A New Life

It has been 2 years, 4 months, and 29 days since I last wrote something for this blog. A lot has happened during that time, and a lot will continue to happen moving forward. First things first, Covid-19 has forever changed our world and our reality. I truly hope everyone is happy, healthy, and safe. Whether you are living strictly isolated, or are beginning to … Continue reading A New Life

Date Night Jar (REMIX)

Grab a mason jar and jot down ideas on ways you can date yourself. On ways you can be more intentional with your friends, your family, your coworkers! Give yourself time to grow more as an individual. It will be worth it. I live in the Seattle region and so these are my ideas. If you live outside of Seattle, start asking friends for specific … Continue reading Date Night Jar (REMIX)

No, she didn’t pass away, but our arrangement came … Continue reading My Life As a Stay at Home Mom

Wake up and shake it all off. Today is a new day.

I won’t lie, this has become my daily mantra. If I don’t tell myself this, it’s incredibly hard to get out of bed and actually feel like a human being with a purpose. I can’t tell if I’m chained to my bed because of sleep deprivation (thank you wonderful son who refuses to stay in his bed), or if it’s the depression that tends to … Continue reading Wake up and shake it all off. Today is a new day.

Tomorrow Is a New Day 

Yesterday as I went to the checkout counter at Subway, I saw a sign propped up next to the till, asking for donations for the #StrongAgainstCancer campaign. If you don’t know what that is, it’s a donation campaign to raise funds for children’s hospital for children fighting cancer. I teared up right there on the spot. I thought of Logan. I then saw my wrist … Continue reading Tomorrow Is a New Day
