WELCOME TO THIRTY AND TRYING

Welcome to my blog. I wanted to create a site that blended humor, insight, truth, and tips for what it means to navigate your thirties. It's a time in your life where you know who you are as an individual, but are still in a place of transition whether it be career-wise, relationship-wise, and family-wise. As a soon-to-be mom working in Hollywood, I hope you'll enjoy my posts about trying to balance it all. Thanks for stopping by.

When it rains it pours, you guys. My son’s first birthday was sandwiched between me getting hit by a truck and then getting pneumonia. So, needless to say it was a hectic couple of weeks. Fortunately, one of the the biggest lessons I’ve learned in the past year is bein...

I was hit by a truck. Literally. While I need to keep most details private for now, my husband and I were on a rare date and walking to our destination. One minute we were on the sidewalk and I was complaining about the rain potentially ruining my newly straight hair,...

From the time we’re a child we’re asked what our dreams are. Often times they are something far-fetched, a true dream or fantasy. To be a princess, a cowboy, an astronaut, and everything in between. At some point you begin to realize that your dreams have changed, or m...

Have you ever stopped to think about your life priorities? This week I accidentally created a list of "life commandments" and it gave me a lot of clarity about the things I desire most in my life. Here's how I came up with the idea and why each of my "commandments" rin...

Happy New Year! Hope your 2019 is off to a great start. I had a wonderful two weeks off with my family and am settling in to a new office and job. Excited to get back in the swing of writing on a somewhat regular basis. So, without further ado...

2018 went by in a flash...

Around two years ago when I was going through the devastating loss of my first pregnancy, I started writing a play. I didn’t mean to write a play, it just sort of happened. It was the day after the procedure, which also happened to be Thanksgiving and my husband and I...

Time has a way of bending and stretching, making some moments seem fleeting, while others can go on forever. Anything can transport you back to a moment of time and the feelings that went along with it. The fear that took up residence in your bones comes hurtling back...

Disappointment is such a complicated emotion. For me, I can feel it everywhere in my body. From the back of my throat— the desperation of tears welling and the choking response that comes as a result — all the way down in my gut, leaving me feeling both off-balance and...

I haven’t had time to post in awhile, and that’s because life has been pretty well… crazy lately. 

It’s amazing to watch my son grow in little ways every day (and in big ways cumulatively), but that growth demands more attention and just… more. Being a parent is a lot l...

I’ve cried more times this week than I have in years. And when I’m not physically crying, I feel like I’m holding back my tears. That uneasy feeling where you can practically feel your emotions caught in your throat, making you think you’re slightly sick and off-balanc...
