Free Time: Breaking The “Mom Rules”

Recently, my mind has been ON. And I don’t mean in the totally awesome way that means I’ve gotten 95% of my to do list accomplished by sheer will power. I mean, I have really bad pregnancy brain. I can’t stop thinking about things that I should be doing, halfway through the day I don’t remember any of them, even though I have written a physical list a million miles long. Like, I’ve “forgotten” to order contacts for the last four months straight.

The end result? Me. Napping.  Continue reading “Free Time: Breaking The “Mom Rules””

My husband travels for work more often than I’d like. And even though he calls and texts me as often as he can when he isn’t here, it often still feels like I’m alienated on an entire other planet. Continue reading “I’m A Better Mom When… “

Winter, Wine, & Wisdom

Dear, oh, dear! It has been exactly a month since I last posted here and (dare I say?) it actually feels longer.

Life & Family Update

If my daughter currently drawing all over her freshly bathed body isn’t a sign of the kind of week I’ve had, then I don’t know what is. (But, independent playtime is good, right?) Truly, I was ready to sleep through the rest of the week by Tuesday afternoon. Continue reading “Life & Family Update”

Fall Frolic | Skytop Apple Orchard

This is my first crack at blogging in a bit, so I may be a little rusty. But, when I thought about what my initial post should be, I had no hesitations. The little bit of heaven that my family and I explored last weekend is something screaming to be shared.
