Atypical as They Come...

... because being normal is boring.

Hey friend,

I know… I know! The recent news and update is pretty cray-cray; totally get why most folks won’t entirely understand and that’s okay.

But, I am glad that you do… I think. L(° O °L)

I mean, let’s get real: You and I are both excited by the fact that I’m headed back into the city… with my teenager…

… while my best-friend will moving to the island of Oahu with the younger two.

… what?!?

Yes, that. I mean. Everything. And, nothing. … honestly, it’s not hard to explain but it kind of is, if you know what I mean? We’re doing this for our kids. We’re doing this for us. We’re doing it for our family, because, our family is everything.

That single-parent lifestyle though.

You see, here’s the thing: Our family needs very different things than most other families. This one has been through the fucking shit; not the good kind either. It’s seen things that can’t be unseen. Fucking trauma; and I know that some of you know what I’m talking about. It’s been… … hard.

This is going to be an atypical year…

… just like last year.

But, you know that we’ll make it… you know that we’ll survive… as long as we have one another, we’ll be okay, I promise. I’m excited, nervous, but very, very hopeful.

To infinity & community,
