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!
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.

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
My favorite activity in spring is going flower shopping. It wasn't always like this. Prior to owning a house, I wouldn't come within 10 feet of a garden or a home improvement center.
