I recently married my best friend and one of the best people I know in September of 2015, then had a health crisis that almost cost me my life. After a five day hospital stay, two medical procedures, and a surgery I am feeling better than I have in years. There are so many new things I notice now that would not have registered with me at all before getting well again. I was exhausted and angry to be exhausted and, I am very sorry to admit, that anger often found its mark with those closest to me. Now, however, I enjoy long conversations and road trips (even just 15 minutes to the grocery) with my wonderful husband, girls’ days with my mom for nails and lunch, and time with friends I had not seen since before my illness got really bad. I wanted, no, needed a place to express myself in the best way I know how: by writing. This site will be a collection of writings about my thoughts on a variety of subjects and it will not always have a black and white answer to the questions I ask. Here we go!
