Thank you SO much for stopping by!

Just like me, this blog is a beautiful work in progress. We both continue to evolve and grow over time.

The archives are a stark contrast to more recent articles– reflecting where my mind and heart were at the time of publishing.

Currently, I’m fasting from social media– something I do every so often when I get tired of the ads, the people, the fakeness of it all. Instead I’m coming back to this blog as a means of sharing my writing and my voice.

The perfectionist in me relishes in the idea of starting new, with a blank canvas. But in my soul, I feel that would make me another inauthentic, seemingly has all her shit together, blogger trying to sell herself to a world full of people who have more than they need.

So here I am. Standing before you equally in my sparkly light and my shadow.

If you find yourself here, I hope you find what you are looking for. If not, I’d like to thank you for your time and wish you well on your journey.
