Welcome & Thank You For Stopping By!

"Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes... the ones who see things differently -- they're not fond of rules... You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they change things... they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do." Steve Jobs

The Golden Second Fiddle

There is a time when life is grand and gold and all things are possible. Youth has brass balls and no one can break them. In youth we think we’re the epitome of golden gods. No one can take away the certainty that we are young and immortal. Immortality fades away taking youth with it. Caressing carefree uncertainty is replaced…

A Friendship Appears Today #BeREALationships

Over the last few years I’ve followed an inspiring writer, Hastywords, who began a wonderful journey with her #BeReal series. As it has grown and evolved, I’ve admired many of the writers featured on the site. When she approached me to write a piece for #BeREALationships, I couldn’t say ‘no’ and I couldn’t wait to write. Many times throughout my…

Love Is Love Until It Isn’t

Love is love until it isn’t. When it’s no longer present in the heart or soul, we’re walking and talking with only emptiness making us whole. My eyes are trying to see the world but they can’t seem to grasp the slightest bit of understanding. Emotionless and void, working and earning, I am a woman completing every have-to-task bestowed on…

Bars & Boys

I’ve loved two men in my entire life. The number I’ve conquered is a far greater tally, but I’ve only truly ever loved two. First love and what I assume to be my current last love. There is no added benefit in shouting the drunken late night couplings with men whose names I can’t recall. They were hiccups in a story…

I Wasn’t Worth Saving.

In my younger days when I did something wrong, my mama would say: “You look at me when I’m talking to you.” I didn’t want to hold my head up to look at her.  I felt Shame. Guilt. Fear. Discomfort. She didn’t strike me. She scolded me, which at times felt worse than being hit. I’d disappointed her. Because she’d…

The Summer Of My Discontent

Every few months, I like to take stock of my life. It keeps things in order and allows me to set newer and higher expectations for myself. Those all important life questions flutter aimlessly through my mind, usually around 2 or 3 a.m. WHO AM I? WHAT AM I DOING? WHAT SHOULD I BE DOING? HOW CAN I BE BETTER?…

Crumbs Featured Today on Sammiches!

My life can take me back to a place, a nostalgic feeling reminding me of youth and days gone by. I once had a first love. A boy who I loved more than any other. His memory is a crumb now along with the delightful, irresponsible teenage years. To read more about love and rebellious teen years, please click the…

One Mother’s Morning Featured on Parent.co Today!

I wake up to a multitude of different people I need to be every day. I wake up before sunrise with a burdening to-do list, and I know I can’t complete most of the things on my list. But I try. I keep trying day after day. To read why I keep trying, please click the link below: “Trying To…

White Pants

I never buy new clothes. I have this theory: Clothing manufacturers make too many clothes and I can buy them at a discounted price by shopping second-hand. A lot of times I catch what I feel like is a real bargain. Some people apparently don’t even wear their clothes before taking them to the thrift shop. I can buy second…
