#RealTalk : Private Spirituality

We’re in the home stretch of Lent. Easter is less than two weeks away. And if you’re anything like me, then maybe you’ve slipped up a time or two – or twenty – on what you’ve “given up” for Lent. So these last two weeks are the final push – the home stretch where youContinue reading #RealTalk : Private Spirituality

International Women’s Day…

Well, last week was apparently International Women’s Day. I hope you can hear the dripping sarcasm in that last sentence. Does anyone else throw up a little bit in their mouth when, come March 8, social media turns into an estrogen fest of caustic female pride? I mean, double standard much? Honestly, I walk aroundContinue reading International Women’s Day…

The Bachelor Finale & The Disappearing Line of Decency

Just when you think you’ve seen it all, leave it to The Bachelor to pull an Emeril Lagasse and “Bam! Kick it up a knotch!” In case you haven’t heard, The Bachelor season finale was on Monday and Tuesday of this past week. And…wow. Just…W O W.

Little known fact, when I was growing up, I wentContinue reading On & Off the Ice

And C) Thank you for using my link! πŸ™‚ OK, so real talk: this was a tough weekend for America.Continue reading My Unseen Recovery

The Go-Between’ers

I felt a devastating familiarity, hearing about the shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida yesterday. These tragedies have become all too common in our current world. Las Vegas, Orlando, Sandy Hook, San Bernadino, Manchester. It seems like every couple months, the list keeps getting longer and longer. It’s sickening. The prayers we pleadContinue reading The Go-Between’ers

An Ashy Valentine’s Day

Well, in case you were uncertain as to the relentless pace of time, allow me to be the first to remind you:Β Lent begins this week. I know. I can’t believe it either. It feels like literally two days ago that we were ringing in 2018. But yep – Ash Wednesday is here. And I’m personallyContinue reading An Ashy Valentine’s Day
