I've been keeping journals since I was in the 3rd grade and I'm so glad to share some of my most intimate life moments with you here!

Here, you do NOT have the right to remain silent, so as you read, grab your favorite snack and drink and leave a comment...share YOUR story. I can't wait to connect with you in this beautiful safe space.
