“It’s so important to pursue our kids. It gets busy in life and we can sometimes let those relationships slide and we can forget how quickly our children are growing up. You never want to overlook the long term relationship you’re building with your children.” That quote was from the last few minutes of a… Continue reading Let’s not ignore feelings
Nothing gets me more than a song that pulls at my heart strings. Especially when it comes to areas in my life where I have felt (feel) deeply. Last Saturday was the Pep Rally / Rehearsal for the girls that are on the competition teams (and duets/solos) for the dance company we have Celeste in.… Continue reading “I Get To Love You”
In the messy chaos and beauty that is motherhood for me, I think of these words. I am still feeling the lingering effects of last night’s emotional yet beautiful moment that I experienced with Celeste. Every morning I wake up and pray to God and ask him to help me be more patient, to not… Continue reading Let the calm come in
I am a lonely voice in the dark. Sitting here on our bathroom floor it hits me that I have become a line I once read in a book. I am so emotionally and physically exhausted it feels like my body is floating. All I want to do is close my eyes and cry. For… Continue reading The lonely voice of a mom
I truly believe this. Even on the toughest days.

Every once in awhile my heart sinks into a place of melancholy that no one knows about. It doesn’t happen often and when it does it is only when I am alone and darkness has settled and the people I love are tucked away in their space, living their own struggles or enjoying their own… Continue reading The dark side of happy
I’ve never shared this thought with anyone and in fact just today finally had the courage to voice it out loud to my husband, which gave me the confidence to share it on here… I feel though like I should first disclose that I absolutely LOVE and feel so blessed to be given the opportunity to be… Continue reading Is this a taboo parent thought?
This past week has been a difficult one for me, and the more I tried to figure out what was at the core of some of my thoughts and how I was feeling I realized the recurring theme that came to my mind was guilt. I have been full of guilt this week. Today is the Pasadena… Continue reading The Guilt Factor: Is this a Super Woman/Super Mom thing?
Oh I am loving my second trimester. I was thinking back today to how I felt the last two months of my first trimester, where all I wanted to do was sleep and find a way to make the nausea go away. Back then it seemed hard to believe when people would tell me to just wait… Continue reading Hello Energy!
