When Instagram Ruins Your Day

It happened again this week. That pit in the stomach, that flush of the face, that feeling of shame and discontentment, right in the midst of a particularly beautiful day in my own life. And it had been a lovely day. The warm summer sun stretched into the cool breeze of the approaching Fall, creating […]

The Last First Day.

Are your bones aching as a result of my unceasing chatter surrounding the beast that is nursing school? I don’t blame you. Mine are, too. And I promise to keep the discussion (ahem, whining) about this blessed season of our lives to a minuscule minimum this semester. BUT BEFORE I DO I HAVE TO SAY ONE MORE […]
