Making Room for Me

I have a tendency to put myself last. I spend hours each day serving and teaching those I love; and coaching women to be their greatest selves. At days end I sometimes feel depleted , worn and tired; having nothing left to give. At that point I am cranky and push off-ish. Often resenting homeschooling,…

What’s love got to do with Juggling?

Today we ventured to our local library to see The Juggling Hoffmans. This was by far the best Juggling show I have ever seen. It brought such joy to everyone’s heart watching. I was so upset when I realized I didn’t have my phone! I love to snap pics at every activity we attend for…

Road to 30

In 17 days I will be 30. I have waited my entire life to be thirty. You see, I have always acted older than my actual age. So turning 30 I feel my number age will “almost” match my maturity level. The last year of my 20’s has been a roller coaster; well an emotional…

Friday Fun Weekly Update!

Swimming pool fun, strawberry picking, yummy desserts and a few home projects has filled our week.  For homeschooling we have watched so much National Geographic I feel like I have a degree in Africa’s deadliest animals!

Courage

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” ― Winston S. Churchill Today’s post is short. So much has been going on emotionally. Still putting all the pieces together.  I am not yet ready to write or share publicly. But I know that through each thing that…

I don’t know how much ink I have used, but it has been a truly relaxing homeschool week, filled with artistic expression and pure fun! My kids have colored so much I…

Washington Post & Adult Coloring

Check out my featured video in the Washington Post! It took me 3.5 hours to complete this newspaper size picture. Adult coloring is the craze, but for some it is becoming an important part of their lifestyle. It is not only fun, but relaxing, and actually is proven to improve our mental and emotional health….

I was Approved!!

Living in the state of Maryland requires that all homeschool families present a student portfolio to show thorough instruction for the school year. Last year, I was so nervous because I didn’t know if all I had compiled for the year would be enough. One of my main “sellers” was my designed photo/yearbook full of…

I Am Who I Am.

The last few days I have been reflecting on my life, my journey and growth. I am in awe at where God has brought me from and the work I have put into being a healthy and whole woman. By no means am I perfect or have I arrived, but one thing is for sure…

Bathroom Moments

The bathroom. The place where we go to release all the toxins and waste from our bodies. The area no one likes to clean, where we shower/bathe and where boys and men alike just can’t seem to aim. The bathroom only used to serve these purposes for me, until I became a mother. And especially…

Distractions

Do you ever take a quick break to check Facebook or Instagram only to look up 30 mins later and realize that you were aimlessly scrolling. 30+ minutes of a day wasted on nothingness! Or do you grab your phone or electronic device to go to the bathroom? When at a restaurant, or even on…
