Mom Notes

To the mom rushing in late with wet hair, dragging quickly dressed kids and trailing muffin crumbs, you're my kind of girl. To the mom juggling a kid in each arm, an overstuffed backpack, a toy in her mouth and balancing a cup of coffee, I've been there, let's talk.  To the mom yelling across… Continue reading Mom Notes

Today

I'm hard on myself sometimes. I fail to see my worth some days. A few times, I've  found myself standing in the kitchen cooking dinner as negative thoughts spiraled  into a staircase of tears.

Ok, 1...2...3... wait, what were we talking about again? Ah yes, I was about to share some exciting information. There are exactly 8 days… Continue reading Game of Foams

Love Sprinkles

We'll be celebrating 10 years of marriage next year. That concept has yet to actually make sense in my brain. I remember hearing people speak of 10 year anniversaries and it seemed like such a futuristic event in my mind. Like flying cars and robots cleaning the house. I just never pictured myself in that… Continue reading Love Sprinkles
