Thanks-grieving

There are times of the year when being estranged from one’s unchosen family feels particularly pronounced. It likely goes without saying that Thanksgiving is one of those times. Thanksgiving is my mother’s favorite holiday, and I always made it a point to be with her...

Find Your Tribe. Love Them Hard.

If I had to describe this year in one word, I would title it: Connection. This year, I lost one of the greatest influences in my life in physical form. And also realized the power of the unbreakable bond of authentic connection in many profound ways. I have connected/...

If You Don’t Have Anything Nice to Say…

Happy Monday, Daily Feelers!  It’s Monday of Thanksgiving week and since it’s a time to be grateful, I thought I’d start the week off with a little reminder we might all need: If you don’t have anything NICE to say, shhhhhh.  Read it again.  If you...

It’s November, Feelers- the month of Gratitude and Thanksgiving.  Facebook is filled with daily gratitude posts, and I love reading them!  These posts are good for a variety of reasons, but the two reasons I connect with most are:  1) The posts are a...

This is Almost 40

Two years ago, I realized that I was looking down a quickly shortening barrel towards 40. How could it be possible that this quintessential Millennial (minus not trusting the cloud for anything) was quickly aging out the advertiser-friendly demographic? Alas, despite...

“Tales From The Burnt Out Bride”

I’m getting married in exactly 32 days. December 12, 2021. We picked the date because we thought it would look cool on all of our stuff as 12/12/21. But, the closer my wedding date gets, the less I want to have a wedding at all. It’s not that I don’t want to get...
