This past week held one of those crazy, hormonal days we females get blessed with from time to time. You know … the one where you know you’re being unreasonable and a little crazy, but your hormones feed on it like it is chocolate, so then you act even crazier instead of the sane, normal […]

Keep the Baggage, Douche & Douchette

Baggage … we all have a little we carry around with us. We have past experiences that can create a little baggage, it helps mold us and define us – sometimes, for the worst and sometimes, for the better. But I watch the world go on around me, and I sometimes wonder why both women […]

Roaring Women

The world is always changing folks, but sometimes, there are people who do not change with it. It isn’t always a bad thing. I personally think we are entitled to our beliefs, our thoughts and our feelings as long as we are not leaving a wake of damaged souls behind us. I was raised to […]

Straight Up Sucka

Y’all want to know something about me that I’m just kind of accepting about myself? I’m a straight up sucka when it comes to furry little creatures and kids selling random junk. I. Can’t. Say.

Never Give Up

Y’all, today I feel accomplished. Today, I harbor hope in my heart as I stare at the typed papers in front of me. I finished editing my next novel, which I am pretty stoked about. *insert screaming girl who’s jumping up and down like an idiot* Yeah, definitely excited. I’ve been working on my craft […]

Friendships & Aging – Marine Corps Style

As some of you may know, I come from a military family. I spent my life as a child moving from one place to the next every few years. I absolutely hated it at that time in my life. It isn’t easy saying good-bye to friends, then starting all over again. It might be hard […]
