I’m no stranger to death. I’ve lost people and pets alike throughout my life, taking both incredibly hard and grieving with pain in my soul. I knew that I adopted a pet, that I would most likely outlive it. I know the lifespan of dogs, especially bigger dogs, and especially especially older dogs. I knew this going in.

Holy cow. 2019. Can I just start this off by saying how freaking excited I am to get this year started?!?! (this was written in early November) It’s now December 13th, and I have to be honest. My excitement has dwindled some. I had a bit of a…kerfuffle. Yes, that’s a word. When I was back in Seattle, one of the most exciting things that … Continue reading 2019: Soar

This year, I found out early that there is a TEDxDetroit event that happens … Continue reading TEDxDetroit
Good God, I have to stop procrastinating these posts! This is a short-and-sweet recap that I had started back in June/July, so I’m just going to post as-is, and move on.

Hence, my ghosting on this site for awhile. Though, I guess I’ve been absent most of the year, so…oops.
