You’ve stumbled onto my personal blog.
I write a little bit about a lot of things. The habit started when I was a kid (hurray for LiveJournal!) and apparently, it stuck.
The most powerful and enduring relationships I’ve ever known have formed around and because of blogging — and as a dear friend once told me, sharing our stories of struggle, strife, and triumph are survival guides for other people. So, I write.
Lately, topics have been largely centered around working through complicated grief (I lost my mother when I was twenty-four and recently accompanied my partner on his journey as he lost his father), why I’ve chosen to be child-free, my struggle to take care of my health while also having an autoimmune condition (Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis), and other–ahem–cheerful topics.
This is where my random thoughts go to live so they don’t rattle around my brain.
I also have separate, more specific blogs about my parrots, favorite recipes my family cooks, stories about my partner’s fight with Lyme / babesiosis, and a professional website about my adventures in WordPress. If you follow this blog, you won’t receive updates about those ones.
Thanks for stopping by!
