Birdie the Cat

About six weeks ago I became obsessed with the idea of adding a kitten to our little family. Gus and I had gone to the hardware store to pick something up, and we ended up meeting the hardware store's newest employee, a tiny little gray cat named Grayson. Gus was so sweet and curious about the kitten, we stayed to pet and play with it for at least fifteen minutes. All of a sudden I felt like I needed to have the boys experience having a small animal to nurture and take care of. A little FYI, READ MORE

Creativity is v Cool

Friends, I don't mean to sound like a whiney baby or anything, but I've had so much on my plate over the last 7 months.

Last week was my 34th birthday and I spent all weekend celebrating, because I like birthdays. My brother and I have birthdays that are three days apart, so when our birthdays fall on a weekend there is lots of very important things to do.

Welcome Back, Inspiration!

Hey Guys! First of all, I have to say thank you so much for all your comments in my last few posts. You have all made it known that I am not alone in this fight. I hope that I am able to return the favor or pay it forward someday. Seriously, thanks. I've been spending the last week being really gentle with myself. I have not given myself too many or tasks or duties as to not overwhelm myself. I've spent a lot of time thinking about how I got here, to this deep dark stupid pit of depression. READ MORE
