What I Learned in 2014 ~ It’s OK

its ok

A year ago this week, I heard some life changing news. Sometimes, life changing news can be a good thing. This was not one of those times. The reality is that life as we knew it would never be the same. Life changing news has a way of doing that. Good or bad, you know […]

This post may surprise you. It surprises me to admit it. Out loud, at least. I am an anxious person. I have been pushing that down deep inside of me for a long time now. I would pass the blame on other things or people. When it hits me, it’s out of the blue. Through […]

No Talk November

November Reads

Greg and I write everyday in October and then silence… It felt strange waking up on November 1 to realize we were done with 31 Days. But at the same time it was nice to turn the brain off for a few days. Greg and I joked that November would be “No Talk November”. Or […]

We loved writing together again this year. Thanks again to The Nester and the Write 31 Days initiative. We hope you had a couple good laughs at our ridiculous truths… as well as challenged to be a little bit more daring. On a serious note, let us explain why we chose the topic of Truth […]

Today was going to be the day we revealed our One Big Dare. Just like the season finale of your favorite show, we’ll be ending our 31 Days of Truth or Dare with a cliffhanger. Our One Big Dare will have to wait. Why? The truth is… October was a little ridiculous for our family. […]
