Looking back on the past seven months, I’ve had to face some truths about myself. In more ways than one I am extremely blessed. Lucky. Fortunate. The human body is such a miracle and the changes that a woman’s body instinctively makes to support new life is nothing short of incredible. So I confess. I […]
Last year was quite a whirl wind, and when it ended I was completely relieved. From starting my career, the birth of our son, getting our older kids into sports and even seeing our oldest graduate from high school, the year was definitely NOT short on life changing and exciting events. My biggest struggle getting […]

SURPRISE!!! YOUR PREGNANT!!!
All of that energy that would be expended by them was absorbed by me and I would be on overload, wanting to, rather needing to shut down. I realized it was making me a cranky, less attentive and frustrated mom…So I took drastic measures and ran away!

The woman sitting next to me didn’t seem too amused that she had to sit next to someone with a baby and this time Mr. Grey was awake and alert, screeching… just for fun! There was nothing I could do!
Well everyone… Christmas has gone and the New Year is finally here, and after all the commotion, “vacation”, and the kids being home for weeks, it is time to finally get back to “normal” life. But before I do, I want to share what I learned about myself this 2016 and maybe you learned some of the […]
Here is a cute DIY for the sewing moms out there! These little elf slippers are fairly easy to make, I’d say a novice could accomplish these slippers as long you take your time and follow the instructions carefully. You can give these slippers as a stocking stuffer gift for anyone in your family, or […]
These cookie cutter photo frames make a sweet gift set for family members and make any desk or table festive and fun.They are a great way to make use of all those photos that haven’t quite made it into the photo album you were planning to finish. You can use the original photos, but I recommend scanning […]
