Fellow Moms

Finding Fellow Moms

The other night I went to meet with some fellow Homeschooling Mommas in our community. As we were all getting settled, and introducing ourselves, I came to a funny realization. Whenever Moms meet each other for the first time, the second question we¬†ask each other is, "How many kids do you have?" Every single time. Name, then how many kids do you … [Read more...]

Of Mess and Moxie

I haven't posted a book review in awhile, but I had to share this treasure with you. As you may know, I am a bit of a fangirl for my friend Jen Hatmaker. She speaks so much truth, but does it with such humor and conviction that you want to sit at her feet and listen to everything she has to say. Of Mess and Moxie is just that. A … [Read more...]

10 Years

10 Years

To Mikey on our celebration of 10 years, We have an epic love- an everlasting one. The kind they've written about since the beginning of time, and will continue to pen long after we've turned to dust. Love songs can't touch what we have. Not even close. In all the heartbreak and uncertainty we've been through, my love for you has only … [Read more...]

Living That Mom Life

I've been on the struggle bus this week. Having a 5 year old is no joke. I thought as they got older, it would get easier. But that is just NOT the case. Each year, each stage, comes with their own set of challenges. I feel like as soon as I think I've 'got this whole mom thing down', my little guy switches the flip. It's hard. It's … [Read more...]

Books I’ve Read So Far in 2017

Books I've Read So Far in 2017

Do you follow me on Goodreads? If you do you'll see that I've already made it through quite a few books these past few months. Sickness in January had me reading the most books I think I've ever read in a month. I was okay with it, because in 2016 for the first time in forever I failed to reach my reading goal. Not this year! I thought I'd … [Read more...]

Moody Sisters Spring Favorites

I'm on a Spring kick this week! (More on that tomorrow!) I'm worshiping this warm weather that we've been having and even loving the storms that are prepping my garden for flowers! Since we've been on the go so much, trying to spend as much time outside before the weather changes- Indiana weather goes from hot to cold and back again in minutes- … [Read more...]

IMG_5403

This year- being a BIG birthday for my little man, I had every intention of throwing a BIG party. Lots of frills, lots of people, handmade this and that. Lots of details. And probably spending a small fortune. But after asking my little guy what he wanted- he of course just wanted a party featuring his favorite cartoon character...Blaze! And … [Read more...]
