3 Loves 

Original Credit goes to Kate Rose from Facebook- I HAD to re-post this because it hit me dead center in the heart.  My husband was someone I never saw coming. He IS the love I wasn’t prepared for, the love that Wasn’t planned or from Fairy tales.                 …

Anniversary

  Wow. 1 whole year since I started my blogging adventure.  I haven’t blogged as much as I would have liked, but so far, I have connected with great people through this since the start. I hope to continue on these thought provoking conversations.   Thanks to all of my followers

Love

Re-written

I forgot to set this post for Freestyle Poetry Monday. Religion has always been a conflict I battled with majority of my late teen and adult-hood life.

The color outside of the lines

  There has been a storm in this country that has never quite settled down. Sometimes it gets so strong that it blows down trees and rips the roots out of the ground *** I remember working when the news  about Trayvon Martin broke out. I remember that time being chaotic. I had just gotten a promotion…

The challenges of being a Step-Parent

When I was younger and thinking about marriage, I never really put thought into step-parenting. It never crossed my mind that I could possibly be one, one day. Now here I am….constantly trying to find my footing in all of this. My husband and I both had a child from a previous relationship and they both…

Is saving money really that easy?

That is the ultimate question. As a family of five, I found it extremely difficult to save money. When you sign up for a bank account the associate always says, “You should sign up for a savings account along with your checking account and put at least $100-200 into it a month, because you need…
