My (amazing) Mother-in-law brought me along a Mother’s Day trip this year along with my Sister-in-law (her oldest daughter), her daughter’s best friend, and our sweet niece who lost her Mother late last year. To say this trip was awesome would be an insult. Flying from our cold and rainy native Ohio to sunny and HOT Delray Beach was a highlight for sure, but the days also came with getting to know my Husband’s family better and that was an absolute treasure. I’m grateful for my time with my wonderful family and super thankful they included me! Continue reading
It’s been a while, I admit. I’ve missed this…writing, the blog life (haha). I don’t really know why I stopped. There’s been many opportunities and a ton of topics I could write about on any given day. But I haven’t. And now it’s kind of gnawing at me. So I’m back.
Life is always busy. It’s the truth for everyone and it’s subjective. “Busy” means different things to different people. We all have our version of “busy” that sucks us down the rabbit hole of feeling like we’re being pulled in a million directions. Continue reading
Last year I was introduced to a very cool idea that I decided to keep up on. What you do is you choose a word to focus on for the year. Last year I chose “Transform“. I wanted to use that word in every aspect of my life. Health, finances, family, you name it. It yielded some interesting results for sure. This year, I’ve chosen the word “Nourish”. Continue reading
It never dawns on me how long it’s been since I have written until people start coming up to me and asking about it. Then I realize how badly I’ve neglected “my precious”. Then I start thinking about alllll the blog posts I have drafts of sitting there ready to be published. Ugh. Procrastination at its finest.
Wowza. That moment when you’re thinking about your life and the amount of blessings in it just bowl you over with gratitude. Continue reading
Well, we are through the second week of schooling at home with my 6th grade Tween and 4th grade Boy. I know a lot of you have been waiting on this blog entry. Especially my naysayers out there (You know who you are….and I love you!). Others I’m sure are just curious as to how we’re all adjusting and that’s welcome and loved as well. The truth is,
Spoiler Alert: This is a mom rant. Pure venting of my frustrations before they come out in words I may mean but don’t want to say out loud. Continue reading
In the past few weeks, I have purposefully surrounded my kids around people I personally look up to. People that share the values Hubby and I try to live by, friends that we trust to back us up in the struggles of parenting, and people who I personally try to take mental notes on of how to live.

It’s been a year since I started writing, and I’m ashamed of myself. I have let the early months of summer roll past me, totally involved in the kiddos and have completely neglected my blog. For two months I have thought very little about writing or (eek!) devotions, or drawing closer to my Lord. And it has affected me. Continue reading
Oh my Momma heart. Things that are going on right now in our world have me up at nights, and I’m ready to scoop up my monkeys and live off the land somewhere in the woods! Every single story that pops up in my news feed, every article I read, every news clip I watch has me extremely nervous for the future. So. Much. Evil. Continue reading
