Friends. We have to talk. I need your help and input. I am knee-deep in my past life - in the form of pictures, wedding announcements, baby bracelets my children wore in the hospital. For the love of Elton John, y'all. It is getting so real in this organizing fiasco that is supposed to make … Continue reading Dealing With All the Past Life Fashizzle.
Writing Through the Unpretty
It's Friday...hello, call me Captain Obvious. I'm welded to my couch and have little interest in separating myself from it. This is the first day of the week where I haven't had to rush out the door first thing in the morning. It's been a busy one with no end in sight. So many thoughts … Continue reading Writing Through the Unpretty
Matcha Latte Review
I'll start with a brief review of the recipe for Matcha Orange Cardamon Latte: I was not a fan, as Piers often says when he doesn't like something. Still, I feel obliged to offer my dear readers a caveat. Shockers, but I didn't follow the recipe to a tee, so I'll have to give it … Continue reading Matcha Latte Review
I'm back! I attempted several drafts...in December...then in January, trying to succinctly sum up last year and offer hope for 2017. But truthfully, I've been a little down. 2016 was a good year for Grief Happens. I posted regularly, saw an increase in views and gained more followers, but for some reason, rather than feeling … Continue reading Happy February!
Turmeric Smoothie While Busting Through Clutter
Okay, friends. I'm working diligently, so here's my update (otherwise known as how I keep myself accountable.) I plowed through a huge basket of old bills yesterday and cleared the kids'art area that is in the middle of my living room. (Yes, a year or so ago I was certain I wanted a tiny house. … Continue reading Turmeric Smoothie While Busting Through Clutter
Connectedness and the Spirituality of Art
I decided to plant myself at my computer and simply write. Who knows what will come out of this today. I've needed to write all week, but instead I've been reacting, doing, and trekking through life. My brain feels crowded, fried, congested, and overwhelmed. I mentioned that September is a hard month around here. I'm … Continue reading Connectedness and the Spirituality of Art
White People: Be Quiet and Listen. It’s Time to Get Comfortable Feeling Uncomfortable
Here I am again, all perplexed, sickened, disenchanted, and angry. I woke up to headlines of another mother-flipping shooting, and I feel like I'm about to blow. Calm down, everyone. I strive to be a peace and love girl, and I've learned to channel my angst by grabbing a pen and paper or parking it … Continue reading White People: Be Quiet and Listen. It’s Time to Get Comfortable Feeling Uncomfortable
Summer Update: Writing, Music, Meditation & a Social Media Sabbatical
Hey, friends. I'm alive -- just trying to hold it together as we're in full swing this summer. It's a busy season for sure. Lots going that I hope to share with you all soon. Here's a quick (for me, anyway) summary: I quit Facebook and am detoxing pretty much from all social media … Continue reading Summer Update: Writing, Music, Meditation & a Social Media Sabbatical
So How’s That Meditation Stuff Going?
I got this question from a quirky neighbor yesterday. And why, you might be wondering, would I ever share the fact that I'm trying to meditate with a random person I know virtually nothing about. This, my friends, is the beauty of having children. My kids are participating in a neighborhood swim team this … Continue reading So How’s That Meditation Stuff Going?
Reading, Cleaning, Gabbing
Happy Tuesday, my loves. Are y'all as happy to see February as I am? Did our pal, the groundhog, see his shadow in your neck of the woods? My children are both having cognitive jumps, apparently. What this means is that their debate skills are forcing me to use parts of my brain that have … Continue reading Reading, Cleaning, Gabbing
