Teaching Kindness???

Earlier this month my friend and fellow blogger, Kate, wrote about kindness in her family. Really, how they struggle with kindness on a daily basis. You can read her full blog post here. She's much more eloquent with words than I am and has a real gift for articulating her thoughts in writing. Funny.... the… Continue reading Teaching Kindness???

It all comes together at Home

I think I figured it out! What this is, what I'm doing, or want to be doing. It kinda started with the show Fixer Upper. If you haven't seen the show, well... it's definitely something special.

I recently wrote about seasons of life. With kids around, quiet time is precious and hard to find. I'm still waking up throughout the night to nurse a baby or sooth a toddler.

Spring Forward

I live in a bubble, surrounded by only what I choose to let in. I'm not sure how, or why I get to have this life. I know that it can all disappear in an instant.

I’m Not Cut Out For This!

If you're a parent, chances are you've felt like this. Felt like the world's biggest failure, that you have no idea what you're doing, that you're just not cut out for this. Those moments when your toddler just won't calm down, he's totally amped and there's absolutely nothing you can do about it. You leave… Continue reading I’m Not Cut Out For This!
