Fear is

This week was a very big week for my not-s0-little girl. She lost her first tooth. She got to spot the tooth fairy scaling our bannister and was able to follow the trail of fairydust that she had left behind in our backyard. (When she woke up and I showed her the "photo that I had captured" she asked, ...

Treasures

My son and daughter are best friends. I thought about trying to link to all of the posts that chronicle their journey together, but there are oh so many. When I found out that I was pregnant with my second child, I was so excited at the notion of a sibling for my girl. At that point I was ...

The other things

Not too long ago I wrote a post about the things that I would, without a doubt, never be able to do. No matter how hard I worked, the "never" things in that piece were unattainable and I could accept some of those things more easily than others. Not being able to marry a Kardashian? Fine. Not being able to Kardashian ...

Wings

She turned and walked out of the room. We had just kissed. Eleven times. I refrained from getting up to watch her walk down the stairs, but I could hear her little footsteps as her red, glittery sandals met the hardwood floors on the staircase. Except, her footsteps aren’t so little anymore. My girl is off ...

Love is Love

I should start off by saying that this post is not what you think it is going to be about. And, that this post is exactly what you think it is going to be about. Since the news of yesterday's horrific shooting in Orlando broke (and I am choosing my words carefully; it was many things, and ...

Newest member.

This week we experienced a momentous day in the world of our tribe: My girl got to meet our newest member. Who is this new, beloved boy, you ask? Well, I will tell you. *** In my Junior year of High School I became best friends with a girl with the biggest smile and an even bigger heart. She has ...

Brighter than the sun

Yesterday, I posted a photo collage on Instagram with pictures of my daughter as she went off to have her Kindergarten school pictures taken. I could not believe that she was doing something so grown up; that she looked so mature; that she is so beautiful. I know that it is a thing that people say, but it ...

Fade Away.

So, guys. Friends. I am obsessed with a few new things, and I would like to share. First, Pinterest style, obviduh (*Note: word credit goes to DG and his sister, AG, who made up that, the most perfect word. WORD.) Next, I am really into Zebras. This isn't such a new new thing, but my realization of just ...

Pinterest me (the before).

I have a confession to make. While I love fashion (and come from a very stylish family and group of friends), I have a hard time dressing myself in a way that makes me feel great. I have talked and talked all about the importance of having confidence, but it is something that I lack when staring ...
