    2020-02-06 A Serious Reality Check

    Spoiler Alert… It’s not all rainbows and butterflies (though I’ve had a lot of both very recently). There is a story that most of us are taught, about life. A story that starts with beautiful beginnings and continues to wind its way through a path of happiness and wonderful moments. We are told that if […]

    2020-01-24 One Way to Start a Friday

    I woke up shortly after 3am and was immediately consumed by thoughts about everything going on. A veritable Rolodex of current events. 1. 8 days until the wedding. 😱 2. Cleaning the house for the party. 3. Being so scattered I missed my sisters birthday lunch and wondering if she’s going to hold it against […]

    2020-01-17 The Perfect Storm for Dissolving Doubt

    It feels like a Saturday because everything is closed. The radar when we woke up today looked like something from the movie “The Day After Tomorrow”. A storm cell covering 1/4th of the country, starting in Minnesota and going all the way down into Texas, covering all of Nebraska moving slowly into Iowa. School was […]

    2020-01-14 A Fast Moving Train

    Full speed ahead. 18 days to go and last night before falling asleep I touched my forehead to his forehead in bed and asked for him to help me with my anxiety. He promised me it would be alright and that when it comes to it, he’ll talk me away from the edge. That’s all […]

    2020-01-10 Frying Pans and Forest Fires

    One of my goals at Residency is to blog my experience every single day. I almost made it. 8 out of 10 days made their way into the official record. Then things just started moving way too fast and my priorities and desires went elsewhere (appropriately). At the time I thought to myself that I […]

    2019-12-21 Winter Solstice Baby

    We had a great Friday night last night hanging out and talking and randomly flipping through shows to watch, though we never found one. It feels a rare treat to get that QT with my fiancé with no kids and no obligations to go anywhere or do anything. For a long while we just hung […]

    2019-11-24 The Current Trifecta

    It feels like time is moving too fast. At the same time the minutes and hours of every day seem to creep by. I’m keeping a close eye on the calendar and have a growing list of things to do. Most of it has something to do with one of three main topics.. wedding planning […]

    2019-11-19 Signed, Sealed, and (being) Delivered

    Today’s post is brought to you by the least bridezilla bride to be of all time. Yours truly, Miss SugarCookie. I literally have to be the most easy going bride to be of all time. Either that or I have not hit that wall yet where I’m freaking out about every detail getting sorted. Don’t […]

    2019-10-26 Much Ado About a Wedding

    It’s official.. the final countdown is here! It’s 99 days until I make a vow to spend the rest of my life with another person. Like a lot of big decisions in life, I have doubts and fears but I think that’s always going to be the case. It’s just the Way of things. Am […]

    2019-08-05 The One About Dresses

    I’ve been awake since 6am and it’s 10 til 9 and I’m finally getting down to some serious thinking. Serious like cats milling about the living room deciding on the best place to nap. So, yeah, pretty serious. The weekend went by like a bullet and I dodged a direct hit, for the most part. […]
