I'm possibly 40, a Spoiled Wife, a Mom of a gaggle, a trauma nursing enthusiast and I am an admitted logophile (look it up, it's a thing. And it's why I'm writing this).

My husband and I are certified travel junkies. Any chance we get, we are dropping off the kids and hopping on a plane to wherever we decided is next on our list. I love our life. A couple of weeks ago, my kids were in Florida for Spring Break so we decided ...

I Got A Man (He's Not Tryin To Hear That)
So I was in a 90's music video this morning. Well, it pretty much felt like it. We have a breakfast/brunch spot that we frequent on our solo weekends, and often during the week, on my days off, I will take my laptop there and write. I tend to focus better o...

Dancing With Ghosts
Grief swirled around me like the dense gray fog that had rolled in on Monday morning. I sat down on the moist earth, grass browned from the frigid Chicago winter, and talked to my grandmother's grave. "I'm here," I told her, "I may have been gone physically...

When You've Got A Good Thing.
I just have to brag on my husband for a minute. I KNOW, I talk about how great he is like, all the time, but it's because he's legit, ya'll. Let me tell you this.  I am currently 1800+ miles away in Illinois, being the good nurse-niece and taking care of my...

What Does Your Inner Mean Girl Think? A Discussion On The Imp of the Perverse.
Recently, my BFF
introduced me to a morose poem by Edgar Allan Poe, The Imp of the Perverse, and
the concept surrounding it. Have ya'll heard of

Who Knew National Spouse's Day Was A Thing?
I know I am usually write-happy, but for today, I want to let the pictures do the talking. Because today is National Spouse's Day!  It means something to me, to us, Mr. and Mrs. V, because we fought to get here. We are blessed to be free from the mistakes o...

Lies, Thighs and What I've Realized.
Last week, on my kids' last day of Christmas break, I walked in the house sweaty, exhausted and red faced and tossed my boxing gloves on the kitchen counter. "Mommy...." comes the voice of my daughter from the couch, "someday I want to be a bad butt like yo...
