60 Days - Really?

 It's been 60 days. 60 days of self-isolation in this new crazy world we live in. I don't even know how to process that. I'm not sure how I feel, how I'm supposed to feel about that?  Actually, as of today, it's been 66 days for me. 66 days worry, 63 days of learning, 66 days of stress and joy mixed into...

I've been struggling lately with a lot of things. I've been sick for what feels like the whole month of January. A cold that became bronchitis that becomes something else entirely (I'm not even sure what) at times made me feel like I wasn't going to make it past cold and flu season. All while trying to work my full-time job, be an "Adult" and build...

This is something I've heard over and over again. The older I get the more I hear it. Friends, family even people I hardly know will make comments about how I'm single. How at 38 years old I still don't have children and I will never be happy until I have someone to share my life with.But here is the thing.......I have people to share my life with!...

 Today I had the pleasure of being able to interview Richie Crowley about his plans for the summer and how he is hoping to open up a conversation about what health really is and how we can all make changes in our lives that will lead to better overall health without spending $30 a day on fresh juices and joining a gym. You can read h...

As most of you who follow this blog know, I've had a desire to have kids for a long time. In fact, I thought I would have had them by now. However, a number of factors from spending most of my life poor, to not wanting to have kids the way my parents did (as teenagers with no real education or life set up) made me super aware of every action that c...

Find yourself a small place where you can go to sit and be at peace. This isn't possible every day but every once in a while I am able to pop over to the Floral Showcase in Niagara Falls (because I have a season pass) and just sit in nature and enjoy the day. I thought for today's blog post I would share some of it over the last few months with you...

If you follow this blog you know I've written in the past about my struggle to decide whether to have kids or not. What you might not know is when I was 19 I was told I would never have children naturally and the odds of me having one with medical interventions like IVF were very low. So at 19, I started to adjust myself and try to come to terms wi...

If you follow me on social media you know, I love my birthday. Some years I celebrate for weeks surrounding my birthday. I do this for a number of reasons (which I will talk about in a minute) and I think you should too.   Here's why…..Your birthday is meant to be a celebration of your life.A celebration of how much better the world is be...

We're now 11 days into 2019 and I've talked to a lot of people so far this year who are hoping that 2019 will be a better year than 2018 was. It's made me wonder how many people have no reason to get out of bed in the morning? For those of you who have been a part of this blog for a while, you know that in June of 2015 I felt the same way and I cou...

2018 was such a crazy year for me that I really don't know how to put into words all the things that have happened. I started the year off living with friends of mine who had just found out there were going to have twins! For a couple who struggled with fertility treatments to have children, I was overwhelmed and excited for them.The year held a lo...
