Home Sweet Home

Home Sweet Home

Let me tell you a story...a true story. In June of last year I put a contract on a home. Having previously purchased an inventory home years ago, this time I had the opportunity to customize it just the way I wanted it. I was beyond excited. My parents went with me to the design center and they helped me pick out cabinet colors, granite, tile colors, kitchen backsplash, etc. The list goes on and on but when it was all said and done, my home was ………………………

Take Me Back to Cape Town: Travel Blog

Take Me Back to Cape Town: Travel Blog

I have fallen in love with Cape Town. The spirit and resilience of the people, the culture, and the political and racial challenges still present today are all things that resonated with me and have given me much to ponder over. The friendships I made on this trip were certainly the icing on the cake. To meet women from all over and share memories.........

I spent so many years focused on things that brought me temporary happiness that I just didn't have the focus needed to be a successful author.

Dear Dreamer - Farewell 2015

I couldn’t think of a better way to end a year of blogging than to write a letter of you. We may have never met in real life but I’m pretty sure we have some things in common, from moments of feeling immense joy to seasons of feeling completely lost. There’s this tendency to feel like no one understands our pain or our frustrations in life, but really, if we peeled the layers of pride away, we would all learn that we indeed share more than we realize. So, before I go any further, I want to remind you that you aren’t alone.
