Woman, Heal Thyself

I must have started and scrapped over 40 blogs this year. But I could not do it; even at the request and encouragement of a kind acquaintance who encouraged me to keep writing. Nothing I wrote felt right. Everything that came out of me this past year was angry, frustrated, and despairing. I wanted to... Continue Reading →

A Fashionista Halloween

It's been a minute since I've updated and I can think of no better day to do it! As mentioned in blogs past, I love Halloween; its historical origins and even some of the modern day fun of watching my nieces and nephews get all dressed up for trick or treating for the first time. Last... Continue Reading →

Feminism and Stay at Home Moms

Recently  I attended the second birthday of my nephew. This kid, along with my other niece and nephew, are my favorite kids in the world.

Surrender and Release

Friendships grew stronger this year while others fell away, leaving behind traces of experience that I carry with me. There was tragedy as well as laughter. There were celebrations of love and...

This is Halloween!

HALLOWEEN! Halloween has been my favourite holiday since I was about 2 feet tall, dressing up as Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz. As I grew,  I took a turn and later started dressing as a witch. It's funny the evolution- I use to dress as a witch with a pointy hat and black dress... Continue Reading →
