The Most Precious Gift

The best thing my dad ever gave me was himself. While I had to share him with my three sisters, I still had all of him, all the time. Being emotionally available and present for your daughter, no matter the time of day or how busy you may be, is what truly makes a good…

2013 In Pictures

January My niece, Hailey, was born! She’s adorable and my two-year-old nephew calls her “Haywee” which makes her even more adorable somehow. To me, she is Baby H or Hays. Also, I endured one of the worst allergic reactions of my life as far as non-life-threatening allergic reactions go. I spent the better part of…

The Day We Said “I Do”

Now that I’m back home from an amazing honeymoon and semi-caught up on work, I can finally get back to blogging! So many times throughout the past two weeks I have wanted to write but just couldn’t find the time. SO happy to be back in a routine at home and able to slow down…

An Interview With My Mother

No, it’s not Mother’s Day. Yes, this is an interview with my mother. Why? Because she is funny and has some good perspective on life. She raised four daughters and lived to tell about it. She once had major brain surgery because my sisters and I literally made her lose her mind. Okay, not really.…

Post-Vacation Blues

Lunches are packed, laundry is folded, and my alarm is set to 4:30 am. I guess this means vacation is officially over for me. Being away from Topsail Island, my family, and the fresh sea air has given me a serious case of post-vacation blues. I went for a run today to try and get…

One Year of Blogging

Well, I meant to post this on February 26th because that was my one year blogging anniversary, but this past weekend was jam packed with schoolwork and catching up on sleep. It has been one year since I made my first post, I Think You’re Awesome. In one year I have written 126 posts (10…

What I Don’t Miss

Because my What Do You Miss? Post was a little nostalgic and a lot depressing, I felt the need to create a What I Don’t Miss list. What I Don’t Miss Dating. Sure, I miss the excitement of a first date and the “I wonder where this will go” thoughts, but overall, I don’t miss…

What Do You Miss?

Every day I am emailed a blogging topic from WordPress. It is part of a “post every day challenge” that they have. I definitely don’t have the time to post every day, and rarely find their prompt ideas interesting, but this particular prompt made me think. It was simply “what do you miss?” So here…
