“Twins?” The man graciously holding the elevator for me, two kids in tow, asks. I have a series of answers prepared for this oh-so-common question. “Nearly!” “(Irish) twins.” “Don’t worry, we just got cable.” “That might have been easier!” By the sheer number of questions and comments I get on Instagram about my children’s age … Continue reading 2 Under 2, It Takes A Village by Blakely Giordano
Being a mom is the hardest job in the world. Emotionally, physically, mentally.. It is HARD. Pregnancy is hard, labor and delivery are tough, and then you're given this perfect, tiny little human to take care of. There's not instructions, no guidebook, nothing. As an exhausted new mom, you're left to figure out everything on … Continue reading Mommin ain’t easy
Over the last few years I've seen through the media a variety of arguments on whether being a "Stay-at-Home" (SAHM) mom was "better" than being a "Working" mom. I've never gotten into it nor did I ever want to put my two cents into such an idiotic argument, because to be quite honest both are … Continue reading The Envious Mom
2016 has come and gone, for us it was bittersweet saying goodbye to a year that has tested us not only in our marriage but in our faith. Our son turned 3 in February, then in May we lost our home to the flooding, then the rain didn't seem to end and it ended up … Continue reading 2017…
My entire life, all I've wanted to be is a mom. If you asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I would say a mommy and a doctor! (I don't like school enough to be a doctor!) I always carried my baby Sarah around with me, she had her own car … Continue reading The High of Motherhood.

Then thinking of being blessed, reminds me of my little contest I had going on last month. … Continue reading Winner, Winner; Chicken Dinner!
Well, 2016 is nearing the end, as tomorrow will be December 1st. I'm not sure what it is about today but as I woke our son up to get ready for the day and he just sat there and said, "again mom?". I giggled and couldn't believe how much he's grown, how fast this year … Continue reading November 2016 Thoughts
Lately I have been doing blogs to help pass some time, as they do say, "time heals all wounds". While I've LOVED getting to share stories and get to know a lot of people around me and their stories, I've yet to actually let myself heal. So today, I am not blogging about others, I'm … Continue reading God Heals All Wounds
Mom's are the strongest people we know. They carry children in their wombs for 9 months, give birth (sometimes without medicine), raise those same children, juggle being a wife and worker (stay-at-home moms included), and still come home to do laundry and make dinner! They are the best jugglers and still keep their sanity. Jeana Francis … Continue reading Redefining Motherhood
