Dark Flowers

Hiya everyone, I hope everyone is having a great Easter weekend. Since we can’t go, physically go to church this year, Micah and I have been virtually tuning in. It isn’t the same. Today I decided to dress up a little more than usual, just to make “going to church,” more special. So I wore […]

Kickin these blues

Spring break vacation is coming to a close, but we aren’t returning to the traditional way of learning. The classroom I once knew isn’t going to exist this spring and that suddenly fills me some anxiety. I trust our school officials and leaders with the fate of student learning in this new way, but I […]

Staying in

Yesterday, the governor of Kansas notified the state that schools would be closed down for the remainder of the school year. It’s a fate we are all very uncertain about, especially educators, who feel heartbroken over the class of 2020. Yes, learning will still be going on, but it’s going to look different. How so? […]

In the name of Spring

I’m pretty sure I jinxed several things this week, one includes the possibility that spring was here. Today I woke up on break, but sadden with the fact that most of my time off will be spent in either rain or 40 degree weather. It’s a bummer. I wanted to feel the warmth on my […]

La Almudena

Good evening fine people. Just when I thought I had some consistency on Always Aley, life is here, looming. Well as many of you might know from my first newsletter, I’m no longer in Oklahoma, my new job takes me to Wichita and the excitement of seeing what the year will bring is truly something […]

Faith Full

With the long weekend in full effect it’s easy to want instant gratification because we’ve worked hard and we need a break. With this comes the need to ignore how truly blessed we are, it happened to me in Rome. I was in awe by the trip I was in and the things that I […]

Sighting Paris

To end our time in Paris, Micah and I strolled through the city and saw as much as we could. We took it as a “we came, we saw, we conquered” type of vibe. And it was fun. Obviously there were places we stopped a little bit longer to fully admire, but we enjoyed more […]

Self love; Not giving up

It’s 11 p.m. and I should be asleep, but for the past few weeks I’ve had a sick stomach. It’s an indescribable feeling, yet I’m for certain we’ve all been there. We’ve felt like the weight of the world is on our shoulders. Like we can’t breathe. Like our heads are being pounded on. Like […]

Self hope

Once school begins there’s no downtime. Ironically enough it’s also the season where I seem to find myself the most organized. For me, it’s back to day planning, schedules, and occasional double-bookings. Even though I hate to admit it–I love to stay busy. One thing I absolutely love to do once school starts is get […]
