Thank You All!

Our sweet baby was born 4 weeks ago and I have yet to brag about how loving and generous my family and friends are, and how they’ve taken such amazing care of me and Mark and our girls. I’m so proud and blessed to call them mine! While we were in the hospital my parents…

Be Kind. That Is All

Ever have one of those moments where a life lesson your mom taught you from early on jumps right in your face to remind you of it’s importance? Yep, that’s what happened this morning. I was reminded that you never know what people have going on, and that their “transgression” against you (real or perceived)…

Fabulous 40!

 Forty is FABULOUS! It truly is. A few months back I was feeling a little down about hitting the big 4-0, a natural feeling it seems. It’s not that 40 seemed so old, necessarily, or that I didn’t want to hit 40, because Lord knows that’s much better than the alternative of not making it.…

Relaxing is for Sissies

So our summer got off to a super fun start visiting family in Ormond Beach. We played, we laughed, we visited, and we ate…a lot! The first full week of summer vacation was an easy week that somehow went by super fast. It was just a week of doing what we want when we want.…

Marriage Bootcamp

In the quest to be “different” or have an element that sets them apart from others, blog mom’s are going way out on a limb and getting extreme.…

We Are Worriers!

I was making a special Mom and Daughter Mother’s Day breakfast for my mom and sister and our girls yesterday, so I was up and at ‘em early. Bella seemed slightly disappointed that was up before her because she apparently had a plan to make a 3D pop-up book for me before I awoke. She…

Does a Mom of a Terrorist Go To the Funeral?

Or a dad, for that matter? Listening to the radio in the car this morning, I heard the DJs discussing the brothers who terrorized Boston; and they were playing and discussing an interview with the uncle who had just recently found out his nephews were the bombers, and that one had been killed. The DJs…

You, Bad Guy, Are Way Outnumbered!

I will start by saying, as so many have before me, that my heart and my prayers go out to the victims of the bombings at the Boston Marathon yesterday. This tragedy that has personally struck many, is another that strikes our whole great nation. It was here at home, at an amazing, exciting, perfectly…
