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 […]

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 […]

Shears

There is something that feels so wildly liberating about getting a few good inches of dead weight chopped off. Not to mention the salon always uses the best smelling herbal shampoo that makes you feel as though you are one fragrant hair flip away from forging an entirely new life for yourself.

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. […]

23: Do something that scares me.

On February 8th I was scrolling through my phone on Facebook when I paused on a friend’s (Becca) post with the words, “Traveling alone will be the scariest, most liberating, life changing experience of your life. Try it at least once.” I paused on the words and my imagination went wild with the endless possibilities […]
