My Real Life Jim Halpert

I've started to write more about my anxiety, which has introduced a lot more feedback from readers, which I love and appreciate. Recently, my friend Alex asked me the perfect question. How do you handle having that level of anxiety and continue to do all the things you have to do in everyday life? I gave him... Continue Reading →

Everything Hurts and I’m Dying: A Lesson on Thin Air

This is the story of our winter vacation over the past week. It did not go as planned, to say the least. Be prepared to laugh at my pain. The past week, Kent and I went to Snowshoe for a snowboarding trip. Kent knew what he was doing on a snowboard, I knew what one looked like.... Continue Reading →

It Takes A Village

I wanted to do something different for Stella's adoption day photos. I wanted the pictures to tell a bigger story than just the day.

A Musical Experience

As a 30 something year old mom with a full-time job, I don't go out much. Going out involves having to look presentable to the general public, and most days I'm just really not into that. Down time to me, is when I sit down on the couch, after the tiny human is in bed,... Continue Reading →


When disaster strikes, we look for the good, we look for the helpers. We need something to make us feel comfort. After the recent hurricanes, there was so much devastation, loss, and heartbreak. There were also extraordinary acts of overwhelming kindness. There were people who drove double digit hours with their boats in tow to... Continue Reading →
