The first time Joe took a bit of hummus, he proudly exclaimed, “I love this humpus!” Yes, humpus. We laughed so hard that the name stuck. So if you come over and I put out a tray of veggies and humpus, please make sure to refer to it accordingly. For October entertaining, I love to […]
It’s almost Halloween, so it’s time to start thinking about ALL THE CANDY. If you’re gluten-free like me, you’ll want to make sure any candy you eat is safe. Click here or on the image below to find this year’s list of gluten-free Halloween candy. But just because it’s gluten-free, doesn’t mean it’s healthy. So what should […]
It’s rainy and cool here in Phoenix today. Fall is my favorite time of year because we can finally go outside to play. Except for this year because we have a major mosquito problem. For the first time ever, I am praying for the rain to stop. We are covered in bites, and it doesn’t […]
Pain comes and goes in my life, but when it comes, it sets up camp for a good while. Weeks at a time when my whole life revolves around pain. Sometimes chronic pain has a name, most of the time it doesn’t. Sometimes that is the hardest part of all. Sometimes people think it’s all […]

So many people have told me they would never have the patience to homeschool their kids. The word “brave” has even been […]
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 […]
