Why I will not be voting for Donald Trump

If you know me at all, AT ALL, you know that I do not, will not, cannot–talk about politics. However, this blog post is going to be an exception. I do not relate to either party–I am not a democrat nor am I a republican. So, I feel I can write on this touchy topic. When…

August 23 2016

Guys, I’m engaged. I never thought it would happen I get to marry the man I have always dreamed of. Like, I get to have him, like, forever. What. I am still in shock. Not only that, but we are having a VERY short engagement. Three months. What can I say? When ya know ya…

Thoughts on this Tuesday mornin’

I can’t be the only girl who is bad at expressing their feelings–like, really bad. I am really bad at talking about them…but gosh can I write about ’em. What I want in a relationship is probably like what most girls want in one–in fact, it’s not a want but it is a need. I want my…

Just relax

So I will be the first to admit that I never relax. I never ever make time for myself? Oh, you’re supposed to do that? Who knew… Sometimes, for me, that is so important. I am such a “people-pleaser” that I think of everyone in the whole world before I think of myself. But I want…

June 10, 2016

So it has been a while since I have written anything… as I am sure you have noticed. I have been on my blog, but just haven’t known really what to write or haven’t had anything I guess you can say.   It’ s been a while since I have just written about my life…

Don’t let the panic overtake you

Something that I have the hardest time with is taking everything one step at a time–working on one thing, completing it and then moving on to the next. Instead, I see everything as a ginourmous (that’s not really a word apparently) mountain of things to get done.  This, as it would anyone, overwhelms me. This…

The past year

Sometimes I like to take a look back on my life. Sometimes certain circumstances cause me to accidentally jump back to where I was–all the hurt, shame, fear, anger, etc. But, I think’feel I am getting better at focusing on the present as well as the future. Just a year ago i was so different–so…

How you know you need a nap.

How you know you need a nap Part 1: Today I unwrapped a piece of gum–I put the gum in the trash and the wrapper in my mouth.   How you know you need a nap Part 2: Today, at work, I walked into the stock room (where we keep braces and parts for prosthetics)…

Leave

Sometimes he would slap my face. I would have hand prints around my wrist from where he would hold me down or pull me. He would tell me, “this is all your fault that I’m leaving, you know”. I would believe it. Every. Single. Freaking. Time. “Who was that?” He would ask me when a…

Happy Birthday!

To the guy who makes me laugh harder than anyone– Thanks for always being there for me and showing me that not all guys are the same. Thank you for helping me be able to trust in men again and really just let someone have my heart again. You make me pretty dang happy, but…

What do I want?

Oh man, that’s a lot of things. But what do I need? I feel like that’s the more serious  question. I need something. I just pour out my heart–someone has to pull on my heart to get me to tell them anything. But if I am in a relationship whether it be a romantic relationship…

To my mom and dad

First of all, thank you. Thank you for everything. Thank you for teaching me that life is not about the big things but it is all about the small joys of everyday life. Thank you for making me excited to wake up in the morning and sit on the couch squished in between  my siblings…
