I started writing this at 4:18am because it was about 40 degrees in Florence and I couldn't sleep. And what do you do when you can't sleep? You remember that weird period of your life when you were a gymnast and would spend more time walking on your hands than on your feet. When I [...]
I'm not going to pretend like I didn't just aggressively storm away from my new home with a sweaty pink mask dangling off my face and Kiwi struggling to keep up under the blistering June sun because I found yet ANOTHER problem with the house and was convinced for a solid hour that someone had [...]
I have a confession to make: I have a really big cloud of darkness inside of me. Or maybe it's around me. All I know is it's kind of always there.

I, like most, am not a huge fan of the dentist. Having someone drilling, banging and renovating inside of my mouth [...]
