The Here And Now: Living In The Present

We’ve made it to July. God is good. Time is an unbothered queen. She’s going whether you’re coming along or not. So yeah, even though it feels like everything should have stopped, it didn’t. And I’ve said this before, humanity will keep chugging along until the wheels fall off, until the clouds burst open, until…

A Rant I Guess

I’m trying to find out exactly what makes me disgusted with social media, people and the world at large. This is a deep dive rant. I am tired. For years I have been trying to learn the all important lesson of giving people room. Room to disappoint, fail and be genuinely human. But all the…

A Private Life

Saints, it’s good to be on here again after an unplanned break of sorts. I’ve been very busy being not busy and the weeks just flew by. I hope you are all safe and healthy. I know some people have been very productive during this time. I’m not one of those people. I’m quite certain…

What I've Been Doing In Quarantine

In short, absolutely nothing. But that wouldn’t make for a fruitful blog post. Kudos to you all who have made a smooth, Instagram worthy transition to self-quarantine and have made social distancing a top trending hashtag. Y’all are the real MVP’s.

My Opinion Doesn’t Matter…But…Corona

Currently I’m in my bedroom scrolling through the Netflix options for yet another movie to doze off to. My head is giddy from watching too much t.v. and sleeping. I thought about suggesting a game of UNO to my husband, but it’s not as much fun with just two people, and he’s also low key…

Jamaica

I’m not sure why everyone else’s travel life seems so glamorous. My experience, every time I talk about it, seems so vastly different from just about everyone else. And I’m talking specifically about everything leading up to sticking my feet in hot white sand. So therefore: the airport. Actually, now that I think about it…

To My Village With Gratitude

My date of birth has finally arrived. I have been dreading it all year but if there’s one thing that’s unavoidable it’s aging.  It’s terrifying. I want to crawl back into my 20’s. To the sweet spot of 26 if we want to get specific. I could cozy up right in there for another five…
