HOW I Write Blog Posts as a Mom of Three

Mom Life is crazy. I knew that when I started this blog in 2015, a little over half a year into my journey of motherhood. Since then we’ve added too more little ones and while all three are precious, vital members of our family and we love them all so much… my husband and I have experienced a lot more chaos and a lot less free time with each kid we’ve added to our team.
So I thought it might be helpful to write a post about how I continue to write blog posts fairly regularly as a mom of three since I’ve had several readers (moms or not!) ask me about how the heck I manage to do that as well as a few more specific questions about my process. Continue reading

May Recap and June Goals

May was quite the whirlwind of a month. June is sure to be the same- so much so that I didn’t even have the time or brain power to add pictures to this post… but at least I got the writing done! Here’s a look at where my focus is in the chaos… Continue reading

April Recap and May Goals

OK, I know this post is a little later than usual, but I really wanted to put up my birthday post while those thoughts were fresh!

We also enjoyed every second of nice weather and mostly coped with the hotter spells… Here’s the rest of last month’s recap and a look at this month’s goals. Continue reading

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

It is time to start revealing the themes of the blog this year. I can’t believe this is going to be my SEVENTH year blogging (my first “alphabet year” of A I wasn’t writing about it) so we are on the letter H.

My first H is my “word of the year” even though it is technically a phrase… it is a little bit of Italian from Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati and the translation of it… Continue reading

GOOD READS- My Top 20 Books for 2020

2020- the year dominated by COVID 19 and social distancing… all that quarantining meant cancelling a lot of really lovely, emotional things: Family holidays, out of state trips, birthday parties, school events… heck even in person school and my son’s kindergarten graduation. I didn’t get to do SO many things I wanted to…. but at least I got a ton of reading done. Continue reading

November Wrap Up and December Tending List

Well, Here we are in December- the final month of 2020. Like so many others, I am praying that 2021 is a kinder, healthier, more joyful year. Part of me didn’t even want to set goals for this month, to say GOOD RIDDANCE 2020! and just hold out for the new year, but I decided I don’t want this holiday season to pass me by just because it can’t be the way I hoped so… here’s a recap of last month and a look at what I’m working on this month… Continue reading
