This is a fun one for me. I’m a clutter bug at heart and it drives me crazy. If my head and home are cluttered, I can't think straight and my focus is way off, but I’ve improved my odds against it over the course of the past year by becoming more organized and also by redirecting my focus towards things that I love to do.
I admire friends that get rid of things easily. I tend to focus more on the sentiment of an item and look for reasons to keep it. It’s a constant battle that I’m…Continue

Being a mother, though the most amazing gift in the world is not always the most glamorous! It is messy! The house needs to be cleaned, meals made, laundry done, kids chauffeur, etc. There are no red carpets, no amazing award shows, and no races requiring fancy hats! Let’s just say my son’s Boy Scout Pinewood derby is the fanciest derby I will be attending this year! Haha! So why dress up? Why wear jewelry? Why not just be comfortable? Why…Continue
As mothers we are always wondering if we are present enough in our children’s lives. Lately, I have actually pondered if it’s possible to be too present???
As a stay-at-home mother (who works from home), I take my “job” very seriously and put 110% into parenting my children (and my husband). I make sure I am involved in their school and know their teachers well, drop them off and pick them up every day, know who their friends are, invest the time to tailor…Continue

Letting go seemed as though it has been a major theme in my life this year. I had to let go of my daughter. She went away to college. I had to let go of my middle son. He went away to college. And I had to let go of my eldest son who transitioned from completing college to entering the workforce. Many people ask me, “How does it feel to know that all of your children are ‘grown’ and ‘gone’. I usually respond, “It feels different!”
Learning to let go can be difficult. For me, I thought…Continue

Those who divorce often experience hateful feelings towards their ex at some point, especially if their partners cheated. Obsessing about what happened as it all unraveled, replaying the disappointments, wounding and shocking betrayals–all leading to horrendous feelings of loss and loneliness. They…Continue

This week is a special week. Both of my boys are “graduating”, and while I’ve discussed the perverse nature of graduating from everything and anything now-a-days, I am,

& get caught up in all the hoopla.…
