Things We’re Loving Right Now!

{Maggie}  An appropriate one for March; reading month.  We’ve recently started reading my five year old chapter books before she goes to bed and these Disney, “Never Girls” are great for holding her attention.  There is usually one full page picture in each chapter that she looks forward to seeing, some rich vocabulary that is...

Review: “All Joy and No Fun” a new and interesting parenting book by Jennifer Senior

I caught snippets of an NPR interview with the author of this book All Joy and No Fun while I was driving around in my car running errands one day. I was immediately hooked by the title of this book alone. As my parenting  responsibilities have grown exponentially since adding a second child (who is turning into an extremely...

At Midnight.

I forget about the drama that ensued first thing in the morning about what you want to wear. I don’t remember that you spilled pulverized corn flakes all over the couch. I acquire amnesia regarding the incessant begging for “just one more show.” I am blind to the fact that you drug more sticks and leaves that...

An Ode to Honesty

Posted by on Jan 31, 2014 in Be Whole, Featured Posts, Looking In | 0 comments

So I’ve been thinking about honesty lately, and what it means to be honest and what it looks like to be honest, really honest, and how that affects my life and so forth.  And frankly, that concept scares me a little.  Because if I was honest, really honest, then others would know I didn’t have my act together. For...

I know with New Years in sight that many people may be still in resolution mode.  Whether you’re hoping to eat less meat this year, utilize your crockpot a bit more, or save some money (we’re hoping to finish off that last student loan), this is a great recipe to have in your aresenal.  Now, I get that a vegetarian version of a sloppy...

Kid Craft Essentials

I post a lot of DIY’s here on the site as well as my personal blog.  They vary and use a handful of different supplies; supplies that I’ve collected over many years and have a slight addiction to.  But I recognize that not everyone shares my sickness, ahem, hoarding tendencies with craft supplies and often wonder what a good arsenal...

An Open Calendar…

Posted by on Jan 8, 2014 in Be Informed, Featured Posts, Looking Home | 0 comments

I love January.  The crisp snow, the piercing cold, the new year – they ring in a sort of freshness to the year, a clean start.  I’m a huge ‘new beginnings’ kind of person, but I also love to linger around the new year in remembrance of things that have already passed.  January 4, the day I write this,...

Things We’re Loving Right Now

Maggie……….. This new candle from Bath & Body Works is amazing.  It’s a perfect blend of fresh basil and clean kitchen and crisp winter all wrapped into one.  I’ll confess…….I have four of them sitting under my kitchen sink ready to be burned as soon as one gets used up.  It’s hard to resist...
