The Brilliance of Joy

Has motherhood been what you expected it to be? I spent some time talking to a friend this morning, and we shared the aspects of being a mom we had anticipated and which ones caught us off guard. I was completely unprepared for the difficulties of motherhood, beginning with pregnancy.…

I Made a Different Choice

Today, I lost the battle. The juggling act of moms everywhere, attempting to accomplish an unlimited number of tasks in a limited amount of time. But when mom loses, who actually wins? It’s 4pm, and my groceries are still on the counter from the morning. Lunch is somehow on the…

Exactly Where I Want to Be

I’m in a moment of motherhood I truly enjoy. I’m absolutely loving my life as a stay-at-home mom, but this was not always true. Having three children in two years led to many frustrating and exhausting experiences, but I feel as if the girls are old enough now that days…

Finding Gratitude in Grief

Today is the day I muster up the courage to tell you that I miscarried. It has been overwhelming, and to be honest, the idea of telling even one more person makes me want to cry. I feel as if every time I talk about it, I am moving backwards,…

The Maid of Honor

Being a maid of honor is not for sissies. I have been bestowed the honor for my soon-to-be sister in law’s upcoming wedding. We have spent countless hours planning the wedding, creating the guest list, locking in vendors. Now we’re finalizing the details. If you think wrangling kids is hard,…

Happy Thanksgiving!

I have a lot to be thankful for this year, but it is often easy to forget our blessings. I’ve spent much of the last two years wishing my house was bigger or my backyard cooler, but this year I’m simply thankful to have a home. Learning of the Californians…

An Apocalyptic Week

I am from a small town that the nation had never really heard of. I had never seen our name in major headlines. I had never heard of a president tweeting about us. But last week we were hit with a mass shooting and a wildfire that have devastated our…

A Wacky Day

Today has been a wacky day. The kind of day where my socks don’t match, and the house looks messy, even though I’ve spent all day cleaning. The kind of day where no amount of sleep can actually make me feel less tired. And of course I’m not the only…
