Hope this week’s been a great one – Spring has finally sprung here in Maryland (er, should I say Summer – hello 93 degrees?!) which means it’s sandal weather! Which also brings me to […]

Favorite Things Friday #22

Whew. It has been A WEEK, my friends! It’s been a nice little Spring break here, and now the kiddos are back in school and life is getting back to crazy. 😉 Last week (and this one!) has been crazy emotional, as Holy Week tends to be for me. Everything about it just moves me […]

Favorite Things Friday #16

It’s been a rough couple days for all of us, I know. I always struggle at times like this to talk about light topics, when so many hearts are broken. And I hate that I actually used the word ‘always,’ because that means it’s happened far too many times. But one of my friends said […]

Why We All Should Watch This Is Us

Gah. You guys. It’s the morning after the Superbowl, and if you’re a This Is Us fan, you know what also happened last night. I’ll try my very hardest not to spoil anything in this post, but I’m guessing most of you have heard about this epic episode, even if you don’t watch. And if […]

I’ve wanted to go every year, but there’s always been […]

June 2017 Roundup!

Wow, feels like it’s been FOREVER since I’ve done a round-up post…not sure why?! When I realized it’s the last day of June today, I thought maybe I should bring the round-up posts back. I mean, we’re all busy people living our busy lives and I’m sure you don’t check this page every day…or every week…or […]

Another Chapter Begins…

I caught a glimpse of you this morning. You were standing outside, waiting for the bus a few minutes early. Just like me, you woke up early with anticipation for today and had time to spare. It’s what we do. You had a bag with your sweater – in case you get chilly – and […]

Thoughts on Spring Cleaning, Simplicity, and Not Wanting a Bigger House.

So it appears that Spring has sprung early in Maryland this year. We had the windows open with temps in the 70s this past weekend, and the seven day forecast shows much of the same. And as a result, I have been going a little overboard with Spring cleaning – particularly de-cluttering. So much so […]
