Do you trust me? -God

This is the blog post that I envisioned writing a year from now. You see, in a year from now, I’d be able to talk about my dreams with the full knowledge that I was successful and I didn’t fail. I would’ve typed this out in my swanky office (complete with some touches of pink and gold) in a gorgeous all-black outfit with perfect hair and nails and would be making a decent living doing the thing I love most. Problem is…if I wait until things are perfect to share that doesn’t help you or me. So with all the sucking up of pride that I have, here’s my current story:

What’s next?

In the past year I didn’t know if my road was going to lead to writing again. Sharing things that felt so deeply personal can honestly be a scary thing. What I DID know is that if I ever started up this blog again, it would be with this exact moment and this exact story. […]

Beulah Land

The Reverend began to sing in his beautiful and most commanding voice. He stood at the pulpit before he began and explained that my grandmother, my sweet Memaw, had asked him several times to sing this song at her funeral. That day was here.

Moment in May

It has been about two years since this exact moment in May, but the memory is not one that I’ll soon forget. As many of my life changing stories start: I was sitting on my parent’s couch. I had grabbed a brown pillow to hold over my mid section so I could try to relax […]

Motivation with Melissa Marshall

I was going to title this “Makeup with Melissa Marshall,” (which is still appropriate) but every time I read over this interview that I have the privilege of posting I draw out a new piece of motivation from it. I’m so excited to share more about this inspiring lady with you guys!!! I met Melissa […]

Battle of the Blinds

“I. Cannot. Get. These. FLIPPING. Blinds. Closed!” I muttered in my empty apartment room, through clenched teeth. Initially, my inability to get the blinds closed was comical to me. I even took out my phone to record my struggle, which some of you may have seen on my Instagram Story. What I didn’t show you […]

Schrodinger’s Cat

You know what I’ve been thinking about most this week? Schrodinger’s Cat. Science was always my least favorite subject in school. I felt like that part of my brain was never developed as well as it should have been…but this experiment has stuck with me for years and I’m usually reminded of it from time […]

Standing Still

Do you ever get that feeling like you just want to run away from it all? Even if only for a little bit? It doesn’t really matter where. It could be anywhere. Well…actually with all of the snow we’ve been getting here in Wisconsin, somewhere a little warmer and with a little less blizzard would […]

Liquid Patience

coffee and crushes

There is something fiercely precious about those first few moments of the morning for me. It’s peaceful and unspoiled time. It’s another promise of a fresh start, despite however chaotic the prior day ended. Most mornings start the same way for me: I get up after looking at my phone, admittedly longer than I should […]

Behind the Lens with Ashley L. Evans

I am SO excited about this post today, you guys. Before I started this blog up again I had messaged this lovely lady to ask her if I could interview her for it. She almost immediately replied, “Yes!” and now here we are! I met Ashley the same way that I met a lot of […]

Comparison

As I flipped open the crisp and unmarked pages of my writing journal, hit “play” on my trusty Jim Brickman playlist on Spotify, and flicked on the lighter for my caramel cabernet scented candle I thought to myself, “Okay, Anna. Time to make some magic happen.” I had one of those movie moments where I […]
