A Little Tradition

It’s December and the year has flown by yet again! I’m not complaining as it’s been fairly eventful and full of happiness and love for me and, hopefully, it’s been the same for you. This may be corporate brainwashing a mom thing, but I always look forward to the holidays because I love spending it with my beautiful little family. My husband and I spend … Continue reading A Little Tradition

Our Miscarriage Story

I shared on my YouTube channel the loss of our 13 week pregnancy earlier this summer. You can see the video here if you missed it. As my little family and I worked through our loss, we decided to keep pushing forward and we’re happy to share our family of three is expanding to four. As of writing this post, I am now 20 weeks … Continue reading Our Miscarriage Story

A Bit of Thanks

Manners are important. They define you are as a person. It drives me crazy when someone can’t manage a please or thank you. Too often, it’s people who believed their entitled who don’t say so. Whether that’s simply them or a failure on their upbringing, I don’t know. What I do know is if you need something, you don’t demand. You ask and add a … Continue reading A Bit of Thanks

What’s A Little Mess?

Cleaning and organizing was my thing since I was a kid and well into my early twenties. Every thing was vacuumed, wiped down, and dusted frequently. Then I became a mom and all of it seemed pointless. At first, it was okay. My son couldn’t move far on his own yet and I was able to maintain everything as usual. Then he learned to crawl. … Continue reading What’s A Little Mess?

Always Worth Celebrating

I was stressed this holiday season (as most are). It really snuck up on me once Thanksgiving was over. I kept telling myself there was more time, but the next thing I know, I was scrambling to get last minute gifts. I swear I’m planning better for next year. Overall, our festivities went quite well. We spend the day before Christmas eve with our closest … Continue reading Always Worth Celebrating

A Favorite Of Mine

What an interesting existence we live when we can have a favorite person the way we have a favorite flavor of ice cream or candy. There are so many people I label as my favorite, in my family or not. There’s my sister, my son, each of my best and closest friends. Being biased, I’ll pick my husband (almost) every time. I mean, why not? … Continue reading A Favorite Of Mine

A Long Life Worth Living

We influence one another every day. I want to say from when we wake up to when we go to sleep, but sometimes we even dream about each other. The things we see our friends post on social media impact us more than we know or believe. To pin point who has made my life worth living is would have to depend on what point … Continue reading A Long Life Worth Living

Graciousness in Bloom

People are complimented so often, we become desensitized to what exactly they’re complimenting us on. A stranger could tell me I have lovely hair or a nice smile or that they found a short story I’d written done extremely well. If I hear it enough, I know a part of my brain will turn it off and I’ll forget about how much people enjoy the … Continue reading Graciousness in Bloom

A Little Bit of Balance Goes A Long Way

There are three things that help keep me balanced: having a routine, talking with my husband, and being mindful of the present. Communication is key to any and every relationship. Without it, everything’s bound to crash and burn. If the relationship/friendship falls apart even though there was an open line of communication, then there was a deeper problem going on. But, that’s not where I’m … Continue reading A Little Bit of Balance Goes A Long Way
