About Me

I grew up in a village of 500 people and now live in a beach town of 10 000. Wife to Jeff, Mama to Makenna and Jack. This is my place to share what's up with us, and the place where I sometimes need to pour my heart out about the not so sunshiney moments. This is my happy place.

I see you.

It's your eyes that give you away.

So Sad. Such Pain.

Panic. Fear. Heartbreak. Disappointment.

A lifetime of this I see in your eyes. And your life hasn't been that long.

I see it when you look at her...the longing, the silent begging, the hope that is there for a split second that is so very quickly crushed...with such force.

It hurts me to watch. To bear witness to this time and time again. It brings tears to my eyes.
And my eyes have seen a lot.

To my surpise, and despite my best efforts I think about you long after you're gone. You have found your way deep into my heart.
My heart that is perhaps too big.
Never too big.

I wish I could save you.
I wish I could open the closed doors.
I wish I could prevent what I see coming 2, 5, 10 years down the road.

I see you.
With my eyes I see your eyes, I see your pain. I wish I could take it away.
You are going to stay in my heart for years to come.
Never too big for you.
I wish you were mine.
