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

What I’ve Learned From Deactivating My Facebook

When I got rid of Facebook a little over 2 years ago, I was really seeking some privacy. As I've previously mentioned, I think oversharing the wrong information can actually have a huge negative impact on us. The more engrossed we get in social media as a culture, the more we seem to lose the… Continue reading What I’ve Learned From Deactivating My Facebook

Stability

In general, stability is a really good thing. We go to college to get a stable job with a stable income. We look for stable relationships in our friends and lovers and we look to build a stable home to build our lives in and relax in. Being stable is a good thing. I got… Continue reading Stability

An Affirmation Conversation

Haha, sorry, I had to use that title .. the rhyme was too good not to. ANYWAY, I digress .. I went into my phone notepad the other day to type out another grocery list and noticed how many notes I had jotted down in that space. Like, excessive amounts. I was scrolling through them… Continue reading An Affirmation Conversation

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?
