Perspective

Perspective is a tricky thing at the best of times; it’s hard to gain, hard to use, and easy to lose. Even harder is to know when you’ve lost it until after the fact. We have a Sunday morning tradition of breakfast burritos and walking on the beach to talk about our week. It’s an …

I am tired

I am tired

Life is behind (as per usual!) but when isn’t it? A new job for me. A new career for Paul. A new household member  (Selena). Our 5 year anniversary together / 2 year wedding anniversary. The good news is we’re settling back into a routine just in time for my 39th birthday.  How the hell …

It’s been a year already?
