October

Has it really almost been a month since I published a blog post? I'm sorry, y'all. October has me in its snare again. Every year I get weird. I get sad, depressed, angry and pull inward.

Thrive where you are planted

Often over the past two years I sometimes found myself questioning why things went down the way they did.

Making Memories & New Beginnings

I took this photo last night and though it's not the best photo, it captures a memory.  I have a special connection to photographs....I mean, that sounds lame, everyone has a special connection to photographs, if we didn't we wouldn't have cameras on all our devices, right?  I am a writer first and a photographer… Continue reading Making Memories & New Beginnings

Thoughts on my Wedding Anniversary

I'm a person who gets stressed and depressed about things before they happen.  I think I anticipate the way I'm going to feel on a certain milestone or date and get all my emotional processing done ahead of time.  Over achiever? Yeah, pretty much. I've been a little stressed and sad this week because today… Continue reading Thoughts on my Wedding Anniversary

No one escapes a small town

One of the best and worst things about dating when you live in a small city is.....well, dating in a small city.
