This past weekend, I was #blessed enough to go to CABO WABO! Read More
Well, it's Thursday. The sun is shining and it's almost the weekend.Read More
I sat down to write a witty and thought provoking post this week, but I'm struggling.
Last week, I finished reading through the first draft of my novel. AGH! This week, I am editing and revising scenes and trying to make it great. It's a terrifyingly exciting and nauseating experience.Read More
Happy Monday, lovely readers!
How was your weekend? If you didn't know, but I'm sure you probably did, Saturday was Earth Day! And it was unusually chilly here in Dallas. We had a big storm come through Friday night that brought with it a cold front.Read More
How was everyone's Easter? It was a beautiful and sunny weekend here in Dallas, not too hot, just right. Jimmy's mom offered to come over and help us plant some flowers and clean up our backyard.Read More
The Gravity of Us, an all-new gripping and emotional standalone from Brittainy C. Cherry is available now!Read More
Ohh, chello there. Happy warmer weather days, Happy Easter, Happy Passover, Happy bunny and chocolate eating. Is it just me, or do Reese's Peanut Butter Cups taste better shaped as an egg? They do, I don't know why I asked. We have entered into my second favorite time of the year.Read More
Last week I watched (binged) a new show on Netflix called 13 Reasons Why based off the book (with the same title) by Jay Asher. It tells the story of Hannah, a seventeen-year-old girl, who we learn in the first episode has committed suicide. She’s left thirteen tapes for thirteen different people explaining why and how she came to the decision to end her life. This is Hannah’s story, but it’s also the story of Clay, the boy who loved her but didn’t know how to show it, it’s the story of vicious bullies, and adults out of their depth. It’s a shining light on aspects of life that happen every day. It’s also a story about depression and mental health. The show takes an honest and graphic look at teen suicide and its aftermath, and it’ll knock the breath right out of you.Read More
Do you ever feel like you've lost like a month of your life? That when you're sick you get sucked into a dark vortex? And when you emerge on the other side you think "WTF just happened?" Well that was my last week. I got cellulitis in my eye (gross. I mean who gets that?), and it went from bad to worse.Read More
I should probably start this post with a WARNING.
I'm writing it because I believe it will be cathartic, when really I'd prefer to be fetal positioning it somewhere with a box of wine. Yeah, I said box. But like a classy box, I haven't totally lost it. I'll start with the good and end with the bad. That's nice of me, eh?Read More
I personally think the Texas summers are an insult. I might have even panicked a little bit this weekend when the temperature reached high eighties, agh! BUT, I know a lot of you are smiling wide, stretching your arms up toward that bright blue sky, dusting off last years shorts, and welcoming the warmer days to come.Read More
This past weekend, after many hours of St. Patty's Day fun, I came to the realization that sometimes I really hate my body. My feet were tired, my mind was happy, and if I'm being honest, I was a little bit tipsy. We sat down in a restaurant and I watched some of my friends share a deliciously cheesy pizza and another friend eat a yummy looking sandwich on fluffy, fluffy bread.Read More
When you were young, how did you picture your life would be? Were you going to be famous? Did Disney make you dream of a future love story? Were you going to save lives?Read More
Do you ever wish you could float through life without feeling every little knick to your heart or kick to your spirit? That the overwhelming responsibility of our lives just rolled off our back like water over rocks?Read More
I've always longed to be the type of woman who spends her mornings out back in her garden, dirt plastered under her fingernails. The type of woman who makes soups and stews from all her own vegetables. But, in reality, I'm not.Read More
Did you know that the decision to go meatless for a day or for a meal dates back to World War I?Read More
Hello friends and readers!
A big part of my taking on this adventure of writing full time was to get to a healthier place both physically and mentally.Read More
This past week I have been doing a lot of thinking, and reading, and thinking again. A lot changed for all of us last week. A new president was sworn in. Women and men took to the streets by the hundreds of thousands to let their voices be heard.Read More
