DAY 3 & DAY 4

I’m writing this in the last hour of our 6.5 hour flight home. The flight is usually around 5 hours, but some inclement weather in the Midwest meant we had to take a detour. I’m tired. I’m hungry. And I’m ready to sleep in my own bed, honey. Okay, so day 3 was supposed to... Continue Reading →

It’s. Ok. To. Not. Be. Ok.

Lately I’ve been feeling inspired to try out different recipes. I like cooking my own food because it makes me feel in control of my own nutrition. It’s much easier to just order take out and be done with it, but I like the feeling of accomplishment. I like inviting people over and having them... Continue Reading →

Let’s. Open. Windows.

Hello to all of my blog readers!  Another beautiful week is upon us. I had a pretty relaxing weekend, so I’m ready to hit the ground running and I hope you are too.  If you haven’t had a chance to check out my podcast, what the heck are you waiting for? It has been such... Continue Reading →

I went through a series of emotions. Anger. Frustration. Sadness. Fear. Absolute terror. How could this be? What the hell is... Continue Reading →

Que. Viva. El. Amor.

Friday will be here before we know it.  First of all - a special thank you to all of the people who reached out with messages of love and support after I poured myself... Continue Reading →

I. Choose. Happiness.

It was twelve years ago now that I seriously contemplated driving my car into the center divider of the 105 freeway. I was crying, I was tired, and I had no idea why I felt this way. A million thoughts raced through my head. I didn’t call anyone to ask for help, I held on... Continue Reading →

Onward. And. Upward.

It has been about two years since I started this blog. It wasn’t always public. I spent the first year in the shadows - hiding from other people and not writing very often. Maybe once a month I would force myself to draft something up. A handful of my first entries never made the cut... Continue Reading →
