“This is How We Roll on Daddy’s Shift”

This is what my living room looked like when I came home from work the other night: “This is how we roll on Daddy’s shift,” was my husband’s proud explanation. As much as I wanted to come home from work to the kids tucked into bed so I could relax and not have to do … Continue reading

Cool cloud

I told my husband, “Take a picture of that cool cloud!” as we were driving down the highway. “What cool cloud?” He asks. The long one just above the horizon, of course! “You don’t notice that?” I ask him. “The sky is beautiful. You have to notice the beauty of the world. It’s one of … Continue reading

When you stop chasing the wrong things, you give the right things a chance to catch you

Keira’s Progress: Keira Turns One!

Yesterday was my baby Keira’s first birthday.

But from the moment she entered our lives, she has been the greatest joy, and we couldn’t imagine … Continue reading

Coffees and Creamers

November 2011 White Chocolate Raspberry International Delight Coffee Creamer Excellent. Even though it’s called “white chocolate raspberry,” to me it tastes like a raspberry-filled chocolate was picked out of a box of assorted chocolates and melted into your coffee. I’m impressed by this one!

Adrianna’s Quote of the Day: Playing Mommy (plus, Halloween pics)
