New beginnings

As 2016 comes to a close, I have had a lot on my mind and on my plate. I haven't had a good outlet for all that's swirling in my head. I have wanted to come revive my blog for a while, but after reading a lot of great, successful blogs, I didn't feel I had an angle. A shtick. Something that made me different or compelling.

I still don't. But I spend a lot of time in my car, thinking, and most of the time, I want to put those thoughts into words. The words don't always come smoothly, but I think I am going to try. When I was a kid, I always wanted to be an author. I think that ship has sailed, but I occasionally think of something that makes me feel like I have a few original thoughts.

I also really enjoy looking back at my old blog posts, where I just documented life. I posted about things that had happened over the weekend or what I was eating for dinner, and it was fun. I doubt anyone still reads this, and I don't think I will really be advertising it, but that might make it even easier to write.

So that being said-----I would like to make an announcement. For the first time ever to be posted on the internet----- Collin and I got divorced. I haven't posted that anywhere yet. I am such a facebooker, but it just didn't feel right to post about it. It's not something I want to talk about. But rest assured- I will be ok. I'm not going into the details, but who knows----maybe I'll write about it someday :)

Also, for the first time being posted on the internet, Cooper and I are moving back to Maryland in 3 weeks. I have an endless list of things to do, and things like this are a really bitter reminder that I don't have a partner to "do life" with anymore. We will make it, though. I am nervous, I am excited, I am cautiously optimistic. For a person who doesn't like change or going out on a limb, I seem to do it a lot.


talk to you soon!
She's imperfect but she tries
She is good but she lies
She is hard on herself
She is broken and won't ask for help
She is messy but she's kind
She is lonely most of the time
She is all of this mixed up
And baked in a beautiful pie
