A Decade of Lessons.

Time is a crazy thing, I am often unaware of it passing and then its gone. 2020 is fast approaching and with that comes all the excitement and promises of a fresh new year and decade as well as the reviews and playbacks of the past year and decade.

Realistic Expectations

I was raised Catholic. It is funny to say now as most people don't consider me very "Catholic" and I wonder what that means.

Living a life we love, managing stress and coping with anxiety

Another Year Older.

I was always told life goes faster the older you get but when I was younger I would always wish to be older... when can I be 16 and drive, when can I be 19 and legal, when will I grow up and own a home, have a career, be comfortable financially (still look forward... Continue Reading →

Start of School Reflections

With a new school year, and a fresh start for Rowen because we started a different preschool, I have been doing a lot of reflecting at the difference a year can make. I mean I know what a difference a year can make. I have had years of huge loss with family and friends passing... Continue Reading →
