Parenthood: Finding the light and color again.

Seeing the world through my son’s eyes has brought a vibrancy back into my own world. His world is still full of bright, fun, splashy colors. His heart doesn’t understand or know heartbreak.

A letter to myself.

1:09 a.m. It wasn’t my son keeping me awake. It was myself. The past few months have been hard. I’ve been struggling internally with the idea of a second child. And it’s been shockingly more painful to have on my mind than having my first was. I wasn’t the kind of woman born knowing I […]

Beach week and mementos. 

It all started with a piece of blue sea glass. Blue and purple are colors you don’t typically come across on the beach. It’s always green and brown. On several occasions, white. Then the odd, almost translucent rock that my 17-month old picked up with an excited “Rock!” It had been exactly one year since […]
