I heard about a study that found people who lie use more words overall than people who tell the truth. Makes sense, right? The truth doesn’t need… Continue reading There is NO Safe Zone!
So a holiday is coming up. I won’t go into the sordid history of the “relationship” between indigenous people and pilgrims but the general message we’re supposed to get out of this holiday is to be grateful for the blessings you have received and to break bread with family and friends alike. Sometimes, it’s hard… Continue reading 7 Ways to Practice Gratitude
On March 13, 2017 I found out that I was pregnant. Within a week or so, I found out we were having twins. Around April 15th, we were able to see our little gummy bears moving around in utero looking like Yin and Yang. When we went to our appointment in May, we saw our… Continue reading 11/17/17

What’s your happy place? The place you go where you feel at your best, your joy level is at it’s highest and you try to go as often as possible just to meet that need? For me, that place is Central Florida. I know Disney is typically deemed the “happiest place on earth” and though… Continue reading Happiest, Saddest Place…

I think experiencing perinatal loss makes you keenly… Continue reading 7 Times You Just KNOW You’d be a Better Momma
Provocative titles get more lookie-loos so, Welcome! So… can we have an honest discussion?

Sure, there’s therapy, there’s avoidance, there’s journaling and rituals, there’s even hospitalization if… Continue reading Poppin’ Pills & Bottles!
