Weight a Minute!

I’ve always struggled with my weight/body image/confidence growing up. The LAST thing I want to show my son, and especially my daughter, is that you have to wait until you’re a certain weight or in a certain career to feel, look and act beautiful.

Kids in the Kitchen: Make Dinner & Teach Math, Reading, and Science at the Same Time

I have distinct memories of whenever my mother baked or cooked during my childhood always having a chair pulled over to the end of our kitchen counter.

One Isn’t the Loneliest Number: Why I’m “One and Done”

I remember the day that I had my daughter like it was yesterday. The simultaneous feeling of having been hit by a truck and the complete and utter joy was one I could never forget. That day, as well-wishing family members came to visit, there were lots of comments that included, “When you have your next […]

Let’s Love on Legos

Let’s love on Legos (or any other brand of building blocks). For just a moment. Because they’re awesome for so many reasons. Granted, my kitchen table hasn’t been MY table in quite some time.
