Winter blues

This winter my challenge will be helping my family and myself fight seasonal depression. This has been a trying year and being stuck inside is never the best thing for that.

I have been looking for crafts and cheaper options of things around us to do. One would think in such a big city there would be an endless amount of things to do but sticking to a budget makes it ridiculous.

However the battle has only just begun….

My thanks

For the entire month of November I will be thankful to every memory that I have.

The good and the bad.

Every person that has come into my life, with extra feeling to those that have walked out in whatever form. People come and go and the majority of the time we aren’t supposed to understand why I’ve decided.

I am not one of those that post my thanks daily however. To be honest I’ve never posted a thankful post at all actually. So this is a first and a last all in one.

Nothing against poeple who do, i just have a horrible memory and wint stick to it. Kudos to those who are able to.

Acceptance to all of our differences and understanding to all of our opposing thoughts.


The magic word

Learning the healthy normal in my relationship is going to be the new challenge in my life. We have forgotten how to function as a couple with all this running around parenting and working.

Recently he has had to switch a different shift that works him an opposite shift as mine. As much as space is something that our relationship thrives from, this may be a little too much space.

So I am looking around at different things that can help us re-center our focus. While I am mainly focused on getting us fun positive time together as a couple, I also would love to strengthen our communication.

   Yup, I said it.

That magic “C” word that always gets thrown around in a relationship. Everyone can stand to do a little work in that department,  at any point of the relationship. However when we are as strained as we are, I think that it is important.

Check back soon to see if I can get him on board as well. 🙂



Like the jetty

You’ve stood there

Getting struck by waves

For years.

Now you stand,



Wise and skilled as ever…

And just like the jetty,

You erode

With every high tide and heavy



Who says erosion is a bad thing?

After all

Erosion in the process in which water,

Our people and surroundings,

Transforms pieces of us

Over time,

Ultimately for safe-keeping.

It’s the process in which we perfect our jetty

By utilizing the heavy waves

That are the mistakes and/or misfortunes

Handed to us by the ocean

Our universe.
