Dear The Girl You Once Were- a link up with The Story Sessions

Dear The Girl You Once Were- The Woman You Became & The Woman You Are Today, From the time we met, through the summers, into our first days of living together, I remember the girl who I was so attracted to. I knew it was special between us from the very beginning. It was your edge; [...]

A Community of Brave Voices: She Loves Magazine Guest Post

I belong to a community of brave voices waiting to be read. What gets me out of bed in the morning, apart from my husband, son and dog, is knowing that there are women in my private communities whose voices are waiting to be read; and they are waiting for mine. We come with cries for [...]

Naked Truth: Rebelle Society Guest Post

There is no way to dress it up for you not to judge, or for my eyes not to pour quarter-sized tears as I voice my shame. I cannot place my naked truth into poetic flow for it to roll off your tongue, so I am just going to say it: My husband and I [...]

Unexpected Wounds- Thriving vs Surviving

Unexpected Wounds- Thriving vs Surviving

I never expected my greatest wound to happen. That experience was for others and not for us. We knew who we were. We had a firm hold on our marriage vows. We walked the line between breaking and keeping, tightly. We watched our steps, carefully. We were careful not to cross over. We lived in [...]

Today I am both Grieved and Heartened

Today, I am both grieved and heartened: grieved by the loss of our marriage story as I once knew it; heartened that while a beloved story has been lost, another story is being written. Three years ago today, we plunged ourselves into a fit of truth- the day we’ve since named, Revelation. The day, clenched [...]

Oh, Charleston

Oh, Charleston

Tony and I celebrate 19 years of marriage on the 26th of November and we decided to spend some days of celebration in a city we’ve not visited before- Charleston, SC. I don’t know why we’ve not been until now. It is only a 4.5 hour drive from our home in Atlanta and it has [...]
