Sayonara Thirties!!

This is the last week of my thirties and good riddance! I used to think my thirties were the best decade: I got married, bought a house, fell in love with teaching, self-published two books, was given an awesome opportunity to go to San Francisco for a photo shoot (DHC customer spotlight), and had the miracle...

The End of Summer

Today is officially my last day of summer. I woke up to my four-year-old sliding in bed with me and snuggling. There is no better way to start the day than that. However, it makes the thought of waking up tomorrow and going to work a hard one. I am excited to have the new... Continue Reading →

Ironically my mother (the parent... Continue Reading →

Save the Puppy

As a teacher, it is bittersweet that the school year has come to an end. I absolutely adore my students and their parents. I truly do. Due to being a career changer, I (at times) feel like I don't fit in with the "meant-to-be" teachers. They always knew they wanted to be a teacher. I... Continue Reading →

Hello yet again world!

I have abandoned many blogs in my years. I have come back to wordpress and I hope to stay. Maybe I get bored; maybe I cannot find exactly what I want and refuse to settle; maybe I am a bit crazy? Who knows. For those of you that don't know me...I am a writer, teacher,... Continue Reading →
