This month got me like…

As a type A, listmaking multi-tasker, it is in my very nature to take on a lot.  I’ve learned to handle stress better as I’ve gotten older. Good old experience!  However, being all of these things while pregnant got me like…

TWW and MB

It’s exciting and exhilarating to think that I’m growing a tiny human.  For many women it’s not easy getting here. Let’s talk about the most agonizing thing about conception.

The secret is out and times are a-changin’!

Whilst we all know I am a little slow on blog posting, a 3 month hiatus seems a bit much!  Well it’s for a great reason: I’m so happy to share that we are expecting a little girl in January!

How Lovely to be a Woman…

As a blogger, a writer, a wife, a wedding officiant, a singer, a concierge, a crocheter, a friend, an aunt, a daughter, or whatever you want to call me, I am something different to every person I meet and know.  I wear many different hats. One hat I happily wear is my woman’s hat with all the pleasures and pains that go with it.  Continue reading

2016: In search of Joy

Every year on December 31st and the days leading up to it. so many of us adopt new mantras we are determined to follow. New Year, New You.  It’s amazing how many times you see it on social media: lose weight, find bliss, go on vacation, find a husband, lose negativity, find, lose, go, find, lose… What are we really searching for?

I’ll take Comfort and Joy, please!

 

Happy friggin’ Holidays!  Joyous Kwanzaa, Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, etc. etc!  I’ll say them all to cover everyone I can think of. The made up war on Christmas has not dampened my Christmas spirit.  I have been super duper down in the dumps lately.  If you want to know why, read Trying Out the Roller Coaster to get the gist.  It’s intense, but it chronicles the ridiculous pattern that is my life on a daily basis.  Not much goes my way these days but this holiday season?  Oh, I’m taking back my holiday comfort and joy!

Trying out the roller coaster…

When you have nothing nice to say, say nothing at all.  Well the same goes if you have SO much good to report.  I haven’t written in probably one of my longest stretches since I started this blog.  I’m back from vacation and my mini hiatus with so much on my mind, good and bad.  It’s time to put it all in perspective.

Enjoy the In-Between

I think we can all agree that this winter has been a rough one in the Northeast.  I myself have become a hermit alongside my husband.  Our heated mattress pad has been our best friend. I haven’t written this blog for weeks; I have spring fever like whoa. Hubs and I have really been trying to distract ourselves from all of our goals that we’re “waiting” on, the things we have no control over and have to be patient about. We’ve been having tons of fun distracting ourselves though with vacations, dinners out, and binge watching on Netflix.  Most days I dare not think about the big things we have cooking for our life together because if I do, I’m sure they will all end in the same kind of sobby mess that occurred just a few weeks back.  The aftermath? I just can’t stop myself from embracing my Type A personality and starting to plan.   But I’m way ahead of myself.  It all began with my other husband….

Tiny Humans

I got married less than two years ago.  I’m in my very early 30s. I don’t love my job, but I do it well and it pays the bills.  I’m a kick ass singer. I marry people. I have ten billion dreams for my life that I’m trying to make come true right now. I’m trying to stay focused. Eye on the prize! But you know what everyone asks me about? The tiny humans.
