Douse me in water as the shrouds of comfort envelop my soul. Sweet scented bliss leaves me unhinged on the cusp of an awakening. The end of the year is here. Reflect on all the things that have happened. A thought is only tangible on the other side of the mirror. Release the pain and… Continue reading Bath time writing…
We are almost halfway through the final month of the year and I am not sure about you, but I have been doing a lot of self reflection. Every December, I start making a new journal for the new year. I actually start writing in it one month early, usually around this time. Last December,… Continue reading Thrive (thoughts on 2017)
Warning: This post is very wordy, apparently we have a lot to say about PCOS! In the past week I have had numerous friends vent their frustrations about PCOS or polycystic ovarian syndrome. In a society that is so focused on feminine beauty, it can be hard to live with a hormonal imbalance that makes women… Continue reading A chat about PCOS
If you have never seen the movie called "The Family Stone," I highly recommend it. It is my all time favorite holiday movie, because of the chaos that is family and the emotional context that is portrayed in nearly every scene. We see Meredith (Sarah Jessica Parker), a high strung career woman initially fail to… Continue reading Smoke and mirrors in the living room

Michelle has lost a total of 130 pounds and I had to pick her brain on how she did it. Also, I am… Continue reading Meet Michelle (an interview- part 1)

The year is coming to an end, and with all the holidays and focus on family, it's hard to not get introspective about my own adoption story. ALL thoughts, feelings, stories and scenarios are purely my own and are not a… Continue reading Adapting and Adoption
I've had an interesting week, to say the least! Sadly, this weekend I have been sick and in bed most of the time. Tea, soup, some reading, and my favorite candle have helped. In addition to family snuggles, of course! R had to work for about 15 hours on Friday and 15 hours on Saturday,… Continue reading Sunday Musings…
Do you remember that spiritual buffet that I spoke of? Today, I am certainly "eating" from it. There are some things that I can't explain, some tangible feeling that is so deeply rooted within my soul, my heart would just break if I didn't pause to listen. Some call that clairvoyance, some say phony, and… Continue reading Whispers of the heart
No, not the kind of detox where you throw a bunch of shit in a blender and pray to all that is holy that you lose 30 pounds by next Tuesday. I'm talking about an internet detox. You see, our internet and cable was cut off for three days this week. During those 3 days,… Continue reading Detox.
"If all the women who have been sexually harassed or assaulted wrote 'Me too.' as a status, we might give people a sense of the magnitude of the problem.” I saw the status going around online. And I felt a big stone drop into my stomach. My throat was dry and I sort of froze.… Continue reading Me, too.
