Just don't do it in someone's ear. Don't be that weirdo. It's been a long month. Things have happened that have made life difficult for me - emotionally, physically, and mentally. I took a break from writing, and quite frankly, a lot of other things as well (like kale and yoga). One thing that has … Continue reading Breathe, Loudly
Last weekend, I went to session two of the work on purpose fellowship and I discovered both my strengths and my values. To catch ya'll up: my top five strengths were harmony, communication, empathy, input and consistency. My top three values... are non-compliance (hahaha), physical health, and humor.

Yesterday, we moved into our big kids house - meaning not … Continue reading Turning a House into a Home

My husband, on the other hand, is the coolest cucumber you'll ever meet, and this has helped me grow. He always says to think about … Continue reading But…Will It Kill You?

If only I could go back in time and have 24-year-old me swat that prescription out of … Continue reading Pill Shmill: Why I Say NO to Birth Control
