You Tarzan, Me not Jane…

Before I EVEN begin this post---please for the love of all that is inspirational—watch this movie trailer...   The Legend of Tarzan (2016) (NOT the cartoon version) "A normal man can do the impossible to save the woman he loves. My husband is no normal man." O.M.G we love it! So——after seeing this movie, I … Continue reading You Tarzan, Me not Jane…

A Life Full of S’s: 2/6/17

Safety.  Security.  Simplicity.  Soft pillows.  Sex.  Salvation.  Skittles.  Shelter.  Sanity.  Solitude.      Saturdays. Strudel.  Sandwiches.  Steak.  Skating. Strolling.  Strollers.  Soccer.  Satellite.  Sweets.  Selfies. And Seclusion. Some of these things seem fine. Yes. But too much of any one thing can be our undoing. For some reason, as I awoke today my thoughts were simply … Continue reading A Life Full of S’s: 2/6/17

How A Cup of Coffee Changed My Marriage

I loved this post by Amanda Cox, I look up to her as a writer and have found guidance in her words. I myself, am struggling with this very same concept, and hearing from someone who has been married longer than I, and has a family to tend to in the process gives me someone to look to as a mentor of sorts. This post comes highly recommended (as it brought tears to my eyes, and I am not an easy cryer.) Read and Enjoy!

So the question is, can a cup of coffee change your life? Some of you know the magic of coffee. That first sip, and you go from death to life. Your brain works again…

My typical morning involves all three of my children, jumping to the floor and running to my room, firing on all cylinders. “Mom! Mom! We’re hungry! We’re hungry! Can I have_______?” Fill in the blank with three different, equally unacceptable breakfast choices. I stumble into the kitchen, trying to make sense of the little hooligans doing a circular tribal dance around me. “Mom! Mom! Mom!”

I probably agree to things like cookies, ice cream, and candy for…

Conservation of Time: 2/4/17

Ever feel like there is just NOT. ENOUGH. TIME? Not enough time in the day, not enough time in the week, not enough time in the morning, or before bed. There’s not enough time for pooping—alone, or showering— alone;  much less for “me time”—alone!?!?! Heck, there’s barely any time left for reading this dang blog post!! … Continue reading Conservation of Time: 2/4/17
