, I had a massive case of déjà vu, and not necessarily for the best reasons. I am really fascinated by the concept of ...

#winning

(Warning: This post is not for the faint of heart and is a little gross. Possibly NSFW. You've been warned.) Do you see that photo above? That photo describes the blissful way in which I ended last night. I crept into my daughter's room, as I do each night, wrote her a note to wake up to, kissed ...

Varsity

Dear World, Today is Election Day. (Go vote! Even if your kids are off of school, I urge you to vote! However, NOT THE POINT OF THIS POST!) I am writing to tell you that, before noon today, I earned a varsity letter on my mom jacket. Let's start at the beginning: This morning, I woke up before 7, which is unusual for ...

The Dark Side

It started with the covers. This morning, from 7:00am - 7:25am, I had the privilege of sharing my side of the bed with a tall, red-headed child who will turn four in exactly one week. My husband had left early for the day, my daughter had already made her way downstairs, and so it was just ...

Something Funny

Here's a joke for you: "Why is a computer so smart? It listens to its Motherboard!" *** OK, so I am notorious for being terrible at telling jokes. Don't get me wrong; I think that I am FUNNY AF. I just can't seem to do the whole "What is the definition of a sweater?" thing. See? Even that made no sense. (Just ...

I got a little sad

I have had a lot of blog posts formulating in my head. I want to share so much with you. I have wanted to share what I have been up to; some cool updates. I have wanted to share with you some fun or helpful or pretty new finds so that you can enjoy them like I have. I thought that ...

Five Things Podcast

Hello! Hi! I've missed you! As you can see from the photos above, I have been busy. SOOO BIZZY. You know, with things like re-doing my bathroom, getting makeovers at my daughter's new salon, taking & printing photos at the dinner table with my girlfriends and dancing at Kellerman's. DIRTY dancing. In all seriousness, the collage above shows ...

Where I’ve Been

Hello! Hey, friend. I’ve missed you. You look really cute today, by the way. I have not written in too long (though I did recently publish a new podcast and one with a cliffhanger, no less!) and so I want to catch up with you. I hope that you’ve been well. Here is what has been going on and why ...
