I was sitting on the couch, my daughter was playing toys and my husband was playing a game on his phone next to me. As I was scrolling through Facebook and Instagram the thought popped into my head “I haven’t posted in a while... how boring is my life that I haven’t had anything to … Continue reading Living An Instagram Worthy Life
I was feeling pretty motivated the other day - cooked dinner and did laundry and cleaned the baby’s room. All in the same night. May not seem like much, but it’s a pretty big deal for me...the girl whose mom cleaned her room until she was about 24 #noshame. At the end of all that … Continue reading It’s Okay!
As I was going through my bookshelf, I noticed something interesting. I have tons of books. Books of all genres by many different authors. This isn't the interesting part.

Often overlooked in lieu of faster-paced thrill rides such as Space Mountain … Continue reading But really… Do ALL lives matter?
Tonight, my nephew was awarded the Most Improved Player award at his school's basketball banquet. Call me biased, but I think this is one of the most incredible awards someone can receive.
