I got a little sad

I have had a lot of blog posts formulating in my head. I want to share so much with you. I have wanted to share what I have been up to; some cool updates. I have wanted to share with you some fun or helpful or pretty new finds so that you can enjoy them like I have. I thought that ...

Chicks Who Give A Hoot

Featured image via Michelle Sweeney, Little Nest Portraits Good morning, from the land of mom. I write to you with old-school Adidas massage sandals on my feet, warmth in my heart and tears in my eyes. In all honesty, I had two different blog posts on the schedule for this morning. I have so many exciting things to share, both ...

To persist.

Just when I thought that my daughter could not possibly amaze me more... I write this post while covered in dirt and a light sprinkling of mud; my hands are so tired that it is making the act of typing difficult; I feel achy in my abdominal muscles and back; my nose is red from being a bit cold; ...

Walk the line

I stood at my back door after a stressful morning drop-off with my kids. I had been 1 minute shy of another tardy slip and so I raced to get my daughter to school on time and she made it. But it was tense. Anxiety seeped out from me; it was palpable. My kids felt it. It wasn't ...

Wrong About Me

Today, I took both of my kids to school. They go to different schools. I dropped my daughter off first. During the five minute drive from her school to his, I played this song twice. "Wrong About Me" (I am including a link to a live performance, but I also highly recommend that you check out the studio version). https://youtu.be/dFI-eR-VLHc And you ...

The Holiday Highs and Lows

I feel so blessed to start off this week with a most beautiful and timely Together, Ever After, written by a most beautiful and brave woman. Though we have yet to meet in person, I know that she is a kindred spirit, and I am so glad to have found her. Without further ado, here is Together, Ever ...
