Use Your Words: How Writing Helps Me Heal

I received a copy of Use Your Words in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own. Almost two months. That’s how long I’ve been away from blogging. Okay, not ALL blogging, but here. In this space. In my space. I’ve been slacking off. For good reason though… You see, I recently took […]

Yes, two. My babies are two. A few days ago, when I realized they were turning two, I panicked. I don’t know how this happened.

In Love and Ignorance

Yes, it’s been two months since I’ve blogged here. I’ve written a few posts for Thirty-One:10 and HDYDI, but not here. I’ve been slacking, not because I don’t have anything to write about, but because I’ve been busting it trying to get my first eBook out. But today – today I have a reason to […]
