    A Simple Ceremony

    I understand why people make a huge deal out of their wedding day. From the venue down to the shoes they will be wearing, it’s all about making their day special. But what if you’ve already had special days with your significant other, do you try to trump the rest with a huge wedding?  I’ve known for three years that I wanted to marry Jeff, but we’ve been busy living our lives with our boys to ever really think of it as “the next best thing.” To us, marriage is more of an icing on the cake. For me, it was always something I wanted for my future; a wedding…

    Live A Little, Love A Lot

    I think it goes without saying that loving yourself helps with learning to love others as well. And sometimes, you’re so concerned with others you forget there’s someone very important waiting for your attention — you.  Some say it’s selfish to think of yourself, while others think it’s perfectly normal.  I recently decided that for me to become a better version of myself I had to learn to appreciate me for who I am and work on the things that are out of my control. I’ve slowly been letting go of the drama and gossip that comes with being a stay-at-home mom. You know, the whole being concerned with other’s…

    Turning A Frown Upside Down

     My laptop is taking a break, and part of me was thinking of doing the same from my blog after a tiny incident that turned out to be huge.  Last week while having dinner with my little guy, I had this genius idea to take my computer to the dining table to work on upcoming blog posts and scheduling social posts. I think I got as far as opening up my computer before my son got a tantrum and pushed his cup of water out of his way and directly toward my laptop.  There were tears and lots of frustration. I did my best to bring it back to life, but…

    Loving All The Memories

    His happiness is my own. Moving to a different state with a six month old sounds like such a terrible idea, especially when you do not know much about where you are going to live. All I knew was we were going to rent a family member’s home and live fairly close to Jeff’s brother and his family. Oh, and that Costco was close to our home. That was all I knew. Fast forward to the memories we have created in a new state with new people. It brings a smile to my face whenever I think of the happiness we have found here in Florida. I know it seems like…

    Visiting Our Family

    Sometimes the best things in life are free… We kept talking about visiting our family up North, and now that we are back home, it feels as though the trip was all a dream. Our first stop was Orlando to visit my cousin and his family. We got there before noon and it was nice to spend time with his wife and kids while we waited for him to get home from work. It was the first time Jeff met my cousin and they pretty much bonded better than he and I have ever — weird, huh?  Although the kids were a little afraid of Rocky, they warmed up to him…
