I don't care how much time or energy you've invested in someone, choose you if it doesn't feel right. So many women have asked, "How did you know? How did you know your marriage was over?" And I always say the same thing, "If you are moving toward ending your relationship and dreaming of a different life and it feels right (and scary), that is what you want." You deserve to be your best self. You can be with a great person and not be your best self. They can be a shitty version of themselves when they are with you. It's okay to free yourself.
We love our daughters. Friday night with my girl @fromthebottomofmypurse

This outfit has been brought to you by freezing, temperstutes, more snow and my kids making fun of me. I love the furry hood on this @columbia1938 jacket. Boots @llbeanpr

I've reached the point where I need these computer readers. Have you tried them? Will they save my eyes? I'm constantly squinting, getting headaches, and trying to avoid a trip to the eye doctor. Please give me hope...
We can figure out the specifics later...
The story of my life... Via @momtruthbomb
I wrote this meme a year and a half ago as I was standing in the middle of my high school soccer field. I was watching my kids with their friends and had just sent my (then) husband a text. We had agreed to separate that morning, and I told him how sorry I was and how much I was hurting. He didn't respond. Not because he didn't care but because he was too "in it" to talk about it that day. This quote has been stolen so many times by so many people. It used to bother me and I'd think, This isn't fair, I wrote that! Fuck, P. Diddy tweeted it and didn't give me credit. But I don't care anymore. Because once somebody reads something, it becomes theirs. It touches their soul in a way I know nothing about. So I've stopped chasing this; it's not mine. I'm just going to let it do its thing.

40 degrees, leggings as pants, and a busted hip because I attempted this move.
Shit's about to get serious.
Also at the beginning the week. And the middle... Follow the hilarious @alyceoneword
It's going to hit 30 today which is about 40 degrees warmer than it's been in weeks. I did my hair and decided to wear sneakers today because heat waves make me feel like a dangerous woman.
It's an open relationship so you can totally hit on Amazon Prime, too. Follow the hilarious @wheretheeffismyhandbook
