song in my head — “no tears left to cry” by Ariana Grande
Sometimes doing the responsible thing feels somewhat irresponsible.
Maybe this is because what is "responsible" is often determined by the culture or society around us, and any step outside of that lane is viewed as a break from tradi...Read more of this blog post »

I’m going to expose more than just her film.
As a single father, I spend a lot of time at home — but it’s a new year, and I’ve made a resolution: Get out more.
So I sign up for an evening photography class, ready to learn how to take better photos of my little girl.
For some insane reason, I gave myself 9 books to read in January. >.<
In my defense, most of the books are shorter or easier to read. And also in my defense, I actually originally wrote down 8 books, and that’s the goal I have posted by my desk, so really, I don’t have to read 9 books to mee...Read more of this blog post »

Hi y’all! Today I’m going to tell you about 5 romance tropes I can’t get enough of. Why? Because they are perfect. Because we all need a little awesome cliche in our lives.

Is compatibility a matter of chance in any relationship? Especially life partners? I don’t think so. In fact, I used to be a big fan of Linda Goodman’s Sun Signs during my college days.

But it finally moved
