My husband and I have been married for 10 years now. This summer will be 11 years. We’ve been through a lot together as a family. The uncertainty of multiple surgical procedures, pure bliss from the births of our two girls, the busyness of two moves, the fear and devastation of a house fire, pride […]

I’ve never shared this story with anyone but my husband. To be honest, it’s embarrassing, and left me feeling like a complete failure. I was so confused, too. I never understood what the reason was behind their decision to fire me. And I still don’t, even 8 years later. But that doesn’t take the sting away.

Eleanor’s due date came and went well before we were able to do anything in terms of getting a nursery ready for her. Our initial plan was that we were going to have both of our girls share a bedroom. Then the week she was born our family situation took a little bit of an […]

Eleanor’s Nursery!

I yelled for my husband and I cried and cried while I told him that we finally had our chance at having our last baby. I couldn’t even wait to plan something super fun for him – I just blurted it out while we stood in the kitchen holding each other.

Our first two weeks of homeschooling has been a learning experience for all of us. Especially for my husband and I. I honestly think we’ve learned more from homeschooling than our daughter has! But one major lesson I’ve learned is that I am the one in control of our schedules, and if we need to take a day off from school to go to the beach or to run errands, I can do that – guilt free!

The Beginning of Our Homeschooling Journey

Last month I joined a group of women online who wanted to make a change to their eating habits. There were some pros and cons for me with this new way of eating and I’ll admit, I fell off the wagon pretty quickly after my wallet started screaming for mercy.

Wedding season has finally started for me. I feel like I’ve been in hiding since November of last year only to come out of my hibernation for weddings. (It’s a MUCH welcomed change!)
