She’s a Glorious Mess.

I love that quote suggesting we have the right to be a masterpiece and a continuous work in progress simultaneously. What a relief, chasing that worn out image of perfection is exhausting and after years of pursuit, I've found is nonexistent anyway. Why are we always putting so much pressure on ourselves and each other?... Continue Reading →

Breathing You In

It was my greatest heartache, a moment that I knew would forever change my life. I did my best to smile, to remember how blessed I’ve been for so many years, but I couldn’t escape the burning embers that had become a permanent element of my heart. Then you made me laugh.

Curious Moments

Welcome to West Virginia

I was nervous about the long distance I was traveling alone, even though it was what I wanted, it was still scary. I was fearful of car trouble and every possible freak scenario I could imagine. I thought maybe if I considered even the wildest situations I would be more prepared to handle them. But... Continue Reading →
