I have 12+ posts hanging out in my drafts folder that I'm not even feeling remotely inspired to complete at the moment. I also desperately need to write. I need to put words on paper like a cranky child needs a protein snack and a two-hour nap. And for those non-parents reading...that is dire. So … Continue reading Summer in Review – Part 1
***Updated since yesterday's original post*** The weather has been a bit wonky here, and I spent much of yesterday fighting with my WiFi. I finally gave up and uploaded pics from the mobile WordPress app on my phone and called it a night. Now I'm having trouble editing (reducing the size) of the pictures. Anyway, … Continue reading A Snippet of Joy – #WGWW
http://momastery.com/blog/2015/09/02/its-not-you-its-them/ I LOVE this so much I can't say enough... This is a slight deviation from WGWW, but I'm a big believer in real. That lovely picture of my precious children on that beautiful beach in my earlier post was a direct result of the behavior wise Glennon describes in the link above.

I took this photo over Easter weekend and it makes me smile every time I see it. I can't begin to describe the … Continue reading His Happy Place
I'm flitting from one thing to the next and can't land on one thing in particular. I've been engulfed, smothered, and consumed by a grief that I didn't know was possible. i picked up the phone Saturday around noon and heard my mom's voice, but it still feels like a dream. "Kitty's dead." I want … Continue reading The Ugly
It's been a rough few days, y'all. So today we did what we do when we're not sure how to make sense of this big, beautiful, tragic life. We went to the beach. It didn't make everything okay, but I feel like I can face the world now. I'm looking forward to summer and lots … Continue reading Happy Easter!
Summer has been busy! I've been doing better living in the moment than recording it, which seems to be a bit of a problem for me as a writer. I'm also adjusting to being with my children ALL day. I didn't think I had much time when they were in preschool for three hours, but … Continue reading Summer Update
