Love the One Your With

It’s the time of year for a ton of love stories to infiltrate your feed. It makes sense. Cupid is all over stores, the Internet, marketing campaigns and more. This isn’t that post. How we met doesn’t work well for our love Story because we slowly developed a love. By slowly, I mean 6.5 years. …

They’re In

Living with Disappointment

“Life isn’t always fair. That is something that my mother often told me. As a kid, I expected things to be fair. Early childhood predisposes you to that concept, everyone gets a cupcake, an award, but we aren’t all the same. We won’t have the same experience even if we go through the exact same …

Days and Days

I’ve been on hold for three days. Yes, you read that right. For three, very long days I have been trying to sort out E’s latest insurance issue. You see, last month I received a letter. It said that E was approved for one type of insurance, another had ended (due to us making too …
