A divided home is a happy home

It's true, and I'll say it again, A Divided Home is a Happy Home.



Remember awhile back when I talked about cheap therapy, and then I ranted and raved about marriage and family therapist, Shelby Riley? (If you're new, you can read it here) Well, I decided to put into practice one of her e-books, 10 Weeks to Increased Intimacy and Connection.



It was… Continue

We are more

Do you ever feel that you've lost yourself? You've lost the person that you were before you had kids? That those dreams and hopes and hobbies are kind of pushed to the side. Or to the back, or that they've disappeared?



Why does that happen?



It's not good. Not good at all.



I believe our children need to see that we are people too. They need to see that we have dreams, and they especially need to see that we are taking steps to make those dreams come… Continue

And then what did you think?

Taylor's favorite phrase to say to me, is: "And then what did you think?" Well that, and the phrase: "No Mom, I don't want to do that right now. Here's the plan, I'll do what I want to do first and then I'll do what you want me to do. Okay Mom?"



Which brings me to my first point.



I used to think I was patient until I had kids. But now...



Well, I find it's my struggle every single day. I have to BREATHE. Sometimes very… Continue

An Optimistic Look

I wanted to share this dream that my friend Bethany had a couple of years ago. It seems like a lot of people I know and love are going through some really hard times right now. And this story keeps coming to mind. It has meant so much to me time and time again, and I hold on to the image every time life gets hard.…

The One That Got Away

The one that got away....



Oh, in my story there are many. I was never a long timer in relationships. I think my longest was a year, and whew, that seemed like an eternity. I always tease Jimmy that he is my longest relationship.



I have the story that I think most girls have.



I've definitely had my heart broken. I've been hurt, lied to, misunderstood, unforgiven, broken up with for no reason, strung along...even cheated on by two different guys who I honestly… Continue

Breaking Up is Hard to Do

Breaking up is hard to do. Especially when you've done it several times with the same person...over and over again. But, this time, I'm done. I'm really really done. It. Is. Over.



And this time, it's you...all you, it's so not me.







The Bachelor, I'm sorry. It's just not working out anymore. My emotions, fragile as they already are,… Continue

Rebel With(out) a Cause?

I am so not perfect. Um...just in case any of you thought otherwise.



You see, I have this rebelliousness issue. Ask my mom. Ask my best friends. Especially ask my husband.



It's mostly that I tend to rebel against the status quo. I can't stand "typical," and I strive to be anything but. I just always have. And I think it would take years of deep (costly) therapy to find the underlying reasons why.



I also hate being told how to be, what to do, and how things… Continue

Perfection isn't Normal

*Don't forget to vote in the poll over there on the top right!*
I can't tell you how much better I feel now that I have been honest about not being perfect.



It's a huge weight lifted off my shoulders.



It was a tough role to pull off, that perfection thing, and as great as I am at being an… Continue

Humility = Parenting

*To enter the Skin Care Giveaway, click here. Contest ends on Saturday, winner announced on Sunday.*



There are days I love and adore my kids. And then there are days I envy those I know who are childless.



But, one thing I've learned from being a mother, is that I am indeed humbled. If ever I thought I was on top of my game, it only took having children to teach me otherwise.



Humility,… Continue
