We started potty training my 2 year old on Monday. And to say it has been a breeze would be a lie. We aren't doing any of the 3 day methods, though I love the idea. But our friends that we are currently staying with probably wouldn't be a fan of accidents on their nice… Continue reading Potty Training Day 3
I'm not a fan of New Year's Resolutions. I think that, in a lot of ways, they allot for excuses. Now, before I lose you, hear me out. Why wait until a whole New Year to make a change? I've made plenty of resolutions, anything ranging from health, to reading my Bible daily. They have… Continue reading I’m Not a Fan of New Year’s Resolutions
Yesterday morning, I was getting our daughter up for the day and ready for church. My husband was on his way home from the gym.

And she thanked me and told me I was beautiful, and wished me a good day. Honestly,… Continue reading A Little Kindness Goes a Long Way
Today I did something that I used to love, something that I haven't put effort into in a few years, especially post-partum. I plugged in my headphones, laced up my shoes, grabbed the dog and went for a run! Okay, it was more walking than running, but it felt good.

We made a trip to the library today, and what I thought would be a fun experience was not. The play area was overly crowded… Continue reading Toddlers are SO Embarrassing, but are SO Worth It!

I've recently gotten into a new hobby. Have you ever heard of Bible Journaling? It is somewhat like scrapbooking , but in your bible.
