Persistence

So…I’m pretty sure that I’m head over heels in love with Rachel Hollis. If you don’t know this author, you want to. Her last book “Girl, wash your face” kicked me right in the feels. Obviously, I pre-ordered her next book, “Girl, Stop Apologizing”, and you guys… it is fucking […]

Kiss Me, I’m sort of Irish

Ancestry kits have become increasing popular over the years. You can actually buy one while standing in line at Walgreen’s for your monthly prescription or you can order from various companies online. The successful marketing of these products proves we all have this need to know where we came from […]

Defeated

Defeated. Done. Game over. That’s exactly how I have felt lately. “Why?” People ask me this so casually, as if there could be only one thing that’s got me down. I imagine in a mind that does not suffer from depression the answer would be something simple that surely could be remedied with […]

Everything Is Not Everything

It is true that compromise is sometimes down right necessary. In any career, in relationships, and especially in love. However, sometimes it does actually hurt more to bend than to just break.

Toxicity

Toxicity – the quality of being toxic or poisonous. What do you think of when you hear the word “toxic”? Most of us imagine material things like waste, products we shouldn’t have in our home, chemicals, pollution, etc. We wouldn’t go into a store and buy something that is labeled TOXIC. […]

Life Goals for the Living

Last weekend I flew to California to meet my big sister for Ohana Fest in Dana Point, CA. It was well worth the miles! Some bands I had never heard of and some I had treasured for years, & of course Eddie Vedder (insert heart with arrow in guitar here). On […]

The Fetus of Procrastination

Here’s what I’ve been up to over the last 9 months for inquiring minds who’d like to know. January 2, 2018 – I bought a slice of the American Dream and became a first time homeowner! A two-story townhouse style condo with mountain views, and it couldn’t be more perfect. […]
