Recipe For Balance

It’s been eight weeks now since we welcomed our new little one. While part of me is excited to be working more again, the other part of me says to take it slow and continue enjoying these lazy summer days while they’re here. I yearn for more mornings in my recliner, snuggling with both of my […]

We welcomed a baby boy on June 7th! Meet Roric Daniel. He was 7 lbs 6 oz and 20.5” – a complete bundle of joy with plenty of dark hair! He looks quite a bit like big brother but still has features all his own. We are in love and I could stare at him […]

Counting Down The Days & Cherishing Little Moments

Counting Down The Days & Cherishing Little Moments

Here we are just counting down the days. I’m still not convinced this baby is going to wait until June 9th to make his/her appearance.

Tomato Soup: Homemade & Freezer Friendly

Tomato Soup: Homemade & Freezer Friendly

Tomato soup and grilled cheese is a personal go-to of mine during Lent. This year I decided to opt out of buying pre-made, canned soups and try my hand at a hearty homemade tomato soup. Don’t get me wrong, we eat canned soup from time to time and I have nothing against it! I just […]

Life Lately: Back On Track

I’m writing this as I sit at my son’s kitchen play set watching Curious George. This tiny chair sits about eight inches off the floor, and let me tell you, it’s getting harder and harder for this pregnant mama to get back up! But he asked me to sit with him this morning and have […]

Fast From Complaints

Fast From Complaints

Happy March! Lent began yesterday and I decided this year I would give up complaining as one of my “sacrifices.” No, I don’t consider myself a “complainer” and honestly most of the time I’m that annoying optimistic type. Glass = half-full! 🙂 I just felt like it would be a good way to really listen to […]
