{Trash Talk} When A Joke Goes Too Far…

I sat on my couch after finishing up a day of work and staring at the sink of dishes I promised J. I’d tackle before he came home.  I don’t listen to KS95 in the Twin Cities, but I used to follow their twitter feed. A mix of self-deprecation and ill-attempts at humor, I usually…

{Buzz} Industry Buzzwords Won’t Define Me…

In 2012, I’m you’ll see a bit of change on the website and within Social Media. We’ve gotten to the point online, that everyone has become a speaker, writer. The labels have truly lost their value. In truth, Social Media has become so common, it’s almost silly to call it out specially or claim it…

{Presence} over presents…

This past year has been a blur with incredible blessings decorating some very difficult months.  Most of all, a year of finding myself, over and over again. This Christmas and Holiday Season I don’t wish for you a tree with gifts underneath, but a spirit that recognizes the gifts, inside. I wish for you  a…

{Cancelling Christmas} Will Best Buy Pull Through?

  You were diligent. It was 3am on Black Friday and  you were online scouring Best Buy’s website for what you wanted to buy.

{July 31st} A Story of Hope…

First and foremost, we are just fine. We found a heartbeat and without any proper diagnosis, I can’t tell you what the golf-ball sized -something- was. They have no idea.  I was still visibly shaking when I started typing this. John and I sat nose to nose in the ER and for the first time…

{Strong} What Strength Truly Means…

    Dear Mr. Perry, America wasn’t founded on a platform of Christianity, it was founded on so much more.  We fought for land of freedom to choose any religion and the freedom to ELECT officials that matched our personal beliefs. America was also founded on the right to practice any believe without scrutiny, or…

{The Strange Part Is}: It’s True

After talking to a friend tonight and filling them in on steamy health gossip and telling myself, “one foot in front of the other,” all I could think of was a vacation destination; someplace sunny and gluttoneous wheat-filled trays of non-gluten-free items. I couldn’t help a moment of feeling stupidly sorry for myself and the…
