Still here

4 Dec

Don’t worry I am still alive. I know, You really weren’t worried at all. You see me over-posting on Instagram all day every day. I got through October and finished the fundraising and have been trying to settle back into real life and catch up around the house and it’s just been, well, nuts. And [...]

No-Bake Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

When second chances are actually twohundredandfiftysecond chances

2 Aug

I just got done having a serious talk with my almost-13 year old. (Oh Lordy do I feel old, my son is almost a teenager) He had a really hard time wrapping his brain around what I was telling him, but I’m finding it to be true. It was normal kid stuff. His little brother [...]
