The thought running through my mind lately is “be a little kinder than you need to.” I say it to myself when I need the reminder, because sometimes it’s not the first thing on my mind. But it’s on my mind so much because I see it in others. Lately I’ve encountered people that have … Continue reading Be a little kinder than you need to.
My grandmother is what I'd call a firecracker. She's smart as a tack and just as feisty. She's the strongest woman I've ever known. She had such a huge role in my upbringing that I know I wouldn't be here without here. And I don't mean "here" as in where I am in life, I … Continue reading Be A Good Person.

I don't know what it's like to have a little girl and I might never know, but in the last four years of raising my son I've frequently said if I was to ever only have one child, I am so glad he's a boy. I knew Jase was a boy before the ultrasound told … Continue reading Being a Boy Mom.
Day three of my writing challenge got pushed back because (surprise surprise) I was too busy to take the time to do it yesterday. I probably could've written something, but not something meaningful. Day three of this challenge is a letter to my son. It seems easy at first, but how am I supposed to … Continue reading A Letter To My Son.
Anyone who knows me at all knows I love quotes. I post them on my stories so often it's probably obviously, but what a lot of people don't know is I almost collect them.
