Is anybody out there? Just making sure, because it's been nearly two months since the last time I published a blog post. I always say that a lot has been happening but when I say that I really mean it! So I guess I will take advantage of this social distancing/quarantine due to the COVID-19… Continue reading Hello?
It has been a week- let me tell ya! As excited as I was for Christmas to come this year, I was more excited for it to be over. I am just drained. Our household was hit by a "super cold" (as I've been calling it), even the littlest one. Christmas Day consisted of us… Continue reading A New Year
Hello everyone! I am writing to you from the other side of having a two year old daughter and it feels...tiring. I've always been huge into birthdays, celebrating them with a bang and going all out, leaving no exceptions with our baby girl. I've spent the last six weeks planning this elaborate tea party for… Continue reading On the Other Side of 2
Am I the only one who finds themselves holding onto the people who push you away the most? The people who give you every reason to not hold on to them? I'm sure I'm not. I feel like I'm surrounded by them. For some reason or another, the Universe has dropped these specimens of human… Continue reading xx Toxic xx
I mean, really though. I feel as though I have consistently been an avid recycler. (I try my best anyway) Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, am I right? The 3 R's that were instilled in us as children and carried on by most of us into our adulthood. However, I'm coming to realize that a lot of… Continue reading Why is it so Damn Hard to Recycle?
I realized that it's been a little longer than I would have liked since the last time I wrote, but that's Motherhood for you. The only things I can keep to a schedule are official appointments and even then I run a little late. This past weekend was a disconnect from all of that and… Continue reading Crickets
Today I shared my writing with my world of people. It was a high anxiety moment but I closed my eyes and clicked "share". I've been keeping it to myself, protecting it while it's in the infant stages and not allowing anyone to read it because I psyched myself out about others opinions. But I… Continue reading Out into the World!
When Estelle was six months old or so, Josh casually walked through our living room and said "I think I'm ready to think about our second child". We had discussed throughout our relationship that our second child would be adopted and I was surprised that he was ready so soon. I surely was not. The… Continue reading Our Foster Care Journey
May is Foster Care Awareness month! There is so much involved in foster care, so in honor of this month I am going to do my best to keep all of my posts related to the topic in some way or another. For day one, I'm going to start with the question I get all… Continue reading Foster Care Awareness Month
Today was S's first day of high school. It's her fourth first day of high school this year and the poor girl was shaking like a leaf all morning. Her previous high school had a graduating class of 13 students, the school in our area has a graduating class of over 300 students. I can't… Continue reading High School
