A Letter to May (2018)

Dear May, I’m sorry I’m late. This month came with hard conversations. Confrontation, tears, and heartache. I did not want to put myself back in that frame of mind to write this letter. Even right now as I write this I am hesitant to keep going. Having been writing letters for a year and a…

A Letter to April (2018)

Dear April, I’ve always thought of myself as strong until I had to say goodbye. In that moment, I believe I was stronger than I ever could have imagined. It always easy for others to say when enough should have been enough. Of course, we’re never that lucky, April. Last month I reached out to…

A Letter to March (2018)

A Letter to February (2018)

Dear February, I blinked and you were gone. We’ve now entered a new month and here I am still fumbling to find the words to say. I guess I’m afraid to start writing because I don’t want to say something wrong, as I so often have. So many good things happened, February. I drove to…

A Letter to Goodbye

It’s hard saying goodbye. Sometimes I find myself holding my breath waiting for your name to pop up on my phone. I don’t think it will ever happen again. I can’t say I know who holds the fault or if the shift was necessary, only that it’s happened and we can’t turn back the time….

A Letter to 2017

Dear 2017, Usually I would spend our last days together rounding up all of my accomplishments and putting them into a tidy list to look back on for years to come. This time is different, 2017. I spent a significant portion of this year losing myself time and time again. I began this year setting…

A Letter to November

A Letter To October

Dear October, You’ve been quiet this year. It’s like you haven’t been here at all. I see you everywhere, October, but I do not feel you. I have so much I want to tell you. That I need to tell you. I want to leave it at that, October. I don’t want to keep forcing…

A Letter To September

Dear September, You have been a breath of fresh air, in more ways than one. While smoke filled the sky, my lungs were gripped with a sadness I could not shake. Then you came along before I was even ready. Thanks for that metaphorical slap in the face, September. I honestly really needed that. Although…
