Stay

Because you stay. Because you’re loyal and in love, and will prioritize what matters. Because when you asked if I wanted to spend the rest of my days by your side, and we both know what that means, and I give it some thought and said that I did, that means something. Everything. It should... Continue Reading →

Showing Up

I’ve spent most of my life hung up on words. Writing journals full of the moments of my life from age seven. Endless reading, vocal training as a singer, as an English major in college and as a marketing professional for the last 15 years - using words to evoke, promote, highlight, pitch, engage, persuade....

Not what we thought

"The trick is to keep exploring and not bail out, even when we find out that something is not what we thought. That's what we're going to discover again and again and again. Nothing is what we thought."- Pema Chodron, When Things Fall Apart Read that on the beach today. The sun kept disappearing behind... Continue Reading →
