For the past three years I have longed and longed for my very own dog. I am a HUGE dog lover and have had dogs growing my up whole life since the day I came home from the hospital. For 18 years I always had a furry friend. When I graduated highschool, joined the military, … Continue reading You are everything I never knew I needed.
Have you ever been in a situation where someone or something just SPEAKS to you? I have. Around February of last year I was sitting in church one Sunday morning and it hit me in the chest like a ton of bricks. It's crazy how that happens- one minute you're just sitting in the pew … Continue reading My Gratitude Tattoo: One year later.
I am over the moon excited to write todays post but I've also been avoiding it because I know I won't make it through without crying at least once. More often than not, any time I start talking about Nate I get emotional. So, without further a due... meet my people: Nate. My little (and … Continue reading Meet my People: Nate.
Wow. it has been over a month since I've written and posted. Definitely not something I wanted to do, but this is where I am.

Four or five years ago if you had walked in my bedroom at any given moment you would always see my bed messy and unmade. I didn't "believe in making the bed". I thought it was a waste of time, what's the point if I'm just going to crawl right back in it when I get home anyway? … Continue reading Why Making Your Bed is Important.
I got my nipples pierced, traveled to a new city with friends, worked in a new trauma hospital, and crashed my car into a fire hydrant (which I still get shit for to this day). I passed my PT test, got promoted, went skydiving, and turned 21. I went on my first cruise, witnessed the … Continue reading 2017.
Loving who you are. A few months back I saw this photo online somewhere, I can't remember where, and immediately knew I wanted to write about it.
