I Choose You #thisis38

Last night when my husband got home from work we had some deep conversation. I really love and appreciate the fact that we can do this. Get below the surface, say what is on our minds and value each other’s opinions.  This is part of a 3 day conversation that I started talking about yesterday […]

Me Too #thisis38

My husband was made aware of something over the weekend that lead us to some really deep and at times dark conversation. Men….you guys just don’t get it!  I mean honestly, for the most part, you just don’t get it. I am lucky enough to have a voice, a voice that I will use to […]

Family Divorce #thisis38

Yesterday my sister’s divorce was finalized.  Although, we had known it was in the works since January, I still had a really hard time.  Last week she let me know that it would in fact be final yesterday and that still didn’t really hit me. As soon as the text came through that it was […]

Adulting #thisis38

Yesterday my poor husband moved in a weird way and just like that his back gave out on him. 7 years ago when we met, he would have let that hold him down.  At least for the day that it happened, if not for some days afterward.  This isn’t how this man operates anymore though. […]

Mom Expectations #thisis38

(Time To Wine Podcast, check it out) Well, I have to say, I don’t feel much pressure from others to be a certain way. I […]

Parenting #thisis38

Yesterday was our weeknight at church. Every week we go to church on Wednesdays for dinner, then the kids have activities. We are there for a couple of hours. Church is my home away from home. I’ve been going to the same church my entire life. My best friends in the world go there, my […]

Finally Happy #thisis38

For years I worked and worked. For years I cried on the inside mostly, on the outside some. I thought if I just did more of X added some of Z and less of Y, that I would be better in no time. I spent years of therapy, years of journaling (blogging), reading self care […]

Long Time #thisis38

I realized yesterday that I haven’t posted in awhile. It’s not because I have nothing to say, it’s because life is going to swimmingly that I just haven’t. Since the kids got back to school, I’ve been back to work. Professional grocery shopping that it #shiptlife. I’m earning a living for my family while being […]
