Can't keep my readers waiting...

... wait, do I still have readers?  I hope so.  But I apologize for not writing more.   Some days it sounds wonderful and other days it's the last thing I want to do.  Clearly, recently writing on this blog has not made my list of priorities.  I will tell you this, I still have a lot to share and it will happen all in good time.  In the meantime, stop by for sweet randomness and the glimpses into my book that will come to fruition in the near future.  When I say kick it..... you.... kick it.

'member that time....

Hey, you guys 'member that time when I said I would be writing here a lot more often?  Well... it's still gonna happen, so just be patient.  Good things are coming.  Stop by often and I do believe you will find something you enjoy.  Thank you.

Agree to disagree....

... but wait.  I can not sit silently by and watch you say such ignorant things.  I must speak my peace.  I am sure you do not think you are ignorant.  I am sure you think your beliefs are right, why else would you believe them?  I know in my soul that peace is the answer.  Love is the way.  And our creator (however you see it) made us for good.  And as much as we try to be different, we are the same.  We want to belong.  We want to feel love.  And I believe we want to be authentically ourselves.  It is so hard to see people pretend to be something they are not.  It is so sad to see people hate on others when they just do not understand or they have been given the appropriate insight and they chose to be blind.  I think it all comes down to fear.  What are you afraid of?
Afraid of different.
Afraid of questioning what you have.
Afraid of being yourself.
Afraid of calling a committed, loving relationship between same sex people a marriage?

I can not comprehend why different equals a threat to you?  Why can't different be beautiful?  Why can't different be normal?  It is so easy to cling to our egos and make our ideas or issues seem bigger than they are.  I know that if you feel similarly this will make sense to you and that is alright.  I think that if you want to continue to have tunnel vision, to feel comfort in your chaos, you will blow this off as hippie nonsense and that is okay too.  You may not even read this in the first place.  I hope that you will find strength to be yourself.  Every.  Day.  I hope that you will be brave and let down your walls, do not fear what you do not understand.  Different is good.  We learn from different.  And different really isn't all that different in the end.

Thanks for reading.

Girl's weekend...

...was great!  What does every mom deserve?  Time with your girls.  Talking.  Time to relax.  Sunshine.  Food that we don't have to make.  A few yummy drinks.  A house that we don't have to clean.  Lists that do not need to be made.  To float on a raft in the water.  Hummingbirds.  Hummus.  And a massage.  (the last three things I added just for me and the very last one just in my imagination).  I met some nice new people and caught up with one of my best friends.  We are all so busy.  And whether we have one child, two or three, you are busy.  You have a lot to think about ALL the time.  And this slower paced time by the water was SO appreciated.

I hope that we all stop to realize that some of the lists are not as important as they seem.  Face time with your fam is always more important than checking things off a list.  I hope that we all get (and give!) the appreciation we feel for the loved ones in our lives.  And I hope we can all take that time for ourselves (or with our friends) to refresh our spirits and give us more energy to take home to our family. 

It was my first time spending two nights away from my baby and when I got home, oh my goodness, I could not wait to see her!  All the extra hugs and kisses and smiles were Amazing.
