Never Too Much

There is so much crazy in my house right now. All four of us are in school. All four of us. It is absolutely insane. The younger one just started 6th grade. The older one is starting her second year of college, working on an Associates in Early Childhood Education, with an end goal of…

Why Hello

I am totally astounded by the fact that I haven’t written since June 1st. I have like 30 blogs sitting in my draft folder that just need photos or to be scheduled.   My apologies. I do have a lot to write about, chronicling the trip to Paris, Venice, Rome, and Naples. I have a…

Big Plans

Things have been a little absolutely, absurdly crazy, hectic, and crappy in my life. But, as always, born in the strife is an amazing idea. I don’t know if it will pan out. I don’t know if it will even sort of work. But, I am determined to make it happen. I am excited, and…

Changing Lives

( featured image stolen from the LA Times ) I feel like everyone has this dream at some point in their lives that they want to make a difference and change lives. I also think that most of us eventually realize that while we can touch and change those around us, on a grand scale, […]…

Rockabilly Villians

This last weekend was a total blast. Saturday was spent cleaning, crocheting, sewing, and watching Netflix. On Saturday night, we took the kids to see A Dog’s Purpose. (Which will make you cry, and is really very good.) But, it was an excuse for me to get out of yoga pants and into something fun….

Too Cold to Ride

In case you’ve never met me, let me tell you an important fact about myself…I am a huge pansy when it comes to the cold. Seriously. If it is less than 75F outside, I am probably wearing at least a light jacket. And if it is less than 65F, I am complaining about how I…

Old Photos

Man oh man, as I go through these old photo shoots and tattoo photos, it is really blowing my mind! There is nothing quite like looking at a 2 year old picture of yourself to notice every bit of toning you’ve lost, every bit of weight you’ve gained, every new wrinkle, and every gray hair!…

Checking In

It has been cold and rainy out here! Flooding, road closures, fences collapsing, trees collapsing, total chaos. So, my life has mostly consisted of staying inside and trying to avoid becoming water logged. However, on Saturday morning, it was absolutely gorgeous! So, we took the kids out to IHOP and enjoyed some sunshine. The rest…

New Year, Similar Me

  I am not huge on resolutions. I think they are a bit ridiculous. Almost no one sticks to them. They are always the same. And in the end, very few people make a real change in their life. That being said, here are mine. 🙂 I’ll try and update each month on how I…

Ugly

Beauty is so many things. Beauty is 300lbs. Beauty is 80lbs. Beauty is white, it is black, it is yellow, it is tan, it is pale. Beauty is a smile. Beauty is laughter. Beauty is tall. Beauty is short. Beauty is strength. Beauty is confidence. Beauty is anxiety. Beauty is depression. Beauty is make up….

Welcome

Welcome! For those that are thinking, hey, these posts look familiar! Well, you are absolutely correct. I am separating my modeling, tattoos, more adult oriented life away from my business, crafting, and crochet blog. You will still see some cross posting, as I have grand ideas to merge my two lives. But, for now, this…
