Dear Me

1. Your dreams aren't wild or untouchable like everyone tells you. Don't let anyone stop you from having crazy aspirations, and it's alright if your dreams don't match with others. 2. Your beautiful won't look like everyone else's beautiful. Anyone or anything that leads you to believe you are not are only sad inside. 3. [...]

Dear Me: A Letter To Myself

Dear Me, I’m so happy you’ve found me again and that you realize the voice in your head is just that -- a voice. A voice that likes to tell you you’re not good enough. That you are a bad mom. That you have screwed up. That everyone else has it figured out and they [...]

Why I Gained Weight For My Class Reunion

This weekend is my 25th class reunion. The emotions that can trigger in us is mind blowing.  Not as much in looking to the past, but in how it causes us to pause and look at where we are in life now, 25 years from the day we thought we could conquer the world. And [...]

I’m Thankful for Every Wart, Big and Small

I’m not going to sugar coat it - it’s been a long day and I’m tired. I’m sitting in a house that was clean 14 hours ago and is now a disaster. Thinking about the mountain of laundry in the bedroom and saying a little prayer that my 3 year old with a double ear [...]

Someday My Prince Will Come….

…and then what?  I’ll be rich?  Live in a fancy house?  Have a maid? Never have to work, have my hair done, and go to fancy social events with my adoring husband who has perfect hair despite having just slain a dragon? I grew up with a loving father, a hands on, involved dad who [...]
