Mom Fail, For the Win…

Motherhood in May / Part 4 I'm a big fan of many mom blogs; the really good ones that make me laugh, cry, and remind me of the solidarity of motherhood. I often get the overwhelming sense the writer has taken up space in my own head, organized my thoughts, and jotted them down in a more hilarious manner. I love when someone … Continue reading Mom Fail, For the Win…

For My Mom / For Her / For Us All

I had no plans to post today because, well, consistency in blog posting isn't exactly my thing, but I had an urge to jot some things down. After lunch today, I scrolled through my Instagram feed and read some news I'd been dreading; event planner extraordinaire, creative force, loving momma, and stranger to me, Tori … Continue reading For My Mom / For Her / For Us All

Feet Firmly Planted on the Ground | Head Soaring in the Skies Above

I've been absent, and not only from the pages of Written. While I write nearly every day, I was in need of a small breather from blog writing and book writing. I needed to clear some space and reassess my intentions and purpose. A reexamination of intentions is always a good idea, in my opinion, and this … Continue reading Feet Firmly Planted on the Ground | Head Soaring in the Skies Above

Five Years Ago | My Miracle Momma & Long Term Suffering

Five years ago I woke up in the middle the night certain my mom had died. She'd had surgery a couple days prior and wasn't rebounding as quickly as they'd hoped; her Dr's made 3 critical errors during this minor, routine surgery. I was worried. It was 1am in Colorado and midnight in Oregon. I slept restlessly for … Continue reading Five Years Ago | My Miracle Momma & Long Term Suffering

The Humble Hustle.

This vital reminder hangs above my desk; the space where I sit to write my book, blog and plan future chapters of my life. I absolutely LOVE it. Humility isn't something I've always embraced as wholly as I'd like to report; looking back it's embarrassingly absent. Kevin and I moved to Denver about 5 1/2 years ago and … Continue reading The Humble Hustle.

Who I Am [Challenge]

I posted this to my Instagram account this past weekend... I managed to score some unanticipated, afternoon writing time while my crew is at the pool. I also included #writer... I added it, deleted it and finally, hesitantly retyped it. Can I actually consider myself a legit writer? I don't have any books or novels published. I have had … Continue reading Who I Am [Challenge]

Learn to be a Ninja…

Rubina often presents some interesting topics during our evening bedtime banter; anything to stall and fill the short space of time between adamantly protesting her sleepiness and her sweet, little snores. She's presented many questions over the years during this time... Last night, after singing each of her favorite songs [twice] she quietly said, "Mommy, … Continue reading Learn to be a Ninja…
