The Versions of You

The Versions of You

Growing up, I would say quite confidently I was a pistol.  A firecracker.  A sassy mc-sass capital S sassy pot.  I spoke so soon, listened rarely, and my opinions about everything were 100% solid.  It was only when I began having “girl trouble” around age twelve that...

The Corners

I posted this two years ago, but it seemed to me the timing was right to share it again, in a new way.  I've learned to trust those little nudges. 😊 ************************   I was walking on the beach, the sun on my face and salt in the air.  To my right there...

The Expanding of Your Soul

The Expanding of Your Soul

I was a basketball player. Like, a pretty decent basketball player.  There were all star teams and all tournament teams and records broken and the like.  To date, stepping on the court in my younger years is still one of the greatest highs of my life. In the fall of...

Head in the Clouds

Head in the Clouds

I've had vivid dreams as long as I can remember. Vivid. A few years ago, they came back with an unearthly force, and to be honest I can only attribute some of the bizarre dream experiences as some kind of spiritual...something.  I would dream of people I was deeply...

Words & Art | Worthy

I've always had a soft spot for words and art.  I am not typically, however, drawn to word art. Words came to me much earlier in my life, as I wrote my first short story before I was in the second grade.  Art, though, specifically paintings, came much later.  It was...

Creating To Share vs. Sharing What You Create

Wonder | 2020

Annnnd Happy New Year! The month of December went hurtling past, as I was sick-ish all month long.  All is well, and tests were clear and Christmas was just as magical...it was just FAST. The under-the-weather vibe did bring with it a sense of slowing down, and really...

Slowing Down

Slowing Down

I suppose slowing down is on my mind as social media feeds are flooded with holiday projects and gorgeous homes and the lists form in a million different ways.  I suppose it's because 2020 has been, well, 2020.  I also suppose it only matters to me, really, what I...

On Goodbyes and Remembrance

I've been thinking a lot lately about writing. I have always thought about writing.  Even when I'm writing I'm thinking about what I will be writing next.  I make notes on my phone, I record quick voice messages to myself, I write a quick paragraph aloud as I watch...

Our New House!

Well, we did it. We built a house and moved to Auburn, Alabama.  This man I write about, me, & our three little humans.  If you follow me over on Instagram, this is no shock.  But if not, surprise! 😉 While leaving the house I'd been in for 17 years was emotional,...

Hi!  If you’d like to start and read The Middle in sequential order, start here! This book is written wildly, chapters out of order in the sequence they occurred in my life.  They are written wildly for a reason.  The middle of our lives is a lot of things, but it is...

Living Room Design Board

A new house post!  And better yet, a living room design board.  I know, I feel the same way.  It's exciting to be writing again, on Instagram, and here, and sharing the progress of our new house build is a sort of delectable icing on the cake. As we began our build, I...
