A confident expectation

April 30th was a one year anniversary of the start of the biggest trial of our lives. The news we received that day was so dark, so absurd, and shattering. It’s been one year and our lives are forever changed and so different now. Betrayal was a word that I thought I was familiar with…

This mom says no more…

I despise homework. Not just homework I used to have in general, but my child’s homework. I did not like homework growing up, and I most definitely hate it even more as a parent. Yes, I said hate. Because I’m ok with homework dying and never returning. Homework is not just work for the child…

Busy Bee, busy me…

I’m one of those people who love to be busy. I honestly feel like a part of me is dying if I don’t have anything to do. It sometimes can depress me. I’m weird like that. You know what my favorite type of work is? I love working in the restaurant industry! I’m one of…

When your child is the teacher

My son has so much passion for Jesus. His faith is always on fire and he is always challenging himself to take it to the next level. I absolutely love this about him! You see, I didn’t get the chance to grow in a church going, God-loving home, so I love to see him be…

Is my fruit spoiled?

I can’t be the only one who thinks coffee tastes like cigarettes?

It’s an early morning. I drove like a zombie to work so I had another day of forcing myself to drink coffee. Which I swear tastes like cigarettes. Of course I’m basing this off of my “regretful days” where I would pretend to smoke just to impress people.  The only time I ever really tried…

Starting a blog

So what made me want to start a blog? Well I’ve always loved writing. I’ve had a journal since who knows how long. And I’ve written every encounter, from every crush, every heart break, fights with my mom to fights with my sisters, to every silliest little thought that came across my head. And I…
