Hey there. It’s been a hot second. Life has been grabbing me by the horns and it’s taken me on a wild journey, away from writing for a while. I’ve been told that writers go through these different seasons. Some call them writer’s block, others call it a slump, but I don’t really see it… Continue reading 2017 // Concrete & Connections.
Easter Saturday. Not something that you typically think about when “Easter weekend” pops up in your mind. There’s Good Friday: a dark day before the word “good” was ever attached to it. There’s the image of Jesus, carrying the weight of the literal world on His back, up the mountain and onto a cross that… Continue reading Wrecked in Resurrection
Why, hello again. I know, I know, you thought you were all free of my late night ramblings and overly emotional thoughts.

This past weekend, I did something I could have never predicted eight months ago. I threw myself a going away party. A going away party wouldn’t have made much sense if I was still engaged, planning on getting married in a frighteningly close 15 days at the time. Instead, I am not engaged. My closest… Continue reading Facing and Fighting Fear with Kronk
I am finally able to fulfill my dreams of my favorite emoji: the salsa dancer girl. 💃 This year has been one of pain, growth, discovery, adjustment, and most importantly, one of self. My mother has always told all four of her children that your twenties are for learning who you are and what you want to… Continue reading Viva España
