Here’s to Strong Women

Here’s to strong women. May we know them. May we be them. May we raise them.

Happy International Women’s Day 

There are countless mothers and sisters and daughters and wives and girlfriends and authors and poets that can teach us what it means to be women.

Let’s share wisdom.

Let’s inspire.

Let’s encourage.

She is clothed with strength and dignity and she laughs without fear of the future.

Chase Your Stars

How many of you have ever felt stuck?

I don’t mean you ARE stuck – I mean you FEEL stuck. The world is at your fingertips, but for some reason you decide you just can’t go anywhere. Not yet. Not now. Not with life the way it is.

Guess what.


You get to chase your stars!

I live a charmed life. I have an incredible family. I have an amazing boyfriend. I have a job most people dream of. And, I have the coolest dog in the world.

But lately I’ve felt so stuck. I either have dreams I want to chase, but it doesn’t feel like the right time. Or – I can’t figure out what the next dreams are. Nothing is holding me back; I just feel like there’s nowhere to move.

I’m not a writer. I took the required classes, and did well enough; I just recently graduated from My Dad’s School of Writing and Public Speaking! But throughout life’s tumultuous ups and downs, journaling has been my best release. Writing the thoughts running through my mind onto a piece of paper can quiet my mind and make me feel at ease.

So, instead of letting myself feel stuck –  I’m making a move I’m chasing a star. Maybe it won’t take me anywhere; maybe it will. It’s a step out of my comfort zone, that much is certain. A blog. A public journal, if you will – for all the world to read. And maybe, just maybe it can help someone else feel a little less stuck.

So come on, fools. Let’s chase some stars.

(Thanks, Atticus.)

I love to cook, but it’s not a food blog. I love to workout, but it’s not an exercise blog. I love to craft, but it’s not a DIY blog. I love God, but it’s not a religion blog. I love my family, but it’s not a family blog.

It’s a little bit about a lot! It’s…
