I've been seeing, reading, and saying this motto recently Getting divorced sucks. Being divorced doesn't. I know, it's been a minute since I last wrote a blog post. I was really good there for a while, writing and publishing a post every week. Then The Gentleman happened. I'm no longer Single & Selfish....well, no longer… Continue reading It’s been a minute
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.

I love wildlife photography. When I got my camera everyone was asking if I was going to do portraits. People.

I edited this photo and named it… Continue reading Spider Cactus?

My sister is quite the photography artist - you can check her out at The Back Yard Bird Nerd and we really enjoy going on photography adventures from sun up to sun down, all over the wonderful nature centers and parks we… Continue reading When you think all is ruined….beauty
I thought it would be a great idea to have Christmas music playing in the background while I write, but then I remembered - Oh yeah, I can't write when I'm listening to music, or TV, or a podcast. My brain can't focus on input and output at the same time. So I've paused the… Continue reading It’s Christmas Eve!
What a wild week it's been! My Big Brother is visiting from out of State and he has brought his amazing girlfriend with him to introduce her to the family. We all concur that she is a keeper. We've never seen my brother so happy and she is a really cool chick to boot. I… Continue reading Blessings & Beer
I have a fire in my belly! A fire to invite the Law of Attraction into my life. It was sparked by manifesting the desire to write. I want to write for a living. I want to help people not only in the real outside world, as I do in my professional life, but I… Continue reading Law of Attraction
