An Ode to Domestic Balance

I just purchased dark chocolate because it’s healthier than milk chocolate, yet there is a huge jar of candy Olson got from Easter and it will most assuredly give him a cavity. But I can’t toss it cause that’s just wasteful.

Wine and Lays

I lead a busy life.

I’m not proud of that, but it has taught me things.

When I want to do something, it usually happens after work. Sometimes after dinner. Watching the Winter Olympics was a consistent highlight of our nights for a couple weeks. It was/is easy to sit on the couch and let the night fade away. But, the other night I wanted something different. So, while my sweet love made a delicious meal, the boys went for a run.

The Inn on Mill Creek

This was the first place Joel and I ever ventured to as husband and wife. It’s 30 minutes from Asheville and just East of Black Mountain and Old Fort, North Carolina. A perfect getaway, still close enough to civilization to enjoy a nice dinner out. Joel took me here for the first leg of our honeymoon in 2013. And he took me there again for our anniversary last year.  Continue reading “The Inn on Mill Creek”

A Few(ish) of my Favorite Things

I think it’d be fun to share things from time to time that are making me happy. Whether it’s beauty products, household stuff, new toys for Olson or a recipe that Joel likes. I’ve found that some of my favorite content online includes things that other women like me are enjoying. It was fun for me to hunt down some of these things online and rediscover why I’m enjoying that particular product.  Continue reading “A Few(ish) of my Favorite Things”

In 2018, I am not apologizing

IN 2018, the beautiful boys in this picture are my number one! Sorry, I’m not sorry! 😉

Thank you Lauren Morgan for capturing their joy!! Continue reading “In 2018, I am not apologizing”

Have a Mary Christmas!

Every year it seems to get worse. You prepare, and run around, and “serve” in as many ways as possible. All in an attempt to set the perfect stage for Christmas. We joke about how busy the holidays are, and while some of it IS funny (last minute gift giving, ugly sweaters being bought on the way to the party, buying the last Christmas ham), we have perfected the recipe for a distracted December. Continue reading “Have a Mary Christmas!”

What Four Years Looks Like

On Oct. 20th, my sweet Joel Randy and I celebrated four whole years of marriage. We celebrated on a hammock strung between two trees at Chester Frost park and asked each other questions like, “Do you remember what our first dates were like?” Or “What do you think has changed the most about me since those early dating years?” It doesn’t matter though, really. Cause whoever he is now is stuck with whoever I am now. That’s the beauty of marriage. 😉 Continue reading “What Four Years Looks Like”

Letting Things Go

Curse you Frozen for never allowing me to say any conjugation of “let” and “go” without wanting to belt Elsa’s song at the top of my lungs. I even envision my soul spiraling in frozen fractals all around… Continue reading “Letting Things Go”

My Response to the VMA’s

Written after watching the VMA’s, edited here and there along the way.

I had to hide my child’s eyes too many times tonight. I wanted to watch the VMA’s so that I could hear a bit of newer music. See who is sounding good. Watch Taylor Swift’s new music video. We never watch TV so I thought, okay let’s go for it. Continue reading “My Response to the VMA’s”
