One Of My Favourite Toys

With smart phones, compact cameras, and access to DSLRs – we are never without a way to snap a photo of whatever strikes our fancy.  As a child who grew up sneaking her mother’s 110 camera to take photos of random things around the house, I can’t deny my love of all things photography.  And […]

#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 […]

Censorship Be Damned

Have you ever wanted to say something, but kept it in because you just didn’t want to deal with someone’s reaction? Of course you have. I’m sure most of us wish we could be Sheldon Cooper for a day (or twenty) – me, if I were able to have one super power, the ability to […]

Happy Mothers Day Wishes For The Mother-in-law I’ll Never Meet

Tomorrow I’ll stop by and silently wish you a Happy Mother’s Day.  A woman I’ve never met.

These Green Walls

I popped the cover on the can of primer and began painting the hallway of our apartment today.  He didn’t want me to paint, I knew it.  But I’ve been on Pinterest a little too much lately and was determined to give our home a facelift. “Ugh, I hate painting.” Which he totally does and […]

Last Day of Classes

It was the last day of classes today you guys!  I’ve been both anticipating and dreading it for weeks now.  I mean it’s lovely not to wake up in the dark knowing I don’t have to dig my car out of another snow fall, only to get to campus – and have no parking.  I […]

My Beautiful Mess

I have wanted to revamp the blog for quite some time now.  I had a vision in mind, but making that vision come to life was proving to be more difficult than I had anticipated.  I priced graphic designers – way out of my budget.  I tried to recall coding – but realistically who can […]

You Are Enough . . .You Are More Than Enough . . .

The feelings of inadequacy can be crippling.  Each time you’re told you’re not enough, is like a physical blow.  It dents the ego until it’s nonexistent.  It shatters your spirit until you’re convinced you’re worthless.  It breaks your heart and decimates your very soul.  It creates a stress like no other.  One that has you […]

Calling All List Lovers!

I love lists. I believe they keep me organized and on track, both on a daily basis, and for my long term goals.  If I were to be honest, they more often than not, save my sanity. So it was a no-brainer that when I began a new venture, the lists multiplied.  A lot.  For […]
