Let me start by saying that I may just quit numbering these days....it's getting depressing at this point. If I'm honest, by the time I have worked all day, picked up our girls, made dinner, found the couch under the laundry (again), played with the girls and hung out with Jason, I'm kinda just done.… Continue reading Day #8….Less of all the girl drama
This weekend, we went to Mississippi for a friend's wedding reception. On our three hour road trip, we listened to random radio stations, sang incredibly loudly and off-key and I'm pretty certain our girls felt like our dancing should have been considered child abuse! But, we had fun! The next morning, we woke up and… Continue reading Day #7….Less social media, less writing, but lots of great memories!

We started with reading Interrupted, and I have one chapter left in Seven, Both of these books have highlighted how much I need to shift my focus off… Continue reading Day #3….Here’s how this whole thing started….I blame Summer 😉
