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”

Bitty and Beau’s

We had spent the majority of the week in South Carolina. Yet we were ready for something different. On a whim, we decided to visit family down near Savannah. 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”

So much has happened since my last post in April. I have so much to share!  There have been some progress on my goals, and some fun trips. 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”

Finding Happiness

I have been away, taking some time to regroup. Late in 2018 we faced some challenges that forced us to move in with family. We traded in a wide open country lifestyle for a hectic urban one. It was hard, but we needed to get out of a toxic situation. Yet it has been anContinue reading “Finding Happiness”

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”

Finding Myself

I went for a walk to clear my head tonight. The days are still cold, but the bright sun lingers a bit longer each day. I’m exhausted, but trying my best to take advantage the extra daylight. We are living in Manchester, and I take walks up at the local college. Being on campus madeContinue reading “Finding Myself”

Wildflowers

Tomorrow is Valentines Day, the one day many people take to celebrate love. For me the holiday has almost became too much. I have a major issue with the way holidays are peddled in the United States.  We are bombard by displays in stores, and TV advertisements for jewelry.  The day has become an excuseContinue reading “Wildflowers”
