Blogging Laryngitis

You know that feeling when you have laryngitis? Straining to make noises, a sore/achy throat, and feeling the effects of vocal fatigue? You know that you should probably rest your voice, even though you have a lot to say? That’s how I’ve felt lately with my blogging. I have said so many things on my […]

Me

Not Myself

Suppose I said I am on my best behavior And there are times I lose my worried mind Would you want me when I’m not myself? Wait it out while I am someone else? Suppose I said Colors change for no good reason And words will go From poetry to prose¬† And I, in time, […]

Not a Mommy Blogger

Since I’ve been living in Utah again, I’ve had lots of opportunities to meet fellow bloggers. Combined with the blogging conferences I’ve attended over the last 2 years, I’ve made some amazing contacts. Some are photography bloggers, some are adoption advocates, some do professional blogging on behalf of businesses. Last week I attended a meetup […]

Is It Worth It?

Is it worth it to ask for help? Is it worth it to try and try and fail every time? Is it worth pouring your heart out, if you aren’t strong enough to handle rejection or silence? Or if your honest pleas for emotional support are met with nonchalance…because eventually you’ll be able to snap […]

I feel like my life is a constant state of change, and so many elements are beyond my control. When I am in a depressive episode (nearly a year now), I […]

10 Years Ago

Much of my blog is based around my dear husband Taylor. Sometimes I mention him ad nauseum. He’s honestly the best thing to ever happen to me. But did you know I had a life before Taylor? Did you know that in my first semester at Ricks College in Rexburg, Idaho, I met a boy, […]

6 Months in Michigan

I can hardly believe that our family has been living in Michigan for 6 months now! Here are a few of my favorite things about living here: -Living in the same state as my husband!-Fireflies!!! (Rosie and I counted over 70 of them last night)-Diet Vernor’s Ginger Ale-Partying with the Pearces-Leo’s Coney Island-Mike, Erin and […]

I just don’t really know what to say…

With news like this …it’s hard to be optimistic about the future of my husband’s career. I have no idea if my husband will be out of a job by the time the NWA/Delta merger happens. But with all the regionals that have gone under in the last two months, it doesn’t look good for […]

Rundown of Friday-day

I woke up feeling a bit icky, stomach flu or something. My body protested and protested to get up. But I finally did, had to get Rosie ready to go to Idaho for the weekend. Steve slept in, and wanted to meet me at work, so I met him there and said goodbye to Rosie. […]
