I don’t get seasonally depressed, I more get seasonally annoyed. My van filling up with coats and hats day after day, preschool drop off in the rain, wet carts at Target.  Really, in the grand scheme of things, no big deal, but still, definitely annoying. The kids and I end up doing a lot of […]

I’M THIRTY!!! The big 3-0! Today was a normal, hum-drum day. That’s what happens when you’re a mama and your birthday falls on a weekday :) The kids and I ate maple glazed old fashioned donuts as a treat for breakfast and Jem and I shared one of the new Pumpkin Spice bottled Frappuccino. When […]

It’s no secret that I love Lily Jade. These bags are truly the most versatile of any mom purse out there and recently my best friend, Leah, humored me with a photo shoot to show you just how versatile Lily Jade bags can be. You see, Leah is a teacher who is also a mom. So, her […]

Sunny days mean nothing more than an outing around here. No matter the pile o’ dishes or the tower of laundry we’re hitting the road for an adventure as soon as the sun beckons us. Because — well, that’s just what you do in the Pacific Northwest. The world stops at a 60 degree, no […]
