All my cats have ever know is love… What about you?

All my cats have ever known is love.  That’s my explanation for every endearing thing they do.  Day in and night out, they are cuddly creatures.  They lazily follow me and any guest in my home from room to room and patiently wait until everyone is settled to plop down right beside the “hoo-mans”. “They wanna be where the people are,” is my quick … Read More All my cats have ever know is love… What about you?

Per My Mission, I Have Permission

Up until the very recent past, I did a good job of living and working without trying.  In the road map of Taylor’s life, I had a lane that went from Point A to Point B.  My lane included reading, learning how to teach, working, and being a steadfast friend.  I knew that lane would lead me to a career that was dependable and … Read More Per My Mission, I Have Permission

I am so happy to see you//see me

I’m who you want to be around when you’re feeling low. Need some chicken soup? I got it. A cup of coffee? It’s already made. Big old hug? Coming your way! Seeing someone’s sadness, confusion, hurt, pain, and then making it better? I’ve landed in two, really three, careers so far that have all had to do with that same concept.  And it lights me the hell … Read More I am so happy to see you//see me

Go, Go, Go… Grace

I’m a lady that knows how to get shit done. I came from two working-class parents who grinded and hustled their way out of poverty and into a comfortable upper-middle-class lifestyle by sheer grit and determination. I learned quickly, “lazy” was the worst four-letter explicative you could hurl at anyone and “half-ass”-ing anything was something we just didn’t do. Period.  Another phrase that didn’t jive … Read More Go, Go, Go… Grace

Waltz de la Anxiety Monster

Friend, I am a highly anxious, introverted lady that has an Anxiety Monster living in her head. Recently, I’ve gotten to know him a bit more and realized that he makes his living by convincing me that I need to feel all the feelings. Overdramatic by nature, these feelings persuade me that my worst-case scenario in any situation is already happening.  This is more … Read More Waltz de la Anxiety Monster
