As I lay myself to sleep
The silence of the dark wraps tightly around my skin
Alone in my bed
Swimming in my own imagination
A fairytale of memories
Written with the deepest of regret
All feels lost, but perhaps it is not
For all that could have been and all that has yet to come
Can always be
If I only close my eyes
I have never been with anyone I could not forget.
It’s not butterflies, but it’s honest.
So you can imagine my surprise when one certain person refused to leave my mind.
Outside of expectation, without explanation… I just love you…just for being you.
So raw so beautiful, completely purely you.
I didn’t know what hit me
All of the sudden there was you
Holding all of my heart
Seeing me for all that I am
And loving me just the same
They said you would come
But I never believed I would find you
Yet here you are
In the most horrific of timing
our lives racing against one another
each grasping for a much different goal.
I wish you could only understand just how much I love you
For all that you are
And loving you just the same
Fate brought us together
Let us not allow fear to hold us back
I know in my heart you are my love
Nothing could be any clearer
Let me love me love you
Let me hold you
Let me in
I stood there starring through the glass as I felt his arms wrap slowly around my waist
Gazing out upon this life we built together
This was the moment I had waited for all my life
This is when I knew I truly had all I’ve ever wanted

Once upon a time there was a girl
A girl who dreamed of grandeur
A world beyond her circumstance
A place of peace and security
Absent of fear and doubt.
Filled with inspiration
Flowing with ideas
And she wrote
And she wrote
Recording each delicious morsel
In anticipation for the next.
Notebook after notebook
Her words filled the pages
Until one day it was no longer enough
She wanted more
The urge to share her experiences with the world
So she started a blog
Hoping one day she may use these words to inspire
That day has finally come.
This once young and struggling writer, as of today, is now a published author.
Announcing the official release of….
Insane Roots – A Memoir: The Adventures of a Con-Artist and Her Daughter
In Stores Now!!!
I am so excited, I had to share! I just submitted the final approval of the cover wrap for Insane Roots! The book will hit shelves February 2, 2016 🙂
We are still working on raising money for the purchase of copies to be sold during the book tour (25% of which will be donated to charity). If you are able to donate even a $1.00, it would be such a huge help in reaching our goal!

Thanks so much for your support! This is a dream come true and would not be possible without all of you 🙂
Sitting alone in my corner, I watch as the hustle and bustle of city life marches on around me.
The purposeful actions of others make me nervous as I journey within myself to find my true calling.
I am not one of them. I am not satisfied with the ordinary.
I do not fault their contentment, if anything I envy it.
If only I were to be so easily fulfilled. I am not.
Instead, I strive for the spectacular, the uplifting.
I wish to be inspired!
Each day is bitter-sweet with potential and the lingering reality that the sand is slowly filling the bottom of the hour-glass.
I am running out of time for greatness.
The promise of tomorrow lies in uncertainty, as I try to make the most of every moment.
