It’s My Story & I’m Sticking To It

More often than not, we learn our role during our childhood. As such, as adults we continue to play that role which consequently teaches the people in our adult lives the role we play. Follow me: Growing up you are consistantly called a trouble maker due to various situations you find yourself in. Maybe yourContinue reading “It’s My Story & I’m Sticking To It”

Go Back to the Beach if You Must

I’m going back to the beach today. Not only because I want to, but because I must. I need to see the water, I need to feel the sand under my feet. I need to hear the waves crashing into the pier and I need to listen to the surfers speaking of their love ofContinue reading “Go Back to the Beach if You Must”

RANT: Thought I had it figured out…and Then I didn’t

Today I just need to get this out into the universe… Maybe Have you ever tried so hard and no matter what, you just couldn’t make it happen? You try so hard to get over it and you can’t. The failure is so deep, so personal that it reopens old wounds. You’ve tried to shareContinue reading “RANT: Thought I had it figured out…and Then I didn’t”

Keeping the Beachlife Alive

My dream vacation has come to an end. After 8 days of travels and beach bumming we are home. I’m happily snuggling with my puppies and listening to my son in the next room, enjoying being back.

I can proudly say each morning was a victory in that department. 🙂 Our second morning on theContinue reading “Taking the Beach Home”

I enjoyed today like there’s no tomorrow, because youContinue reading “Day 2”

Day 1

Day 1 of vacation. We started our journey 12 hours ahead of schedule. We traveled just under 1300 miles with 2 hours of sleep at a rest stop in just under 21 hours. We have another 4 1/2 hours to go. The goal is to get there before noon. That is 3 more states myContinue reading “Day 1”

AMAZING! STRONG! EMPOWERED! IT’S FINALLY HAPPENING!!!

That feeling you get leaving your psychology appointment after the doctor says you’ve made tremendous progress and she is not only impressed but proud….and in less than 24 hours you leave for a white sandy beach to spend a quiet week with the love of your life. This moment……PRICELESS ❤

Dear Grandson

Hi Bubba. How was your day? Did you play games with your daddy? I bet you have grown so much since I’ve seen you. Are you wearing big boy underwear and going potty in the big boy potty? Do you still fit in all the dinosaur clothes we got? Do you still have the dinosaursContinue reading “Dear Grandson”
