So Oprah has always talked about doing a daily gratitude journal and how much it has improved her life in so many ways.  I can see where it would be good to sit down at the  end of your day and jot down what you were grateful for that day.  It is a great reminder […]

Years ago I read a book called The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz.  One of the four agreements that he says you should make with yourself is “be impeccable with your word.”  I have been thinking about such things a lot lately.  I consider myself to be a busy woman with a lot on […]

I was buying groceries drinking my coke I had just bought at Chik-fil-a when Bree wanted a drink.  I reluctantly let her take a sip and told her she would have to drink her water.  She probably asked me 5 more times over the next 20 minutes and I finally explained that mommy’s drink was […]

I was just at Wal-Mart running through trying to get groceries with 2 babies.  I do it at least once a week and it is never easy but it usually goes well.  Today I had a buggy full and Dj got choked a bit (nothing serious) and it caused him to vomit and vomit and […]

I heard someone say this today and it sunk in pretty deep.  Being 36 weeks pregnant you don’t exactly fit the picture of beauty that the world has created.  Yes, some may see certain aspects of pregnancy as beautiful but only because of the sentimentality of it.  If I weren’t pregnant and 38 pounds heavier […]

When I was a little girl my Nana always had the most beautiful dishes and glasses. We ate from fine china at most meals, kids included. I remember eating chili from fine china on a regular basis. Of course, at the time I had no idea what I was eating from. Years ago Nana gave […]

I have been reading  a wonderful book by Elizabeth Gilbert lately.  She spent four months of her life devoted to experiencing pleasure.  Not only did she set out to experience real pleasure in her life but she chose to do so in Italy.  She is my kind of lady!  Who knows pleasure more than the […]

I have been very busy getting our house ready for the arrival of DJ, our sweet little boy that will be joining us sooner rather than later.  This time is a bit different than when we were expecting Bree.  With Bree I had nothing but time to do everything I wanted and then some, now […]
