Month: June 2017

Friday Five, vol. 6

Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea culpa. I realize I have been delinquent in my Friday Fives. So, maybe, this will be a more random thing. Who knows? We’re growing. We’re evolving. Gotta stay on our toes, ya know. OK, so in no particular order… #1. […]

Grace in the Rain

Grace in the Rain

I don’t know about you, but I can go for months at a time with life on cruise control. That doesn’t mean that things aren’t happening or that we are all just sitting around and staring at each other all day. No, I just mean […]

Works of Mercy & Multi-packs of Undies

Works of Mercy & Multi-packs of Undies

June feels a little early to be worrying about back-to-school shopping, doesn’t it? You’re just settling into a good summer routine and the kids are growing like weeds. That summer rain and sunshine and copious amounts of chlorine are working in their systems and each […]

#Thisis40

#Thisis40

Today, I am 40 years old. Holy crap. How in the world did that happen, I ask you? Wasn’t I just traipsing across the stage as Dorothy in my high school’s production of Wizard of Oz? No? Right. That was 23 years ago. Maybe it […]

The Morning They All Grew and Changed

Have you ever experienced that when your kids get up in the morning and it’s like they are bigger than they were the night before? Sometimes along this journey of motherhood I am honestly shocked by the ways my kids have grown and changed.  When […]

The Wonder of Wonder Woman

The Wonder of Wonder Woman

True confessions… I am not a huge fan of superhero movies.  In fact, unless it can’t be helped (i.e., a teenage boy is sick and is binge-watching Avengers in the family room), I pretty much avoid them like the plague. Enter Gal Gadot and Patty […]

Success and the Small Things

Success and the Small Things

“It’s hard to grasp, you know?  I am almost 40 years old and I will never be this world’s version of successful.” With those words, my eyes filled with tears.  Greg just took my hand and let me collect myself for a minute. We were […]

Friday Five, vol. 5

Friday Five, vol. 5

It’s that time again!  Time for a glimpse into our crazy family for a roundup of some Instagram-ness from the last week.  It was dance-recital-palooza last weekend, so I really could’ve posted about a hundred pictures from that, but I’ll spare you.  Here goes!   […]

So, You’re Getting Your First Mammogram…

So, You’re Getting Your First Mammogram…

The time has come.  You’re turning 40.  Or your family history has you pegged as high risk.  Or maybe, God forbid, you have found a lump.  And the next thing you know, the imaging center is calling you to schedule your very first mammogram. And […]
