I say it all the time, but I like to be busy.  I am a high energy person. I don't know if it's my nature, as Becky says, or if it's from a childhood of constantly being on the go and it gives me comfort.  But as 2020 got rolling, I felt like I hit a brick wall and just...

As Becky and I approached the topic of traditions for our podcast a few weeks ago, my attitude going into the recording was ‘it’s time to break old traditions and start new ones!” Over the past years, since becoming a parent, I had the desire to start new traditions an...

Shortly after having my 3rd child, I found myself on my hands and knees one morning at 6:00 am on the floor of my dining room, cleaning up dog pee (from one of our 3 old dogs) and just being so mad at my life, that I just started crying.  It just seemed that I spent da...

I was recently fortunately enough to be on a retreat in Aruba.  On the first day, we all drew Angel cards, meant to inspire us to create an intention for the week that we were there.  I drew the “Pregnancy” card.  Needless to say, my first instinct was to throw the car...

When it comes to vacations, we all know that going on a vacation with kids is not a vacation at all!  Its usually more work!  I have had some vacations where I feel stress and overwhelmed and find my self not enjoying this precious time with my family.
