Moment of Truth Monday

Divorce has the illusion of being an easy solution for struggling relationships. It appears to be as simple as changing out the curtains in the living room when chevron is no longer trending. There is a dark side of divorce that isn’t displayed in sitcoms and headlines, and it involves a great deal of heartache.…… Continue reading Moment of Truth Monday

Moment of Truth Monday

Proper table settings make me nervous. While I distinctly remember the lesson in Brownies, I also remember panic moving in simultaneously. Did the spoon and knife go together? Where did the napkin belong? What if I didn’t get the place setting right? I promise I’m not exaggerating. Setting the table sends me googling and worrying…… Continue reading Moment of Truth Monday

Along with my sisters, we collected candy in pillowcases, stayed out begging…… Continue reading Moment of Truth Monday

Moment of Truth Monday

I love denim. If one pair of jeans is good, then 10 pairs is obviously better. I might own denim shirts in a variety of colors. If a girl could marry denim, this one already did. Tracking with me? I used to think this obsession {let’s just call it what it is, friends} was contained…… Continue reading Moment of Truth Monday

One Decision Changed my Friendships

A couple of years ago I made a decision that had an impact I could NOT have imagined. I was scrolling, actually probably more like trolling, through social media one morning when I saw a tweet that caught my eye. It invited readers to apply for a book launch team. My book-loving self wanted to…… Continue reading One Decision Changed my Friendships
