You are not a rehabilitation center for badly raised men.

You've heard the saying that women aren't rehabilitation centers for badly raised men. I get it. Some women are in situations where they "mother" their significant others or are waiting for them to grow up or change. They feel as if they are still having to raise their partner like they would a child. I... Continue Reading →


The I Word

This might end up as the most raw post I've ever written. There won't be any pretty graphics or editing. I'm actually writing this on my phone. I'm about to really bare myself, my marriage, and my issues to y'all but it's time. Back in 2014, my husband and I moved to GA. We got... Continue Reading →

"We need to be thankful that we're waking up with jobs to get to that provide the kind of lifestyle we want to live, and there are people waking up today praying to God that they can just find a job, any job. We've had much worse Mondays and need to be grateful that these aren't those days."
