It's there. It's everywhere. I promise. And there's way more of it than there's not. I mean there has to be, right? This weekend a young person from our community committed suicide. I can't begin to understand how that person felt and what they were going through. It's so confusing. My heart aches for the … Continue reading Where is the love?
I have something to say finally... I know you've been missing my rambles as I've been on my post 40 before 40 hiatus. I'm back ___________ (I kind of wanted to add a word that rhymes with itches here, but I refrained). Sort of. Keeping it PG people. Sort of. So a bunch of people … Continue reading I’m back…
And the story continues... Once we arrived in Anaheim we checked into the Residence Inn. This place was pretty cool. Condo style, complimentary wifi, breakfast, nice pool. I like. We dumped our stuff in the room and headed out to meet up with our friends for a late dinner. Remember how I said the place … Continue reading #34 Cali Road Trip (part two)
Know what I did today? Well, let's start with what I did not do... I did not go to Costco. We are currently out of food in our house. Not that I cook it anyway, but I usually try to provide options for the family to feed themselves. I did not go to the post … Continue reading Summer Guilt
I know you're wondering why this is an adventure... Or maybe you're wondering why I am behind on my writing... Or maybe both. Or most likely neither. I'm going to tell you anyway, my faithful readers. I'm behind because the end of the school year happened and that is a crazy time all by itself … Continue reading #32 Moving Up and Moving On
There are so many things you can do when you turn 18. For example, you can: Apply for a credit card Move out Buy cigarettes (or vape pens or whatever they are...which are equally stupid) Buy a lottery ticket Vote Join the military Go skydiving And get a tattoo. After I turned 18 and when … Continue reading #29 Inked
That's me. I'm supposed to be on an adventure, but I cancelled. Sometimes life just gets the best of you and you gotta say, "hold up, pause...I'm taking a break." That's what I did. It took a long time to get to the point where I wouldn't feel guilty. Or as guilty anyway. I won … Continue reading Slacker
I'm about to get real. Well, I think I'm always real...but realer. Wait, that's not a word. More real. I have two kids. 18 and almost 14. I became a mom at 21. At that moment being a mom became the most important thing I would ever do. My husband and I had to build … Continue reading Helicopter
Ugh. Balancing it all is one of life's greatest challenges. Isn't it? So I'm a mom. And a wife. And a career woman. I also have family and friends who I am very close to (in proximity...I mean I did grow up in this area) and as in they are close in my heart too. … Continue reading Adulting is not easy.
2016 was quite a year. As I reflect, we have so much to be thankful for and I'm ever so grateful for my family and friends who are the kindest, most funny, outgoing, loving, adventurous, supportive people. For my job where I get to share my passion for science and work with kids that inspire … Continue reading 2017
