Letting Go

For many years I lived in the midst of chaos. My Mothers was a hardcore alcoholic. Our family dynamic was enabling and unhealthy. I witnessed terrible things, and was helpless to stop them. I never knew normal, and carry heavy emotional scars. My identity and behavior was been shaped around this painful past. I amContinue reading “Letting Go”

Port City

One of the best things about New England is that everything is centralized. My husband and I live in Manchester New Hampshire. This definitely has challenges, but also allows us opportunities. One of these is the fact that we are only an 1 1/2 hours from Portland Maine. Friday we took full advantage, and tookContinue reading “Port City”

Finding Happy

Yesterday was just a regular Monday. My job had sent me out to Stratham for training. It is only 10 minutes from the New Hampshire Seacoast, so I took a ride. I have always been adventurous at heart, but I haven’t always followed through.   My life used to be driven by other peoples expectations.Continue reading “Finding Happy”

It was a beautiful morning, and we took off around 6am. Heavy fog sat at ground level, the air sticky and warm. It would be aContinue reading “Bitty and Beau’s”

Road Notes: Savannah

Savannah was many things. Much more than the Spanish moss I went there to see. It was a waterfront, with a wide open park. People sat upon the benches, twisting palms in their hands, calling out to us. The muddy river wound lazily by, only interrupted by the ferry.  A Child circled a monument ofContinue reading “Road Notes: Savannah”

Yet I wanted to take a moment and back track on my journey the last few months. I have made some major life changes. These changes areContinue reading “June Check In”

February round up

I can’t believe that it is already March. As I grow older, the years seems to go by quick. It is crazy to think that we are almost a quarter of the way through 2019. This year, I am following a group of goals, set month by month. This is much easier to track andContinue reading “February round up”

Knocked Out

Been under the weather for about a week now. On Friday I caught the flu. I have been out of work since. I ran a fever, caught a cold, and somehow ended up with a case of vertigo. After about six days, I am finally feeling a bit better. Honestly it has been a roughContinue reading “Knocked Out”
