Will There be Cake?

I have Lyme. I’d like to not have it anymore. I also just want cake.

When Getting Better Looks Ugly, And Why It Should.

This is not a post I’ve wanted to write. Most who know me or have known me in “real life”, know that I am a very private person. In fact … Continue reading

Acceptance: The Human Experience.

I can’t sleep. So I figured I’d ramble. “Happiness is letting go of what you think your life is supposed to look like and celebrating it for everything that it … Continue reading

Open Letter to my Opposition

My own version of thank you notes. Like Jimmy Fallon’s Friday night Thank You Notes. Except with a twist… more serious, less funny, no sarcasm, and 100% genuine. So actually … Continue reading

“I have Come to Accept People’s Lack of Long Term Compassion”

If you read anything on the internet these days, you probably recognized my title. We are almost force-fed Yolanda Foster’s Lyme journey as literally everyone shares literally everything she says. But … Continue reading

Instagram? Hit. Me. Up.

Just a little throwback of us four-ish years ago ❤️ #dctemple #dc #ldstemple I scoured my pictures looking for one of my dad today, and every one was either of him performing some sort of service for one of us kids, or looking at rocks and plants (so my dad). I found this one and it just touched my heart. Not only do I reflect on how much my dad means to me this time of year, but I also reflect on my brother who passed on just days before Father's Day in 2009. This picture is of the two of them - dad has helped all of us kids over the "rocks" in our lives, but this picture especially melts me. 
So thankful for Dad ❤️👴🏼 I know I keep posting puppers. Deal with it. Because my sister and I took her dog to the mall the other day and his little Macy's escalator butt was too cute not to share. 
Also swimsuit shopping was a fail. Per usual.

#perksofpuppersitting #slc #saltlakecity #slccapitol #sunsets #frenchie Dustin's photography strategy is rapid firing a million shots in the hopes I will like one instead of using any artistic liberties. This is one from about 8 of me putting a hat on backwards after I posed for an actual shot, so I promise I wasn't trying to look cool. 
But gall dang. Too cool for school. 😎
