A few weekends ago my family held an estate sale at my grandparents home. A home they spent over 30 years in and where so many of my childhood memories took place. My grandparents are still with us, but are no longer able to live in their home and due to financial reasons, the house had to be sold. Since my husband and I won’t be able to head back to Washington… Read More

Today is one of those days where I wish I could crawl into bed, pull the covers over my head and ride out my anxiety alone and in silence. But the reality is, I’m a work from home mom with a 2 year old to take care of. My husband is gone most of this week and upcoming weekend with hockey so that means it’s just me and Greyson. My day started… Read More

What makes a life well lived and what does this mean to you? I had a therapist ask me this very question when we were still living in Lincoln and to be honest I had no idea what that meant to me at the time. I told her I would think about it for a week, and have an answer for her at our next appointment. During that week, I sat down… Read More

If you can finish that movie quote then I like you already. (The fam at Presque Isle.) My parents and brother have been visiting us here in Pennsylvania since last Thursday and looking back, I have to say moving away from my family when Chris and I got married over 4 years ago was one of the hardest things I’ve done. I was pretty miserable for the first year after we left… Read More

It seems like I haven’t written in FOREVER…but we have been pretty busy. Last week we had our house packed up and we drove over 900 miles from Lincoln, NE to Erie, PA – with a toddler and anxious Frenchie in the car I might add. This is Olive, medicated, because she is such a spaz and can’t handle car rides: We closed on our new house and moved in last Friday…. Read More

I thought I would write this post throughout my long weekend in Austin. Today started off bright and early at 4:45 am. As much as I try, I cannot get my makeup and getting ready routine down to less than 30-40 minutes. If you have any helpful tips or tricks, I would LOVE to hear them. I also woke up to a pounding headache – since I just got my Botox injections… Read More

I've never been a very patient person. Actually that's a huge understatement – I may very well be the least patient person I know. Waiting – whether it be in a waiting room for a doctors appointment or for something I ordered online to get delivered – is not my forte. I can't count the number of times I have left a line at a store because I just really can't handle… Read More

I just wanted to take a moment to thank each and every one of you that read this little blog of mine, every one of you reading means the world to me. It’s not easy sharing personal struggles, but for me, this blog has been so cathartic – a total release of some of the pent up energy and worry that comes along with GAD. I want you guys to see the… Read More

So why write a blog about something as unfunny and serious about anxiety you may ask? Well…I have a twisted sense of humor and I truly believe that if I don’t laugh about my anxiety and the weird things it makes me think and do, I might explode. Just kidding, but I wouldn’t be living a complete and happy life – and I’m just not satisfied living an incomplete life. None of… Read More
