I looked at the calendar today, and if it wasn’t for a Google repeated reminder my husband set years ago, it may not have been on my radar. It’s our 11 year anniversary this coming Saturday. I’m not sure if it’s because we’ve celebrated a few times over the course of the past few years … More I’m not where I thought I’d be 11 years into my marriage.
It’s been ten years. Yes, I am proud of how far we’ve come, but I’m also frightened. There is so much that has changed that I never knew it would, or could, for both positive and negative. We are an amazing parental unit. We support each other, in discipline and otherwise, and we are usually … More What happened to the marriage I thought I’d have
Every now and again, there is something that makes you happy, makes you smile. You try to make those moments last forever. Many times, I find myself just looking wistfully at my kids, until they snap me out of it with a cute smile and a “what, momma?” It makes you happy to just look … More Wowed.

I have this problem that has plagued me ever since I was diagnosed with depression. I avoid things. I don’t honestly know why. I thought that maybe I really didn’t want to deal with the social capacity of things. Or maybe I just didn’t want to deal with the organization of it all. Case en … More The mildly introverted extrovert
How can you tell your significant other what you want without sounding like you are nagging? I mean, honestly, I don’t have a great answer for this. Relationships are tricky, even though you may feel as though they shouldn’t be. 10 years into my marriage, I feel like it’s still a balance. It’s not always … More What I wish my husband did more of
I have been playing with the idea of going to see a medium ever since I was pregnant with my second visiting my good friend in San Francisco. We happened to go into a “really cool store” that she liked, and while we were there, I saw the man who ran the store. I immediately … More Finding peace where I least expected it
As parents, we are constantly trying to protect our kids from everything in the world that will hurt them. We buckle them and double-check their seatbelts are on correctly. We make sure they have helmets on when they are riding bikes. We teach them how to look both ways before they cross the street. We … More When safe isn’t safe enough
Okay, so I am only about 3 months into having 3 kids, and I have to admit, I have already noticed a difference in myself. It might sound weird, but I didn’t feel this way with two. Here are some things I noticed so far. -I have learned to let things go more. Before, when … More 3 Kids Can Really Change You
