Are your Christmas decorations begging you to take them down? In the past week I've seen lots of posts by people, mainly women, talking about how it's time to take down their Christmas decorations and reset for 2016. They're posting pictures of their newly decorated living rooms without the holiday decor. Yes, I know Christmas is over and I too am feeling the anxiety… Continue reading Holiday Decor, No More
If you haven't heard this song by Matthew West "Day after Christmas," it's a good summary of how we tend to dread that Christmas and all the warm fuzzies are gone and we need to get back to reality. If you're that person that gets a little melancholic after Christmas and New Year have passed, take… Continue reading Happy Day after Christmas!
I literally just spent 20 minutes changing 37 burnt light bulbs on my Christmas garland only to find out that the one which would light everything back up, was way at the end! Many of you just said "girl, you did one too many. I would've stopped after the first one." True. In past… Continue reading Stick with it!
The holidays has a strange way of changing people...in an absolutely great way. People wish each other holiday greetings, charitable organizations are flooded with visits from people putting in time to help out those in need and I sense that people truly want to spread joy and happiness through random acts of kindness. The sparkle and… Continue reading Will it last?
Hi everyone! Sorry I've stayed away so long. There are many factors that have contributed to my silence, but here I am! So as the year starts winding down, I look back and reflect on many things. This year has been one of many accomplishments but one of losses as well. Permanent loss, loss from friends moving… Continue reading Feeling Like You’ve Been Deserted Lately?
You've had them, right? I know I have. A Mission Fail?.... I prep at night, I tell my kids we're getting up early so they're "mentally aware", the baby's bag is ready to go. And I quietly think to myself "I just might make it on time to the Sunday early morning prayer." And why try to attempt a nearly impossible… Continue reading Mission Fail
The other day my very good friend and I were heading to Chinatown for dinner. It had been awhile since we'd hung out, so we were catching up on all the things going on with each other. As we neared the restaurant, parking was a little difficult to find, but I managed to get into the parking… Continue reading Do I Really Do That?
Can you see it? It's right there. On the side of the steps. That white spot that looks like something spilled and wasn't cleaned immediately. Yeah...that. Okay, not super-obvious, but now that you see it, isn't it annoying? And I'm embarrassed to say that it's been there for months. You might be asking yourself "doesn't… Continue reading I’ll Take Care of That….Someday
Throughout the summer, I get to see this every time I open the back door. You might say "nothing spectacular." But the reason I purchased that sign was to remind me that life is too short and that laughing and loving are things not to be taken lightly. Recently, I lost a family member… Continue reading The Little Things
These little men are the blessings in my life that keep me super busy. After the first two older boys, we thought we were done. They were born 14 months apart and it felt like we had twins. We'd (okay I) always wanted a third with the possibility of having a girl Well, we acted… Continue reading The Madness – Short Post
