Ladies, can we have a real, honest conversation?  Today I want to discuss gifts for the teacher – the ones teachers really want.  I know that Teacher Appreciation Week is approaching in a few short weeks, and many of you are trying to come up with adorable gifts for your little one to take to his/her teacher.  Well, let me help you with this task.  After all, you don’t really KNOW this teacher.  It’s hard to figure out something good, right?  I know exactly what the teacher really wants. I remember the days when I searched high and low for an adorable teacher gift.  YouRead More →

I am one of those girls who likes to look put together when I go out.  Make no mistake.  I said I LIKE to.  It does not always work out that way.  I am a real girl living in the real world.  I have 3 kids, a house to clean, meals to cook, and endless things on my TO DO list – just like everyone else.  Sometimes pulled together is just not going to happen.  However, I find that if I just put on a little lipstick and mascara I feel MUCH better and don’t look so much like a walking corpse.  Lipstick is oneRead More →

To be honest,  I fell in love with this simple book quote as a large framed piece of art.  Have you ever had that happen?   When you see something and are truly touched by it?  Well, that’s exactly what happened. As itRead More →

Hello!  I am so glad you’ve found me.  I’ve been reading ‘how to start a blog’ posts for some time…wanting to….wondering if I could….thinking I have nothing to say….BUT ~maybe I do, maybe you wonder about the same things as me, maybe you just want to feel like you’re not alone in life’s challenges.  As a new mom (back in the dark ages) I joined a new mom’s group at my church.  This group became my lifeline as I embarked on the trip of a lifetime – motherhood.  I can’t put into words how much those friendships meant to me as well as just knowing thatRead More →
