30 Is The New Happy

Honestly, I was never that person who feared turning thirty. I didn’t lay in bed and cry. There was no need for Prozac or Xanax. To me, it was another birthday, and I love birthdays. And the way I saw it, I was just one day older than the day before. It wasn’t like I … Continue reading

Monday’s Mission: More Than Survive

First of all…I have to wish a happy birthday to my much better half. Today marks the 16th birthday that I have shared with him. And in all honesty, the older this man gets, the more deeply I fall in love with him. I know, I know. Life isn’t fair. But why do men get … Continue reading

Looks Can Be Deceiving

Not all pretty girls are snobs. Not all that are overweight are lazy. Not all that are skinny are vain. Not all that wear a smile are happy. And just because someone seems to be the picture of health, doesn’t mean that they actually are. Don’t judge a book by it’s cover. I am sharing … Continue reading
