Happy New Year everyone! Hopefully, everyone has had a restful, restorative holiday with their families. That's how people describe holidays right? Restful and restorative? I kid. So far my new year has been great and I have been able to do a lot of self-reflecting. I will post more about that on my new blog … Continue reading The Not So Likely Spinster.
I've been MIA from blogging and writing. Completely. There have been a lot of transitions happening lately and it has been throwing me off. All of which are incredible and I'm so grateful for, but I'm also trying to figure out my balance.

I have been extremely quiet for the last two months. In fact, I honestly cannot remember the last time I sat down to write a blog post. To be honest I lost my spark for writing for this blog. I felt my voice changing and moving in a new direction and I wasn't sure if … Continue reading What’s Next?

My old man dog died in October of last year and it was a terribly painful experience for me. I cried for like three days straight. Even now typing those words make me really sad. I had decided I either wanted to foster or adopt a dog but I was DEFINITELY going to wait until the … Continue reading How Adopting a Dog Changed Me
I truly believe that most people have good intentions. Sure there are a few "bad apples" out there but I think for the most part people have really good intentions. However, just because we say or do something with good intentions does not mean that it is good for someone else. I was listening to … Continue reading The Insensitive Shit We Unintentionally Say
The other day as I was reading Danielle LaPorte's book White Hot Truth That's your responsibility as a person, as a human being- to constantly be updating your positions on as many things as possible. And if you don't contradict yourself on a regular basis, then you're not thinking. --Malcolm Gladwell I had to contain myself … Continue reading I Reserve the Right to Change My Mind
As it is now the New Year and almost my 30th birthday I felt the need to write. I already wrote this post once and it was completely different. It was pretentious and it sounded like I knew stuff. I do not. It was titled "30 lessons over 30 years." I wrote it, … Continue reading Obligatory New Year’s/30th Birthday Post
