A good cry, an ugly cry was sneaking up on me. There was a little lump in my throat, small tear here and there, and deep sighs galore. So I got my jammies on, got a glass of water and... Continue reading

Divorce sucks; I know. I think Elizabeth Gilbert put it best when she said “it’s like being in a really bad car accident every single day for about two years.” It nearly killed me multiple times. I have come through... Continue reading

(Word of warning: this is mushy and gushy and lovey dovey, and there is almost no point to it except to express my absolute, unending adoration for Him and His sweet kisses. Also, no pictures again, because this is not... Continue reading

Sometimes coming to someone I love who generally has all the right answers and telling them my Big Overwhelming Problem and hearing them say “I don’t know” is extremely helpful. I went to a friend the other night all tense... Continue reading
