I wanted to do a Thanksgiving project with the kids that focused on being grateful for all the little and big things in life. As I started to peruse Pinterest, I realized that A) I didn’t want to spend a ton of money, and B) I didn’t want to spend a ton of time. So […]
It’s the best meal of the year: Thanksgiving Dinner. I’m getting excited right now just thinking about it. The turkey, the mashed potatoes, the stuffing…it’s all so wonderful. I remember my first Thanksgiving after getting married. There were only four of us celebrating in a tiny apartment, but the table was loaded with food. We […]
Last year I wrote about life getting crazy and the urge to clean off my plate. Maybe it’s a November thing, but I feel the need to do it again. I try to be as intentional as I can about my time and commitments. I do my best to say no to good things so […]
Last week I hosted a Noonday Collection trunk show. My friend Sarah drove up from Tucson so we could have fun trying on all the beautiful jewelry Noonday has to offer. I only added a few fifteen things to my Christmas wishlist. I set out a few simple appetizers for the guests. We had popcorn, antipasto bites, […]
“Mom can we start today with painting?” I hesitated. After lecturing him last week on how homeschooling means there is no set schedule. On how he needs to be flexible in his expectations.

Nothing out of the ordinary is happening, but all of a sudden it’s like someone flushed out my eyeballs because I can so clearly see […]
I haven’t been blogging as much lately because I’ve been enjoying wider margins in my life. And I count that as a very good thing. So today I pause and give thanks for the joy and peace found in little moments. For gluten-free chicken & waffles, kale chips, and a date who shares. For an […]
My favorite part of Halloween is probably the annual “make-the-face-of-your-pumpkin” photo. That never gets old. What does get old? The heat. I know, we choose to live here, but can’t I just wear a scarf once in the month of October? No? Ok fine. I’ll just take my whiny self into the air-conditioned house and curl […]
You know when I feel the most run down? The most anxious? The most stuck? When my life has no margins. To have margins means to be thoughtful in scheduling. Not living a life so busy that everything is back-to-back-to-back-to-back. To have margins means making time for breathers throughout the day, or if it is a […]
