Common Misconceptions

The problem with a "trending topic" is that it is just that. It is suddenly every where. Saturating media outlets and news feeds for days. Our views become skewed. We believe that the world is ending. We share our deepest secrets. Our innermost demons. Our traumatic experiences. In depth. On public forums. In hopes of… Continue reading Common Misconceptions

Idle of Despair

"There are some things people don't deserve to know about you." Said with love from my honey and rolling around in my brain for months. I have debated discussing this topic. It's been written in my head a dozen times. I have jotted down the gist on multiple occasions. Each time, I have scratched it… Continue reading Idle of Despair

Status: Stalker

It doesn't take much for me to get excited.  It is about as easy as getting water out of a fountain. A water fountain, that is. "Is there another kind of fountain?" you ask. Um, yes... chocolate.  Chocolate fountain.  It is delicious and my mind always goes to chocolate.  But, I digress.  Back to excitement.… Continue reading Status: Stalker

#stophate Announcement!

#stophate has been weighing heavy on my heart.  For a lot of years.  But, more so recently.  I have never been sure what I could personally do.  I thought, "Let's open the dialogue." So, I started blogging about it. I realized that while communication is oh-so important, writing about #stophate just has not felt like… Continue reading #stophate Announcement!

Fade to Black

I {mostly} love being connected on social media.  Sure, it has its flaws, but everything does.  However, I must admit: it.exhausts.me. I really thought I had my scrolling under control.  I would check in "real quick" when kiddos were preoccupied or while dinner was simmering.  Sneak in a quick update during commercial breaks.  I figured I… Continue reading Fade to Black

Oops, I Did It Again

Damn it, y'all {and no, I am not southern, but the twang has a certain ring to a writer} this political biz-niss is making it real hard for a midwest blogger to keep quiet.   Donald Trump.  Woah, who just got angry from reading that first line?  But, if we are going to be fair,… Continue reading Oops, I Did It Again

No Words

Well, here I am about to comment on another 'news trending' topic.  I can't help it; my heart is heavy.   I have found myself reflecting over the last 48 hours since I heard the news in Charlottesville.  I must say I am speechless.  I don't quite know how to put into words the sadness… Continue reading No Words

Apples and Oranges

I had never heard of the Nordstrom Anniversary sale until this year.  Probably because I was never really on Instagram before and it seems to be all that the fashion bloggers are talking about.   Now, I will be the first to admit that I foolishly thought a sale meant discounted prices.  Not so.  I… Continue reading Apples and Oranges

Open Arms

I am not one who particularly enjoys posting on a 'hot to trot' topic like the ones currently trending on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook; but I feel that I have no choice given the hatred being spewed in oh- so -many directions. There are some days where I just want to ignore the news outlets… Continue reading Open Arms
