At the root of it all, like for real, when you get down to the very bare minimum and the basics, we're all out here just trying to be loved. Unfortunately, a lot of us....too many of us are going about it....finding love..the wrong way. Shit is powerful when you think about it. What DRIVES... Continue Reading →
Am I Looking Forward to 2017?
2017 will mark the 30th year of life for me. Needless to say, I am absolutely dreading it. I'm not having a big party (as I have always envisioned) because my money is STILL funny and if I can't do it epically (new word I made up) then I don't want to do it at... Continue Reading →
I'm back.... For the past five weeks or so, I've been in a complete mental fog. Teetering between the lines of not giving a fuck and giving too many. I haven't been writing lately because my creative juices have been blocked by some invisible force. Maybe it's the negative feelings that I've been having of... Continue Reading →

I chaperoned my 8-year-old daughter’s 3rd grade field trip to the High Museum of Art this past week and let’s just say, as a 29-year-old mother of three, I don’t know if I’m supposed to wear mom jeans or not. Nope, I don’t mean the new stylish, fit and make you look sexy mom... Continue Reading →
Our 5th Anniversary ( A picture post)
There are no words to explain the depth of love that I have for you. But only to the best of my natural ability will I formulate the words so that I can create the most accurate visual of what I so deeply feel for you. Only because of you I live. Breath is given... Continue Reading →
Unfortunately, I’m a working mom
I've been off from work (due to a surgery) going on 4 weeks. Although, I was restricted from doing some activities, such as heavy lifting and driving, I've loved being at home. Simply because I can get things done and still have some of my day left. My kids become a priority and in turn,... Continue Reading →
Why I Stayed: Life After Infidelity
I didn’t stop instantly loving him like I wanted to. Like I thought I could. The years we’d been together, the memories created, the love shared, and the vows spoken didn’t just *poof* and go away like I expected it to. I was angry, hurt, pissed, and disappointed, but I’ll be damned if... Continue Reading →
It is totally unfair that as a woman I do not get a break. I have to keep my super woman cape on. I have to put on a brave face every single day and face the cruel world. We do not get the luxury of walking away....of taking a breath and starting over.... Continue Reading →
When the pieces start to fall back into place….
"Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you." -Colossians 3:13 My brother has not spoken to our (biological) dad in close to five years. For reasons that I, as his sister totally understand and that others may not think as... Continue Reading →
