My husband, Philip Morrow, proposed to me during a picnic he arranged at a park in Metairie, Louisiana, which we frequented as a young couple. He wrapped his arms around me and kissed me, and in a really smooth move, he arranged the open ring box in front of my face, as he said, “Marry me?” I forgot to use words in my response. Instead, I tackled him with kisses, but we like to joke with each other about the entire experience. He says I didn’t answer him. I say he didn’t ask a question. He did. There was definitely a questioning lilt at the end of the sentence, but I enjoy the playful banter as we recount the memory together.
In the spirit of that memory, I would like to make a proposal of my own to you today.

Dumb Shit Stops Here.
By dumb shit, I mean trauma–specifically the generational variety. My ambition is to share anecdotes from my own life experience as a vehicle to offer validation for the experiences of others and to reflect on the lessons I’ve learned from my experience to raise awareness regarding the relationship between parentage and identity formation, as well as the perpetuation of abusive cycles.
I will accomplish these goals by continuing to produce short form videos for TikTok, as well as longer video content for YouTube, and by continuing to release regular blog content here, on this website. I aim to use Patreon to raise funds to enrich the quality of the content I already produce.
