My family is mourning. This week, we lost a beloved member of our circle. He was a son, a brother, a grandson, a friend, a nephew. And to me, a cousin. He was young (proof that life isn’t fair). Not even 18. While I’ll never understand why it was his turn, I can say with […]
It’s been quite a ride, Russ. As I reflect on the last 11 years, I have a few things to say. Thank you for teaching us. It wasn’t your choice to land in a state that wasn’t exactly into professional basketball. By and large, we were a football state. A tailgatin’, college-football-lovin’ state. But when […]
Disclaimer: This is a sponsored post, but all opinions are my own. Have you heard of thermography? You can probably guess it has something to do with temperature, but did you know the study of heat can actually play a role in evaluating and tracking your overall health?

Ever since we took them to Medieval Times, knights have been the focal point of my sons’ imaginations. My oldest even puts on “knight shows,” complete with imaginary fire and jousting.

Are you a podcast junkie? I am. I’m not afraid to admit it. And, for a while now, I’ve had the idea of creating a podcast centered around motherhood. I know, I know… there are motherhood podcasts out there right now. But, this one’s different. This one isn’t about how to be a good mother, […]
This Foster Care Awareness Month, I’m reminded how easy it was for my sons to accept each other as brothers. Effortless. Obvious. They just went with it. It doesn’t matter that they look nothing alike.
Do you have an air fryer? I recently purchased one on a whim, hoping to use it for foods we wouldn’t otherwise try. And if I’m being honest, also as an easy way to cook chicken without having to look at it (I can’t stand that!). It’s been a while since we’ve posted here, so […]
I’m a food allergy mom. I walk on eggshells (no pun intended…) around food, so you can imagine my horror at the grocery store the other day. Let me paint the picture: It was a Saturday morning. I was already tired, my kids were ready for lunch, and my cart was overflowing with the week’s […]
I had the worst nightmare ever. Because it was based off an actual day in my past, it felt so real. In fact, everything was exactly the same.
