Memories Take Us Back. Dreams Take Us Forward.

Las Vegas native, residing in Iowa.
I am married to a former Marine. Taking it one day at a time, raising two miracle babies. We baby wear, co-sleep, co-bathe, breastfeed and formula feed.
I am struggling with Depression, Bipolar Disorder, Onychophagia (compulsive nail biting) and recovering from Self Harm. These are my stories and this is my recovery. If you want, you're welcome to join me.

Living one day at a time, enjoying one moment at a time, accepting hardship as a pathway to peace.

Bob Ross used to be a drill sergeant but quit because he hated having to shout at people. 

That at is why he always talked in such a calm voice.

Bob Ross is probably my favorite human being on television

He is the reason why I started painting.

Five years ago today J came back from Iraq. We had another first kiss, a first hug and I fell in love all over again.

Its one of the few moments I will remember for the rest of my life.

I’m feeling homesick tonight.

The past two days were filled with lightning, rain and thunder. Those are days that I love. Now today is feels like 17 degrees because of the wind chill. 

Isaac is still sick. I haven’t gotten his results back for pertussis yet and I’m pretty anxious about it. He seems to be getting better, but not fast enough. I’m not sure what’s going on. We have antibiotics and something to help him breathe, but no one can give me any answers. I’m about to lose my damn mind. He’s smiley and giggly, when he’s not hacking, but at least he’s some what happy. Lilly is over her sickness and is back to her normal self. Things are going pretty well around the house.

I see a hand specialist at the end of the month for my finger. I’m sure they’ll have to do surgery. The only good thing about that is my mom will come out and help me with the kids since J can’t take off any time from work. I’m not 100% but we’ll cross that bridge when we get there.


Inspired by this amazing artist. Her work always cheers me up so I thought it would be nice to draw something positive like the beautiful things she usually draws.

This was shared onto my facebook feed and I really thought it described ADHD really well, for how I experience it anyway. Promise it’s not spam or anything. Thanks for running this blog, it’s really helped me feel like less of an outsider.
