  • Do you believe in miracles?

    Do you believe in miracles?

    I haven’t always been the type of person to believe in miracles. But as of late, I am. When I was in the Wyoming desert, I got a phone call I wasn’t expecting. And from this day forward, Wyoming will forever be known to me as the place where I experienced heartache, grief, and a […]

    An Ode to a Home (pt. II)

    The sun feels different in Hawaii. It’s hot, but not excruciating – it’s more like a hug, a warm embrace. The breeze wraps around your face like a soft shawl.

The way it brings together warmth and coldness. Winter for the way it exposes the earth, strips the trees of its leaves and […]

  • Don’t Forget

    Don’t Forget

    The other day I was eavesdropping on a couple next to me (don’t act like you don’t do it). The lady sat down next to her husband and was reminding him to take his medication, asking him if he remembered to pack Kleenex, and telling him about the long list of to-do’s she has waiting for […]
