Well, this whole #atozchallenge has been kind of successful in that it’s making me stop and reflect on how I spend my time each day. I know I’m only on the third letter, and I’m not exactly on schedule but…Whatever. When I was in 7th grade I decided to become a cheerleader and I embraced it through out the rest of my high school career. I learned so much about myself and about life. I… Read more »

I’m a day late posting this too, but deal with it! Day two of the A to Zs of a Small Town SAHM expresses one if the many aspects of my job that I am so in love with. Baseball. But not literally playing baseball or even watching baseball. In this case, baseball is symbolic for freedom and flexibility. Because I am not in the 9-to-5 swing, yesterday we were able to load up the… Read more »

So I told you a couple of days ago that I planned to start the #atozchallenge which started….Two days ago. So as you know that means…This post is like two days late.  That’s part of my life, now.  I went from being a journalist where deadlines were everything, to being a full-time mom and there is no such thing.  And while I’m on the topic of things not being prompt, something I used to love… Read more »

How many of you have heard of the #atozchallenge for bloggers? Basically it is a month long challenge to write blog posts that represent each letter of the alphabet throughout the month of April. I have been slacking seriously on blogging lately – I love writing and blogging, but it has taken a backseat to family, friends, self-care….Ya know, life stuff.   Needless to say I have been searching for a way to get back… Read more »

And I found a bunch of pictures that are so darned perfect for what my family is planning right now. Are you ready? We’re going to Disney World…like tomorrow!! Stay tuned for how our trip went. I can’t believe it’s been two years since our last trip!

Multi tasking has never been a strength for me. I can do it. I do do it. But it can be a real struggle sometimes. But I bet if we were sitting together right now you would never guess what I am doing right now. As a momma, I am so busy that even showering gets put on the back burner. But thanks to my newest collaboration with Smile Brilliant I can get Professional teeth… Read more »

At the beginning of the year, like most everyone else in the world. My brain was working overtime trying to decide what my ‘goals’ for the new year would be. Thinking about goals really got my head spinning but there was one clear thing I wanted to do this year. I wanted to actively live my life as a Jesus follower. I wanted to love people the way Jesus did. I don’t want to attend… Read more »

Okay, wow you guys. I have been in a crazy hectic bubble lately and finally found it in me to hop back here and update everyone.  But for real….It’s mid February…Where DOES the time go? Life has been crazy, crazy busy. I originally wanted to take a couple of weeks off from blogging around and after the holidays so I could enjoy some time with my family – unplugged.  But unfortunately, as it often happens… Read more »

My first year of motherhood is coming to a close and I hate to see it go…or do I? I’m not sure yet, but one thing i am sure of is that being a mom is what I was made for. Even though as I write this my little guy is fussing for a playmate and I will have to stop and restart this passage several more times; I  am okay with that. Because right… Read more »
