Dear Not So Perfect Mom: Today you will not do everything right. Your children will get angry because you won't let them do something they really want to do. They will stomp their feet as they walk away. They may even throw a tantrum and have a complete melt down. But don't worry. Stick to … Continue reading A Letter to Mom
It's been a few weeks since my last post and some of you may be asking where have I been (and some may not even care). Well, since the hurricane I've just been exhausted.

I'm the teacher, the counselor, the fashion coordinator, the housekeeper, the taxi driver, the "I feel like I'm everything to everyone" person. The struggle is real sometimes. I feel like I'm a broken record and constantly repeating the … Continue reading Mom Purpose

Many people have reminded me to enjoy the younger years because you blink and they're in high school and heading … Continue reading New School Year

Staycation's seem to be the going trend right now. And with the kids gearing up to begin school soon, … Continue reading Family Staycation
In light of the recent tragedy in Branson, Missouri, where 9 members of one family lost there lives, I wanted to take the time out and say how important it is to embrace family.

I don't even know how to begin this post. Let's just say my emotions this weekend have been up, down, and all around. One minute I'm stressed, the next, I'm inspired. About what you ask? Just life. But I refuse to give up! On Friday, my daily devotional was about being thankful in spite of. … Continue reading Refuse to Give Up!
This post is for the wonderful man I married almost 12 years ago, to my awesome father who's always been there for me, and to all dads who love and support the children they have birthed into this world. Men, we need you. We need your support as we raise kids together (or apart). We … Continue reading Happy Father’s Day!
