My Homeless Short Story

On this #GivingTuesday, just a mere days after Thanksgiving I sit back and think about what I’m thankful for. Over the last few years, I’ve found it difficult to find the good in my life, because the bad has pulled blinders over my eyes and refused to allow me to see. That’s changing, and I’m doing… Read More My Homeless Short Story

The Star Movie: Not Your Average Review

“Here! Just take the f-ing honeybun and eat them all!” I said yesterday morning, to my 7-year-old. I was having another moment, a heated difficulty of balancing being a mom who needs to be attentive all the time and being punched in the gut once again by another job with little appreciation. In that moment, I… Read More The Star Movie: Not Your Average Review

The Timeline of Our Lives

This week, my 7-year old’s teacher, who’s beyond amazing by the way, assigned her a project. This project was simply called, “My Timeline,” and the idea was to find or draw 7 photos- one for each year- and to put it into a timeline format, adding a few words to each picture.

The Divided States Of America

I hate hate. I try and steer clear of the “political” and “hot topic” posts like these but, I feel this needs to be said. I will try to be respectful to anyone involved and know that this post is being made to try and move FORWARD, not to OFFEND. I hate how this country… Read More The Divided States Of America

Mental Health Awareness Day-My Story

It was one week after I had my first child, a daughter. I was still healing from the delivery and hadn’t heard from my estranged birth mother for over 24 hours. If you had known her, you’d know this was unusual. When I became a mother, I had a lot of doubts. Would I be… Read More Mental Health Awareness Day-My Story

Rocking The Double Life: Parent/Writer

It’s no secret writing is hard. A talent where one must enter into their mind and focus, well for some of us. Toss in a couple of kids who demand attention, need love and desire to only need these things from you when you’re writing; it’s a nightmare. Don’t fret. It IS possible to be… Read More Rocking The Double Life: Parent/Writer
