3 Tips for Keeping Warm in Your Cold Office

3 Tips for Keeping Warm in Your Cold Office

It’s kind of a fact of life when you work in an office environment that the temperature is never quite right. There’s the times the weather suddenly turns warm and your office is an oven, and the times that it’s freezing – both outside and inside. Our office even has offices that are frigid the same day that others are sweltering. Sometimes it is a struggle to stay comfortable.

Hello, 2019.

Hello, 2019.

Well, another year has gone, with another new year staring us in the face. It’s weird how it happens, isn’t it? One moment you’re solidly in a year you’ve spent 364 days living in, and the next you have a brand new, clean slate. I’ve seen it written that there’s nothing magical about January 1, and it’s true. Really, it’s just an abstract measurement of time, and not necessarily something to pin all our hopes and dreams, all our wishes for a new reality. And yet… every year, how many of us view it that way? View it as a new…

December Wishlist with Babbleboxx

December Wishlist with Babbleboxx

This post is sponsored by BabbleBoxx.com. Every year, my family asks what I want for my birthday and the holidays. Despite the fact I know it’s coming every year, I am somehow always stumped on what to ask for. Anyone else? Just me? You see, during the rest of the year, I have so many things I want to buy myself – books, makeup, shoes, etc… and by the time this time of year comes around, I’m out of ideas. My family says I’m the worst to shop for. I kind of don’t blame them. So when Babbleboxx wanted to…

TLC for Your Winter

TLC for Your Winter

Just a few weeks ago, we were enjoying the early stages of fall. It was slowly starting to cool off and we were all thankful the humidity was calming down – and then suddenly, the cold weather hit. We are officially in late fall to early winter weather here, and I am looking forward to all the cozy nights in to come. Fall and winter are just the perfect time to curl up on the couch and take a little extra care of ourselves, right? We can all use just a little extra care.

Fresh Finds for Fall

Fresh Finds for Fall

If you’ve been reading here for any length of time at all, you know that fall is my favorite season. Then again, most young moms would likely say the same. There’s something about it – the leaves changing, school back in session, and the air finally cooling off that just changes your perspective on things. So many people crave new things when the calendar hits January 1, but for me? That all happens in the fall.

Summer 2018

Summer 2018

Hey look! I’m back – writing a blog post. Imagine that. Maybe you’ve noticed I’ve been absent here, or maybe you haven’t. Other than a few sponsored posts I had already committed to here and there, I haven’t been around too much… because as I’m sure you all know from firsthand experience, things have been busy. This season of life has been so full. Our home is full of laughter and the wild antics of these two girls of ours. Our work lives are full of new skills, new friendships, and navigating new experiences. Our social lives are full of friends,…

Keeping My Cool in the Summer

Keeping My Cool in the Summer

I know I’m not alone when recognizing that summer as a mom isn’t always the glory days so many of us thought of as kids. To be fair, summer wasn’t my favorite as a kid, either! Summer here in Virginia comes with hot, humid days, summer thunderstorms, and tons of sunscreen. It’s not always easy to keep your cool in the summer – both physically and mentally!

So if you’re trying to figure out how the heck you’re going to get through this crazy summer with your kids – I’m telling you, you are not alone. They may be small things, but here are just a few ways to keep your cool in the summer!

Why I’m Done Trying to Fit the “Mom Blogger” Mold

Why I’m Done Trying to Fit the “Mom Blogger” Mold

I have been absent recently, but honestly, it isn’t because anything is wrong. In fact, it’s been the opposite. Coming to this place used to be an escape for me – a place to write, be myself, and get away from all the things I didn’t love – to get away from the job I felt stuck in, mostly. In the past 6 months, that has done such a complete 180 that it’s shocked me. I’m busy in all the best ways, and this little blog of mine has gone from a refuge to a place that I only go…

Finding Me Time as a Mom

Finding Me Time as a Mom

Let me set the scene for you. It’s 6:45 pm. You’re in the middle of making dinner for yourself and your husband. Your five-year-old is yelling that she needs help in the bathroom (when do they learn to do that themselves, anyway?), your toddler is whining for her dinner as you scramble to get some chicken nuggets on her high chair, and you’re dangerously close to setting off your smoke detector again.

Five on Friday – 1.26.18

Five on Friday – 1.26.18

It has been a LONG time since I’ve sat down to write solely to write. It has also been entirely too long since I’ve done a little life update, so I thought today I’d go back to the basics with a Friday Five. Remember when we all did these every week? It seems like ages ago now. While I would love to say I’ll do these more often going forward, the truth is I don’t know if I will. That’s the craziness of life, right? ONE This cold and flu season has KICKED MY BUTT. If you’ve seen my Instagram stories,…
