    Taking Stock: August 2020

    I gotta say: 2020 is really giving me a sustained dose of writer’s block. Usually when I have writer’s block, I take a break and get out and about. I change something. I “get a life” as they say. At the moment I only write for fun, but I like to keep the writer in me alive. This year has been a year for listening more (to important information regarding Covid-19 or so I can learn more about important social issues). It has been about social distancing and about very personal growth (stuff not for the blog at this point). I have watched my 8 year old maturing before my…

    2020: Week 2

Last year I set the intention of documenting the year with a weekly update. It was supposed to be a great record for me to look back on and a way of sharing my life in a chatty, diary like kind of way. A wrap up of what I’d been up to. The good, the bad, the ugly.

    My word for 2020: Authenticity

    I don’t always find a word that sums up my intention for an upcoming year. Sometimes nothing comes to me and I just shrug and let things unfold. Not this time, my friends! This time I am passionate AF about my word. I did a lot of growing and learning in 2019 and now I want to spend 2020 making sure I never forget my lessons. The past decade in general has been intense! Lots of personal growth for my husband and I, individually and as a couple. We’ve become parents. Survived a big chunk of that time during which we couldn’t conceive the Little Miss and then undergoing a…
