Present //

In searching and wresting with what this blog is, what I want this slice of internet to be, I know I want it to be mine. And something that is so important to me,  is being present where I am. It is so easy to compare, to look forward, to be eager. And those are […]

A Week at a Time |11/18/16

When life gets crazy or exciting or overwhelming or things change, I write. It’s always been this way for me.

Memories As We Move Forward

So let’s get started shall we? The next series of posts will primarily be sharing words about and pictures […]
