Exhausted. Totally, Utterly Exhausted.

I am exhausted. Physically, mentally, emotionally exhausted. Last year on May 12, I was 11 days away from getting married. You’d think I would have been more exhausted then. Wrong. I am way more exhausted now. And yet, I actually feel okayContinue reading “Exhausted. Totally, Utterly Exhausted.”

Two years ago, I wrote a post called “Lust: Not Just a Man’s Struggle.” I wrote this before I started dating my now husband. I wrote this before I had many views on my blog. As soon as I “revealed” my identity on my blog and started sharing some of my posts on Facebook, I thought about removing this post all together.
