The time has come again for us to finish out another year with family, friends, food, and sometimes gifts. I look back at 2018 in amazement of all that has happened and everything that didn't.

I've been trying to find my way, moving around a lot. Changing my mind. Making decisions. Life was a little fuzzy. I'd like to say I was growing the whole time, but there were moments of silence when my heart couldn't handle the sound of life. Silence is a strange friend.

I believe the term 'guts' as it is used in this phrase, refers to an individuals emotional state as it relates to doing something that is either uncomfortable, unfamiliar, or frightening. Having … Continue reading No Guts, no glory.
I am and probably will always be a family oriented person. My family means so much to me. Growing up, I was the care giver. Or at least I thought I was. Lol. I was the middle child and wanted to always be there to protect my older sister and younger brother. I was the … Continue reading Taking Care of Home
When I was a little girl (how all fairy tales begin) I dreamt of having my own life. I know that sounds crazy, but I've always felt so attached to other people's lives. I wanted to be able to have and influence my own. That might sound a little crazy, but I was the … Continue reading Why I Blog?

Either way, a part of me is excited for this last month of summer and another part of me is excited for the fall to start coming in! I love the fall!
