It's a great feeling to get the thoughts out of my head and on to paper. It clears the space for more. Honestly, it's a win win.

And so, in my deepest and darkest hour of missing my parents, missing my husband, feeling like a completely inadequate mother, and a total business failure, I dove into a bag of chips. I knew what I was doing. I was completely aware. I told myself to put the bag down, but I didn’t…. until I did. Continue reading here.....
