This is 40…actually.

For the past forty days, I’ve been on a quest for self reflection and discovery. Although I’ve had 479 months, 2 weeks, and 5 days to learn who I am and whose I am, I was more intrigued with the WHY. Why do I do what I do, the way that I do? Why can’t

Tara vs. Tara

Earlier today, I watched a television show, where a lady talked about how she had been married for twenty years, was a mother of three–the youngest now in high school, and she was unhappy with her life because she felt she was no longer important or needed and she no longer knew who she was.

Golden Girls

When I was younger, I spent a lot of time with my grandparents, MaGen and Big Daddy. I enjoyed sleeping over and hanging with them, and I did it often because we lived around the corner from each other. On Friday nights, Gen and I watched all of our favorite shows: Maude, The Equalizer, Archie

Just the Way You Are

I look forward to date nights with Keith. They don’t come often, so when we have the opportunity to enjoy each others company without the company of the kids, it’s something we look forward to. The date nights I enjoy the most are the “fancy” events, where we have to “dress up” (I’m a kid

Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy going places, especially when the weather is beautiful like it has been this weekend, but there’s something about having nothing to do.

Channeling Aunt Viv

I’m an 80’s kid, so television shows that brought the greatest joy to my young life were The Cosby Show, A Different World and The Fresh Prince of Bel-air. We all have that one show that leaves a lasting impression on us. Maybe it was gut-busting funny or snot-nosed, ugly cry sentimental, or maybe the
