Currently… In This Moment

I sit here, looking out the window. The sun is shining, and the sky is a beautiful shade of blue. This moment is one of contentment and remorse. At the beginning of the summer, I pledged to savour moments. I vowed to enjoy all the little things that the days brought...

An Old-Fashioned Blogging Update

Overcoming Obstacles

Today I was going to share a recipe post with you. I had the posting crafted, the photo taken, everything was ready to go… and then life happened. I had taken my daughters on an outing to a park. It was a park that was across town but I wanted them to enjoy this...

I Think I’m A Hypochondriac

I look at the Facebook status updates of friends who have the stomach flu and I suddenly feel sick to my stomach. I’m around someone with a cough or a sore throat and I immediately assume I will be afflicted with their ailment. My husband sometimes rolls his...
Happy Birthday Little Miss!

Happy Birthday Little Miss!

My oldest daughter turns six today! I can hardly believe it. Six!? It seems like just yesterday she was born. This precious, fragile bundle of joy showed me just how much I could love. I have watched her change and grow. I have had the pleasure of seeing her become a...
