Essay 13 of 52: Talent
So this was pretty cool. I keep clicking on that link - like it might have gone away over night. Seeing my own work on someone else's site is totally surreal. My mom asked me a few months ago if writing was hard. It is. I think anyone who dabbles with writi...

It's a snow day today. Classes are cancelled. Work is cancelled. Practice is cancelled and all I can see is white. Snow is such a balm to this mountain girl's heart. I grew up in the woods of New Mexico. I grew up with no backyard boundaries and pine trees ...

Essay 11 of 52: teaching, but not a teacher

Essay 10 of 52: Ugly
Can I be honest? Sometimes marriage brings out the worst in me. Sometimes I am selfish and bitter and fickle. And I hate that. Typically, when I'm writing my weekly essay, the subject comes easy. I write about thoughts I've had, conversations that have take...

Essay 6 of 52: Nerves

Essay 5 of 52: Release
Release is my word for 2015. When I decided to choose a word for this upcoming year, I thought a lot about what my goals were. I thought about how good it felt to leave Zumba in 2014. To have Monday nights open again, to have room for something new. "Releas...
