Unexpected Encouragement

My mom, being the gift-giver that she is, brought over an adorable green onesie for Ty declaring, WHAT HAPPENS AT GRANDMA’S, STAYS AT GRANDMA’S, along with a treat for Tanner, a delectable snack in the form of chocolate for me, and I’m sure something else that I can’t recall at the moment… simply because her love language is gift-giving and …

Recently I found myself saying these three phrases way too often: “I’m tired.” “I’m done.” “I’m frustrated.” I was tired because I’m way too much of a night-owl, and Bryan and I often have our best talks {couch dates} til late, or, we are catch up on our favorite shows… does anyone else cry at every episode of Parenthood? 🙂 …

I had a Pretty Woman moment today… no, I didn’t sing Prince in the tub, or attend a Polo match and stomp on the divots {although I did do that recently and it’s quite fabulous}. Bryan did not save me from a life of prostitution. But, Julia, I feel ya! Today I was you in the Rodeo store. Okay, it …

I love entertaining and having people over. I love helping Bryan cook …

I have about 3 or 4 fragrances which are my …

I’m giddy! Beyond! Like I’m 5 and discovering Disneyland for the first time! My dear friend Annette came up yesterday to play, which really means we sat on the couch cupping warm drinks and talking in fast-forward, while our boys thoroughly enjoyed uprooting my freesia bulbs and covering themselves in black soil… and then the creativity began! Annette has an …

It’s been a while, but I’m back to blogging. Not that I ever stopped blogging… in my head that is. It was getting my brain out on the computer that never happened! I recently asked a friend if they have invented something that connects one’s blogging thoughts directly to a blog, but apparently it has yet to be invented. Yet. …
