Vulnerable

I wear my heart on my sleeve.  I don’t have a poker face.  But…I also don’t do vulnerability well. Last night I sent an SOS to my female, life-long, heart-to-heart friends.  It was difficult.  One of my friends called me … Continue reading

Crash…bang…boom

So, I crashed my car for the first time today.  I think my track record is pretty good considering that I’ve been driving for 16+ years.  Noone was hurt. I don’t react well to stressful situations.  I am very proud … Continue reading

Day off

Some days just put things into perspective. I needed a day off.  Seriously.  I got up late, threw down a protein shake, and headed off to get a massage and a touch up.  I’m gray, proud, and hiding it every … Continue reading
