I Can’t “Contain” Myself

I’ll tell you a little something and some of you might be like, “LOL, WHUT. You are insane.” Well. Maybe most of you will say that. It sorta feels insane. Even I can admit that. Or maybe you’ll be like, “No, that makes perfect sense.” It sorta feels that way, too. I’m at a crossroads where I can either take...


We Deserve a Forever Home. Or Do We?

Every time I start to think I deserve something out of this life, I remember all the people who work so much harder than I do who are hurting and have nothing.

Des Moines VBAC Workshop

I did it. I made it through three weeks living away from my family, three weeks of my field practicum, and three VBAC Workshops (holy crap! That’s a lot to pack in 21 days!)

FireShot Screen Capture #017 - 'What is the point_ - YouTube' - www_youtube_com_watch_v=R9MQF_TxbZM

I’m trying to get creative today and video-blogged in an unusual place. You know the score: if you like ‘em, hit play, if you hate ‘em, come back next time.
