..some people add to our lives, and that is awesome! However, your happiness should not depend on others. It is all on you. Continue reading It Really Is That Simple
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)

It’s just a weird effect from actually becoming a loving parent. But seriously, that being said, I really fucking hate being a mom. Here’s why.
