I may be losing my mind

I think I’m losing my damn mind. You read that right. I may very well be losing my mind. Like — all of it. Four weeks ago I had knee surgery. Turns out a stupid trampoline fall made me rupture my ACL, tear my Meniscus and fracture my MCL. And because I ignored said trampoline fall I also sprained a…

why being “a lifestyle expert” is stupid

I’m having a moment. It’s one of those moments for me where it’s me, this laptop, a glass of wine and thoughts. So many thoughts. On this post I’ll be a real blogger – the O.G. kind (that’s original gangsta’ for those of you who don’t know.) The type of blogger who writes about their thoughts, or life happenings rather…

“If we couldn’t laugh, we’d all go insane.” – Jimmy Buffet So often I drive down the street in my minivan and these thoughts enter my head and I want so badly to have my laptop to let them pour out onto the page. Where is my self driving car so that I can do this? I mean for crying…

it’s time to celebrate you

what I want my daughter to know and a note to myself. This article has been rolling around in my brain since Christmas time. Maybe even longer, say oh, over ten years, I just didn’t know it would come in blog format. It’s a conversation I’ve had so many times over the years with my husband, my sisters and closest…
