My guest posts round-up

Hey everyone!

I’ve been feeling a bit under the weather and desperately need to go rest. But first, I wanted to pop on here and share a round-up of other blogs I have had the wonderful privilege of guest posting or collaborating on.

First up, ideas on how to find time for peace as a mom, Continue reading “My guest posts round-up”

Showing kindness in relationships

Relationships can be hard. They require hard work sometimes. They require both people to be actively involved. Yes, there are occasions when one may need to work harder than the other, usually due to extenuating circumstances. Mostly, though, spouses and significant others should be partners.

Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case. That fact makes me really sad. Diesel and I aren’t often on the same page when Continue reading “Showing kindness in relationships”

Muddling through

So, here I am really trying to not completely lose my s*** right now. I’ve got a kid who doesn’t think he has to listen to me and a husband who doesn’t encourage him to. Not really anyway.

I understand that life and parenting and relationships are all full of ups and downs. Perfect or happy moments tend to Continue reading “Muddling through”

Diesel and I are celebrating six years of marriage this September. At the time of our wedding, we had already been in a relationship for over six years. This means we have survived a dozen years together.

When we first wed, I thought Diesel and I had no disillusions about what married life would be like. Continue reading “Our Anniversary”

BFFs Forever

In less than two weeks, my dearest, bestest friend Teacher Leia is moving thousands of miles away. She was offered a position she couldn’t (well, wouldn’t) refuse. So, she and her husband are leaving their home, families, and friends to journey on to their new destination.

I haven’t mentioned this on here yet because this topic is hard for me in some ways. I mean, I am beyond thrilled for them starting new lives together in a new place. They haven’t been married a year yet, which just adds to the excitement for them. I am equally ecstatic for Teacher Leia. She worked her butt off to earn her degree, and I am so, so happy she will finally be able to put it to good use.

But like I said, some of this is hard for me. I often feel more depressed thinking about what is to happen Continue reading “BFFs Forever”

My fears, part three

I have told you all about some of my major fears, which you can read about here and here. There is something else. I never attended college. Not because I wasn’t accepted; I was.

I picked a university six hours from home. My parents and I drove down for the tour. I loved every part of that school, including what was to be my dorm. And though I didn’t have all the money I needed for tuition, I had a plan on how to pay, including loans.

But I didn’t go. Continue reading “My fears, part three”
