Blog 18/50. Top 3 Favorite Movies.

I figured we were due for a light-hearted topic and movies came to mind. Plus I want to hear from you all about your top 3! #3 – Goodwill Hunting Honestly, if this movie was just 2 hours of that scene where he owns the blonde ponytail guy at the bar on repeat, it might still make my top 3. I know a lot of people love Robin Williams but I have never really liked his style of comedy. However, he is just fantastic in this movie. If you haven’t seen this yet, WHO EVEN ARE YOU??

Blog 9/50. Change!

I couldn’t think of anything more appropriate to write about right now than change. We’re going to be parents. Wow. I have never experienced anything close to this level of change in identity and will likely never experience it again. For over 30 years I haven’t been a parent and now, most likely within the next week, I will be a parent. Then I will proceed to NEVER NOT BE A PARENT AGAIN! It’s so difficult to wrap my brain around. It is so paradoxical. How can something t...
