Haircuts {or: Letting Go}

Haircuts! {or: Letting Go} These guys are my heart, but they won’t pose for a picture without acting goofy unless I employ a lot of coaxing….or we’re on a field trip. In public. And sometimes that doesn’t matter. But it’s spring break and we’re just enjoying our Seattle Staycation!! PJs, Fortnite, dog parks, bus rides, and more!! But first: today was waking up with Spongebob, making … Continue reading Haircuts {or: Letting Go}

‘To My Very Best Friend’

She was my first best friend outside my family. We were inseparable and dreamed of growing up and raising horses together. My best childhood friend lost her battle to cancer today.

I wanted so badly … Continue reading Ovarian Cancer: Reflections on 2016

Bikurgurl Monthly Planner/Journal, A Do-It-Yourself Guide – Step 2

Note: I started writing this post with an entirely different title and realized as I was looking for my poetic love of my Franklin Planner in days of yore {yep, that’s how I like to think of my past!} that I had actually started this guide months ago….that line in church is ringing true as ever with, “all the things I’ve left undone”! Sorry for … Continue reading Bikurgurl Monthly Planner/Journal, A Do-It-Yourself Guide – Step 2
