In my entire life, I have had only two paying jobs. The first was teaching, in which I have a degree. The second was working in my dad’s office. I don’t know what it’s like to work late hours in an office, or have pressing deadlines. I do not know what it’s like to climb the corporate ladder. […]
He would chase me around the house, call me names and spy on my friends and me. I wasn’t innocent either, after all, we were siblings. He got me and I got him. There was one time, I think I was 14 and he was 11, while I was on the bed minding my own […]

My family lives a wild, unusual lifestyle that many people have questions about: We don’t have a TV. I know. It’s kinda crazy, but we actually love not having a TV. Here are the answers to the most common questions I get about *gasp* living without television. You mean you don’t have cable? Nope. We […]
Living in paradise, most people assume that we hit the beach every day. As much as I wish this were true, we have other things that we should do most days. So when the opportunity to stick our feet in the sand pops up unexpectedly, I want to be prepared. That’s why I always have […]
In partnership with the Cultural Arts Alliance of Walton County. As a mom, I have two personalities: Regular Mom, and Summer Mom. Since Summer Mom is in charge right now, I have this thing where I don’t want to overbook my kids in the summer. There are lots of reasons, but most of those are […]
Implementing and enforcing rules to a high-schooler is a new ballgame. As the nuances of their lives become more complicated, so do the rules. I missed that day of motherhood training when they passed out the handbook. In fact, for the last 15 years I’ve been winging it from day to day with the simple […]
Being a new mom of 3 kiddos, all in car seats and under the age of five, I have recently found myself in the conundrum of needing a BIGGER car. I currently drive a Lexus RX and am in LOVE with it. It was the first car we bought as a married couple, the […]
In partnership with The Green OwlA good Turkish towel is like the Bonnie to my Clyde. It’s with me no matter what, and won’t let me down, even if I’m putting it in harm’s way. I take it with me to the Beach (so sandy), have one in the Bathroom (not kidding), use it for […]
I don’t love to cook. There I said it. It’s actually one of the things I dislike the most about my mom gig. I’d rather do the clean up than the cooking. I grew up with a single working mother who did the best she could as far as fast and easy dinners. It was always […]
I’m not going to lie, I have never really considered myself a bargain shopper which is super unfortunate for my husband, huh? But if the adoption process as taught me anything, it’s how to pinch a penny. If your toddler is anything like my threenager, ya gotta have a plan. Alas, I bring to you: Fun […]
What are you doing this summer? I’m going to Disney World! Cue the excitement and happy dance! That phrase makes even the oldest seem like a giddy kid thinking about Disney World…Or maybe it’s just me. And I’m ok with that! I’ve been going to Disney World since I was 3 years old […]
