As the new baby dust settles I find I have a tad more time to write my blog. Having two is like increasing your child quotient exponentially. Really, it’s like having 4 especially at the beginning. Even in these first few months I have noticed a distinct sibling pattern emerge between my girls. Thankfully Miss [...]

I have a theory that the world is a place of light and the dark only exists to remind us of what an abundantly beautiful world we live in.

In the home stretch of pregnancy, I am finding it harder and harder to feel passionate about much beyond nesting, sleeping, and finding the perfect chocolate covered cashew.

Like every teenage girl filled with so many thoughts and feelings I didn’t know what to do with them, I started a journal. This served not only to record all my innermost thoughts and feelings, hopes, secrets and wishes for the future , it also made me feel like I was recording my life and [...]

  One of my observations as a new parent is that when children want something, they want it NOW! Not in a few minutes, not after Mommy ties her shoelace/finishes her meal/goes to the bathroom but right this very instant.
