Happy Thanksgiving


I just wanted to take a minute to wish all of you a Happy Thanksgiving!! I know from interacting with so many of you that the holidays can be rough on a lot of people. Society’s portrayal of celebrations involving big families, lots of food, and material goods, can, as one person commented, “put a

I Broke Up With Him


I broke up with The Detective Whose Name I Do Not Like. It sucks, I’m bummed, but I’m OK with it. Here’s the thing; He was great. No really, he was. I have absolutely no complaints about him whatsoever. Super sweet, thoughtful, good looking, responsible, etc, etc, etc, and yet I broke up with him

“Will She Survive?”


First off, I know I don’t talk about it much on here for privacy reasons, but the nonprofit is going great! I really can’t believe how far we have come. We are officially a registered 501c3 nonprofit organization, we have an amazing board of founders, the support of the community, and we are hitting the

I Talked To My Ex


So I was basically a bitch for three days straight last week, I’ll admit it. I’m not kidding you, if you stepped in my path you were probably going to catch a nasty attitude from me. You know that look that girls sometimes get that says “if you talk to me I might kill you?”
