Damn it, Donald

Dear Mr. President, I like to think of myself as an understanding and compassionate individual. I try to be fair when looking at a controversial situation; I truly want to see the other side.  To have an understanding of what has prompted a given response.  But, you sir, are making it extremely difficult to extend … Continue reading Damn it, Donald

Sober

I woke up to tragedy happening around the world. Terrorist attack in London. Turmoil in Midwest, USA. ...to comment or not to comment. I find myself debating: should I keep my mouth shut or speak my heart.  I mean, who really cares what some midwest momma thinks?  Not sure. I know that speaking on controversial … Continue reading Sober

#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

Promiscuous Promises

I have inevitably become the mother I swore I never would.  Feel free to gasp appallingly here, I know I did. I am acutely aware of the fact that time passes and all too quickly a moment becomes a memory.  As a result, I am that person who is overly obsessed with the camera; an … Continue reading Promiscuous Promises
