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.

The-Years-Are-Short,-Really-Short

The Years Are Short, Really Short!

We celebrated my husband’s birthday last Saturday night. Sitting across from my girls at the restaurant, I was struck with how grown up they are. They are thirteen. In five years, they will graduate from high school. Five years! I have five more years and a summer before they leave for college. Exactly five years ago today […]

Real Talk with New Moms

There is a popular quote that has been floating around the internet.  “To be a mother is to watch your heart walk around outside of your body.” I mean, really?!

  I’m conflicted about the state of my daughters’ bedrooms. They are thirteen and their rooms are a perpetual state of mess. One occasionally gets tired of her own mess and picks up. Her twin does not. I have always been a little OCD. Well, OK, maybe a lot. As a child my bedroom was […]

My Mom Fuel

When I was a little girl my mom always had a STRONG cup of coffee with her. She had a coffee (splash of milk and a little sugar) first thing in the morning. Then there was a cup of coffee next to her as she talked on the phone, smoking a Newport (yeah 80’s!), and doodling […]

Scaling Back Kids’ Activities

Growing up I had a close friend who swam competitively. She and her four brothers all swam on the same team. At the time, I felt sorry for her because she wasn’t allowed to choose her own sport or activity. Now as an adult looking back, I think her mother was brilliant. Five kids and only one activity at […]

1 + 1 = Done?

So you’re done? That’s it right? When we found out we were having a boy, family as well as complete strangers basically put a “Closed” sign on my uterus. “Well there you go, you have one of each…The set is complete.” Hold the phone people! What if we really want to see another dynamic in […]
