She Survives

A member of my family was recently involved in a domestic assault.  And I don’t normally write about this very important topic, because to be honest, before last week I hadn’t had a whole lot of experiences of it firsthand.  But I write a lot about my personal life and the things that I care… Continue reading She Survives

23 Years of Adventure

Today I am celebrating twenty-three years of life. Twenty-three years of love. Twenty-three years of adventure. I heard my birth story from my aunt and grandmother a bunch of times growing up.

Since the birth of our children, nearly every decision we make will bring us a sense of guilt.
