My son watched a whole lot of Thomas the Train. I literally … [Read more...]

This past weekend, my Husband and I had a date night. As parents of a small child, date nights are few and far between. But, now that he's getting a little older, we are beginning to see how important it is for us, as a couple, to have time alone with each other. Even if it's for only a few hours. We sat down across the table from each other, at … [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

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.

Not this year! I thought I'd … [Read more...]
