{a new year}

There is something so magical about the start of the New Year. It feels like a fresh beginning, a time of reflecting on the past year, deciding what worked and didn’t work, and making plans for the year to come.  I look back on 2018 and I have a strong sense of accomplishment. I set... Continue Reading →

{beach day}

I am wordy. I know. I write a lot of what's on my heart. Which for me means using a lot of words. The things I feel burning a hole inside of me that just have to get out before I self combust. This post will be short and sweet, with a few motherhood through... Continue Reading →

{one of the girls}

A sweet woman who spends time with us called me out this morning. I thought I was going to crawl into a hole and stay there forever. What she was saying was absolutely correct and she delivered her words with so much grace and kindness. I was a little (ok, a lot) embarrassed as my... Continue Reading →

{she speaks 2018}

For the first time in my adult life, I boarded a plane by myself, without my husband, my girls or anyone I knew, and I set out for my first solo adventure.

Their wings a beautiful bold yellow in color, mimicking the bright sun as it warmed the earth.  I don’t chase butterflies. I wonder if I ever... Continue Reading →

{my motherhood}

I'll be honest. Motherhood looks completely different than I ever imagined it. This coming from the mom who just laid her 19 month old daughter down for the night with a CPAP mask on. I would have never guessed all those years ago this is what my motherhood journey would entail. My oldest came into... Continue Reading →

{tiny dancer}

Friday's are for ballet, for my middle that is. She's only been in ballet for a couple of weeks now, but I am already seeing that it is proving to be an excellent fit for her at the moment. She tried gymnastics because she wanted to be in class with her big sister, but we... Continue Reading →

{mom life}

It's been one of those days. I woke up late so I barely had time for any sort of run. I left the house feeling like I had already been defeated before my running shoes had a chance to prove me wrong. I still went anyway, even though I only had time to run for... Continue Reading →
