Quiet Time Re-Imagined

I am unsure how to enter back into the writing world as everything feels different now. All the things I’ve ever heard about motherhood all make sense. It’s like I have new eyes for all things. At this moment, I couldn’t even begin to sum up what bringing our little one into the world was… Continue reading Quiet Time Re-Imagined

All About Apples & Tradition

When Mr. Engineer and I moved back to Georgia after living in South Florida, we fully embraced the change of seasons since they didn’t really exist during our short and sweet time in South Florida. Even though I am a beach bum at heart and love warm weather and salt air, there was something strange… Continue reading All About Apples & Tradition

Jealousy is ugly and nobody wears it well, including me. Jealousy… Continue reading Not What I Wanted

Breaking up with Back Pain

All I could hear were leaves crunching beneath my hiking books as we made our way around another curve of the trail. Leaves were falling, adding to the ocean of burnt red and orange. There wasn’t another soul on the trail besides Mr. Engineer and I; perhaps the wildfires burning nearby had scared all the… Continue reading Breaking up with Back Pain
