Where are my Van Gogh fans?? I was lucky enough to go to the Van Gogh experience last weekend and it was awesome. I went in with high expectations and I wasn't disappointed.

Self-Care And Teenagers
Life is never simple. The stress and the obligations never end. Adulting is completely over-rated. And this is why it's super important to find the fun when you can and find opportunities to relax.

I Wasn’t Ready For My Close Up.
So, I was at little Walmart as we call it. (The one with just the food.) It was an uncommon solo trip and as I was minding my own business, scanning my items, I looked up and I saw it! A mirror! An unforgiving mirror staring right back at me. I was already aware that I wasn't my … Continue reading I Wasn’t Ready For My Close Up.
Does My Daughter Feel Different?
I read a lot about how different transracially adopted kids can feel and it always makes me worry. I like to think that it's not that big of a deal, but I'm sure that's a bit of denial talking.
