Putting your art out for the world to critique is hard. It’s one of the most vulnerable things I’ve done in life. I always knew that I wanted to explore and nurture my artistic side, but I allowed my low self esteem to dictate my vision. Time and time, I would map out these life plans and dreams just to find every excuse in the … Continue reading How A Nikki Giovanni Quote Gave Me The Confidence I’d Been Longing For
As a young girl, I spent countless hours dreaming of my wedding, future family, and spouse. I still have some of my dream wedding gown sketches from 6th grade. I was young and my thoughts about marriage were pretty shallow. It didn’t help that my parents were divorced and couldn’t stand to be in the same room with each other. I didn’t have the best … Continue reading My Husband Wasn’t My Type. Well, I Thought He Wasn’t
I’ve only been a member of 2 churches as an adult. Similar to finding you’re forever spouse, searching for a church home is just as a special process. I was a member of my last church home for about 7 years, and after marrying my husband, he joined my church too.

Any mom that says motherhood is ALWAYS rewarding, or that it’s a walk in the park has either A) not been a parent long enough or B) is afraid to … Continue reading Are Kids Allowed? If Not, I Can’t Come…
I’m just a regular-smegular wife, mom and college student. My house is never clean, my nails are usually chipped with old polish, and everyday that the kids make it another day alive is a celebration in the books! (Laugh, it’s ok) I’m just here to share the things that keep me and my family afloat the boat of the happy life. Some call it mommy … Continue reading Shameless self-promotion is truly an under-appreciated form of art. Let me fix that.
I get it, chubby cheeks, and baby giggles make the manliest of men stop in their tracks to smile in admiration at a cute baby. I’m positive that babies have their own powers. I read somewhere that babies are literally scientifically created “cute,” so that mothers naturally want to care for them. Like, there’s science behind baby cuteness. Before my own kiddos, I never cared … Continue reading Please Don’t Ignore My Oldest Child
