This week I listened to an episode of the Boss Up! podcast for momtrepreneurs entitled "When Bad Attitude Trumps Good Work" This episode was geared toward the business end of things, but my mind immediately went to my attitude towards motherhood lately. I know my "why" for my creative ventures, but m . . .
So here's the thing. I've seen a little bit of a Mother's Day guilt trip floating around the internet recently. You know the trolls that say you cannot possibly be a good mom if you are seeking gifts for Mother's Day other than the hand-crafted macaroni and glue kind?! I just want to go out on a . . .
Hey you! Goodness, I am way past due for a Life Actually post where I share life actually. It's not all Pinterest perfect or Instagram worthy photos over here in the day to day. We've got a lot more mess and bedhead going on. Ha! So, if you'd like to see what we've been up to for the past few m . . .
If your home is anything like mine, morning routines set the tone for the rest of the day. My smallest little currently needs about an hour of full-on snuggle time in the mornings to wake up and get going. At the same time, I need to do a few of the things on the list below to feel like I'm ready to . . .
Greyson could not have been even one yet when the desire to teach him to read hit me. Somehow, the idea was romanticized in my mind.

Mark and I realized that it has been a REALLY long time since we did anything just for fun as . . .
The days and nights and even weeks tend to run together around here. As a family, we are in a busy season of life. Mark is back at work (he was off for the summer) and school (his bachelor’s degree), I am putting more time and energy into my creative ventures, and Greyson has started preschool at h . . .

And, of course, NaNa had to add a few as Halloween treats this year. They were gifted to the boys early, while NaNa and Papa were in town t . . .
We got our family/maternity pictures in just in time this morning! We might win the award for the palest (yes, it's a word...I looked it up on dictionary.com;) family ever but I am loving the white winter back drop. Don't worry we took plenty of breaks to warm up in the car between shots! G still . . .
We are settling in at the new house and feeling more and more at home! We have even had guests over a few times, something I didn't think that I would want to do until after more of our renovations were complete. It was nice though to welcome people into the home and show them our progress. It is . . .
