It's been a long, hard day. In fact, it's been a long, hard several days. Maybe even weeks. And when it gets like this, those small tender mercies can be hard to notice. Oh there's happiness mixed in between of course, but with Hubbalicious working such long hours at the shop because we're short-staffed right […] Read the whole post!
My dear friends, it's been too long. We've had family in town visiting, so things have been a little chaotic, but really nice. And even though, Hubbalicious' mother has gone home, we still have more friends coming this month so I don't see it slowing down for a little while yet. But still... we've been […] Read the whole post!
I can remember when my parents were 35. They were such young parents, and I always loved that because they took us all kinds of fun places, played outside with us, and most importantly, they could remember what it was like to be my age. You see, when my parents were 35, I was 17. […] Read the whole post!
I just want to start by saying how frustrated I've been that I haven't put a blog post up in a while. Things have been difficult with work and with just trying to keep my house together. I wish there were more hours in a day. :0) But the good news, is that I haven't […] Read the whole post!
Sure, when I started the #Cherish365 Project, it was mostly because I thought it sounded like fun, and like a great way to improve my photography skills. But I'm only a couple weeks in, (view my week 1 recap here) and already I'm seeing that it's turning into so much more than that. In the […] Read the whole post!
Don't you love the beginning of the new year when everybody is setting goals and starting new projects? I always find it so motivating and inspiring to read what other folks are up to. And one of the things that inspires me the most, is the 365 Photo Project. A photo a day for 365 […] Read the whole post!
Recently, I celebrated my 34th birthday. I know... it's crazy. How could someone so hip and fresh be in their 30's? That's what you're thinking right? No? Well, don't worry. You're not alone. It's recently come to my attention, that I might not be as hip as I had hoped. When you're young, you swear […] Read the whole post!
It's so crazy how time just keeps right on ticking. Happy or sad, healthy or sick, it gives no thought to our struggles and triumphs. 7 years ago, I was sitting in a hospital room receiving my final chemotherapy treatment and thinking about how much I'd been through over the course of the previous 9 […] Read the whole post!
I know it's been a while since I posted in our 30 Post Series: Things My Kids Should Know About Me. In fact, it feels like it's been a while since I've been able to really sit down and focus on my blog at all. I'm trying to strike a balance, but as I mentioned […] Read the whole post!
Why is it that when you are in your 30's, birthdays just don't seem to be as exciting? I find myself considerably less giddy about turning 33, than I was to turn - oh let's say...any other birthday? I'm not really sure what that's about. Maybe it's because every year that I get older, another […] Read the whole post!
