It happens to the best of us, you know. You. Me. We just end up there when life is busy and we’re starting to get hangry (hungry + angry)!
I had just finished shopping at our local grocery store. It was one of my first alone outings as a new mom—and boy it was memorable. What normally was a routine 20 minute trip for 10 items—turned into a 2.5 hour waste of time. The grocery store had decided that weekend to re-order their stock. To a new sleep–deprived mom it seemed absolutely ridiculous. The things that were logical to me as a baker and cook—somehow the person in charge didn’t seem to have the slightest clue, didn’t bake or cook, or didn’t do their own shopping.

Hey there! So, the other day I was talking with a friend and she said, “I have a morning routine that no matter what I do, it always takes me 2 hours to complete it. Is there some trick for how to save time in your day?” The funny thing about our conversation, was that…
As moms we have hopes and dreams—goals in life that we want for our kids, family, and ourselves. January is when you’re most likely looking for the best way to accomplish your goals in life. I’m no different. The New Year is exciting, hopeful, and gives me the opportunity to start over—but not this year….
I have to be honest, Mondays are a real test for me because the weekend is such a precious time of really connecting fully with my husband and my son. Monday morning is a reminder of a new week beginning, but also an end to enjoying quality time with my favorites. The hardest Mondays are…
