Food and Kids

To be fair my kids are not very picky and are, for the most part, pretty good eaters. However that doesn't mean I don't struggle with deciding what to feed them. I think my biggest struggle is what I can feed them fast and easy, because I don't know about you but in our house …

Self Care

  How often do we schedule in time for ourselves?  I know when I most need it is when we are busiest and that is when it is hardest for me to choose myself over all the other things that I need to get done.  However as a family we are working very hard to …

I Promise …

Today marks Auntie Mona's 53rd Birthday, and September 15th marked the 6th Anniversary of the day she passed away.  Now my Aunt was more than an Aunt to myself and my two sisters.  She was my Moms only sister and she was our second Mom. We grew up with a single Mom who worked full …

Finding Balance Amongst Chaos

September 22, how is this possible.  I don't know about you but this month has literally flown by for us and I feel like we are working so hard at fitting everything into the schedule...  but in reality that doesn't really line up with one of my biggest values which is BALANCE!   Balance to …

Beginning of a new Decade…

First I need to say HAPPY 30th BIRTHDAY to my youngest sister KP!  Now I couldn't think of a better way to wish her Happy Birthday than to write about it on the blog, my sister may not agree but I hope she likes it (better to beg forgiveness than to ask for permission)!   …

“We take photos as a return ticket to a moment otherwise gone.”

 So today was a big day, it was our first "photo shoot" as a family of 5.  It's true Eleanor has past the 4 month mark and I am just getting to have family pictures taken.   It's funny how you change with each child and document them differently or maybe only I do …

In My Spare Time

 I sometimes think about when I had time and read a lot, I especially think about it when I am packing for vacation.  Pre-kids I couldn't pack enough books.  I loved to just sit in the sun, relax and read.  I now know that with 3 very little ones reading is a luxury and …
