I woke up on Tuesday, April 21 with a very light period cramp feeling. More than two weeks earlier I had some false labor contractions, so I knew not to get my hopes up, but to just observe. I was 3 days past my due date; somewhere I never thought I would be after our...

As I write this, my litebook (light for people who get seasonal affective disorder) is shining in my eyeballs in an effort to make my body feel less of the darkness that winter brings. It is and has been dumping snow for more than a day, and I can't really remember wha...

This is about how I got over my shit about second hand clothing.

I was recently asked by a friend to explain how I sort of got to where I am today with all things second-hand/thrift/pre-loved/vintage/etc. I’ll start at the beginning.

Tomorrow will mark the end of my month without social media. I thought I would make a final reflection on my time without my SM accounts. Overall, I think this time has been positive and revealing. From the first days of reaching for my phone without realizing it more...

I have hesitations about writing and sharing often because I worry about a few things. I worry about saturation, authenticity, and repetitiveness. I find myself holding back thinking of the saturation of content; "someone has already said this", "this is old news", "th...

Hello friends,

It's been a couple weeks and I have a couple things I've been meaning to write about. As I write this I am sitting at home alone. Yes alone. The kids are at day-home one day a week, and it is completely an investment for my energy stores and well-being. S...
