Once upon a time, I was a kid who was strong-willed and bull-headed, two adjectives that were used to describe me frequently. In my parent/teacher conferences, they were told I was talkative and bossy. What can I say? I knew what I and everyone else around me should have been doing and I wasn’t afraid…

I realize I’m speaking from my privileged place when I say that. For a lot of us, it was the absolute worst year in a very long time.

I am a stressed out momma of two. One teenager with special needs. One pre-teen girl who is completely neurotypical and has such a big heart. My family has been in quarantine since March 13th when the kids came home from school for spring break. We decided to isolate then since we’re moving and we…

Rachel Hollis challenged the world recently to make a Joy List. So I thought I would put into blog format just what my top 10 (and a bonus!) joy list is. It is in no particular order. These are the things that spark TRUE JOY in my life. Catching my husband’s eye across the room…

Joel and I are very different people. He is more relaxed and goes with the flow where as I am more impatient and wanting what I want right now. It’s funny how life works and you get the right people when you need them. When he gets impatient, I find my zen. God must’ve known…

Mental Health is Hardest During the Holidays for Some I have the kind of depression and anxiety that doesn’t allow me to stay in bed and sleep when I feel like the world is caving in around me. My anxiety says that if I do that then my kids suffer and my marriage suffers and…

I recently purchased the Panache Cari Spacer bra for wearing under tee-shirts as its billed. I bought the champagne color and I thought it would be a great bra for this purpose. I anxiously awaited its arrival. Living in Florida, I need a light-weight bra that doesn’t have seams and is perfect to wear under…
