Embracing Serenity:  How to Slow Down in Life?

Embracing Serenity: How to Slow Down in Life?

May 23, 2024 | 12:06pm
Was life always this hectic, or were things genuinely slower when we were kids and our parents were navigating their days? I feel like I can’t keep up. I love work, I’m lucky that way. I absolutely love my job, especially in the summer when there is so many events, festivals, and fun things to […]
May Long Camping Trip!

May Long Camping Trip!

May 22, 2024 | 12:54pm
Just got back from our first camping trip in our camper over the May long weekend and it was an experience to remember! Last summer we went camping in a tent and while it was fun, my husband swore he would never do it again. I didn’t think it was that bad. We were all […]
How Was Your Mother’s Day?

How Was Your Mother’s Day?

May 13, 2024 | 4:58pm
When my kiddos asked me what I wanted for Mother’s Day this year, I said, “A whole family laundry time! No fighting (between the 6 year old and the 3 year old) and an hour just for mom all alone.” Laundry time kind of worked, but not really. (We are talking Dad and Mom folding […]
Sisters!

Sisters!

May 10, 2024 | 8:42am
Here’s a little something about me that not many people know. I have a bunch of sisters – not just one or two, but a total of 3 beautiful women in my life. Among them, two are older and one is younger, and they are not just family but my absolute besties. It’s a rare […]

New Crayons!

May 7, 2024 | 7:24pm
Can we just take a moment to appreciate the simple joy that comes with a brand new box of crayons? I don’t know about you, but there’s something about those perfectly pointed crayons that just makes me want to unleash my inner artist and start coloring everything in sight. Even at 38 years old, I […]

The 26th Annual Prairie Wildfire Taekwondo Challenge!

I was able to experience something brand new this past weekend! My kiddos are in taekwondo. My 3 year old and I participate in the parent and tots class which is so adorable! My 6 year old has been in it for about 2 years now, and it’s so exciting watching him learn a new […]
Spring on the Prairies

Spring on the Prairies

Apr 18, 2024 | 12:34pm
“Mom, why did it snow after winter?” That was the question from my 6 year old this morning when he looked out the window. Poor sweet summer child. He’s still learning that winter on the prairies comes again, and again, and again. And even when you think it’s all done for the season, it hits […]
They Grow Up Too Fast

They Grow Up Too Fast

Apr 15, 2024 | 12:34pm
It goes too fast. Every cliché thing you hear parents say, is all true. The days are so intense and long, but the years fly by way too quickly. I remember teaching my 6 year old how to ride his balance bike, which feels like just yesterday. But now his 3 year old brother is […]
