Author of the blog, That Time You

Sometimes what we need is to stumble on our path, leaving us no choice but to pull ourselves up by our fuzzy socks and try again.

In 2017, I started That Time You, a funny, inspirational blog chronicling every hot mess moment, new resolution, insurmountable tribulation, and personal triumph I experienced in a day's hustle. I never had all the answers. (I still don't.) But I was fluent in Hot Mess and Walking Disaster and knew enough to know that we don’t have to know it all, have it all at once, or win at everything in order to fully realize our purpose.

In 2021, I was diagnosed with Stage Three cancer, I lost my mother unexpectedly, and I faced a most unrecognizable path.  Stumbling was one thing, but this was a cross to bear on a path that I struggled to trust. That Time You changed because I changed. Stripped of all of the plans and the foreseeable future I had been sure of, I was left with the one constant I could always lean on -- my faith.


That Time You is still misadventures with meaning and gaffes with glory, but above all, it is a chronicle of enlightenment in a dark world, an inspiring profession of faith, and hopefully, honest insights into survival and a definitive resolution to make what seemed to be a sure failure, fabulous!

Don't feel reading That Time You? No offense taken! How about listening to my crazy instead? Three blogs equal a 20 minute commute. That's a whole lot of my screw ups to start and end your day with.


Cheers to that!



Each week is a new opportunity to try again, or have a good cry, or maybe just laugh at ourselves. Is it self help? Is it wellness? Maybe it's girl talk or a peek into my personal therapy? Who knows?
