Two years today.

Two years ago today I set my alarm for 6AM, waking up earlier than anyone in the house. I quietly crept downstairs to my "office", sat in my cheetah print reading chair in the corner, journal in lap. I knew I had 30 minutes, at most, to take a moment for myself to start my... Continue Reading →

Day One.

It's a Monday and it's November 1st. For whatever reason, kicking off a new month at the top of the week has always held significance for me. It's kind of like New Year's or a birthday - a reset, if you will. A chance to pay attention and not get stuck saying (once again), "Man,... Continue Reading →

Expand.

Woman. The word itself stands alone.  It is powerful.  It is big and bold, encompassing every ounce of the spectrum.  We feel.  We know.  And our days never lack in navigating when’s an appropriate time to 'feel' and when it's time to 'know'.

“I talked myself out of it.”

It's 2AM and I can't sleep. There is nothing particularly wrong.  Sometimes the brain just wants to create...and in my case, that means I'm writing. It's been over a month since my last blog.  I've thought about sitting down and writing every single day since then.  I'd take my laptop in the car with me wherever... Continue Reading →

Silenced.

I will never, in my lifetime, forget December 2, 2010. I was sleeping in bed alongside my "work-in-progress" boyfriend at the time, in my blue bedroom, in my new house in Hermitage, TN.  I woke up to my phone vibrating on the nightstand.  I picked it up and immediately saw a photo of a baby in an incubator, all...
