When I was younger imagining what my life would look like, it never included me parenting on my own for seven years—let alone having to share my children with another woman. My two kids were only 1 and 2 ½ when my marriage to their dad was officially over. I was in a marriage that in the […]
I’ve been thrifty with my facebook/internet/news time lately. It’s hard to read and watch and listen sometimes (all the time?) to what is going on. It’s too much. So I turn it off. I tune it out. I unfriend it. I look the other way and that view is usually full of roly-poly humans who […]
I’ve started gathering stuff for Spring Break. I’m a shopper. I don’t necessarily keep everything I order but I like the chase. My “Me Time” is usually spent browsing the internet looking for things to make my life as a mom easier and more enjoyable. In the winter, I’m scouring every website known to man […]

In my mind I was making it work, but in my heart I was completely broken. I needed a solution, and fast. There were sleepless nights and long days of thinking the same thing over and over again. With the passing of my grandmother this past Fall, I started reflecting on my life while celebrating […]
There we were, speaking in hushed but hostile tones to each other through clenched teeth, our heads ducked on either side of the Jeep’s frame as we fumbled with our respective child car seat straps. Our little girls shifted uncomfortably as we buckled them into their chairs, taking their cues from us and remaining–for once–completely […]
Pinterest is blowing up with everything vintage and repurposed. Go ahead, search the word. Just try it. I did. Up popped pictures of exquisite jewelry and a vintage vespa. Old doors are made into headboards, and old headboards are made into benches. Why is it such a trend? I think it’s because of the […]
