When I was a younger woman…ahem…I had some notions about who I would be and what I might be like when I got “older” (like maybe say in my 40’s). I imagined that I would have some things nailed down, frayed edges made smooth and dusty corners made tidy. Fear would no longer be a
Welcome to my blog
So, who are you, really? Often when I think of this question, I would identify it more closely with younger people.

It’s not because you share a common experience although that’s a possibility. The pull isn’t from a shared history or years of life walked together. Most likely what you
There is something really special about those friends that you’ve known your whole life. When I went away for the weekend with that group of friends this summer I tried to explain this to my husband. I don’t know that words do it justice. Most of us have many different types of friends in our
