How to be content with what you have…

This is something I struggle with on a daily basis. But, it's complicated. I love my family completely--I wouldn't change a thing about them. What I'm talking about is material possessions. I feel like with so much social media, all we see are things we should have, want or strive for. We should aim for … Continue reading How to be content with what you have…

Our whole house--seriously, summer can't come soon enough!! My son is ready for school to be over & getting him up in the mornings is getting to be more of a chore. My daughter is eagerly waiting for the beach. I'm just ready for a break from the daily grind. We planted our flowers weeks … Continue reading Sooooo ready for summer…

Mother/Son Night…

So, Dex & I went to our first Mother/Son night tonight through his school. My goodness, it was crazy!! I seriously felt like we were at a rave for kids. There was laser robot dancers, a crazy strobe light dance floor with a dj...laser tag, a Mario Party truck, trucks & k9 dog attacks. All … Continue reading Mother/Son Night…

Easy fencing!

September was super busy! With all of us still getting used to Dex being in school, we've been a bit sluggish. But, we're also still trying to have as much fun while the weather is nice and with the weather changing, that means I'm racing to get all the home projects that I had planned … Continue reading Easy fencing!

What’s a “perfect mom”?

Let me be clear, I am in no way a perfect mom. I had someone make that comment to me the other day and it has bothered me since. I'm not sure exactly what a perfect mom even is. I love my kids, but they drive me nuts. I love spending time with them, but … Continue reading What’s a “perfect mom”?

Opening back up my shop…

The plan is to reopen my shop this fall. I'm so conflicted though--a part of me wants to just redesign the whole shop. The other part of me just says to keep it the same. It's been about 2 years since I went on hiatus & that's a lot of time to fall behind. I … Continue reading Opening back up my shop…

Letting our kids grow up…

My son started kindergarten today. I'm both happy for him and heartbroken, scared, etc. My husband & I met with his teacher, the school psychologist & principal yesterday to go over what the plan is for him and the evaluation for an IEP. He's in a great school & they all seemed like they know … Continue reading Letting our kids grow up…

So, I painted the door…

So, I mentioned before how I was thinking about painting the pantry door. Well, I did & I love it! All of the walls in our house are still so white. When we moved in, all we painted was the bedrooms. And with our kitchen being white, I needed some color. I love it--it gives … Continue reading So, I painted the door…

Doing life wrong?

"You have to let your kids do what they want to do. That's how life works. You're doing it wrong! You guys are doing life wrong!" This is what our 5 year old son told us a few months ago. Not going to lie--it's stuck with me. Maybe he was on to something. I feel … Continue reading Doing life wrong?
