Reading Time: 3 minutes When the morning is quiet I hear everything. I used to hate this, now it only kind of annoys me. The fridge is humming. The water is shifting in the pipes. Birds are outside. My pulse in my ear sounds like the ocean. My breathing – sometimes steady, sometimes sounding forced, but not quite like […]
Reading Time: 3 minutes I’ve deleted this post a few times. I’ve been writing it for about a month. At one point it was 500 words – I had punched in out in 10 minutes and then sat back and thought, no, this isn’t what I want to say. That happens from time to time. Maybe it’s because the […]
Reading Time: 2 minutes I’ve been feeling like I want to throw up all morning. My chest has felt tight too. I felt fine when I woke up. But you know what they say about being fine. I called the electric company because I still hadn’t received confirmation that they turned off the electric at the apartment we moved […]
Reading Time: 2 minutes So, if I was to write a letter to you – to all the peopleout there who feel burdened with grief, who feel less than, who are struggling to stay afloat and navigate the harsh waters of their reality, I would start with Dear Loved One.
Reading Time: 6 minutes In a perfect world it would be easy to say “this is one meal, I’m going to enjoy it,” but we know that often one meal can become two, which can become a whole day.

Reading Time: 6 minutes “You’ll shoot your eye out.” Not the best movie, but definitely a cult classic that I convinced JP to watch last year. “Seeing is believing, but sometimes the most real things in the world are things we can’t see.” The Polar Express was the first book my grandmother bought me as a child that I […]
Reading Time: 3 minutes Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall. – F. Scott Fitzgerald Far too often we find ourselves thinking about what we don’t have. When we goal set we’re thinking of everything we have to do in order to get where we want to be. When we scroll online, we see […]
Reading Time: 5 minutes I hate when it’s quiet, but there’s something about the early morning before JP gets up, as the coffee pot is going that makes me calm. Typically, when it’s quiet I can hear my pulse. As a kid when I tried to explain this to my dad he didn’t understand when I said I could […]
Reading Time: 4 minutes Even when I’m alone, I’ve gotten in the habit of talking to myself out loud. I’m sure that sounds crazy, but sometimes talking about it in an open space helps me think more clearly through the steps to solve the problem.
Reading Time: 6 minutes We’re shifting. I’ve been running on movie quotes this year and JP and I have been watching A LOT of movies. The spring was tough and there were more date night’s in,s o we revisited some of our favorites and found some new ones. Some inspired me and struck something that made me want to […]
