Well, now that’s awkward!

So, it’s been like a hundred years since I made a blog post. It humbles me to admit that it’s because I couldn’t remember my login and password.  Really. My face is red. I spend a lot of time reminding people to use password that are easy for YOU to remember but hard for someone to […]

Less is so totally More

After spending the time to clean up my Facebook feed removing topics/people that irritate me or make me irritable, I’ve found near bliss this morning when I opened up Facebook and saw posts of encouragement, beauty, determination and revelation. I’m not talking about Supreme Court decisions, this flag vs that flag and gloating or hating […]

I’m all about that…timing, bout that timing

I love how sometimes timing is everything. Without any knowledge of the SCOTUS decision coming today, last night, I had come to the conclusion that much of my FB newsfeed was toxic. Because of that, I went on a massive cleaning spree and shrunk my friends list and page likes down to only the people […]

We did it, we did it!

We moved to Arizona! Well, it was 3 months ago but it was traumatic. So it’s taken this long to recover. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! I’m trying to clean up my lists, pages and favorites as I have about 500 or more drafted posts that I started and never finished. Which, […]

That moment when it all comes together…

…is the moment you realize that you have been living a lie for most of your life. It’s depressing and nearly heartbreaking to realize that the majority of your life had been shaped by something that happened to you as a child or young adult. GET OVER IT!! Really. Not just me but everyone. No […]

Vitam agas vitam tuam

A few days ago, I was browsing Facebook. Like I do every hour night. One of my longest and dearest friends had made a post about the impending doom that is Obamacare. One of her friends disagreed and there was some back and forth. I’ve never been one to hold back, though I usually try to show […]
