Fifteen Years Together (A “Stream of Consciousness” Love Letter)

To the love of my life…my very own Gilbert Blythe: Today marks a significant moment in our lives as our paths on this journey called “life” converged. Fifteen years ago today, we took each other’s hand and began walking this journey together.

REPRISE: In Honor of Father’s Day…

Living in 2016: What I Learned and Loved

We are well into the new year (10 days in). Coming out of the┬ábusyness of the holidays and New Year, I was left drained physically, mentally, and emotionally. I had given everything I had to my work and my family, and it took some time for my body to forgive me for going non-stop for… Continue reading Living in 2016: What I Learned and Loved
