{Road Trip} Madison County Iowa 

This post is a little late. Life always gets in the way. I have been busy moving and enjoying life.  Anyways, my Mama absolutely loves the movie Bridges of Madison County. Clint Eastwood gets her all steamy – she is totally a huge fan, she’s seen like every Clint Eastwood movie known to man. So … Continue reading

{Sophia} Be A Light

Dear Sophia, Auntie was hoping that she would get to share and explain a historic moment to you. You are four and at four you have no idea how close women came to shattering the highest glass ceiling of all. We lost my dear, we lost, our girl Hillary lost. America was not ready for … Continue reading

{Election 2016} Your Voice Is Not Lost

For some it’s just an election. For some it’s a chance to make a choice and to shape our country. For some it is our duty to vote while others say “ahh someone else will do it so I don’t have to.”  I know it’s over. The media keeps telling me that. I know it’s … Continue reading

{Walmart* Beauty Box} Fall 2016 

Ahhh it’s finally fall! Which means any thing and everything is coming up pumpkin spice. Which is not ok in my book I LOVE fall but despises pumpkin spice anything. Pumpkins are for carving, not eating. Any hoo….. the Minnesota air is getting crisp, the trees are starting to show there colors, and my skin … Continue reading

{BirchBox} REVIVE AND RESTORE

“This month we’re slowing down, getting cozy, and bringing you rejuvenating products to make the most of your you-time.” You time? I can have you time? I am a busy girl so I do not get to squeeze in to many moments of “you time.” But when I do, I do it well. It’s fall … Continue reading

{Hearts On 22} Hello, Borrowed Year #7 

Survivorhood is messy. You have your amazing days right along with your down right awful days. Sometimes I wish I had a guide book or that someone would have told me “it won’t be perfect, but you will do alright.” No two survivors are alike and each story is dffierent from the next, no one … Continue reading

{Engaged Life} Boxes in a new zip code

Life moves on.  My zip code has moved too. I hung up my single uptown girl shoes, only to put on a comfortable pair of committed relationship shoes. It took almost 6 years but I have finally found my zen, my happy, and that happy is a townhome in the suburbs. I know, I know … Continue reading

{Lucia & Baby E} Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month 

October is many things. For me it’s my birthday month and more importantly it’s where my second story began. I get lost in the details, counting days, writing posts, and reflecting on the year before me. No one ever said survivorhood would be easy. No one ever said “not all babies get to come home.”  … Continue reading

{Road Trip} Wisconsin Point 

I have a long standing love affair with Lake Superior. For me it’s not just a lake, it’s a part of my soul and the story of how my family began. My extremely great grandfather Basile Hudane Beaulieu was a voyager who sailed the Great Lakes and landed on the shores of what we now … Continue reading

{Life Lessons} “I Am So Pretty!” 

Shopping with a four year old is to much fun. I taught Sophia that her size is 5T and if she likes something she needs to find a 5T. It took her only a few minutes to find two dresses and then Auntie helped her find a coordinating pair of leggings for each dress.  Like … Continue reading
