Life Is Better

Life Is Better

Emotions are something I have kept close. I was ruled by things I have heard over the years like… Never let them see you cry. Smile through it. Stop advertising your feelings. While I still don't gush, I have learned that me being open and honest with the happiness...

Learning To Surf

Learning To Surf

There for a little while I thought I would drown in it. I've experienced a tremendous amount of loss in my life, but this one shook me in a way that I hadn't anticipated. There are daily routines built around my relationship with my mother. Every day, when that moment...

Sunsets

Sunsets

Endings help us stay in the present. Endings bring us together. This is what I am treasuring right now. Family, friends, slowing down, being in the moment, reminiscing, connecting. #sunsets #beautifulendings #lunchboxwisdoms #wendyswisdoms

I Appreciate You

I Appreciate You

None of it is true!
