Five Friday Favorites for Moms

To be a mother is to know great pride, disappointment, love, anxiety, and joy. It can be the best and hardest job on Earth. We try and toil – comparing ourselves to others – while also promising ourselves we will do it our own way. As I reflect on this Mother’s Day I realize my… read more

True Beauty

Hello friends. I’ve missed you. Sorry for the absence. We went away. My little foursome shut things down, lounged on the beach, and lazily lingered in each others company for a whole week. It was blissful and the break from technology allowed me to really think about the fingerprints I create on this blog every… read more

Five Friday Favorites from Target

I have a love/hate thing going on with Target (it’s mostly love). For me it’s a dangerous place. I can go in for one small item and I have almost never walked out without spending $150. I need ONLY sunscreen and I leave with a t-shirt, shampoo, 3 different sized light bulbs, and a box… read more

Spring Styles

Nothing like the first warm spring day to make you lust for new clothes that scream “Here comes summer!” In the weeks to come I’ll be putting away sweaters and pulling out skirts and dresses. Boots will be tucked into the back of the closet and socks will be pushed to the back of the… read more

Five Friday Favorites

Things I am loving right now… Imagine the options. I bought 2 of these for each of my minis earlier this winter, and I threw 2 XL in the basket for me too. (*Secret tip – shopping the girls/teen section can yield major rewards for adults too.) It’s great for layering and will be adorable… read more

Five Friday Favorites

Just a few of my favorites… Lashblast has been the love of my life for 4 years. She never runs, never clumps, and can even stand up to those hard to handle teary moments. She’s tough.

Hair, there, and everywhere. Hair!

  (Me, fresh from the shower with BIG hair.) There. I’ve said it. I have BIG hair. You who have seen me with shiny, smooth, polished hair might not believe it. But it’s true. I have made peace with my big hair and I quite¬†regularly revel in it’s quirky, kinky, frizzy, unruliness – especially during… read more
