An unsung hero: the teenage dad

My husband and I met in high school. We had psychology class together when he was just a sophomore in high school. A little over a year after dating, when he was the ripe ol’ age of 17 years old, and a few weeks before his junior prom, we found out we were expecting. These […]

No, I’m Not Their Grandmother!

It happened again. I was watching my 12 year old twins ride motorized animal scooters at Artegon Marketplace when two ladies sitting on a bench struck up a conversation with me. “Are those your granddaughters?” one asked. “No,” I said with a heavy sigh, “they are my daughters.” Apparently hard of hearing, she repeated the question. […]

Get Paddling this Summer

Two years ago,  I was in search of an activity my teenage daughter and I could experience together.  We rented paddle boards in New Symrna Beach on a perfect Florida Spring day. As we paddled through the mangrove canals we encountered incredible sea life, splashing dolphins, and leaping fish that made us laugh. We were […]

Get the Most Out of Your Family Photos

We have partnered with JCPenney Portraits to highlight their indoor photography studio. However, all opinions are my own. I am a sucker for family photos, and I love how they have changed from when I was a kid. No more awkward, overly-staged positions with white foam pillars in front of a backdrop covered in lasers.

The woman that I want to be

Not too long ago I found myself scrolling through Instagram and wishing for the life that I see on my feed all the time. One filled with laughter everyday, great food, vacations, little fashionistas, name brand clothing, college diplomas, etc. I kept scrolling, kept clicking on people’s pages, kept wishing for everything I didn’t have.

Can We Talk Laundry?

Benjamin Franklin once said, “In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” Apparently Mrs. Franklin did all their laundry, otherwise he surely would have said, “death, taxes, and dirty clothes.” I did ten loads of laundry this weekend and I’m exhausted. Here’s the thing about laundry – it is […]

Stumbling Toward the Last Day of School

Today I was taunted by a box of tissues. Not even Kleenex, mind you,  but generic Target up & up™ brand tissues. The tissues sit in a bin in our utility room next to a disgustingly dirty backpack and mock me by representing the memory of “enthusiastic August mom” while laughing at “stumbling toward the last day of school May mom.” […]
