Not Everyone Gets A Trophy

“We will begin working on delayed gratification in a few weeks”, my 3 year old’s teacher told me. I laughed our loud thinking she actually needs to teach more than just my 3 year old delayed gratification. We live in a world where we get what we want, when we want and now kids are […]

Pull Your Own Happiness Wagon

You just got a new haircut (outfit, promotion at work, etc.) and you proudly walk around the next day waiting for all the positive, praise-filled comments.  Then…they never come.  Your husband, family members, or co-workers don’t seem to notice your drastic change or accomplishment at all.  Cue the negative self-talk and second guessing.   It’s […]

The camp provided more than just the chance to play in the awesome space that is the Amazeum. The children were encouraged to be creative, inventive, and to make new discoveries.   During his week […]

9 Minute Makeup

I want to share a simple, quick, and effortless makeup routine that can have you looking like you slept all night in just nine minutes.  My favorite way to quickly cover any blemishes or dark spots is a full coverage CC cream that has skin loving ingredients and sunscreen built right in.

The Ode to the Angry Mom

You woke up from a night of haphazard sleep. There was no hesitation in your toddler’s voice as he demanded breakfast, and then threw a fit as you made eggs instead of a PB&J. Your baby clawed at your legs and cried as you quickly put breakfast on the table. It was too hot. The […]
