Straight, No Chaser

Remember that giant overwhelming mound of impossible daily tasks? An endless list of ta-dah’s you were put on Earth to conquer. A mental or physical checklist that always seemed to grow and only temporarily managed to shrink. We all know that list. Well...believe it or not, I’m missing every bit of it. My brain keeps [...]

The Real…#couchtalk01

Instagram is saturated with positivity: quotes, inspiring messages, motivational memes, etc. While it’s lovely to know the sun will come out tomorrow, being so stinkin' positive isn’t necessarily the most beneficial way to be of service to others.

Shocking fact because my nails have always been super strong, which is why I secretly thought they were invincible. Surprise! Jokes on me…Hi, [...]

July 22nd, the day this queen was born, I went to bed completely stuffed with birthday joy, AND I woke up without a lick of guilt looming over my head. Unfortunately, Thanksgiving is always another story (rolls eyes).  Sunday, my Birthday Eve, was spent enjoying all things simple: friendship, belly laughs, flavorful food, mimosas, chauffeured [...]

Writefully So
