The End of an Era

Last week I sat on my friend’s carpet drinking wine and catching up. It was the same house our group of friends have spent many nights in, celebrating various milestones, birthdays, and baby showers. A few of our friends were missing, that’s to be expected these days. Where we used to be a tight knit…

Family

Sunday we celebrated new beginnings.  Little Logan,  baby Ashley Rose, and the “new cousin” Quinton.  It was a beautiful day with our family. Couldn’t be happier:)  

My poor, neglected bloggitty blog blog.

I’ve been a bad blogger. I think there are extremes that lead to writer’s block, having nothing to write about and, the much more complicated opposite, having infinitely more to write about. These days, my life definitely falls into the latter category. There are 13 days until my wedding and every hour is filled with…

Wombs and weepy feelings

Very early this year I shared this blog with ya’ll: The mystery of our wombs . I felt clumsy writing it, I wasn’t sure if it was my place to write about a third party experience when the battle itself was so fresh for so many. This is a follow up. Yesterday afternoon I stopped by…

I went camping and lived to tell about it!

For years, my friend Kate has tried to drag me, against my will, into what she would call The Great Outdoors. By means of hiking, camping, or general wandering, she has used all means of mind powers to get me to accompany her on these escapades. For nearly five years I have declined countless invitations…

The Piano Man

I had all of the starts of a  terrible, horrible,  no good, very bad day on May 18th (if you picked up on that literary reference, your childhood was awesome).  Somehow I had managed to break my car key IN HALF, thus locking all of my tools for work in my car. Now, when you…

The white owl and the Trampage

The last week has been I.N.S.A.N.E. After my last post about Sugar Baby, the little Maltese Aly and I found on the freeway, momentum has been non-stop. If we are going to be honest, the vortex started before that. Life is both nutty and wonderful.  A couple of months ago Aly, Kate and I took…

She is the cutest thing I have ever seen.

I had one major goal for today. I only wanted to make it out of work before the sun set. I have been on a work spree from the heavens and I was desperate to feel the sun on my face. It all panned out that Aly and I were off about the same time…

You are so very valuable!

First of all, I would like to say a big, fat thank you to you guys! I made a deal with myself at the beginning of this silly blog that if I made it to 25 posts with any margin of success, I would purchase my domain for the site. Well, The Art of the…

The Art of the Start Over

My girlfriend told me today about a friend of hers that just broke up with her boyfriend of seven years. They had started dating right out of high school and this poor girl was devastated by the concept of starting her life over as an adult.  After the break up she had literally gone on…

There is a right way and a wrong way…

I have had a few people tell me that they have been inspired by my big break up last year and have since dumped their mates in search of the dating bliss I have found. This is honestly one of the most horrifying things I have ever heard. While I am flattered (and somewhat mystified) that…

The mystery of our wombs

A few weeks ago one of my dear friends came to see me for a bit of “hairapy”. Being friends for nearly a decade I already knew that she had been facing one of the most challenging seasons of her life. Leading to her appointment I wasn’t sure that I would have the words in…
