Hi. I'm Liz, and my life got kind of fucked up in 2017. 

Somewhere around May 15, I was preparing to move out of the house that I had shared with my soon-to-be ex-husband and our children, and I felt like the weight of the impending change was going to stop my heart from beating right there in my therapist's office. "I can't do this," I said.

"You are innately and infinitely resilient, Liz. You are already DOING this," she said to me.

So, here I am, in the middle of a transformation, and I want to capture it. The heartbreak of divorce and the struggle of split custody and single mothering is testing my resilience, and I want to share this part of my story as it's happening.

Over the next 12 months, I am going to bring you into the process of creating a book that documents my journey from here to there. Each month, I will share essays, poems, playlists, and photos that chronicle my challenges and memorialize my metamorphosis as I learn and grow in this new life as a single mom. 

There's a great song by Gregory Alas Isakov called The Universe that goes, "The universe, she's wounded, but she's got infinity ahead of her." This project finds me at that precise moment, looking at my wounds, and staring at the expanse ahead of me. It's overwhelming and invigorating. And I'm grateful that you're here with me. Let's go.
