You Exist – With or Without Instagram

My heart hurts. It's been been 3 months since quitting Facebook. Normally, this is not a big deal. I don't miss it: the scrolling, the negativity, the addictive behavior I'd formed around it. Scroll, feel bad, get off, get back on, scroll, feel bad, get off, get back on, scroll.... It was bad. I'm thankful … Continue reading You Exist – With or Without Instagram

Asking for Help: Sometimes Life Requires a Life Vest

I thought the mountains held the answer. Tall, unrelenting, opportunistic, the mountains loomed over us, beside us, outside … Continue reading Colorado: Hiking, Yoga, and Living in the Enough

Joy As Armor: How Pineapple Leggings and Unicorn Socks Save Me

Life gets so heavy. Some days, most days, it can feel beyond what I can physically carry. It's not one thing that looms large over my day. It's all the tiny things added up that can make me feel just a bit woozy: Motherhood, Wifehood, Careerhood. All the Hoods need all the attention and I … Continue reading Joy As Armor: How Pineapple Leggings and Unicorn Socks Save Me
