Pinterest Thinks I’m a Serial Killer

Pinterest Thinks I'm a Serial Killer

The other day I was perusing pinterest as I tend to do. Everyday. Constantly. My feed was filled with the normal stuff, blog tips, rude memes, and random nerdy shit. But it also had some recommended pins. Now, if you are a blogger or have been using pinterest for more than a week, you are…

How Old is Too Old to be Childless?

I have never regretted not having children. I am not so old that I can’t still have them, but not so young that people assume we have nothing but time. But the truth is, we don’t plan to have them. I have never wanted them, and neither has my husband. And I am NOT a…

The Lies Depression Tells You- Remember, depression lies

  I am an emotive person. Sort of. I’m guarded and usually unwilling to truly share who I am with people. But when I’m upset or in some sort of heightened emotional state (happy or sad) I need to express it. Whether that be blogging or talking to my husband. I have always assumed I…

Stage of Grief: Anger. Stage of Life? Unknown

Stage of Grief: Anger. Stage of Life? Unknown. Sometimes the anger is overwhelming, almost blinding. It's to be expected, I suppose. There are stages of grief even when you are mourning your former self, and no one can stay calm and collected forever.

Sometimes the anger is overwhelming, almost blinding. It’s to be expected, I suppose. There are stages of grief even when you are mourning your former self, and no one can stay calm and collected forever. When I woke up unable to walk 17 months ago, I was terrified. Stump doctors and no answers magnified that…

Blogging Authentically

Blogging Authentically

I read a great blog post about being authentic. It wasn’t from a blogger I follow, and have no idea where it was from, which sucks because I’d love to link to it so EVERYONE can read it. One of the most challenging things as a blogger is that we are usually sharing our lives…
