The view from inside my bathroom. Charming, isn't it?

I went home sick from work today. It wasn’t the morning I planned, but I logged off my computer around 10:32am. I remember because I usually take my break at 10:30am.

The view from W. River Parkway — my commute home from work.

In December of 2017 I was doing research online and found a small magazine based out of Minneapolis, Minnesota, that I really liked. A few weeks later I was in Southern California visiting family and wandered i...

I thought this photo was fitting because I am kinda, sorta standing out on a limb. More like a ledge. You get the drift. (Chattanooga, Tennessee)

I don’t know if it is a girl thing, or an age thing, or just a Sarah Urban thing, but I feel like I can sit and fantasize and desire all day long.

If you know me well enough, you know that I like to keep very close tabs on how I’m feeling. I’m constantly evaluating, reflecting and taking inventory of what is going on in my blender of a brain. Because of this, I am an avid journaler. The only way for me to ensure...

I’m sitting on my new couch, looking out my wide-open windows, and man oh man do I feel good. Take this with a gulp of perspective because if I’m being honest, most moments of goodness I’ve experienced lately are sticky with a feeling of anxiety and fear. But for the m...
