I Want a Puppy! For years, I have been asking for a puppy. Like an annoying child, I would bring getting a dog up in any conversation I could. The hubs would say things like “Does this sweater match my jacket?” My response would be, “Kind of but you know what would really match that jacket? A puppy.” We did this dance for a very long time. Then magic happened and I was lucky to secure a new job which allowed me to work from home. We decided it was time. I was naive. I thought I would do a […]
When the reality sets in that you are about to hit a new decade, there are many emotions that you experience. I was certain that celebrating my big 4-0 was going to be on my terms. I wanted to play and feel like a child. I mentioned that I wanted to go to Universal Studios to experience the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and the hubs surprised me with a week’s vacation in Orlando. Not only did we get to celebrate my birthday but we also got to celebrate our 2nd anniversary! I hadn’t been to Disney since my Up […]
Winter is coming. Upon returning from my summer hiatus, I excitedly accepted a position in the beginning of September as a Client Strategist at WebDevStudios. That is correct, I am back to work folks. Taking the summer off to think about my future path was the best thing I could have done for myself. Exploring the country and doing some soul searching helped me accept the position with a clear mind and happy heart. Anytime you start a new position there is an adjustment period, especially at 40. Being the new person is awkward. It is the equivalent of being […]

I love having people from all cultures and backgrounds in the US. I believe that the environment needs more help than the economy. I also believe that finding alternative energy sources could help fix the economy and provide jobs. Marijuana should be legal, […]
A love letter to my College Friends. My introduction to college life did not go smoothly. I had a scholarship and a real taste of freedom. Unfortunately, they don’t always go together. Writing this blog was the hardest one for me. I loved so much about college yet have so few true memories from those days. However, I do know the people I met shaped me, inspired me, educated me, and I will love them forever.
Wheels Down. I landed back in Philly on Monday, July 4, 2016. The significance of it being Independence Day is not lost on me. June was finally over and I was feeling refreshed. It was time to claim my Independence from the things that have been weighing me down. It was time to accept my new reality. I was transitioning careers and experiencing a new decade in a new life. When I first landed in Philly, I felt like there was a cloud above me, perhaps it would be better to say a weight. I wasn’t ready to slip back […]
