  • Just Between Friends

    Four years ago, as I was awaiting the birth of my first grandchild, my daughter told me about the JUST BETWEEN FRIENDS sales (or JBF as I now call them).  She had heard about them from a friend.  I admit that my expectations weren’t very high when I first went. Boy was I wrong! Read More

  • The Balance of Social Media & Motherhood

    Last summer, I unplugged from all social media for a couple of weeks.  I want to tell you that it was blissfully freeing.  I want to admit that I truly engaged my kiddos, right where they were at, and I was present in mind, body and spirit, like...the whole time.  I want to confess that I could give up social media in all it's many forms and never look back and that living my life in private isolation and in contact with only my immediate friends, family and neighbors is enough for me.  Read More
  • Talking to Our Children about Good Friday

    I will be the first to admit that I struggle with how to talk about this beautiful faith with my son. I’m afraid to say too much, not wanting to scare or confuse him. I’m afraid to say too little, fearing that oversimplifying these beautifully complex, painful, and miraculous stories will turn them into trite and meaningless fairytales in his mind. But I try anyway, fearing every time that I’m doing it wrong, but knowing that it is far too important to just stay silent. Read More
  • What does Easter look like for you?

    What do your holidays look like? Have you mastered the happy medium between driving-yourself-crazy and doing-absolutely-nothing? Do you have more ideas pinned on Pinterest than you could ever hope to accomplish? Or, do you make reservations at a local restaurant and call it good? Read More
  • Just in Time for Easter – DIY Girl’s Tutu!

    My daughter is approaching 16 months and has never owned a tutu.  With the arrival of spring, the reappearance of the sun, and the upcoming Easter holiday I decided it was the perfect time to fix that.  After all, every little girl needs to be introduced to the world of fashion without function.

  • Quick decorating tricks & clutter busters

    As a mom on a budget, I'm all about finding a thrifty way to turn my house into a comfortable, welcoming environment.  I love browsing decor magazines and gleaning good ideas so I've gathered my top ten list (plus a bonus idea) of fun tweaks you can accomplish with a few simple supplies that won't cost an arm and a leg, and less than an hour.  (Most of my ideas literally take minutes.) Plus you don't have to be the superwoman of crafts (I'm sure not!) to make these happen.  In no particular order, here are my favorites! Read More

  • I Don't Get To Control Everything

    I knew I had a long night ahead of me. You see, my beautiful baby boy, the one that melts my heart with his sweet, twinkling smile, is teething and is a rosy cheek crying mess in the middle of the night. Every part of my body wanted to climb back into my soft bed and drift off to sleep…but I knew my job as a mama was just beginning. Read More
  • My 4 Minute Exercise

    Today, the 45 minute window I had planned for my exercise time after work got bumped out because I ended up getting stuck in a meeting longer than anticipated. Instead, I went straight to take my daughter to her 9 month check up, then home to play with the kids for a bit before running back out to a dinner commitment I had made weeks ago. I made it home to put my son to bed, kissed my daughter good night as she was already sleeping in her crib and then made my way downstairs. I sat on the couch and then thought, some exercise is better than none, right? So, here is what I took 4 minutes to do: Read More
