This was meant to be written days ago… well actually about a week ago… but life just got a little bit in the way! I guess that’s what happens when you 50 hour weeks. This past weekend, my best friend, Elayna, graced us with her presence. She came into town to attend a weekend-long seminar… Continue reading The (small) Reunion
It's Father's Day eve and after getting all three kiddos in bed, I find myself in front of the computer contemplating what Father's Day has become. Interestingly enough, the day has shifted towards celebrating my husband and the wonderful father that he is to our 3 little ones. It is a day to be celebrated,… Continue reading Another Father’s Day…
I write to escape my reality. That's really all there is to it. It's not that I hate the reality in which I live, it's just really really hard sometimes. And to be honest, it kinda sucks at times, too. But I digress. Writing has given me a freedom to speak my mind and… Continue reading On My Way
It was the Spring of 1999. I was about 2 years into being really really REALLY into a little band called *NSYNC. I mean I was just about convinced that Justin Timberlake was going to be my lawfully wedded spouse one day and we'd live on a peaceful farm in the country, raising our 3 beautiful… Continue reading Change isn’t always good…
Dear Soror (Sister): I’m sorry. In 2008, I promised to be an active and engaged member of my sorority. I remember the feeling I had on that Easter Sunday morning. I was so proud to be joining an organization that so many inspirational women, both past and present, belong to. I along… Continue reading Dedicated to my Sisters…
As I sat with my husband, baby, and 5 year old son on New Year's Eve (who actually made it to midnight this year; the 4 year old conked out at around 9:30), I contemplated over the many blessings and trials that I had experience during 2015. Here's my end-of-the-year status update I posted on… Continue reading New Year, New Me
I had my first session today and overall, I'd say it went pretty well. I visited with a marriage and therapy therapist at our post's family life center and we discussed some of my main concerns. One thing that we focused on was my lack of focus on me and the overall feeling of inadequacy… Continue reading Lifting Myself Up
In the years since my Dad passed, I have experienced more disappointment and frustration than I have during my childhood and teenage years. The answer to why this was happening was quite simple: I was now an adult. I had to put away childish things and start "adulting" as they say. I found it odd… Continue reading Learning to Trust and Wait On Him
It's been about 3 weeks since my last post and there is a very good reason for it. In the last 3 weeks, I have been struck with just about every bit of bad luck a parent can experience. Week 1: I got sick. Any mom knows that being sick and having young children just… Continue reading Is there a light at the end of this tunnel?
I'm 30! I tell ya, September really snuck up on me there! And of course, all week I've been hearing funny things about my age... particularly from one Mr. Norman Davis, Jr. But I'm actually revel in the fact that I have officially left my 20s. I look forward to a new decade of fresh… Continue reading September 2.
