It took me over two hours to clean out my fridge and freezer last week. I do not want to talk about the level of disgusting that was going on in there.  After I emptied every drawer and threw away unrecognizable leftovers, I went to the grocery store for the first time in months. I would run into the store for a loaf of bread, milk or a...

I cook a lot, and for the last few years, I have been wanting to upgrade my old recipe box to a binder. The binder has page protectors with two slots for cards and flipping through the binder is so much easier than digging through a recipe box. Last week I finally got around to ordering one and the day it came in the mail I spent about an hour...

  I told y’all last week about how my whole life has been on hold as I finish my next book. It’s been hard to juggle everything that needs to get done: buying groceries, cooking meals, car pool, gymnastics, writing, cleaning the house, making eye contact with my family members— but I’ve been doing the best I can....

Zeb used his remaing vacation days for the year to be at home with us and built the girls the most amazing sets of bunk beds I have ever seen. If you follow me on Facebook...

  It happens to me on a regular basis. I push my cart into the grocery store, bribing my 4-year-old with my iPhone to sit in the seat. I chat with her as I wander through the produce trying to find a banana that is not the same color as the limes and I will bump into a Mommy acquaintance. We are both a mess wearing faded out yoga pants...

  I have written hundreds of words over the years of my affinity for profanity. I am not saying it is my finest attribute, but there are times when in lieu of saying, “Gosh darn it all to heck fire!” I use one word that totally encapsulates the way I feel in that moment. Journalists call that an “economy of words....

  As I was thinking about my New Year’s article, I came across a blog post by one of my favorite author/bloggers, Jen Hatmaker. It was her New Years’ post from 2011. She wrote about how she adores all of the end of year lists that pop up online around this time of year. So she made her own list… of her Top 5 Quirks. I...

  “The Herdmans were the worst kids in the whole history of the world. They lied, stole and smoked cigars… even the girls.” Those first few lines were spoken clearly by a young actress as she stepped into the spotlight to begin the Greenwood Little Theater rendition of “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever.”...
