Fort Worth Stockyards

Fort Worth Stockyards

Depression has been kicking my tail the last few days. I didn’t want to get out of bed this weekend, but I needed to. The sun has been proven to improve your mood, so hubby and I decided to enjoy the nice weather and head to the stockyards. I truly had a good time, though […]

Kitty Kisses or my cat helping me with my makeup

Friday Funny: Kitty Kisses

Funny animals always make me smile. I’m not a “dog person” or a “cat person,” I’m both. I have a cat (Piggy) and a dog (Sandy), so I have a lot of funny moments at home. Why is it that our pets always want attention when we are in the middle of doing something else? […]

The fear and stigma of prescriptions for mental illness

Doctor visits and prescription medications

Mental illness has always come with stigma and judgement. Not just from outside sources. The internal is the most difficult to overcome. I’m stronger than this! Me, trying to overcome depression without help Personally, I’ve battled with this for years. It became so much worse after the abuse. Survivors are strong! Unfortunately, we also try […]

Celebrating Earth Day

Planting food and flowers for Earth Day

Every Monday, I encourage you to notice the beauty around you. Most of the beauty I see is in nature, I am a country girl after all. Earth day is the one day a year that everyone is encouraged to do something to preserve this beauty. You could ditch prepackaged bottles and get a reusable […]

Dog in shoes

Shoes for Dogs: Friday Funny

It’s that time of year. “Spring” in Texas. For those who don’t know Texas weather, that means the potential for triple digit heat. Recently, I decided to start spending more time outside. A great way to do that is by walking Sandy instead of just putting her out in the yard. As a pet parent, […]

Save a life

How to Save a Life

I gave blood yesterday, but that’s not what I’m talking about. (Please focus on my smile, not the lack of makeup) As survivors, we doubt our worth. This is a fact that I hate admitting. I try to appear strong and confident, but I still hear his voice telling me I’m worthless. That’s why I […]

Texas Blue bonnet

Texas Bluebonnet

It’s that time of year again. Bluebonnet season. As a Texan, I have a love/hate relationship with this beautiful flower. First, a little about this flower. The Texas Bluebonnet is the state flower of Texas. Many people say it has no scent at all, but others (like me) say it gives off a sickly sweet […]

Piggy and Sandy stole my seat

Friday Funny: Protective Pets

Funny animals is the #1 search on my YouTube. Even on my darkest days, pets can make me laugh. And my favorite 2 are my fur babies, Sandy (dog) and Piggy(cat). Sometimes they really drive me nuts though. The above picture was taken after I walked to the kitchen and returned to these little brats […]

Leaving an abuser is NOT a failed relationship!

Overcoming the stigma of DIVORCE

I’ve been married more than once. This is “frowned upon” in various circles. Don’t worry folks, I’m not calling anyone out (but if you feel the pinch, I don’t mind stepping on toes). Before we begin:Trigger Warning! I will post calming pictures throughout this post. If you feel your anxiety building, focus on the picture […]

Not all who wander are lost

The Beauty in Getting Lost

Being a Jeep girl, this phrase is on my timeline a lot. Not all who wander are lost is true, to an extent. The thing is, I enjoy getting lost. You never know what you might find. Recently, I went to Red Robin with some family. If you’ve never been, it’s a burger restaurant with […]
