The title of this post is neither a question, nor rhetorical. Sometimes, it really feels like it can never be simple. If life is a series of ups and downs, Mr. Miles and I get a lot of…life. We had just enough time to get married…before he deployed overseas. We enjoyed(?) a belated first year […]Read More It Can Never Be Simple, Can It.
So, hi all. It’s been a few…years? Though, not gonna lie, I find it incredibly ironic that my last post, in 2015, about the Dylan Roof massacre, is still relevant.

On New Year’s Eve, my best friend and I got into a big fight over e-mail (which I’m not sure we’ve moved […]Read More Love and Loss
Each Remembrance Day, I think of 3 things (usually in this order): 1. Mr. Miles. It’s easy to take memorial-type holidays for granted when you have no personal stake in it. Several years ago, I had a very personal stake in the welfare of deployed troops. What would have normally been one of the happiest […]Read More I Remember
