2021. It’s good to see you. It’s also good to see this blog, which I apparently haven’t updated in almost three years. So consider this a new start in all forms. We’re two days in to a new year and approaching some things that way has already helped me considerably. There’s not a lot toContinue reading “Hello from the other side”
Charlie, Today you turn ONE YEAR OLD! What?! Just yesterday you were our little baby and now you’re a big kid! It seems as if you’ve just gotten here but at the same time, as if we’ve never known life without you! I’ve been wanting to write something to you on here, especially, to keepContinue reading “Happy birthday, best friend!”
What did living my best life look like in second grade? Apparently it involved roller skates. And working toward that elusive two block adventure.. Can we also pause for the cause a moment though and appreciate how good I was at cursive at age 7 and a half?

Y’all. Seven-year-old me was pretty great to have in a crisis.

However, before I go ANY further, a disclaimer: Everything in this post – like in any others I write – is completely my own opinion and experience. I don’t claim to know everything, especially on this topic, but I know what I feel inContinue reading “On breaking up with church…”
Just when you thought the well might be running dry… I found my second grade journals. I had the same teacher in second and third grade so we had the same kind of daily writing prompt thing both years and I’m real glad I kept them all because there are some real gems in there,Continue reading “#tbt: Tales of a second-grade Laura”
I’ve tossed around a couple book ideas off and on in the past couple of years, and I really want to write one of essays just about my life because I’m funny and interesting shit occasionally happens to me. The other one is most definitely going to be about dating. I mentioned it in aContinue reading “A Book on Dating”
