• On Love

    LOVE. An appropriate topic the day before Valentine’s Day, right? I’ve been thinking lately about what love is, and what it isn’t. Love is kind and patient. It trusts, protects, perseveres and never fails. It is not rude and does not envy or hold grudges. It’s the thread woven into the greatest stories, and the beating pulse behind every

  • Letter to Myself

    Dear Self, I thought about writing a letter to your younger self, but she has already lived those days so what’s the point of going back?

  • Second Anniversary

    One of the reasons I like blogging is because it serves as a journal to document my days. Right now I can remember what we did for our second anniversary, but I guarantee you in a year I will probably have forgotten most of the day’s details.

  • April 9th

    April 9th is my favorite day of the year. Two years ago it trumped any other birthday or holiday. I remember all of the details. Things you normally forget hours afterwards, I remember years later. Sneaking out of bed and joining my mom for coffee in the sunroom before the sun, or my bridesmaids, woke
