a lifestyle blog in honesty & authenticity in daily living
Author: Simply Dee In D.C.
I have tons of education and don't use it! I am non-traditional and traditional rolled into one person. I am a Christian, but need work! I am conservative fiscally, but I could care less who someone marries. My favorite things to do are: hang out with my kid, watch movies, read, write, sing, dance, love, live life to the fullest! I love: my kid, my cat, my best guy D, God, rain, chocolate, Christmas, friends, cats, animals in general, honesty, avocados, love, Hallmark channel, iced coffee, Harry Potter, NYC, England, Italy, D.C., Paris and autumn.
So, as I have mentioned, 2020 and 2021 were insanely hard for me. Many can relate. I have forever changed as a person as a result. Many of us have, no matter what we thought or believed during lockdowns, it affected us all. In ways both good and bad. I miss who I used to […]
So, what I like the most about writers is their support and loyalty. I have quit more times than I can count over the last 10 years of blogging and people are still patient. They still follow and keep in touch and communicate. It means a whole heck of a lot to this single mom […]
So, why do we blog? For self healing? To help others become better versions of themselves through our advice/commentary? Or to assuage our need to be/feel important? Or because we are artists of sorts? For some, wanting to get out thoughts, feelings and releasing stress one may be carrying around could be an impetus for […]
So, if one blogs to share innermost feelings and opinions, does it translate well outside of the blogosphere? Really? Even if the writing style is lighter in nature, does it work out there in the competitive realm that is the modern version of having friends, called social media? I am asking because I notice as […]
So, there is a really thin line between “telling it like it is” and just being an entirely negative person. I am a complainer about some real button pushers, so some may seem me as negative, but I am more outspoken/opinionated because I am affected by it, not just looking for a reason to be […]
SO, I do not know about you all, but I let things hold me back. I do work a lot, I run around somewhere all of the time and am constantly doing stuff for my hs senior, or spending time with her or BG or my cat. So it is easy for me to not […]
So, I took some much needed chill time with my soon to be high school senior, and watched a movie, Whiplash, with Miles Teller and J.K. Simmons. Though she big time denies it, she only wanted watch it for Teller. She is not a movie person, she is totally a play/musical kind of person because […]
So, I took myself to see “Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris”, on Sunday at 9:55 a.m. The 7 dollars I paid for the early bird show was beyond a steal. Several minutes into the plot, I began to feel myself transported into her life, her lack, her dreams. I saw parallels in this character; doing […]
So, I have been gone. Fighting the power to get schools open, trying not not be depressed and lifting up my child all at the same time. I am going to get back with it. In the meantime, I started a podcast! Tonight! Please check me out. Be kind. It was hard for me! Thanks […]
So, where we live, it is close to 365 days since our kids have been to school. It is hard to believe that in our country, kids are being held inside their homes when government agencies and medical professionals have clearly stated that schools are safer places to be. People are actually arguing despite teen […]
