  • LET’S TALK TURKEY

    LET’S TALK TURKEY

    LET’S TALK TURKEY By: Lauren Anderson   Look, let’s be honest here. We all know that Thanksgiving is problematic. We don’t fully know the story of what went down that “meal” between the settlers and the indigenous people, but I think we all can agree it’s not the story they told us in school. It’s […]

  • THE PINK BOTTLE PHASE

    THE PINK BOTTLE PHASE

    THE PINK BOTTLE PHASE By: Lauren Anderson In a quest to bring more nutritionally dense foods into my life, I did some digging online about those superfood adds that you see on Instagram and Facebook and what not. Is anyone else intrigued by these things? Does anyone else even get them? Well, they must have […]

  • BREATHE IN THE PAIN

    BREATHE IN THE PAIN

    BREATHE IN THE PAIN By: Lauren Anderson   There was a significant period in my life when I couldn’t love or be loved by anyone. It wasn’t a particularly sad or lonely time, because I didn’t even know I was in it. I couldn’t feel anything. Not like that anyway. I had shut it down […]

    FINISHING STRONG

    FINISHING STRONG By: Lauren Anderson So… I’m scrolling through Instagram the other day, and I stumble across a post from my friend Brittany. She is talking about the idea of “Finishing Strong”.

    WHY AM I SORE? A HALLOWEEN MYSTERY

    WHY AM I SORE? A HALLOWEEN MYSTERY By: Lauren Anderson I use my body for a living. Which of course, is a ridiculous thing to say. For many reasons, but the first is that DUH– we all use our bodies for a living. We need our bodies to live… for now. MWAH AH AH AH […]

  • THE MOTH AND THE FLAME

    THE MOTH AND THE FLAME

    THE MOTH AND THE FLAME By: Lauren Anderson I love going grocery shopping at night. Wait, let me clarify that statement. I hate to grocery shop. But when the task is inevitable, I prefer to do it at night. I like to tack it onto the end of an evening when I’m already out and […]

  • STAY IN THE FOAM

    STAY IN THE FOAM

    STAY IN THE FOAM By: Lauren Anderson So… I don’t know about all of you, but I have a tendency to “pile” on. I don’t know if that’s the right word for it exactly, but I can’t think of another phrase that fits. You know, it’s like, if I like something then I REALLY LIKE […]

  • CLEAR EYES, FULL HEARTS…

    CLEAR EYES, FULL HEARTS…

    CLEAR EYES, FULL HEARTS… By: Lauren Anderson So… in a couple of hours, I will be in eye surgery. I might even be done with it by the time you read this. Wait, “eye surgery” makes it sound more intense than it is. I’m getting Lasik. You know, like the eye thing that a jillion […]

    IT’S PART OF THE JOURNEY, I GUESS

    IT’S PART OF THE JOURNEY, I GUESS By: Lauren Anderson So, yesterday was a bust. Like an epic, awful, what-else-could-go-wrong? BUST. Let me walk you through it. I’m about to make a GIANT purchase (aka elective eye surgery) and before I go through it, I wanted to shore up some lose ends to make sure […]

  • I BROKE MY BUTT

    I BROKE MY BUTT

    I BROKE MY BUTT By: Lauren Anderson Okay, so did my title get your attention? I’m not being hyperbolic I swear… Last Wednesday was a rainy day, and it’s also my day to go to therapy. So that morning in the storm, I dashed to my car with my keys, water bottle, book and bumbershoot […]
