What It’s Really Like

The Question That Made Me Realize My Stress Was Hurting My Husband. A Lot.

The Question That Made Me Realize My Stress Was Hurting My Husband. A Lot.

Last year I came across a blog post that encouraged me to ask a question, just one question, of my spouse. The couple who wrote the article said it did wonders in their marriage, so I tried it. I asked Kyle, “What do you need from me?” I fully expected him to answer something related to him, to his love languages, something like, “I need more encouragement and support from you regarding my job” or...

What It’s Really Like to Be a Flight Attendant

Confession: What Blogging is REALLY Like

I started blogging a little over a year ago. In this time I’ve learned SO MUCH about the blogging world and I must confess, it’s not really what it appears to be.  I’ve wanted to share what I’m about to say for a long time now, but I was nervous about how others would respond….especially since many of the reasons I started WIRL Project stem from many of these blogging...
