• Motherhood Changes You

    I have always cared for others more than I have cared about myself, but motherhood really brought out a different side of me. There have been several changes in my life since the day I found out I was going to be a mom. I have been preparing myself mentally, physically and emotionally since day one, but regardless of how many times I have told myself “I got this,” I have flipped my lid.

  • Lessons From A Cracked iPhone Screen

    I thought I would be upset, but I actually smiled a lot more. Getting out of the car one morning, I told myself I should place my phone inside the jogger compartment with my keys.

  • No Matter Where Life Takes Me, I Have My Honda

    To some people a car is just another form of transportation. But for me, it is my sanctuary.  Even before I passed my driver’s license test I knew the car I wanted. I had my eye on a white Nissan Altima. I always joked with friends saying I could chip off the “A” and the “L” and be driving a “TIMA,” like my nickname. But when I got my license and was saving for my first car, all I could think of was a white Honda Accord sedan. I remember the endless search on Craig’s List to find one that was
