Time For An Update

Where did the last 4 weeks go?  I feel like I blinked and it should be March still instead of April 11th. Sorry for our lack of posts lately. Life has been great, but really full! Full of times with family and friends and also full of cleaning, clearing and preparing. To sell our house—again. If you were following along with the blog in the fall then you know that I wrote a post about our family moving. Check it out here if you … Continue Reading »


Valentine’s Day Traditions

In honor of Valentine’s day being one week away, I thought I’d go back to last year’s post about what we do as a family to celebrate “love day.” Just to update–our 2017 traditions are underway and this year has been especially fun to read through the hearts that I post on my girls’ doors each morning! My oldest daughter is well aware of this  “heart” routine and anticipates her little piece of adoration each day. While my almost 2-year-old, giggles and points to … Continue Reading »


Seasons of Life

Y’all parenting is HARD. One thing I’ve been struggling with these last two years is who I am as a mom. I went from a Biochemistry degree, a Master in Education, teaching high school and coaching cheerleading, to cleaning up poop and puke all day… Before I go any further let me state for the record that I am NOT COMPLAINING about being a mom or where the Lord has led me!! I love my daughter and all those years I yearned for … Continue Reading »

An Apple A Day

In the midst of the holiday season and staying on top of just “normal life” activities, I’ve realized that my oldest daughter, who is now 5, doesn’t have a lot of structure outside of her school day– before she leaves and after she gets home. I’m a newbie at parenting a school-aged child, and thankfully Macey-my daughter, is more than willing to be my Guinea pig with new strategies or activities I find. A few things about my big girl, Macey- she is … Continue Reading »


A $1 Idea for Kids

A quick post about something awesome for kids that literally costs $1.00. My mom came across these Color and Play coloring books at the Dollar Store a few months ago, and they have been a hit in our house. These coloring books take coloring to a new level—and my kids love it! Kinsey (also Doc McStuffins for the moment, lol) helped me with this post below! Find a picture in the Color and Play book that has a special “star frame” on the … Continue Reading »


For Sale

I still don’t know how all the pieces fit together, but it’s time that my words make it officially on the screen. I’ve been wrestling with this—like I should have complete answers for everything—but I’m still unsure. We are moving. Moving from a place that if I can just pause and say— is precious to us. In an almost impossible and dark situation, Augusta GA has become a sweet gift. God first drew us out of our hometown and into a very unknown … Continue Reading »


Mom Struggles

Do you ever have those moments where you just feel like you can’t do anything right? That’s how I felt last night and have been feeling for the past couple of weeks actually. Specifically when it comes to PARENTING. Being a mom has been the most challenging job I’ve ever had…that includes teaching and coaching moody and emotional (not all of them!) high school teenagers!  Since I stopped working, measuring myself as a mom is the only kind of real achievement I reach these … Continue Reading »


Magnetic & Chalkboard Space for Little Ones!

When we bought our refrigerator for our new home last July I didn’t think twice about the fact that the front of it was not magnetic.  (Enter my soon to be one year old daughter who LOVES to play with the magnets!) I wanted to have a space for her at our house to play and stick magnets and thankfully, there is an empty space on the end of our kitchen cabinets that was the perfect spot! So I went online and found a … Continue Reading »


January Favorites

What I’ve been loving this month— Recipe- These Chicken Gyros have been my favorite go to recipe every week this month. I’m not lying…you’ve gotta try these! The marinade is so good and makes the chicken taste AMAZING. We love any type of Mediterranean food—but this is now one of our favorites! This recipe is pretty light, healthy and easy to make!  Music- We play A LOT of princess music or Disney Pandora stations at our house. We love it, but lately I’ve been trying … Continue Reading »
