Hello. It’s me again.

It’s  been an embarrassingly long time since I’ve written. So much so, that I was fairly certain it was too late to try this again. My self-talk said, “You failed at this whole blogging thing AGAIN. You dare not show your face in the blogosphere, and hopefully people will forget you ever tried in the […]

Rambling and Reveries: Wednesday Edition

This afternoon, I opened up a checking account for my graphic design slush-fund money. I feel like a grown up, or a stepford wife. I can’t decide which. Does anyone else ever feel too anxious or emotionally exhausted for tv? Instead of the usual nightly Netflix with my husband after our kids go to bed, […]

Shit from Today

We have a lot of stressful, sad, awful crap going on in our lives right now, and it’s totally messing with my ability to write anything coherent and not completely depressing. Therefore, I’m going to take the pressure off, and just share some random shit about my day.    If I had a quarter for every […]

Be Kind.

After my last post about my struggle with depression, I had several friends reach out to me and share their own stories of depression and mental illness. In most cases, I had no idea that they suffered from the same haunting demons of depression as I do. In several situations, I was pretty surprised to find out they struggled […]

My War with Depression

I’ve wanted to write about depression for quite some time. I wanted to be authentic with my friends and readers,  to raise awareness, be relatable to others who struggle,  and to help end the stigma associated with mental illness. The problem is, I’ve only ever attempted to write about it when I’m stuck firmly in […]

Just Call Me Detective Lindsey: Part 2.

Just Call Me Detective Lindsey: Part 2. Picking up where my story left off, my sister and I were headed to Kentucky to investigate and solve the mystery of the thing. My sister stayed in the car with the kiddos and I jumped out, camera in hand, and ran up the hill. I snapped a couple of […]

Day 18: Catitude

  My Happiness Project. Day 18. Just like the rest of the internet, cats and their catitude rate pretty high on my list of things that are awesome. We have 2 cats, Cora (pictured above) and Mila (pictured below). Typically, they stare at me with glowing eyes full of hate, like they’re planning my ultimate demise. This week, […]

Just Call Me Detective Lindsey: Part 1

Just Call Me Detective Lindsey: Part 1. Do you have any mysteries that you wonder about on a fairly consistent basis but never take any steps to solve? My husband and I have had one such mystery… until I solved it. A year or two ago, construction began on some new apartment buildings on a road […]

Day 17: Running Water

My Happiness Project. Day 17. Running water might seem like a strange addition to my list, but there are a multitude of reasons for this appreciation. First and foremost, having clean water piped straight into our faucets to drink, cook, and clean with is an obvious win. We are an extremely fortunate generation, living in […]
