Standing Up For Joy

Christmas season is both a joy and a stressor. Let’s be honest, as much as we want to pretend things are great, trying to purchase all the gifts AND pick up groceries AND clean the house AND cook before family comes over adds up to a pretty hectic time of year. It’s so easy to [Read more...]

Family Tradition

Growing up, my favorite holiday tradition was heading to the Hallmark store and picking out a new ornament for the Christmas tree. I still remember the first ornament I got to pick out. It’s a cute little fox standing on its hind legs, holding a golden 1996. I can’t tell you why I picked it, [Read more...]

Parents Playing Nice

Divorce is typically not someone’s first choice of outcome when they get married. However, sometimes things don’t go as planned and divorce becomes a part of the story.

Let The Fight Happen

Relationships are really great. Whether they are romantic or platonic, finding someone you enjoy being around feels good. You begin to connect on different levels, create inside jokes, and learn that it’s ok to be just as weird in front of them as you are in front of your dog.

It’s OK To Not Be OK

My current season of life is rough. Some days, I find my only victory is getting dressed. Self-care no longer looks like getting my nails done and sipping my favorite quad-venti upside-down caramel macchiato. Self-care looks like taking a shower or cooking instead of ordering from Door  Dash. It’s becoming harder and harder to keep [Read more...]

Masking Mental Illness

Recently, I was shocked to hear about the passing of one of my favorite designers, Kate Spade. To me, she had it all going for her.
