Dear Gemini Girl in a Random World (Non) Readers,
It’s been a long time since I’ve posted. Why? Because I’ve been busy with more important things like child rearing, work, and trying to figure out why so many women keep falling off the back of cruise ships.
But I’m now transitioning to another life phase, and with it comes a new blog, new branding, same voice (well, same multiple Geminiesque voices) – all here to expound on life’s intricacies for anyone who’ll take a moment to listen.
I’ve found that as the kids get older and increasingly less interested in what I have to say, I feel a growing need to talk. Due to my blossoming “irrelevant” status in their lives, I’m turning back to a wider, and hopefully more friendly, audience. Even though nothing says “love you mom” quite like being blocked on Insta, Snapchat, and every communication channel supported by Verizon, I’m not deterred. In fact, I’m even more determined to speak my truths, and as much as my offspring would like to think otherwise, I’m still the boss. Of them. I can change our Netflix password any time I want, and that, along with random car searches and putting a lock on the liquor cabinet, is the true definition of power.
Reading Between the Pines is all about laughter, reflection, transitions, and decisions, because sometimes taking life’s shortcut when you hit a fork in the road is the quickest way to get where you want to go. Other times, you encounter a detour, and find that the longer, winding path through foreign territory puts you in a place that you might not want to visit, but that you’ve needed to end up all along.
I’m glad you’re still here and I hope you’ll settle in, fasten your seatbelt, and stick around for the ride. Whether we’re traveling down bucolic country roads or through the Taco Bell drive-thru at 1AM, I promise it’ll be a fun trip.
