When Words Don’t Come

When Words Don't Come

I'm still here, hanging around, lurking on social media, and doing the work at home, stay at home, homeschool Mom thing. We're busy living life, learning, working and just getting through the day. Not in a bad way- we're just checking days off the calendar, and life is flying by at an alarming rate. I've wanted to stop and share what's going on- … [Read more...]

Finding Our New Normal

Finding Our New Normal

As you may have seen from my many social media posts- I started homeschooling my little Kindergartner this week. First of all, how he is old enough to be in school is beyond me. They're not kidding when they say time flies! Second, I haven't been as active on here, because I am trying to find my new normal. That of teacher, mother, housewife, … [Read more...]

30 for 30

30 for 30

Tomorrow I turn the BIG 30. I say that like it's old- but it's really not at all. Sometimes I feel like I barely know what I'm doing. In the grand scheme of things, I'm still a tween. But, I remember when I was a kid, 30 seemed so far away. An age that would take me an eternity to reach, and yet- here I am. I wanted to take a few minutes to … [Read more...]

Welcome to Our Back Yard

Welcome to Our Back Yard

When we went house hunting earlier this year, we knew we wanted a great back yard. One that would be large enough for entertaining, have decent landscaping, and have plenty of room for a certain little boy to explore. We also knew we wanted to live in a neighborhood, so we were faced with a challenge. When we looked at this house, and saw this back … [Read more...]

Our New Adventure- Columbus


So I've mentioned a few times that we were moving- but what I didn't mention is WHERE we were going. Because of my Hubby's job, we were asked if we would like to transfer, and we said yes. It's not a cross-country move or anything, but still a big commitment for us. We moved about an hour and a half away from where we've called home for the last 10 … [Read more...]

What the Heck is a FODMAP?


Sorry it has been all radio silence over here. When your body starts failing you right about the time you're selling your house, finding a new one, packing, and moving...everything else just falls by the wayside. This is the first time I've even cracked open my laptop in weeks! I just had no words to write or encouragement to share. I was … [Read more...]

Life Update


I thought I'd give a little update on our lives and why I haven't posted as often: -We're packing. We have an accepted offer on our house and are currently looking for our next home. We haven't fallen in love with *the one* yet, but we have a few we like. -Sickness. I was in the ER 3 weeks ago. The next week I got strep throat. And next week … [Read more...]

Home for Sale

Another little life update on what's happening in our neck of the woods... We decided to take a chance and put our house on the market. With Hubby's promotion, he's working more and he is already¬†based about 45 minutes away from us. He's spending a lot more time 2 hours north of us as well, so we thought moving a little closer would be in our … [Read more...]

That Time of Year


It's here- our bi-annual appointment with little man's neurosurgeon. It's usually a quick appointment, they check his head and note any changes. The last couple of years were really easy, but now we're getting to the time in which they said he may need another surgery. I'm terrified thinking of him having to undergo this procedure, especially being … [Read more...]

Life Update

Sometimes I forget the reason I even started this blog was to share our every day life, struggles, etc. I get caught up in the motherhood posts, and skincare, and forget to even write about our lives in general. That stops now- this began as an outlet for me to share our story, and it shall be again. Not every day- but on occasion, I want to update … [Read more...]
