What Was I Was Born To Do

This post is sponsored by The Motherhood, but all opinions expressed below are my own. Ask me this question 30 years ago and I’d have said “I’m born to be a chef — to cook, plate up beautifully, and serve tasty food made from scratch.” As a 9-year-old pup, I […]

A Letter In The Night And A Marriage Improved

Just Around The Corner

It’s best, even if you don’t have a spontaneous bone in your body, not to over-think these kinds of things. Decide and go. Hit a few talking points, cross fingers, conjure the faith you need, and move forward with grace and confidence into the great unknown. We were just around […]
