A Day In The Life Of A Pandemic Mom

8:00 am – I very reluctantly roll out of bed. I don’t need to brush my hair or do makeup because I already know I won’t be leaving the house today.

Slowing Down

So, my family and I tried something different this past week.  Different for us, at least. We have been living at our campground for 10 days now. Aside from crippling allergies every morning until the meds kick in – this place has been a very welcome change. Our lives always feel so rushed. Even with…… Continue reading Slowing Down

Having 3 kids of my own and being in my young 30s – I like to think of myself as a Cool Mom. Yeah, I’m still referencing Mean Girls after 16 years.
