2022 was one of the hardest years of my life. Choosing to end my marriage and move towards divorce was an excruciating decision. The pain that followed was deep and vast. There were days I laid on my office floor and cried. Days where the pain & grief felt almost too much to bear. ButContinue reading “My word for 2023”
A blessing for when everything hurts at Christmas.
I’ve been taking lots of social media breaks for my self care lately. I think we all crave genuine connection, and sometimes social media only makes us feel isolated, especially during difficult times. This blessing has been on my heart to share for a little while. I know Christmas is hard for so many people,Continue reading “A blessing for when everything hurts at Christmas.”
There’s no one way to grieve. There’s no one way to walk through a separation or divorce. I’ve had to feel my way through this fog as best I can, not really knowing what I’m doing.

Lately I’ve stepped away from social media, and had to put my phone away more than normal (both things that are good to do from time to time anyway!).

Some British Paints.
Oh gosh. My time here in the UK is not over yet, but this place has changed me somehow. There are things I didn’t know I needed to see, things I didn’t know I needed to feel – or experience. Maybe it’s just that it’s my first solo trip in so long, and after theContinue reading “Some British Paints.”
