About Claudia

Hi!! My name is Claudia. Blogging is sort of a creative/therapeutic activity for me. I blog about being a wife, mother, student, caseworker, and simply being human through photography, words, music, and blog challenges. Mental illness has also been part of my life, so you'll sometimes find mental health and psychology in my posts. I've dealt with anxiety and depression most of my life. And my husband has bipolar disorder. My hope is that I may show readers that it is possible for people to live positive, productive lives despite mental illness, challenges, or frustrations.

Merry Christmas


Water wall fountain at Texas Medical Center Commons. One of many new buildings regularly popping up at the medical center. You see another under construction next door. Taken December 6, 2016 on my iPhone 6 the first night my mother was at the Neuro-ICU at St.Luke’s Hospital for a stroke.  She is now at home for Christmas and recovering exceptionally well.
