I’ve kinda disappeared off the face of the planet again for the last several weeks and with good reason. I needed some ME TIME. What on earth is that, you ask? It’s time that this mama needed to take for herself and for her family. At the end of March, I went to Disneyland with … Continue reading

As I was getting ready to write this week’s favorite things, I realized that not all my favorite things are actual THINGS… So, it wouldn’t be fair for me to try to post ITEMS each week that I love because, eventually, I will run out of items that I love. I’m going to be posting … Continue reading

our wedding

So, I wrote about Baby J’s birth story, but before that happened, we got married. 🙂 We have only been married a little over a year and a half, so our wedding is pretty fresh in my memory. It was a perfect day. WARNING: This post is pretty long as well. It’s also full of … Continue reading
