The Backstory

I am a mother, a sister, daughter, friend, and wife.  Some days I am good at these things and some days I fail miserably.  I am a wanna-be yogi.  I love to play in the dirt and watch things grow.  I enjoy taking random photos of irony and random things but never call myself a photographer, because I have a fancy camera but don’t know how to use all the buttons .

I have ex’s and baggage and that’s what makes me human.   I have a millennial family where everyone has a different last name.  I used to carry that with shame but I no longer do.  I have crashed and burned a few times but have always gotten back up.   I know now that these are the life experiences that we grow and evolve from, so I try to embrace them because there is a lesson to be learned.   I try to live every day with intention and try to teach my children to do the same.   I know I can’t change the world but I think I can.

I am wanting this blog to reach other women that are going thru messy life experiences to understand that our lives aren’t always recipes, cleaning, and having kiddos with straight A’s. I wish they were!  Our lives sometimes involve divorces, Wellbutrin, and a little therapy or a lot and that’s ok.  We need to laugh more, lean on each other more, and lend each other a non-judgmental ear when needed.

“So many tangles in life are ultimately hopeless that we have no appropriate sword other than laughter.” » Gordon W. Allport
