Health was never the problem

Maybe you're wondering why I haven't commented on the Nike mannequin and the resulting shit show on the internet. ARE you wondering that? I know some of you have sent me links and articles or tagged me in your mentions. So why haven't I had my say yet? Why haven't I...

We grew up together (a post about relationships)

You know the story; Kel and I met when we were barely twenty. Engaged six weeks later, broke the news to our families a few months after that. Then married at 22, moved around a lot in the same town, had some businesses but didn't have babies. You know, CliffsNotes...

How to handle your big energy (for good)

Shit, I did it again!

Three weeks without a blog post, team. Almost four, but who's counting. How did I let this happen? AGAIN. And I'm not beating myself up about it. I'm just determined to update you more often on what's going on around here. The Chicken Pesto Pasta Salad was great, but...
