halfway point

I have shown a few people the first twenty pages of the novel I'm writing. One of these friends in particular did me a real solid this week and texted me some writing inspiration tips. She told me I have an amazing book on my hands and she can't wait to read more. She knew... Continue Reading →

January love list

It's been awhile since I've blogged about what I'm into lately, but I think I'll get back into the habit. If I'm honest, this isn't some thought that just came to me. Rather, it was inspired, as most thoughts are. If you've watched Below Deck, no doubt you too have a deep appreciation for Kate... Continue Reading →

what the hell did we eat?

The cleanse is winding down and I am relishing in the fact that I will be back to normal soon, eating as I wish, but hopefully also what my body needs. But make no qualms, I will definitely eat as I wish, most of the time sometimes. Eating with restrictions is tough. It's possible, but... Continue Reading →

impulsive, delusional

I am so done with adding kids to this family. I'm over it. This baby-making shop is closed.But then. We went to the children's museum. We go to the children's museum, a lot, actually. So much, in fact, that it serves as a reminder of certain stages of my boys' lives; a barometer of how much... Continue Reading →

rule of two

I feel bad, because Steve, I'm sure, was a fantastic child. If he would have had kids... Continue Reading →

tantrum in the library

One of my coffee shop customers also has two boys, her's four and six and today she told me she misses them when they were the age Brandon and Holden are now. I thanked her for the reminder - to live in the now, to idle and just be where I am wholeheartedly. I often... Continue Reading →

ho hum

This cleanse is getting a bit drab. The novelty has worn off and it's feeling almost like an old habit. Which really is the whole point - to change my eating habits. But it's not fresh and exciting anymore. It's like the third year of marriage before babies - "yeah, we've done this. What's next?"And... Continue Reading →

Observations after one week

1. Weight loss. I am down 6.5 pounds in a week. The change is noticeable in my stomach and my face. I usually have a rather large belly bloat, and that has diminished quite a bit.2. Clearer skinI am a 32-year-old who still gets zits. I've always noticed that it is directly a result of... Continue Reading →

weekend blues

We love the weekends around here. Our three year old triumphantly exclaims, "it's the weekend!" every Friday night when dad gets home from work. We eat the food we are craving, we drink a couple drinks, we make big breakfasts when we're both home. But on the cleanse, oh, on the cleanse. I thought I was... Continue Reading →
