Just Say Yes

It was a rough start to the trip this morning. As we took off through a barricade of storms in Atlanta, the plane once again bobbed and weaved through the turbulence, sending me once again to the edge. Zero visibility blinded my view and brought on panic. Meanwhile, my brave daughter next to me could … More Just Say Yes

Up in the Air

*Fear of flying continues to be one of the most common anxieties today. I wrote this post a couple of months ago while flying home to Atlanta from Jacksonville, FL. I know that all you fearful flyers will be able to relate! I’m working on it…and I know you are too! With every flight I … More Up in the Air

What if You Fly?

The last time I flew in an airplane, I wrote my heart out for two hours straight. But when I failed to realize that my phone coverage didn’t extend beyond my home country, consequently, all was lost.   What I did realize, however, is that despite my loss, the benefit from the process still remained. … More What if You Fly?

A Loss of Words

I did it.  I wrote the most soulful, harrowing, genuine, clarity-filled post I had ever written.  And then I lost it.  As we prepared for our upcoming anniversary trip down here to Tulum, Mexico (where I sit at this very moment, absorbed in a tropical beach-dream come true), I had been planning to write this … More A Loss of Words

Pardon My French

I hesitated to write this post at first, but as I shuffled around speed-cleaning the house, the thoughts kept bubbling up, the words wanting to burst out of my head. So here I am, typing away instead of weeding through my children’s clothes to find the things they’ve outgrown (like I had planned). But as … More Pardon My French

The Longest Drive

I’m doing it again. I’m waiting for perfection. I haven’t blogged as near as much as I’ve wanted to, and besides lack of time (or reaching for the glass and wine and a blanket instead of the laptop) there’s really no good reason not to be writing more frequently. I’m beginning to think, however, that … More The Longest Drive

Panic with Purpose

I did it…I finally published my blog! Geez Louise, that took forever. If you are checking it out for the first time, I apologize for my lack of technical knowledge. I’ve been really trying to perfect my layout, website function, staying up way too late watching WordPress tutorials, blah blah blah. But my friend Kristen … More Panic with Purpose

Dizzy Days

The day is still young, but it has already surprised me. I went to bed too late (as a result of still navigating this blog thing!) and woke up feeling dizzy.  A few days a month, I will have these “dizzy days”.  Whether it’s from lack of sleep or a side-effect of medication, they generally … More Dizzy Days
