Today is different for everyone. I’m thinking about those of you feeling conflicted today. I’m thinking about those of you feeling mournful today. I’m thinking about those of you still holding onto hope today. I see you. I’m rooting for you. I’ve been you. 💘
The US birthrate has dropped again, for the sixth straight year to be exact. But is that really a shocker? We all know that the economic climate in the United States has been volatile for quite some time, so I don't find this information to be all that staggering. What is interesting, though, is that… Continue reading No shocker here: There were more deaths than there were births in 2020
I’ve been sitting here for the last few hours trying to think of something to write about. I had a few lines of poetry flowing in and out of my head, but I don’t like to publish forced work. So instead, I’m just going to reflect on some things in my life that I’m thankful… Continue reading Remembering what I’m thankful for
I can't hardly stand to turn on the TV anymore. Most times I'm watching Netflix or Hulu, so I don't tune into the news, but every time I'm somewhere where the news is on, I say 'what the hell' and watch anyway. I like to be informed.

I never knew WordPress would mean this much to me. Thank you for following along, commenting, and making me… Continue reading Thank you for 10,000 views!
On evenings when I'm especially tired, I curl up on the couch and turn on the TV. I got onto an ABC 20/20 kick a few weeks back, and since then I've been watching old episodes of the show when I'm feeling like watching something with a little variety. If you've never seen ABC 20/20,… Continue reading Boeing 737 Max: Pay attention to the plane tickets you buy!!
I never thought those words were ever going to be able to come out of my mouth. We have been looking and waiting for our finances to come aligned for years now, and now is truly the time! We signed on with our realtor back in September of last year. We got pre-approved by the… Continue reading We’re buying a HOME!
Today is going to be a GOOD day. I can just feel it. My spidey senses are tingling and I am feeling oddly optimistic about the day that lies ahead. I'm back in the office today. Here lately we have only been coming in to the office two days a week, and Mondays and Thursdays… Continue reading Speak POSITIVITY into existence!! ✨✨
Humans are odd. Sometimes I have a hard time believing that other people are made of the same breed as I am. Some people are so mean, disgusting, awful… My sister started a new job probably about a month and a half ago. She works in a paint room painting gates and fence that welders… Continue reading Nasty people…
