Let’s Talk About Dead People

I read an article today that a friend sent me, which got me thinking about Fathers Day coming up. If you’ve been here for awhile you know that my dad passed away a couple years ago. I’ve written about death before, but never really my complete thoughts because I haven’t yet wrapped my head around how to fully write about it this topic + how I feel. But what I...

Showing Up For Anxiety: The Daily Training

Showing Up For Anxiety: The Daily Training

So here we are with a long awaited topic (at least on my end, on your end I’m sure you were not awaiting me to discuss the anxiety that you never knew I had)   Anxiety is a funny word…a word that gets thrown around WAY too much (by myself included) to describe instances in which we may be nervous, or overwhelmed, or afraid. But for those that have dealt...

3 Years Of Laughter: An Open Letter On Our Anniversary

Anniversary Letter

We spend a lot of time laughing. Honestly, maybe I’ve laughed too much at times. But I wouldn’t have it any other way. I’ve laughed during sex, during funerals, during silent yoga classes…and none of this is because I do not respect important moments…but more so that I am a person that takes life so seriously at times, that I have learned the value in one’s ability to laugh. I...

New Years Resolutions 2017

Here are some of the things I wanted to highlight and document that happened throughout this year, and my goals that I’d like to go into the new year with. My Reflection of 2016 Personal: Celebrated two-year...

What I Am Thankful For This Thanksgiving

I know I post photos of us often that are perfectly staged, and that’s what they are a lot of the time. They’re always filled with love but also with creative ideas I may have about how I can make a pretty image (As are a majority of things people choose to put on social media). But this here is such a true depiction of the most safe space in...

“It Gets Better”

  “It gets better” I could not even count the amount of times I have heard this exact phrase since my father passed. And I cannot count the amount of times I prayed this would be true. Two plus years later, I can report that it hasn’t happened really. Maybe at four plus years, but as of now, no, it hasn’t really “gotten better”.   My heart aches, not every...

Well, Here We Are…

So…this is what I’ve been waiting years to do. This sentence right here. And this one as well. “Starting” has always been the hardest thing for me. If you spoke to any of my closest friends and asked them to describe me in a couple of words, I’m sure “perfectionist” would be in their top five choices. There has always been something about that word I loved. It sounds so neat,...
