Saying everything and nothing

I am not a blogger who believes that just because I share some of my life with you who may be reading, that I am in fact required or at all obligated to share all of my life with you who may be reading. If anything, you should know if you don’t already that I am quite guarded and protective with myself and my life, and I keep a lot held in because there are limits to what I share.

I make no apologies for it, either.

I’ve made no secret of my stress and struggle over the past few months.

There was a time I spoke of my husband and my marriage here.

It’s been awhile.

We’ve separated. Papers have been filed.


Initially, I started writing a eulogy to the marriage thinking I’d post it here. Even in those early days, I knew that there would be no public post-mortem.

But there will be no eulogy.

Just this acknowledgement.


Life is different now and I move forward with hope. And while there are some very tough days, I think we will all be okay. My daughters are doing well. I have friends and family who have been amazing and comforting and have kept us busy.

Life is different.

But it goes on.

  1. (((hugs))) Wish I could hug you in person and commiserate over wine or cocktails. You are an amazing woman and a good mom. You will be more than OK, I know it. And you will be a wonderful example to your girls of how a woman handles herself during the toughest of times.

    Love you, friend.

    • Love you too, Malia.

      I wish you were here as well! We could have juice boxes and cookies. 🙂 Thank you for listening and for your love.

      Hugs back atcha.

  2. You know I got your back, FGS. xo

  3. Like Malia – I wish we were closer. Sorry you have to go through this. I can’t imagine how hard it has been. But I do know that a Mommy juice box can make the evening a bit more tolerable. Especially when paired with one of you killer cookies or Malia’s PMS crunch!!!

    Miss you like crazy beautiful friend – xoxoxo

    • Oh the PMS crunch. Man, that sounds good!! 🙂

      I miss you lots too – NEED to get together soon.

      <3 lotsa love for you, girly. xo

  4. I loves you.

    #GUACTRIBE forever.

    MMMM PMS crunch! I so need to make that again and reblog it with good pics 😉

    love you

  5. It is hard sharing your life online, but even harder not sharing it. Sometimes there is a therapy about writing it down and putting it out there. We are here for you, written or not. 🙂

    • Thank you, Kim <3 I appreciate it. Seemed weird to not post about it, but didn't really know what to say. Thank you for being there.

  6. You are an amazing woman and an amazing mother, you and your daughters will come through this and be strong. So much love to you.

    I can totally relate. We separated awhile ago and their are still a lot of people who don’t know, mainly because I don’t post about my personal life on any of my social media pages. I will tell you that it’s hard but life is good on the other side. I’m nowhere near where I thought I would be at this point in my life but plans change and life makes room for something great to happen. Just hold on to what you’ve got and thank God for it everyday.

    A mommy juice box toast to you and your new happily ever after.

  8. Big hugs Sarah. I am currently going through the same thing. We haven’t told hardly anyone yet and I think it’s because it is still sinking in. I truly hope it’s as painless as possible for you.
