Let It Go

You know you’ll have that damn song stuck in your head for the next two hours now. Something happened to me in the last month. I’m not sure why it happened. Maybe I realized my kids are growing up. Maybe I just hit my breaking point and can’t handle any more stress. I don’t know […]

Failure Day 3

Brace yourself, this sh*t ain’t pretty.   Thirteen years ago, I failed as a mother. Thirteen years ago, I was twenty years old. Thirteen years and one day ago, I was “knocked up.” I was what some might refer to as a “hot mess.” I made mistakes. I made wrong decisions about my future and […]

Getting Kids Face To Face at the IMA

We had the chance to check out the Indianapolis Museum of Art’s new exhibition, Face to Face: The Neo-Impressionist Portrait during member preview days a little over a week ago.  Of course, then life happened and I didn’t get to share much about it, so it’s quite possible you’ve already experienced it for yourself.  If […]

Be sure to pointillize yourself at the end of the exhibition!
