Celebrating Their Life – Pregnancy Loss Awareness

Celebrating Their Life - Pregnancy Loss Awareness

I have tried to write this post for quite a while, but the timing did not seem right.  I have written in my journal about it, but those pages are much to raw and sad for everyone to read.  I never understood the journey once a woman loses a baby.  I was always sad for […]

Time to Take Care of You – Special Needs Mom Support!

Time to Take Care of You - Special Needs Mom Support!

When I signed up to be a mom I dreamed it would be magical and everything lovely. It was magical, but also very rough. My first baby, a boy named Tristan was born unhealthy and I struggled to keep him alive his first year of life. You can read more here about my son at […]

Special Needs Mommy Meltdown

Special Needs Mommy Meltdown

Being a special needs parent is hard physically, emotionally, and it is draining.  Being that we are a military family and move a lot we do not have the support of close family or friends, so a majority of my son’s care has fallen on my shoulders. Sometimes I will admit I wish I was […]

Work Hard to Dream Big

Gift of Life

A few days ago on my personal Facebook timeline I shared something very personal.  I was at my computer and happened to look at the date and the time.  I realized it was the anniversary to my near death experience.  I always get a bit emotional on this day because I really feel I was […]

One Big Family

My P90X3 Journey

My P90X3 Journey

My entire life I have struggled with how my body looked.  I was never fat growing up, but I was also not thin.  You could say I was “thick.”  I remember vividly being 18 years old in a JC Penny’s changing room sobbing as I sat in the corner against the blue striped wall.  My […]

Positivity in a Jar

Positivity in a Jar

I saw a photo floating around Facebook last week where people write down the positives in their lives and put them away in a mason canning jar.  These notes are then read at the end of the year.  I loved the idea, but I decided I wanted to do a “kid friendly” version. Teaching my […]

My Journey Out of Darkness

Out of Darkness

Thank you all for your overwhelming support of my recently popular post on how to clean my truck’s upholstered seats.  Many of you e-mail me and ask why I have not posted in several months.  Others continually ask me to please come back and blog, because they love what I share.  Well, you asked for it […]

35 Things About Me on My 35th Birthday!

35 Things About Me on My 35th Birthday!

Yep two birthdays right in a row.  I made sure last year to walk my baby out before it was the 6th of December because no mom should have to share her birthday, let alone their child.  I thought it might be fun to tell you 35 things about me, as a way to get […]
