I'm one of those people who overuses the word "love." In 10 Things I Hate About You (perfect movie from the 90s), Bianca says, "There's a difference between like and love. Because, I like my Skechers, but I love...
My lovely friend gave a demonstration about time management at our work orientation awhile back. A jar was held up and then filled with rocks. The rocks represented the big things we all have to do. For most moms,...
I'm approaching 2019 differently. In the past, I've made resolutions of grandeur, like the time I ran a half marathon with my sister. While this is something I'm proud of (and will probably never EVER do again) I know that...
The Hot Mess Mom. We love them.  I identify as one. And it's been a liberating term that's helped me ditch my perfectionism and settle nicely into a pool of "we're all in this together." I think most moms live in...
That Time I Lost My Wedding Ring… A mom has a lot to worry about during the day: keeping your kids alive and out of harm, what you are going to feed your them and your husband, how that stick...

  I never thought I'd be living with my mother again, but at age 37, it happened. And I'm pretty sure my husband NEVER planned on living with his mother-in-law. But hey, it happened. And surprise! It's actually working out okay....
The number of dads who stay home with their children has doubled since 1989. While mothers still make up the majority of stay-at-home-parents, an increasing number of fathers are joining the ranks. However, the public generally places less value...
I just got home from a 10-day rafting trip in the Grand Canyon with my husband. We were gone from work, cell phones, our kids and everything for 10 days! To say it was great is an understatement. Before...
A Pup and His Best Friend Hi, my name is Max.  I am a nine-year-old German Rottweiler.  My life I thought was pretty great a few years ago, but then I discovered something new - a best friend.  Before my best...
