She Whispers

“I’m coming for you…" her whispers are calling to me a little louder today. Who is she, you ask? Well, we do not speak her name – because if we do, her whispers get louder. Harder to ignore. Speak her name and she will come. She’s the voice that lives – rent free – inside... Continue Reading →

Getting Old, Feeling Older

Hello there, It’s been a while. Almost two years if we’re counting. A few people have asked me for an update, and it’s been so long that I’m not really sure where to start. So, I will just start writing and see where this goes. Happy to have you here for the ride! As most... Continue Reading →

I Am A Dreamer… I Think

“If you are a dreamer, you are realistic, you are determined, and most importantly you are optimistic. Success will just be a result of your actions. Importantly, optimism is not about being positive as much as it is about being determined and enthusiastic.” – Suzanne C. Segerstrom, Breaking Murphy’s Law I’ve always considered myself somewhat...

Signs at Work

I'M GOING TO THE AMAZON!! Y’all. Words cannot describe how excited I am and how much I absolutely need this adventure! We are flying into Ecuador and spending a few days in the Amazon before we hop over to Peru to see Machu Picchu. And let me just say: SO MANY THINGS fell into place... Continue Reading →

Oncologist Update

First off,... Continue Reading →

The Highlight Reel

The phrase “highlight reel” has come up in conversation a couple of times over the past week or so and it’s gotten me to thinking.

The past... Continue Reading →

Let Yourself Be Gutted

There is a quote by Cheryl Strayed that says, “Let yourself be gutted. Let it open you. Start here.” It has been around for a while but has recently resurfaced in my life and caused me to take pause. In a couple of weeks I will hit the 1-year diagnosis milestone, and lately I've been... Continue Reading →

New outlook on life, WHO DIS?!

I had a really long talk today with one of my bosses. I've introduced her in at least one other post as Audrey. She is the CFO of our [as of recently] 50+ person company, and resident "House mom". She's from New York and is basically my idol. She has a very dry sense of... Continue Reading →
