Day 3 of 40 days of reflection.

Somehow, my life has taken a different turn.  It’s rather like an amusement park ride full of twists and turns, than the peaceful, winding road that I had envisioned I’d be on.

Of course, that roller coaster ride began back in 2006.  The beginning of our pregnancy with the girls wasn’t an easy one.  […]

The purple nightgown.

It’s hot tonight.  So hot that even though we’ve got our thermostat turned way DOWN, the temp in our house is way UP.  Especially in our gorgeous master bedroom, complete with cathedral ceiling and accent window that creates a sort of ‘terrarium’ effect, if you will.  So, in order to sleep, I dig through […]

I had a moment. I felt them. It was real.

Tonight, at the end of my training session, we did some meditation work.  We were concentrating on our breathing and I was finding it difficult to shake other thoughts from my head.  Things like…

I can’t believe Nicholas is four.  I wish I would have done <insert x, y or z here> with him.


Five. Warning – not an upbeat post.

Five had always been a favorite number of mine.  I would pick it to use as my number when I played sports in school, whenever I could.  This year, it’s not so much a favorite.

You see, five years ago today, at this time, I was enjoying a dinner/interview with a former coworker.  We […]

Entering a new demographic category!

Tomorrow I turn 35…some days I can hardly believe it, and then others…phew!  I look in the mirror and wonder if I’m not older!  I always said I’d never get plastic surgery but I’m not so sure now!

This year has been a WHIRLWIND!

At this time last year…I was still wondering if I […]

One more day…reminder for busy moms

I’ve had this posted on my blog for the last couple of years, and today it really hit home.

*This morning, I am going to step over the laundry, and pick you up and take you to the park to play.

*I will leave the dishes in the sink, and let you teach me […]

Fall is almost here? Where did summer go?

We had a fantastic summer.  I was so busy with the boys.  Last summer, it was difficult for me, having a new baby and a toddler, but this summer, we made the most of it!


We went on lots of playdates! Nicholas had gymnastics class at Bounce for 10 weeks! Christopher learned to […]

Four Years Ago…Today | Life Changed

Four years ago today, our world changed as we knew it.

Married less than a year, blissfully pregnant with twins.  Settling in for the evening when all of a sudden… in the blink of an eye…we found ourselves facing a new ‘normal’.

We had to call 911 (for the first, and hopefully ONLY time […]

Four years ago this month…

I was blissfully pregnant.  I was in my 2nd trimester, enjoying being pg with twins.

Around this time was when I first started feeling the girls, but didn’t realize it was them.  I remember it feeling like ‘the gurglies’ or little bubbles inside of me.

I know that people can’t believe that I still […]

Happy Father’s Day!

To my wonderful hubby, Nick!  We all love you SO much!!
