The Friday Flashback — Hey! Homeless Adventure!

Publication1

Facebook casually reminded me that this week started my homeless adventure back in 2012!

Yay!

I will admit, even though this was the hardest time in my life, I learned so much about myself, what I’m willing to go through and accept as well as showed me how people really are.

And in a complete opposite direction, something beautiful.

My beautiful patio garden at my old apartment last year. Sadly, the only things that lived through the summer were my aloe and my tulips are sprouting after I thought they had died.

I still haven’t figured out the herb garden thing. I have some basil growing because I love flat leaf basil…

The Friday Flashback — The Picture of Brooke and Pawpaw

Publication1

It looks like March, in my life time, has been pretty random.

Facebook likes to gut punch me with pictures of my cousin Brooke. This was a photo set I’d framed. My Pawpaw and Brooke passed in the same year and that’s the only picture of them I could find together. Also, the other picture of her is probably one of my favorite pictures that I have.

Brooke’s passing made me do a great deal of introspection in regards to suicide, mental illness, and physical illness. I’ve spoken about her several times in the past. Her passing had such a huge impact on my life.

In addition, evidently I love posting pictures of Harley. Here’s a gem from 2013.

This year marks 10 years this beautiful cat has been in my life.

Also, there’s a post on there from like 9 years ago where I talk about wanting a trunk monkey. No reason why.

Happy St. Paddy’s!

**This is kind of a thing I wanted to start, because now that I’ve been on FB for 10 years, it’s starting to regurgitate up some old memories — some good, and some bad. And I really wouldn’t mind writing about them.
