Hello Paper, I'm Pen…


The Daily Life

New Ventures, New Adventures

It’s been lord knows how long since my last update.

I’m more than pleased to share with you all my newest ventures and adventures.

Say hello to my wonderful and smart 11 month toddler, Leah.❤️

Additionally I’ve gone the route of starting up a small business (yay!)

Otherwise, life has been relatively quiet.

Hopefully I get to post more on the blog this year for sure.

See you all soon:)


I Have Not

This is my first post to my blog in over a year. That in itself is pretty tragic.

I intend to change that.

And For These I Give Thanks

Again, I am attempting to get back into the swing of things (as I have been for the last two years or so– humor me). As I am certainly not at the point to jump back into story writing head-on, I figured it would be a nice change of pace to do some daily life updates here and there.

Where do I start? a synopsis of my year so far….maybe?….or maybe just a reminder of all that I am thankful for.

2016 I Thank You:

  • You’ve taught me much about love and life in itself.


  • You’ve brought me much tears. Even more so I’ve been blessed with an abundance of love and laughter that even I cannot begin to comprehend.
  • You’ve blessed me with the perfect little human growing inside of me. One of life’s greatest gifts (move over Santa, my gift is way better!)


  • You’ve taught me to challenge myself, aim even higher and that wading out into murky waters has its benefits.
  • You’ve taught me that a change in career fields was not a matter of qualification but rather a matter of work ethics and how well I apply myself.
  • You’ve taught me that nature itself is a healing force.


  • You’ve taught me to appreciate the beauty of travel and what it does for the soul.


  • And above all you’ve taught me the value of family, friends and self love.loveAt times I’ve felt 2016 has been my most challenging year. But then I look back at all that has transpired and remain humble and truly thankful. Thankful for life, love, happiness, success and all that I’ve experienced.

I Don’t Think I’ve Shared…

I don’t think I’ve shared my new do with my blog. I cut my hair off about a month ago 🙂 


Dear Universe

Dear Universe,

I am calling out to you right now, I am not sure if you’re even listening. But if you are, I ask for tolerance, peace, and never ending cosmic balance. 

I know that my deeds may not always reflect the pureness of my thoughts. I know that I need far more than a bandage to mend my damaged heart. I know that I am young and far from wise.

I seek your light. A beacon leading to the path for which I was destined to tread. I seek your light, in this extreme hour of darkness.  I seek your light because I am no longer sure of what to seek.

Universe, in my hour of need I seek only the purest of vibes, an ever present reminder that my pleas have not fallen on deaf ears.

I will continue to seek. Until then… Peace and light.

I’ve Decided To Break From Blogging/ Writing For A Few Months

I’ll be making the blog private. No posts. I will notify all upon my return.

Christmas Cheer Update

I’ve been grossly lacking in Christmas cheer this year ( oh the rhyme!). Though  I’ve never been big on celebrating holidays, this year falls flat in terms of spirit and enthusiasm. I have however been in the mood to bake. See my little trials below 🙂


Owl cupcakes ( ‘m obsessed with owls)

Yesterday’s Photo 

 Smiling hurts, you know that right? 
As I approach the ripe old age of 26, I’ve become “obsessed” with looking more “grown up” and “stylish”…..Please, humor me.


Surround yourself with happiness. Success is on the Horizon.

Why I Write

It is not the need to impress that drives me,

My desire to go beyond the limit of my potential does.


Thankful for peace, prosperity and grace. Whatever form each has touched my life in, I will always remain thankful.

On My Way To Heaven

Don’t Watch The Look On My Face


Change may not always be negative. We learn from each experience–the good, the bad and the in between. Ultimately, we are defined by our ability to champion life’s challenges.

Well Halloween is over folks.

The Human Connection


How does one define, obtain and maintain the human connection? is it as innate as one’s ability to breathe?

I’m Back



I suppose we can say i’m “back”.  A few months ago I noticed that my creativity plummeted to an all time low. I took that as my cue to distance myself from writing.  I believe my time away helped , I haven’t quite figured out how…..  but I think I am ready to share with you again.

I am certainly out of practice and it definitely will take time for me to get back into the swing of things. For now, i’m content with being  just “back”.


I’m Still Around 

Not much of a writer anymore.

Final Post — Thank You

download (2)


It is with deep regret that I share this post. My final blog post. I have decided that I no longer want to write. I do not want to share. I don’t want to have an online writing presence.

I am forever grateful for all the kind people who have given me their support through this journey. Your kind words of encouragement have kept me grounded.

I am thankful to and for all of you who have contributed to the success of this blog. Maybe at some point in the future I will revisit this venture. But for now this is it. There are a few things I have to figure out, and do so with a clear mind. Other writers and creatives will understand how difficult this is.

Thank you all.
