Unapologetically Tomato Sauce.

I have this one friend. Everybody likes her. Because she just is. Herself. Consistently. Surely. Wholeheartedly. Self assuredly. She wears her heart, soul and whole self on her sleeve. She tells it exactly like it is. Straight up, no bullshit. She knows what she wears, despite what magazines and everyone else around her says she […]

Everyone is breaking. I don’t know how to put all the pieces back together. I don’t know how to fix them.

Divorce. Breakup. Misscarriages. Rape. Affair. Bipolar. Tourette’s. Domestic violence. Alcoholism. Car accidents. Brain injury. Depression. Cancer. Death. Suicide. Anxiety. Pornography.

Liquid courage.  Legless.  Hangover.  Regret.  Costly.  Escape. Excuse.  Health.  …a few of the reasons this came about. […]

Finding self.

SINGLE. A word I never imagined I would use to describe myself again. I was all lined up to get married, have kids and live happily ever after in our new house. Well, in my mind anyway. Yet here I am, sitting in the middle of my half empty new rental, alone.  Without going into […]

Afternoon catch-up :)

This week has been a bit chaotic, leaving me one big, flustered, and unproductive mess. After some much appreciated guidance and wisdom from friends, family and my naturopath, I am back on track! It is so important to have people in your life, who can pick you up and set you back on the path. Here’s a bit of […]
