Why I Cry in Front of My Child

As parents, we often feel the need to come across as the strong protector. The one that can chase away the things that hurt. We put on the band-aids, we comfort, we give advice, and we tell our kids that it's perfectly normal to be sad, and to cry. But for some reason, no matter... Continue Reading →

Barely a Functioning Human Being

Usually, whenever Leander gets sick (which has been more often than usual over the last 6 months) I've gotten off the hook. Last week, I was not so lucky.

I Wrote My Way Into 2019

I've celebrated New Year's Eve in so many different ways. From being far away from home, dinner at my family, partying with friends, random snowball fights, going out, to kissing at midnight. When it was time to celebrate the start of 2019, I wasn't really sure what I wanted to do. I was invited to... Continue Reading →

New Year, New Word

Exactly one year ago I chose the word for 2018, and that word was growth. I sure got what I asked for! 2018 was the year that I learned that I could handle more than I ever thought possible. It was the year where I traveled alone, more than I have ever done. It was... Continue Reading →
