How Does A White Mom Teach Her Black Son About Martin Luther King, Jr?

5 years ago, when Hubbalicious and I decided to embark upon an adoption journey, we had no idea what our future held. We knew we wanted a family, but that’s about as far as it went. Boy, Girl, Black, White, Smurf, California Raisin… we didn’t even care enough to put thought into it. All we […] Read the whole post!

Our Christmas Traditions

Can you believe another Christmas has come and gone! I swear, every year feels shorter than the last. When I mentioned this to my uncle a couple days ago, he made a good point. He said, “Oh you just wait…”  His theory is that they will continue to feel shorter and shorter because with every […] Read the whole post!

Looking Forward To Our Family Vacation At The Beach!

  First thing’s first… let’s address some very sad news. It’s official y’all. My hard drive is DEAD and they can’t retrieve ANY data off of it. I know this shouldn’t come as such a surprise… but I really thought that they’d be able to get my photos. I mean, how many tv shows have […] Read the whole post!

Allowing My Blog To Breathe On Its Own

I’ve been writing this post in my head for a few weeks now, but haven’t been quite ready to put it down on paper (or whatever you call it when you don’t put stuff down on paper anymore).

Are you having a good weekend? I totally am. It’s always fun when the weekend rolls around because it means time to do the things you really enjoy. The things that make you happy. For me this includes quality time with the family, blogging, crafting, being outside. Last weekend we went on a bike ride with […] Read the whole post!

Having An Only Child

Over the course of the year and a half that I’ve been blogging, I have noticed a couple recurring themes within my posts. One of the most common, is that my life has taken me on a completely different path than I ever could have expected. In many ways, it’s been incredibly difficult. And in just […] Read More

How I Taught My Son About His Adoption

When I was young, and dreaming of my someday family – adoption was not in the forefront of my mind. I always admired the concept, but to me it was just so … exotic. It didn’t seem like something you could actually do. And of course, it never crossed my mind that I might not […] Read the whole post!

Making Foil Boats With Your Preschooler

There’s nothing I love more than summer time with my family. Being outside, enjoying the weather… it’s just a feel-good time of year. It seems like we’ve been moving for like, I don’t know… EVER. So it felt pretty nice this past weekend to just kick back and relax. Our little Dom loves to play […] Read the whole post!

10 Things I Never Thought I’d Have To Say

When it comes to parenting, I’m constantly amazed at the things that come out of my mouth. Nothing surprises me anymore. Once upon a time, hearing myself say the sentence: “Dominic, please don’t eat whatever bug you just picked up” would surprise me and kinda make me chuckle. I remember the first time I said that, thinking… […] Read the whole post!

Do Opposites Attract In Marriage?

I like to shower in the dark. Do you think that’s weird? Hubbalicious thinks it’s weird. Inevitably, whenever I’m enjoying a nice peaceful shower with the lights out, he walks in and makes fun of me for this weird, quirky thing that I do. I mean, it’s not like it’s pitch black, I have a […] Read the whole post!
