THE STRUGGLE WITHIN – PART THREE

It was late… I was home, had my game face on and was trying my best to be a wife and mom.  I had gone to a festival with my family, met some friends there, and had a good time.  On the sidelines though taking up space in my head were some insecurities brewing.  In…

THE BEGINNING OF THE STORY-PART ONE

There are some things I wonder if this blog can handle.  I mean I committed to honesty and writing out my feelings no matter where they lead.  There are some things though, considering the real world (my friends, my family…they do occasionally read what I write) I am not sure I am ready to handle:…

HOLDING ONTO LIGHT

DRESSED IN RAMMSTEIN

Sitting in the American Airlines Center waiting for Rammstein to perform. It isn’t really my type of music but I bought my husband tickets for his birthday. Getting dressed I had no idea what to wear. Do the fans wear Gothic Corsets? Do they wear tshirts with holey jeans? Are they all going to be…
