Brow Bar, yes, I did sell! The story behind it.

Brow Bar but better!

The story of selling my dream to keep it alive & help it become even better…Brow Bar but Better, BBB in more ways than one…that’s what I’m calling it now, at least in my own head. I was riding along, literally, I felt like I was slowly dying, stress killing me, feeling hopeless & completely…

The day my heart was removed from my chest & smashed into bits.

The day my heart was removed from my chest & smashed into bits.

I get asked daily how Ethan is doing.  I’m honest, for the most part, but some stories would & do make whomever I’m talking with cry along with myself…..so I try to save those stories or tell them once the worst is past.  This is the story of the day I thought my heart would…

Umpteenth breakdown & punching in the face? Writing, just write mom.

Umpteenth breakdown & punching in the face? Writing, just write mom.

I have a journey I need to take, have to take because I’ve been running on empty for a while now.  Happy Hour facials, Brow Bar’s ultimate luxury facial & my personal favorite thing in life to do has been the thing that has centered & saved me from running my well completely dry.  So I’ve…

Half baked passengers, Man v Nature v Nurture Yes, we missed our flight home from Vegas Sunday, Father’s Day, after being at the airport for 7 hours, at least 5 hours in the terminal.  Hard to believe right????  Yeah, it was shocking for us as well as heartbreaking at the time…..  So we went back…

  I mentioned I had been wanting, needing to share Ethan’s story in a way that would help him, our family & others with similar struggles. BARE WITH ME & please keep reading, I’ll try to be concise getting to the point of this story. Most who know me, know I went through a life…

I remember the moment Jamie & I looked at each other with knowing, our child, Ethan, was going to deal with the cruelty of life more than most, it was his 2nd birthday.  As you read this, know I have talked very openly with Ethan about sharing his story.  He is kind to his core…

Another Anniversary, Brow Bar birthday #4

Another Anniversary, Brow Bar birthday #4

  I woke up contemplating why I hadn’t done a bigger to-do over Brow Bar’s 4th Anniversary.  I know the answers, I’m pacing myself, enjoying life & my health…I’m just being for a while.   I’ve been content lately, a good thing for sure after a trying time in my life.  Brow Bar went through…

I’ve been nostalgic, thinking of the 4 year anniversary of Brow Bar.  I truly get that sense when I’m working, telling bits & pieces of how Brow Bar came about, the history involved.  It’s my life story really.  I feel so blessed & so at peace for the first time in a few years.  I’m…

Change, the good, bad & beautiful!!!! I’m BACK…no, I was never gone.

Change, the good, bad & beautiful!!!!  I’m BACK…no, I was never gone.

When I was young it seemed change didn’t happen very often but when I hit 18 it was nothing but change…..still is.

Much love, my Christmas Wish
