I started to feel like I was counting down to a death. Not my death; defiantly something dying and I couldn’t participate in that behavior any longer. I leave carrying burdens I didn’t think I would have to pile into my moving truck, but it is worth every brick in my suitcase.
I decided I needed room to breathe. I felt suffocated and surrounded at all times in our shared townhouse. It is large and she gave me plenty of space to rattle around in, but I grew tired of the demons that would pop up with no notice....more
My brother got me this t-shirt for my birthday. It's organic cotton, thick and soft. It's my favorite color and I love that it was screen printed by a local artist and not by some mass merchandizer. It is quite possibly one of the nicest t-shirts I have, but I have never worn it in public. ...more

It's a pretty awesome blog and very well written. I've never really ever had writing ability. I tend to be far too direct and non-descriptive. I'm all - Here are the facts! Read Them! (very German) I'm totally jealous of her ease with words....more
It's been a hard couple of weeks with PCOS scare and potential uterus issues. But today we got great news to keep moving forward. After the doctor Jacques Cousteau-ed my uterus (they take a camera up there and play paparazzi) he says, "Everything looks great. You've got a beautiful uterus. Perfect for hosting a baby."...more
I read an article the other day about how a high-school student, near the end of his rope, went to talk to his school counselor. He felt safe because he saw a rainbow flag on her door.Today he is the president of the student government at a major university. Based on that article, you might say he is thriving....more
