What a wonderful month April is. The wild flowers are in full bloom, the windows are open, the days are longer and the kids are happier. We really enjoy spring here in Spring, Texas. This month I wanted to focus on laughter. I have chosen to intentionally add more laughter into my life and wanted to challenge you to do the same. Do you know that there are actually laughter therapists? Isn't … [Read more...] about Spring has sprung!
Today I dropped my kids off at school and came home, rolled up my pajama sleeves and got busy! I pulled out a big trash can and started in the pantry. Next I moved to the famous "junk drawer" and my goodness, junk it was! I didn't even think twice, just kept filling up the trash can. Next on to the junk-drawer-overflow-drawer! Come on, seriously? Then onto the two utensil drawe … [Read more...] about Time to Go!
I am not a perfectionist! Anyone who knows me knows that. I'm the "get it done" girl, not the "keep working at it till it's perfect" girl. I mean, c'mon people, even God after creating the world said "...and it was good". Today, however, I must say was one of those rare but awesome days when I can honestly say, it was a near-perfect day. We are on our spring break this week. We decided to hang … [Read more...] about Near Perfect

Today I was on a walk with my sweet dog. I like to let her off the leash when I can so she can run and chase squirrels and let her hair down.

A beautiful bird singing to me. I looked up and saw the sun shining … [Read more...] about A little birdie told me…
Recently a post was going around on Facebook about listing 25 random things about yourself. At first I thought it was a weird idea, but as I started listing my random facts, I enjoyed the task. So often I think moms forget who they are. It's hard to know what we like or who we are, yet we totally could easily list 25 things about our kids. Take a moment if you have not already listed your 25 … [Read more...] about Who am I?
What a difference a day makes... Isn't that a song? Well, kudos to the artist who sings it, because in my life ~ it certainly rings true! Recently my friend C and I were visiting on the phone and we were laughing. We were talking about how every, oh, let's say 28 days or so we tend to "disappear" and not talk to each other. She says she noticed how I sort of pull in for about 3 days and it used … [Read more...] about Forget about "time outs", I’m taking a "time in"!!!
