  • Great Expectations.

    If there is one thing that motherhood has taught me, it’s keeping my expectations in check. Sometimes I think I know exactly what my kids want or will like and I am just so far off it’s almost laughable. For Riley’s birthday last week we took him to Disneyland and California Adventure. I was absolutely […]

  • Heavy.

    Welp. The end of 2019 truly tested me. I feel bad whenever people ask me how the holidays were, because I’ve been pretty frank about it. Between December 21st and January 1st, four people that I know died. My cousin, my great aunt on my mom’s side, my great aunt on my dad’s side and […]

  • Dear Santa.

    Dear Santa, This has been A YEAR. Seriously. Can you just take note to whoever is in charge, that I’d like a nice and easy 2020? Please? Pretty please? I also decided that I’m not too old to write you letters and this year I have a few things on my list. So here goes: […]

  • Changes.

    Guys, apparently I don’t do well with changes. WordPress changed its layout. Flickr changed its layout. And it really put a dent into my whole “let’s get back into writing” mojo. Seriously, trying to figure out all these new shenanigans and goodness, I feel old. So yeah, I’ve had a post in the queue for […]

  • Hello, Again.

    Lately, when night rolls around and the boys are in bed, I sit alone and wonder where the hell the day went. Although today, it’s more like, where the hell did the last three months go? It’s the longest break from writing I’ve ever taken in my twelve years of owning this space. And it […]

  • La de da.

    Confession: I wrote this whole blog post about turning 35 last month and how it’s thrown me for a loop. I hit publish and left it up for a few hours. And then yesterday afternoon, I took it down. I don’t really know why. But I did. It wasn’t anything scandalous or crazy, but it […]

  • Currently.

    Currently. I haven’t been writing. Like at all. And it’s driving me crazy. I realized the other day that I’ve had this blog for almost twelve years. I just got the email to renew my domain and it’s just wild that I’ve been putting words out there for so long. Words, that looking back I […]

  • The Wedding Date.

    I have about three drafts waiting to be finished, a book that needs to be read, TV shows I can’t wait to start (House of Cards, Sabrina, Great British Baking Show), dishes that need to be put away and an apartment that desperately needs a vacuum. Basically, I feel like I have a whole lot […]
