Goodbye 31; Thank You.

As I get ready to close the door on 31, I can’t help but pause and wonder how I managed to keep putting one foot in front of the other some days.  It was a hard year, but it was one of exponential personal growth. It was the year I learned that my mental health […]

#getloud

For months I’ve wanted to share this post.  To share my story.  But for several reasons, I couldn’t bring myself to.  I wasn’t sure if I wanted to have my utmost vulnerable moments ripped open for the world to see and judge.  I wasn’t sure if I wanted to expose my thoughts and feelings the […]

Inspiration

It happens to the best of us – or so I kept telling myself. Creative burnout.  Writers block.  Loss of inspiration. Call it what you will, but you get the point.  I was feeling uninspired for – well the last year.  I wasn’t feeling the zing with the things I normally did.  I was sitting […]

7 Questions To Ask Your Insurance Company – NOW!

When Vic and I were rear ended last September, we had absolutely NOTHING to go on.  I was completely and utterly naive as to how the process would work.  Thanks to the fine people at Young Drivers, I knew enough to document as many details of the accident as I could, as soon as I […]
