Enneagram Anyone?

Hello! A few weeks ago, I shared some humbling realizations about myself that, after avoiding or trying to change, I’ve finally accepted, embraced, and chosen to face and grow from (Summer Break post). In the weeks to come, I want to unfold the resources that have helped me experience breakthroughs in some significant areas. Specifically,… Read more »

Me Time

Hi Friends! When was the last time you spent time alone doing something you love to do? For years, I’ve dreamed of taking a trip all by myself and filling my days with things I’ve always wanted to do, yet I continued to put it off year after year because, like you, I have real-life… Read more »

Summer Break

Hi there! I missed you, and I hope you had a wonderful summer! This summer, I decided to unplug from writing and other projects to take some much needed time to lay a foundation for my future. After my husband, Andrew, passed away back in 2013, leaving behind me, a 28-year-old mom, and our precious… Read more »

Do The Thing

Hi There! Have you ever wanted to try something new, but you were afraid to get started because you thought you were too old, too young, too this, too that? I have! But after years of analyzing, asking should I or shouldn’t I, I finally dove in. I think you should dive in to whatever… Read more »

Fill Your Tank

Up until this “proud” moment I’d only been in two pageants. Both were at the Denton County Fair. I remember getting to the… Read more »

Shout out to those lovely ladies. You are amazing and I appreciate how loved and welcome you’ve always made me feel…. Read more »

Ellie Turns 8

I can’t believe my baby girl is 8 years old today. I’ll never forget the day I met you. Your full set of black hair, dark skin—I couldn’t believe you came from me. Your dad held you first and I watched as he beamed with joy, rocking you in his arms. I remember feeling awe… Read more »

Life Coaching as a Career

Hi There!! Over the past couple of months, I’ve had an influx of people reach out to me wanting to know more about life coaching as a possible career for themselves. Honestly, this is so refreshing, because after getting certified back in 2015 I quickly realized coaching was way more mainstream in places like New… Read more »

Choose Courage

This morning, as I was driving Ellie to school, I felt the urge to put the Jack Johnson station on Pandora. From the moment I heard his voice I couldn’t stop smiling, and a rush of memories and joy flooded my heart and mind. I was transported back to 2005, driving down Valley Mills road… Read more »
