I remember the days when I searched high and low for an adorable teacher gift.  YouRead More →

Well hello my friend.  I have actually been looking forward to this post.  Rather I’ve been looking forward to getting some new questions from This Side of the Pond.  Sometimes it’s hard to know what to write about and having some questions is taking the easy way out helpful.   Without further ado, let’s get started with this week’s questions.   1.

  Today, I’m joining Joyce  for a little q&a fun.  I found her as I was hopping around blogosphere and thought this would be fun.  So here goes…   1. What is one area of your life where you’re a perfectionist? Is that a good thing?​ Is everything an official area?  Sadly, I strive for perfection way too much….& sadly, I fall short every time.  But hey, that doesn’t stop me from trying. Is it a good thing?  Depends on who you ask.  Mr. Louise Marie would say no for sure.  It makes his honey dos much harder.   2. What’s something you find perfectly ridiculous?Read More →

  On the day I became a mother for the first time, my whole world changed.  Everything shifted.  Suddenly, I was head over heels in love with this tiny baby and would do anything for  him – at any time day or night. (lots of at night 🙂 )  Truly, he brought joy.  He was the greatest thing that ever happened to me, and he gave me a new purpose. I was a career minded woman and gave it all up to stay home full-time with this tiny being.   I didn’t want to miss one moment.  Luckily, that is just what I did.  I was thereRead More →
