My New Baby Saved My Life

I don't want to go into detail. Probably not something a blogger should say considering the reason most of us have blogs is to go into detail about things the people in our lives are completely over hearing about. Anyhow, long story short, the past 2 weeks have been all kinds of awful. From car trouble to professional drama and mathematical woes it's really just all been bad. Regarding the negative, I don't want to go into detail.

What I will go into detail about is my new baby. Let me preface this by saying that I love Big Red and she will always hold a special place in my heart. She was my first (well...sort of). But it was time to upgrade.

I love you Big Red! Just wait until we start trail riding...

Yesterday, it finally happened. My Trek Lexa S was finally ready! All of the bullsh*t of the past few weeks just melted away when I was on my test ride. I felt like a real athlete triathlete. I only had a slight panic attack when my card was swiped and only considered my future filing of bankruptcy for a few seconds before that part was over and it was just me and my baby. Don't ask me how much I paid for it. Please. I'll burst into tears. Anyway, here she is! So worth it!

  1. Yay! I love your new baby! I may be biased, I also ride a Trek Lexa S. It's an amazing bike. I know you will love it!

Year 30

Is this thing on? I've been struggling with a bit anxiety out of nowhere over the past year and a half so in an attempt to keep my head from spinning I'm going to try my return to writing.

I turned 30 in February and it's seriously been my best year. Suddenly I stopped caring so much about things, and more about *gasp* my family and friends. Weird right? But in caring more about people, I also started to care less about their opinions on my life choices. That said, I am going to provide you with a VERY brief rundown of the 3 major life events happening right now:


We are buying a house! Maybe... Yay right? Back in October I found this really great house under a lease option contract that we ended up snatching up. It's in a nice, established neighborhood where *most* people own and genuinely take care of their houses. Not at the Hank Hill lawn level but I'm talking seasonal outdoor decorations and it just happens to be the neighborhood other parents bring their kids t…

Burn the Past

One of my old pastors used to say "God gave you two ears and one mouth so you could listen twice as much". I've always been a pretty decent listener. I was always in the top 5 during games of Simon Says and with a mother like mine, you needed to do your best to prevent her repeating herself. But one area where I really struggle is listening to what God says to me and what direction to go in my life. I'm a control freak. There, I said it. There have been times in my life where I've had to schedule not only when I would have free time but what I would do during said free time. I've literally put "watch tv" on my calendar. So is it any surprise that when someone says to "let go and let God" I have trouble leaving my entire life and existence to someone other than myself? Not only that, but someone who isn't a someone at all? To someone I can't see, don't understand, don't know how to listen to and just have to have blind faith…

Guess Who's Back

Sometimes my thoughts get really overwhelming and when that happens I usually have to do something active and relatively creative. I've been using coloring books since before they were cool and strangely baking is still a big go-to for me but there's also writing. Today while lamenting to the husband he suggested I write a blog to try to just get shit out. So that's what I'm doing.

We are moving back to Louisville. Yay? I guess that's still TBD. I love Louisville, I really do and I have for years but like a weird, slightly dysfunctional, long term relationship, love just wasn't enough. I felt trapped and suffocated. I had created this identity box for myself and while it worked for a while it eventually turned into my coffin. It was tiny and I didn't feel like it could fit everything I wanted to be a part of my identity. 15 months ago I was exercise and non-profit worker Rennay. That's it. When we moved I realized it was a true clean slate. Absolutely n…
