Shelter-in-Place with a toddler and newborn, day 5,798. Toilet paper supplies are dwindling. Hands are raw from washing. The house is in disarray. Emotions are all over the place. I have memorized every episode of Daniel Tiger and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. I know all the Disney songs. I’m officially an expert baby-wearer. I’ve ordered every […]

My husband and I are down to the wire of picking a name for baby #2. We have a boy name, but the girl name is just not happening. We both have very strong feelings and opinions, and unfortunately, those strong feelings and opinions are not lining up with each other. It doesn’t help that […]

I have had a Facebook account since 2004. I’ve been on Twitter since 2009. I think my first Instagram post was somewhere around 2012. So I’ve been on social media for a while. I’ve seen it change from a place to post random thoughts and pictures of college parties and football games to a place […]

Happy New Year! Happy New DECADE! I love any excuse to set new goals, fill out blank planners, and start life with a fresh, clean slate. New Year’s is a pretty wonderful holiday for a Type A planner like me. So when the new year doesn’t just mark a new year, but a new decade? […]

Long lay the world in sin and error pining, ‘Til He appeared, and the soul felt its worth. One of my favorite lines in any Christmas song, ever. Did your parents ever promise you something big? Maybe a special toy for your birthday, or a promise to take a trip somewhere? Do you remember the […]

I never knew how much WORK went into Thanksgiving Day until I got married. On both my mom and my dad’s sides of the family, you aren’t asked to bring any food to family Thanksgiving until you’re married. And even then, you aren’t trusted to bring an actual cooked dish for the first few years. […]

When I was younger, it was the dark. And spiders (and if I’m being honest, spiders still really creep me out). When I was a teenager, I had a crippling fear of not being seen in exactly the right way. I didn’t really want to be part of the popular crowd, but I also went […]

I love September! I may be a little biased, because it IS my birthday month, but how can you not love a month that involves football, apple picking, and also kicks off with a three-day weekend?! Looking at you, Labor Day, the day in which Labor is never involved. Well, in theory, anyway. I didn’t […]

How is it August already? I blinked and summer is gone. Somehow it’s time for school supplies, new shoes, new clothes, haircuts, doctor appointments, dentist appointments, and all. the. things. that have to get done to get everyone ready for the new school year. My kid is only in nursery school and I’m overwhelmed! I […]

Mark 5:25-34 32But Jesus kept looking around to see who had done it. 33Then the woman, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell at his feed and trembling with fear, told him the whole truth. 34He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your […]
