{2016} Life Found Its Way In 

2016 was about learning to let go of my single girl shoes so that I could walk comfortably in my relationship shoes. I no longer buy groceries for one, I actually buy vegetables and things that I have no intention of eating but I know Jay will. It’s about yelling “Cully stop trying to hump … Continue reading

{Cora} Amber Yellow 

It’s no secret that I have a Pioneer Woman Collection addiction. After I put Cully’s food in my cart I find myself drifting over to the homegoods in Walmart. I know exactly which isles hold the quirky magical and brightly colored items of the Pioneer Woman’s collection. I have everything from the measuring spoons, to … Continue reading

{Christmas} With Angels 

Christmas has and will always be my favorite time of year. There is magic in the air and in your heart you know anything is possible. People are kinder to one another and for a little while all is right.  In the stillness my mind drifts to the land of wonder, the place where what … Continue reading

{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
