Around here I'm doing less blogging and more emailing. Sign up to get the bi-weekly email Simple Saturdays in your inbox.

So intentional living, setting goals, dream bigger dreams, blah, blah, blah. Long story short, there is a tension that needs some easing. That tension is knowing that I live the life I live – then I write the life I want to live on paper – and they are different. Why is that? I have been […]
If you ask me, ‘Is motherhood what you envisioned it to be?’ I would probably just make some weird sound effects and give a shimmying shoulder shrug.

Twice. That’s how many times everything I believed about Christmas has been torn to little sparkly shreds of lies. First, when my older brother told me there was no Santa.
