What if I fly?

I had an interesting conversation last night with a great friend. I first met this person over the summer, he invited me to guest host on his podcast. It was exactly what my anxiety needed to freak out! Why the heck would this professional want me on his show?!?! I was terrified, until the day we recorded. He made me feel so comfortable and accepted. That’s a huge deal for me. Since that time, he’s become someone I respect, admire and look forward to interacting with, when time zones and schedules allow.

Shaking with Fear, Sharing my Truth


I posted a picture earlier this week. It was of me 8 weeks post-partum and one of me as of Sunday, October 29, 2017. The difference to me is shocking. It might not be to others but they don’t really know what is most shocking to me.

I’m about to tell you.

I’m extremely scared to tell this story but it’s been on my mind and in my head for too long. I need to release it and allow me to embrace and accept me.

Prior to discovering I was pregnant on July 4, 2015, I was self-destructing. Continue reading “Shaking with Fear, Sharing my Truth”

We the People, All people…


Why do I torture myself?

Why do I intentionally read about current events that I know will enrage me?

I’ll tell you why, because I’d rather be inform than be ignorant. I think many public officials should learn that lesson.

I feel like we’re being thrown so much sensationalism that we’re losing what truth is and used to be. We can no longer trust the words written and said because we can’t trust the people that provide the information. Continue reading “We the People, All people…”

Politics Do Not Define Me


I feel it necessary to make this known. I guess I haven’t been very obvious or forthcoming in my views and I would like to rectify that now.

I am registered as a Democrat. But I do not vote down party lines. As a human, I am a complex being. I do not think on a one dimensional level. My views change and grow just as I do. It is in thinking this way that I assume that others are the same way. Yes, yes I know what is said about assumptions but I think my thought process is valid.

It won’t last forever…..


How has the New Year of 2017 been for all of you?

For me it’s been non-stop. In my real-life, outside of my blogging world, I have not been able to catch a breath. I’ve worked long hours and have tried my hardest to squeeze as many hours as I can out of the day to spend with my husband and daughter. 24 hours is not enough time.

I’m grateful for my mother during this time, more so than I am at any other time. If it cannot be me who is spending quality hours with my child then I am comforted by the fact that it is my mother. She is catching the smiles and milestones on camera. It’s with great sadness that I think the first time I see my daughter walk that it will be on film because I’ll be at work.
