I have been wanting to post so many things over the last week: – why we’re addicted to drama – reclaiming kids (we added one in last week) – talk a little about beauty and why it’s so hard to wrap our head around our own – carbon monoxide poisoning – adrenal fatigue and the […]

Reclaiming FMF : {Welcome}

I let FMF (five minute friday) go for awhile. When I started the October 31 day challenge it just didn’t fit in with what I was writing at the time and I didn’t want to interupt the flow of the book I was posting (click on the Alphabet Soup tab if you’re wondering what I’m […]

To Be Continued…

Due to my son’s birthday (family celebration today), returning from a weekend away to find my house had been handled by teenagers (read – disaster area), being trapped by a set of press-on fingernails (I CANNOT type in those things), a new baby in the family (I’m a great-aunt!!), and wanting to end this story […]

Behind the Scenes: The Scary Movie Girl

I love this picture. My daughter is on the far right, the one with the ‘scary movie’ look on her face and her two best friends.  It was her birthday. It was supposed to look like this: 1. They were all going to wear their ‘leather’ jackets. (check) 2. We would have a stunning photo […]
