Just Thinking Here

2021. The year I’m officially outed as a conspiracy theorist. Or a reality theorist. But whatever. I haven’t come to my conclusions quickly or easily. Who wants to be on the opposite side of “doing their part”? Not me! Contrary to one kind woman’s opinion, I do have a heart and I don’t want to…

Dubya Em Dees

How do you bring a country to its knees? How do you make sure people (smart, logical people!) are so emotionally exhausted and terrified they are willing to lay down their rights (especially the rights of their neighbors) in the name of “safety”? How do you get people to turn on each other so that…

Fall and other things

I love this time of year! The air is a bit cooler, the leaves start to change, you can drink coffee all day without overheating. Kids are back in school, and the holidays are right around the corner! Coffee tastes better on a cool morning! The squirrels are bustling around preparing for winter! Glorious fall!…

Nothing But The Truth

Things that are true stand the test of time. Things that are true can hold their own against doubts and misgivings. Things that are true will not be washed away in the flood of popular opinion or made untrue by lies. The truth will be there when all else is exposed for the nothing it…

Sea-ing Differently

I don’t want to write this blog. I’m going to do it anyway. First of all, I want you to know something. I love you. Maybe I don’t even know you, but I love you just the same. You are a person created in God’s image. You are valuable, and you are loved. There has…

Two Years

It’s been a wild ride so far. We were married six months when the Coronavirus hit. I am so thankful we had normalcy the entirety of our dating, engagement, wedding, and first six months of marriage! Praise the Lord! Getting used to being a wife and a brand new mom (to a four year old…

Just some Gratitude!

I have truly been feeling the love lately. I think we are blessed to live in a society where free speech and independent thinking are valued and protected. It is wonderful to know I won’t be judged if I hold a different opinion than my neighbor, and that someone I haven’t seen in years would…

Here’s what I’m offering..

I’m not an influencer. I can apply my make-up with just enough competence not to look crazy. I have no desire to be famous. I haven’t lived among Nepali people in the Himalayas or started a non-profit for underprivileged skate-boarders. I can follow a recipe but haven’t created crazy delicious flavor-combos like tomato-feta pasta (is…

Wakey Wakey

This morning I’ve been weeping for the people of Afghanistan and the horrific nightmare that is now their reality. The Taliban is in full possession of billions of dollars worth of U.S. weaponry and are going door to door murdering anyone who isn’t on board with their reign of terror. People are literally clinging to…

Holding on to Good

This last year and a half has been challenging to say the least. And there’s no end in sight. The world is upside down, emotions are high, and uncertainty is the only thing we can expect. I know I’m not the only one who gets anxious reading the latest headlines, so I thought a shift…
