How Did We Get Here?

Last month I was reminiscing about a spur of the moment road trip to Boise, and this month I’m taking it up a notch. That’s right! 1 car, 2 people, 8 hours and a country border. I am not necessarily advocating for anyone to drive 8 hours to cross a country border just to say…

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 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.

A Letter To July

Dear July, I want to start by saying thank you. You were not perfect, but you were just what I needed. You took me on weekend getaways and got me out of my shell more than I have ever been before, July. I can’t imagine where I would be now without that. Just for this…

A Letter To June

Dear June, What a whirlwind you’ve been. I did not expect for my life to be going in this direction. What direction that is, I’m not quite sure. It’s new and uncertain and so very different. Everyday I am faced with reminders of how different things are from the last time. Or really, how different…
