{From The Heart} On Crossing Lines

Four times in the last week I’ve come to this space with something I thought was important to say. Four times in the last week I’ve stopped myself before hitting publish. This space of mine is just that. A space I come for some free therapy. A space I come to when I want to [...]

{Behind The Scenes} Cape Cod With Friends & Family

Behind The Scenes

During our first beach vacation this summer we found ourselves in a very fun spot to be in- my brother in law, sister in law, & nephew were on the Cape as well as our dear friends. Before the trip, I worried too much about tiny things- I blame the connector in me. The littles [...]

{Five Minute Friday} Broken

I’m playing along today again with Lisa Jo Baker’s Five Minute Friday writing prompt. If you’ve never heard of it, it is a fun but challenging one. 5 minutes to write with no edits or looking back. Honestly, I hate this prompt today. I don’t want to go where I know it will take me. [...]

Christmas In July: 10 Things To Do Now

Christmas In July

Christmas Day is just a few months away. It is nice and warm out side, but I’ve got Christmas on my mind. Every December, I seem to get whistle bit both with my budget and my time. Never heard of the term whistle bit? It means working or scrambling to finish up past quitting time. Thank [...]

{Five Minute Friday} Belong

Belong. It’s what we all want right? To feel like we belong. To a family unit. To friends. In our community. In our world. A space where we feel connection. Without connection, can we belong? I don’t think so. So I go out of my way to make a connection. To give a smile, a [...]

{Five Minute Friday} Present

At the Beach

At 34 weeks pregnant my body is starting to really slow down. I just can’t keep the same pace I could a few weeks ago. Malone and I still go off on daily adventures but I find myself sitting on the sidelines more and more. I’m stuck in the middle of life. In a few [...]
