“There’s a man on our roooooooof!” went my five year old’s battlecry as he ran down the street to the neighbor’s house, shoeless and in clothes that didn’t match. “Walker?! Honey dinner is ready! What are you doing?” I tried to yell before he was through their gate and out of sight… This was a […]
It’s every working mom’s dream. It’s a right of passage. In truth, it’s an occasion that truly deserves it’s own hashtag: #kindgartenroundupmypaycheck (it’s a work in progress; suggestions are appreciated). Cheers, toasts, congratulations, and celebrations are in order the minute the last child graduates from childcare to kindergarten. Money materializes into your bank account, and […]

It takes a village to raise a child. We’ve all likely heard this phrase. When I was pregnant with our eldest son, we lived in Alaska, thousands of miles from our family. We had a lovely village, created from friends who had become like family. They visited us in the hospital when he was born, […]

I have been trying incredibly hard lately to do adult things, like making healthy food choices and doing this bizarre thing called running without something chasing you. It is hard and makes me want to cry when no one is looking. But, I have been told more than twice that the time is now, and […]

It’s been a while since I posted a recipe, so I thought I would share a great summer weeknight dinner! My six year old, who until I served her this REFUSED to eat anything green, said this was “the best day of my life” the first time I made this dinner, which had avocado and […]
Birthdays are a big celebration at our house. We love balloons, handmade gifts, and singing the happy tune too many times to count. And for those that know me personally, there is no hiding the fact that I love to plan a good party, birthday parties to be exact. Having three kiddos and our oldest […]
I grew up 320 miles north of Knoxville, so quite literally “from birth” my kids have been strapped in tightly and hauled across both Kentucky state lines. While I don’t fancy myself a professional car packer, after six years of schlepping kids, I do have some experience in attempting to keep the peace in the car. […]
