Since moving back from Montana, it has been easy to grumble about the heat, the lack of fall color, the heat, the scorpions, and the heat. When I find myself grumbling a bit too much, I pause, collect my thoughts, and give thanks for all the good stuff. Gratitude softens my heart as we sit […]
After 6 days of homeschooling, I feel like we’re finding our groove. Joe has declared his love for going to school at home, Leila is determined to put in just as much work as Joe, and I’m having more fun than I thought possible. So why am I anxious? As well as everything is going, […]
The purpose of running has changed for me many times over my lifetime. As a child, running was simply a way to get somewhere faster. I see this in my children now. Why walk when you can run? As I became involved in sports, running was part of the game. I never had to think […]
We are a few days into homeschooling and the Whole 30. At first I thought we were crazy to start both at once, but I am appreciating the extra energy from the boost of whole foods. We are eating tons of vegetables, good protein, and healthy fats. I don’t think I could have made it […]
Our family just spent three months in Montana. Three glorious months when our kids could run and play outside all day long. We lived at the top of a hill overlooking a small town. This was our view from the front yard. Aside from being breathtaking, it was the perfect place for Joe and Leila to […]
Today we start a new Whole 30 challenge which requires lots of planning, grocery shopping, cooking, and organizing. Oh, and we start homeschool too. We are nothing short of overachievers around here. (Send help.) I’ll be doing the modified low-FODMAP plan, and I guess that means Jeff will be too since I’m the one who […]
When friends describe me, the term “laid back” is often used. I’m pretty easygoing. Not much of a planner. I like to go with the flow. According to StrengthsFinder, one of my top five strengths is adaptability. As a baseball wife, this comes in handy. Jeff’s job is year-to-year. We don’t have a permanent residence. […]
We are finishing up our three month stay in Missoula, Montana this week. If you follow me on Instagram, you know how sad I am to leave this beautiful place. The weather, the people, the active lifestyle, and of course the gorgeous scenery has won us over big time. In case you’re ever in the […]
Have you ever noticed how much harder it is to be awesome when you’re trying to be someone else? My friends and I have been talking about fear and weakness lately. About what happens when we focus on our weaknesses, when we think about all the ways we don’t measure up to others, when we […]
Exercise used to be something that just happened for me. A side-effect of joining various sports teams and growing more competitive at each level. I didn’t have to think about going to the gym, I was just part of the team. And as a team, we practiced. We pushed each other. We worked our butts […]
