Mom life, am I right? Exhausting, fulfilling, draining. It’s an entire laundry list of opposites and juxtapositions. I’m lucky enough to have stayed at home with my kids since Gabriel was four months old. He’s almost 12 now. I’m also the first to tell you that I am an absolutely terrible housewife. Here’s what a […]
We’ve been in our home for almost 5 years. When we purchased it, it was brand spanking new but at the time we bought it all finishes were picked and installed. That means we didn’t get to customize it at all. No big, they chose pretty neutral finishes, a weird seaglass kitchen backsplash, and a […]
They say with age comes wisdom. While I don’t disagree I also can’t profess to be an expert on anything. Literally, nothing. There are things I’m better than average at, sure. Things I’m not the worst at, but definitely don’t feel as though aging has brought about endless fountains of knowledge and wisdom. There are […]

It was her 30th birthday which means Kristy should be about to turn 42. We would have definitely had a big black over the hill party, obviously when she turned […]
Some people make New Year’s Resolutions. Some people don’t. I don’t like to make a promise I can’t keep so I choose a word to get me through the year. I’m not just talking blog posts, but that’s definitely an aspect that’ll be included. I mean nutritionally, physically, spiritually and even in my housekeeping. I […]
It’s been a year of health related experiences and now I’m going ot shift my focus to bringing fitness back.
Music can inspire. It can help you write that book, or that blog post, or that essay. It can pump you up to finish that workout, or go that extra mile or hell even that FIRST mile. (Seriously Jay-Z Run This Town was my JAM when I was learning how to run.) It can bring you in touch with emotion or help you through a difficult time in your life.
