Holy moly we have friends people!!

I don’t know if anyone else feels this way, but I have found it ridiculously hard to meet people and to make friends post-graduation and pre-baby-having.  Domi and I both are blessed with some of the most incredible friends. It just so happens that the majority of them don’t live in the same state, or,…

PUT DOWN THE PHONE…and back away slowly

This past weekend my family was talking about how Millennials are some of the loneliest people in any generation and how we ended up that way by putting all of our attention in a tiny, little, battery-operated box instead of going out in the real world and meeting real people. It’s made it hard for…

A Weekend of Happy

Before you do anything, if you need a good giggle, check out my cousin and me back in '99 and guess which one of us had the gay dads (thanks cousin Cathy for the photo and cousin Austin for being ok with me sharing)...ok now back to our regularly scheduled programming... Social media is a…

Oh yay! I don’t have to be Superwoman!

There’s one specific phrase that everyone will repeat to you until they’re blue in the face. “You need to show up…

Sometimes you have to be the a**hole

I was talking to my Dad this morning on the phone on my way to the gym about a friend whom I have known since I was 13. Our friendship has changed. It seems to be out of date and not working anymore. You know those friends where you reach out to them on their…

You can have it all, just maybe not all at once…

I really, truly believe it is possible to have everything you want in life by believing you can, hard work and not giving up. The world is literally your oyster. However, I also think I would be remiss if I didn’t say I think it’s next to impossible to try and create the whole entire…

You are loved.

You are loved.  You are loved.  You are loved.  Don’t believe me? Repeat after me: I am loved.  Again.  I am loved. I am loved. I am loved. Say it seven times. I say that because I literally just googled "How many times does a person have to tell themselves something before they believe it"…
