Happy Thanksgiving

It's Thanksgiving, Y'all!  For those of you outside the US, Thanksgiving is a holiday that celebrates gratitude, family and time together.  It's a moment for us to acknowledge what we're grateful for and try not to talk too much politics or religion at the dinner table.  It's universally considered a successful holiday if no one… Continue reading Happy Thanksgiving

Two Years Ago Today….

Remember when I told y'all that I'm like Rain Man with dates?  It's both a blessing and a curse.  Two years ago today I came home (It was a Friday) and kicked my husband out of our home.  I'd found out he'd been lying about working, he'd been accused of committing a felony and he… Continue reading Two Years Ago Today….

Anniversaries & Milestones

Will my mind ever cease being an ever swirling pool of anniversaries and dates? I am like Rainman with dates and anniversaries.  They bubble up in my memory and I just can't help it. Today is a perfect example.  November 12th.  The day before my son's birthday.  The day 24 years ago that my ex… Continue reading Anniversaries & Milestones

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. I call it cocooning. I sort of wrap myself up in my apartment and don't want to talk. There's… Continue reading October

Let Go & Let Karma

When someone does something bad to us we want some kind of retribution, its human nature.  We hope somewhere deep inside that something similar is mirrored back to them in their lives.  Some of us wait for it, wringing our hands in anticipation for it to happen, cackling maniacally, preparing freshly popped and salted popcorn… Continue reading Let Go & Let Karma

Thrive where you are planted

Often over the past two years I sometimes found myself questioning why things went down the way they did. I have had times of quietly (sometimes not so quietly) demanding why God/The Universe/The Creator dumped a steaming pile of shit in my lap that I was solely in charge of cleaning up. Why suddenly at… Continue reading Thrive where you are planted

Seeing the past through a new lens

The last several weeks have given me an important opportunity.  I've had the opportunity for the very first time to look back at my marriage that ended almost two years ago with a fresh set of eyes and a brand new perspective. I saw a post earlier today that said it perfectly.  I don't know… Continue reading Seeing the past through a new lens

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. Let me explain, the city I live in is in the South and we are by all reasonable purposes not a super small city, but we still think we are.  So when I… Continue reading No one escapes a small town
