offering perspective to grieving hearts by sharing my life of love + Loss.


“ I hope my words crack a broken heart wide open,

so that it has a chance to crumble & breathe.

Only after we fall apart completely

can we see how the pieces will fit back together again. “

- me.

There might have been a few different things that brought you to my page, any of which I’m glad caught your attention. Whatever it was, my hope is that you’ve come here to dig a little deeper. Here you will find a home for your tender heart, a companion in hard times. Someone to celebrate all you have been through and


everything you have yet to. Someone to say it’s ok to eat that cookie and cry a little longer, but also someone who tells it like it is and will give you a good kick in the ass if you need it. Basically, I’m your friend, sharing with you my daily up’s + down’s, my musings on living this life after loss.

my greatest pleasure is sharing my son’s story.

by reading these words, his memory is kept alive + my pride swells. He was courageous - we all were - in a terrible and frightening time.

he is the reason I share.

He is my courage and my heartbreak.
