OH. BABY.

Wow. It has been quite a while. I know I usually give some schpeal about how busy I've been and how I can't believe I have let this much time pass without writing but truthfully, I allowed it. Genuinely. I haven't really been ready or motivated to blog recently. There is so much going on… Continue reading OH. BABY.

What Being a Dog Mom is Really Like

The other day, as I got my dogs rain coat on him, it dawned on me: "I am absolutely crazy." Not that me getting my dogs raincoat on was the first time I ever noticed it, but realizing your dog has a raincoat when you yourself do not, really gets you thinking. I would literally… Continue reading What Being a Dog Mom is Really Like

How to Naturally Kick Seasonal Affective Disorder

Well, it's official. Regardless of our Instagram photos of sunsets on the beach in early Fall captioned, "Summer isn't over until I say it is!", Summer is O V E R.

Hot Mess Express

My whole life I have been a ball of stress. I always tend to think of the worst possible outcome in any situation and harp on that bad outcome, in my head, until it becomes larger than life. Because I've always taken things on wholeheartedly this way, I know stress was a major factor in… Continue reading Hot Mess Express

To Share or Not to Share ..

September is Desmoid Tumor Awareness Month. Awareness of any disease is so important. Awareness brings attention which brings medical research and funding and hopefully will lead to more treatment options or even dare I say .. a CURE. I made a promise to myself that I would make my blog public knowledge on my personal… Continue reading To Share or Not to Share ..

Why Did I Start this Blog?

I'm the type of person who truly considers over sharing a terrible trait. I've mentioned it in my past blog about social media, how it's so strange to me that we post so much of our real lives online and let strangers in on our daily routines, celebrations etc. yet won't even say hello to… Continue reading Why Did I Start this Blog?

Review: Plant City PVD Bar Verde

Ugh, you guys. Plant City PVD. This place is AMAZING! It is a vegan marketplace (how cool) and basically a dream come true for a girl like me who feels super new to the plant based world. My husband made dinner reservations for me, himself and two of my best girlfriends for my birthday. He… Continue reading Review: Plant City PVD Bar Verde

Feel It Completely and Let It Go

For a while there, I had really mastered the art of talking to myself in a positive way. I was able to calm any negative thoughts, calm any anger I was feeling or ill feelings and I was even able to constantly look on the bright side of this tumor. Lately, it's been a little… Continue reading Feel It Completely and Let It Go
