A Love Letter to my Tribe

A Love Letter to my Tribe

The last two months have been quite a transition for me. Although I can’t speak about it yet, I am so grateful to have my tribe. I am so appreciative of the women in my life, because they are part of my friend ecosystem. Their diversity of perspectives and interactions makes them exactly what I [...]

I Don’t Need Permission- A Hair Story

I Don’t Need Permission- A Hair Story

I know I am a woman. I know it for sure. I have never questioned my femininity and my attractiveness. I birthed two babies from this body. I identify as female and my pronouns of choice are she/her. I know I am not everyone’s cup of tea (then again, who is everyone’s cup of tea), [...]

A Snowy January Day

A Snowy January Day

Today turned out beautifully. I woke up with the plan to simply do some organizing. The universe heard my plea and granted me a visit from mom who helped me a bit. Even though all I wanted to was sleep, I allowed my daughter to convince me to go out to play in the snow—although [...]

What I Really Did on New Year’s Eve 2019

What I Really Did on New Year’s Eve 2019

Well, happy New Year everyone. We’ve made it into a new year. I am sure many of you celebrated, whether it was at a party with friends and/or family or just a quiet time at home. Some people like to go all out, but I like to make New Year’s Eve a low key key [...]

Happy Holidays

Happy Holidays

Happy Holidays from my family to yours. I know that the holidays are a time for family, sharing and giving. A time to reflect on what has passed in anticipation of what is to come. I want us to remember those who are not in a place to celebrate in a way that evokes all [...]

Do I suck at making new friends?

Do I suck at making new friends?

Lately I have found myself stewing in a pot of questions. The one that stands out the most is, “Do I suck at making new friends?” I fall in the middle ground when it comes to making new friends. I know I am introverted—not shy—and connecting with people comes easily to me, because I have [...]

A Sigh of Relief

A Sigh of Relief

I am finally able to kick my feet up, because yesterday was my final for this semester. I am so relieved. I am so happy to get a break from the anxiety and stress. Someone, pour me a stiff drink, because I need one. I can finally get some time to take care of me [...]

Have a Good Close to the Weekend

Have a Good Close to the Weekend

I’ve been terrible lately. I am preparing for exams and have been very busy with my girls. Feeling overwhelmed can quickly lead to not doing or sometimes contributing to important things that include maintaining my blog. With that said, I hope you are enjoying some alone time and/or family filled weekends; whichever one you need [...]

Keeping it Small for Thanksgiving

Keeping it Small for Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is tomorrow and no matter what you feel about the holiday, you have to eat. I’m here primarily for the food, but I also feel happy to celebrate with a small family. The visuals of Thanksgiving in advertising is having lots of family over with lots of food; the hustle and bustle and the [...]
