The Best Books I Read Last Year

Most years I read 60+ books. Some years, close to 100. Last year I managed just 17. 2020 … and then 2021 hit me hard and I just let go of reading. When I thought about it, it made me terribly sad. I missed my stories. I missed learning. I missed doing something just for […]

Review: Yoto Player – It’s As Great As You Might Think

Our Yoto Player has been part of the family for six months now. And you know what that means … it’s high time for a full review! Plus, I wanted to be sure to pass on a 10% coupon toward your first purchase of $99+. Ok, here’s the scoop. I bought a Yoto Player for […]

Happy Birthday, Charlie!

Where has the year gone, sweet boy? We cannot believe you are one! To think, that just a year ago we were snuggling up for the first time. I completed your birth video just in time for us all to reminisce. It brought tears to our eyes and so many smiles. What a perfect day […]

Carrot Curry Soup

Well, well! Nothing like rolling in with a fresh recipe as a blog comeback, yeah? We hung out in Dallas last week and in an attempt to make a healthier choice I opted for carrot curry soup over pizza at the Perot Museum cafeteria. I was skeptical and then … it was delicious! My one […]

2021 Christmas Gift Guide

Is your Christmas shopping done yet? Mine is not … but it is getting there! Thankfully, it’s not too big of a task these days. Over the years we have scaled back our holiday gift giving – stockings and a few family gifts mostly. I like it better that way. It allows us to focus […]

Five Favorites: Transition Edition

Whoa! Like, where have I been?!? Well, we finished packing (it was comical), the kids and I moved in my sister (so grateful!), we bought a house in Texas (before we ever saw it in person), Dominic went to set things up (we miss him!), and in just a few weeks we’re road trippin’ south […]

Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Five Favorite: Postpartum Edition

Well, we have made it halfway through the 4th trimester! It has been WILD to say the least. In the midst of birth recovery we sold our house and are now heavy into packing and prepping for an out of state move. Charlie is a dream baby. He just goes with the flow and loves […]

Charlie’s Birth Story

It’s probably not the greatest mom move to say that Charlie’s birth was my favorite, but I’m going to anyway. Not my favorite kid (they’re all my favorite!), but my favorite birthing experience, I think. I claim this partly because he is my last. Because I want to go out on this whole pregnancy and […]
