Every time I leave the house (which, let's face it, isn't a lot. I'm a SaHM in a one-car family) I feel a little worse about myself. When we lived in Kansas, this wasn't true. In Kansas people looked at me like I was some sort of goddess. Now that we're back home in good ol' Utah... we're surrounded by the plethora of gorgeous women that Utah water (that's my best guess) seems to produce. I've read several sources that say Utah has the most beautiful women in the country. Maybe that's true, maybe it's not, but from the limited... Continue reading

I'll admit it, I think I'm kinda pretty. I look a little bit like my mom did when she was in high school, a little bit like each of my beautiful sisters, and a little bit independently me. I wouldn't consider myself the natural kind of beautiful - I require intense amounts of makeup, hair dye, and straightening. I definitely haven't always been beautiful - In school I was the very definition of "awkward teenager". But, as a 25-year-old woman, I think I'm decently pretty. Trouble is... pretty isn't enough. Pretty doesn't come close to being enough, and I am... Continue reading

I need to mention that I am not against formula-feeding, and don't mean to sound like I only support breastfeeding. I personally don't want to feed my babies formula because of the struggle they have had with allergies and the inability to digest it, and because I love the experience of nursing a baby. Bonding like that makes me happy and I'm going to miss it, that's all I'm trying to say.

I was 18 years old when I had my first child. He was 6 lbs 14 oz, absolutely gorgeous, and a complete surprise. Me - 2003 - 18 years old A senior in high school, I traveled 5.4 miles on the school bus, huge and pregnant, which is where I met my husband. 9 months pregnant, hair in a ponytail, exhausted and nauseated, he still found me intriguing. I of course didn't start dating him then, but that is when we met. After 6 weeks maternity leave, to my surprise he was the one I was most anxious to see... Continue reading

Last night as my husband, a US Army veteran, and I read the news, we were sickened by an article about the obscene number of military service members who have committed suicide already this year. I know from a very personal perspective how the military can mess with the minds of their soldiers, and how hard depression hits them. They do their best and sacrifice almost everything a civilian life has to offer in order to serve their country, only to end up tossed around and unappreciated by their fellow countrymen - and even their fellow soldiers and veterans. Once... Continue reading

Where should we go from here? Does time really heal? Or is it purely self-imposed? Does the nature of the crime really matter... Or is it just the fact that you can never redeem your image Once you have allowed it to be damaged? Is there anything that could be done? Or am I going to be here forever, On my knees, scared of the end result? What do we need? What must we do to bring us back together... Or is it not even an option? My mind won't stop spinning... It haunts me day and night and keeps... Continue reading

Phone!!!! I am currently going without my phone right now, and I'm going completely out of my mind. No friends, no communication... I am an incredibly social person, so it really doesn't work for me to go without. E-mail, though, I could be ok with giving up for a while. Continue reading

Lately I am consumed with the feeling that even our greatest efforts will never measure up to the most average expectations of our loved ones. We spend our lifetimes working up to joining with another human in some form of partnership, only to find out when we get there: it isn't enough. We still need other things. Once we realize we are still incomplete, we start to blame. That other person must not be doing enough for us, they must not be fulfilling their "half" of the partnership. What moves us into the awareness of others' inability to fulfill us?... Continue reading

As a child, I was 100% positive when I grew up I would be an actress. Broadway, television, film - there would be no limit for me. I would dazzle the world with my ability to make them laugh and cry and go home happier - and, let's face it, entertained. Cultured, even. I told everyone I was going to be just like Audrey Hepburn, and I spent all my time and energy performing in community theater - until one day I discovered a tragic fact about myself: I didn't have an ounce of talent. In fact, no one in... Continue reading
