So emo

Now that Trump has taken office and got busy right away doing things, I find myself incredibly emotional. And probably not in the way that a lot of people are. I’m emotional about all the emotion that I’m hearing about at work and seeing on Facebook. There is SO much anger and angst. Empathy is …

Girl Power

Yesterday was the Women’s March, where millions of women (and men and even children) across the country gathered to “send a bold message to our new government on their first day in office, and to the world that women’s rights are human rights. We stand together, recognizing that defending the most marginalized among us is …

To 2016 – it’s been real…

A lot of people are pissed about 2016, with the election of Donald Trump as president and so many celebrities dying. While those things are a bummer, they didn’t really shape my year as none of those people have much impact on my life. But 2016 was a funky year for me. Not one of …

I am Pro-Life, but it’s complicated.

My first memories of “abortion” are from my early elementary school years at my family’s central Arkansas Bible church. Let the stereotypical assumptions flow after that introduction. But seriously, I recall seeing pamphlets with graphic photos of bloody trash bags of dead babies. I’m sure I asked my parents or maybe they showed them to …

Ripple Effect

The Highlight of My Weekend Was a Couch.

And I am okay with that. I kind of find it amusing, considering the things that usually entertain me – a date, a night out with friends, a vacation, normal exciting things. But this couch was well-deserved and much needed. Ronnie’s been complaining about our couch for a good year now. Not sure why we …

100 Things

My head is swimming, mostly good things. I could probably write a post for each of them, but I don’t have time. So tonight is one of those disjointed glimpses of my reality. Bullet points & all: – I am a darn good cook. I didn’t know that until recently, but it’s true. I’m having …

Wow, 2011.

I can confidently say I nailed this year! In so many ways, it could’ve nailed me. But I got the best of it. I’ve done these recaps on my blog for the last few years (2010, 2009, 2008), and this is by far the most fun year to answer the same questions. 1. What did …
