The beauty I see…

Sitting in a warm coffee shop, snow flakes descending in white fury outside a nearby window, and I’m thinking it may be time to re-emerge from my brief writing hiatus. The past few weeks have been, in part, about moving on…..but also about returning. The return, in fact, has been both literal and figurative….returning toContinue reading “The beauty I see…”

Not my man…

Dear fellow overthinking, analytical, introverts, So, I don’t move you? Is that my fault? Do you think there’s something wrong with me? Well, let me tell you…..maybe I don’t do it for you because YOU don’t move ME. You don’t bring out anything in me and there’s a side of me you will never seeContinue reading “Not my man…”

What will you do?

Let’s imagine getting a little house plant and giving it water so that it may grow and flourish.  Now, imagine giving it so much water that you end up drowning it.  Likewise, imagine planting flowers in your yard that love the sun.  You read that they love the sun, but you have a spot inContinue reading “What will you do?”

A whole other world…

When my husband passed away from a self-inflicted gunshot wound in 2010, I was not unfamiliar with loss and grief.

In fact, it was almost two years before I was ableContinue reading “A whole other world…”

About Me

Hi, I’m Jeanie. Although a journalist by trade, I have always been enchanted with the idea of writing a book and this is where one may now find me in the latter days of 2020. Working on my first memoir, “From Eggshells to Extraordinary,” I spend my minutes exploring and writing about love, loss, relationships, personal growth, and my own journey and experiences in each of these. In fact, many of the stories, musings, essays, and articles you find in this blog touch on the same topics I also look to share and cover in the new book, so stick around. Subscribe, share, leave a comment (or two,) and even drop me an email if you want to connect and share thoughts and ideas. I’d love to hear from you!
