LILY ROSE KING

I don’t think I have ever worn an outfit that has represented my personality so well – or one that I’ve been so…well, happy in. It’s like the bold colours and slogan shout about how I feel inside right now and match up with my inner rainbow. Believe it or not, I wasn’t 100% sure […]

My oldest daughter graduated from college only six months after her best friend and Irish twin’s passing. An Irish twin is a set of children born close together, to the point they look like twins when they are in strollers together. I was blessed enough to have two sets.

I have bipolar disorder. Phew. I said it. It’s out. Not that I usually have a problem admitting it to myself—well, actually that’s a lie. It’s very hard to admit, believe and more crucial—accept. However, it’s even harder for me to write–especially on this platform. But, what the hell, I’m going to be brave, wave […]
