“She’s Got Heart ” Mixed Medium Collage

Dear readers, In the process of cleaning out the junk in my home, I found this little gem from a few summers ago. Some sort of half interesting/half tacky Pinterest fail I probably did not know what to do with. Under the dresser it went! I was very organized back in the day... working on fixing that these days! Two years pass, and I'm looking for a wall art project to do with Squeak that won't take too long or…

The Single Mom's Guide to Toxic Friendships: Part Two

The Single Mom’s Guide to TOXIC FRIENDSHIPS: Part Two

Dear readers, Last week, I discussed in great detail four major signs that you may be in a toxic friendship. Halfway through typing out The Single Mom's Guide to Toxic Friendships: Part One, I realized that it would be way better as a two part post, considering I was going way past my 300-500 word limit. I ended up at over 1000 words, and I still have a lot more to say on the subject. Many of these experiences are my…

The Single Mom’s Guide to TOXIC FRIENDSHIPS: Part One

Dear readers, I think with the passing of 2016 we are all in the mindset of new beginnings. Not just resolution-related but the actual sense of starting fresh with a new year and a clean slate. New Year's is my favorite holiday because I feel a sense of power with a fresh start, everything becomes very clear, and the problems of the past I felt powerless to change suddenly don't seem so overwhelming. In the new year, we focus a lot…

Happy New Year’s Eve from Ms. Moxie xoxo

Dear readers, Welcome to 2017... I had a wonderful New Year's Eve. From the moment my night started, to the very end when I walked home at 2 am in my sparkly mini-dress. Well, that part wasn't exceptionally wonderful, but I was happy to not drink and drive. I felt like a glowing ball of love all night because I was so happy to be around my friends and co-workers. I felt so blessed. I also threw up the rocker…

9 Quotes to Weather the Storm

Dear readers, Everyone has hard days, weeks, months, or maybe even a hard year. As human beings we doubt our decisions, beat ourselves up for the choices we made, and generally over-think what we may have under-thought before. When you enter into that rut, have your heart ripped to shreds, or have your will tested, sometimes we need some words of wisdom to yank us off our knees and back on to our feet. Here are nine quotes to help…

Camping with my Best Friend

Dear readers, I have the best friend in the whole world. We met when we were seven. We were in the same class together. We walked home from school one day and we realized that her family had moved in to my family's old house. I'd like to think we knew it was meant to be. We did ridiculous things together as kids. I think my child is weird, but when I look back on the things my best friend and I…

The Sturgeon River

  Dear readers, I've formed a deep connection with nature these past few months.  I've always liked to be outside, but I never considered it a place of healing until this summer. Sometime around March, I began to formulate my summer plan. It looked a little bit like this, "Go outside as much as possible." I've really outdone myself. As mentioned before, I live in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. It is small town in the middle of nowhere with nothing…

The Soo Locks With Sam

Dear readers, A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of taking my friend Samantha out on a date. The hospital offered it's employees a free dinner cruise with the Soo Locks Boat Tour, and I knew just who needed a night out. She's crazy, I'm crazy, it just works. If you are ever in Sault Ste. Marie,  I highly suggest you take the Soo Locks Boat Tour. Here are the beautiful photos from our night on the St. Mary's River.…

The Interloper

Dear readers, Today's post will be short, but it is a great epiphany. Up until about a month ago, I felt like I was locked out of my own life. I tried all the knobs and windows to see if I could break in somehow, but I failed. So outside I stayed, grimacing in the wind and rain. I took shelter in a lot of other people lives, we had great times, I grew and changed a lot. But you…

Happy 4th of July!

Dearest readers, I had a wonderful 4th of July. I haven't been too keen on celebrating the holidays since the divorce. I do all the typical fun stuff for Squeak, but without a big family to celebrate with, there is a small amount of emptiness that still lingers. However, I think it's about time to have my own independence, from the past and not the British, so I borrowed some one else's family for the 4th of July.   Squeak…
