Gluten-Free, Hashbrown Crust Quiche

I am not a chef, not even close. I don’t even have a love for cooking, my sister got those genes … and mad skills. Let me tell you! When I am old and gray I pray she takes me in and keeps my belly full with her amazing recipes. She is only 6 years my junior, but […]

Have You Tried Doctor On Demand?

“This post was sponsored by Doctor On Demand as part of a Blog Blast Activation for Influence Central.” I love my kid’s pediatrician, really I do. In fact, she was my doctor growing up! When we moved back to my hometown I immediately called and begged her to take my littles on as new patients […]

This week we had the first glimpse of summer and it was amazing! 80 degrees in April, who even thought that was possible?!? With the burst of nice weather, I’ve been practicing being “fun mom”.

Mistakes + Forgiveness and a Lily Jade Giveaway!

“Mom, you sound like a weally loud lion.” He said it with sadness in his eyes and  a shivering bottom lip.

Apparently me. Me, the […]

There they are. The reason I write. The inspiration for just about everything. Love them. Love them big time. If you would have told me 6 years ago that I’d be earning a decent part-time income from sharing words on the internet I never would have believed you. In fact, some of you have written lately […]

Style File — Stitch Fix Sisters

It stinks having one of your sisters live far away. It’s like part of your heart, part of your history, is absent. Thank goodness unlimited texting came into the world, because I would have a crazy high phone bill every month if not for that upgrade! I don’t my girl, Hannah, being away one bit and regularly […]

Daylight Saving is treatin’ me real fine. I’m LOVING the longer days, fresh flowers, and sometimes warmer weather. In the last week we’ve oscillated (isn’t that a great word?) between rain boots and sandals, wind breakers and shorts, but all in all, Spring is good.  Truly, I’ve been a little overwhelmed with all life is […]
