1 bro + 1 sis & me

supported equally

by cuteness and smarts look at those cheeks locks curled so tight comparison too early to deceive what cuties proudly praised bellies full of warm brownies and milk napkins hide impending compost we didn't like green beans sports idol left field bound ear full of transistor chatter crayons paint pink record hiccups on 45

precious and few empty gym trampoline springs fun special days only we share one of a kind dresses patterned to a specific doll colored thread matching mom

third child

escaped twin reference despite painted play despite station wagon shenanigans despite growing pains still bond belongs stongly between 1 bro + 1 sis & me

I hope the holidays brought your family, in whatever form or fashion that consists of, together with joy, happiness and love. I had the good fortune to spend Christmas with both my brother and sister. This doesn't happen every year for my brother and his wife live in my home state of Illinois and they don't always make it down to Texas or myself up there. This year was special. The time was brief but the quality was exceptional. I am so, so blessed to have been given a brother and sister that are unconditional in their love for me. I only hope that I honor that love given by returning it with fervor and grace.

I am excited to announce that my second collection of poetry is NOW AVAILABLE!!

MOMMA IS COMPLICATED encompasses a relationship between a daughter and her momma where a web has been spun and the reciprocal fear bites and leaves scars. However, with this entwining of complications, hopeful desire for forgiveness encroaches to whisk away stings with a hopeful resolve.

At the moment you can purchase this collection along with my first poetry collection, BEAUTIFULLY NAKED. AT LAST., on my  SHOP page. I also have my poetry collections currently available at the following locations:
