Last weekend I was driving my girls home from an activity and the Colbie Caillat Song “You Don’t Have to Try” came on the radio. It stopped me cold. I had never heard it before- and the lyrics with their message of telling women that they don’t have to try so hard to get other […]

We’re full-on into November which means it is time to practice gratitude and start thinking ahead towards the holidays! This month I’ll be hosting my annual Momof6 Holiday Gift Guide series (along with some […]

As a little girl I was in love with the “Little House on the Prairie” series. I loved the books, I loved the TV show, and I loved to imagine what it would have been like to be Laura Ingalls growing up in pioneer times, wearing aprons over my dresses with petticoats, and bonnets, and […]

Last weekend, the ASPCA partnered with dozens of animal shelters to hold their 2014 Mega Match-A-Thon event, and  over 5000 animals […]

Fo awhile now I’ve been wanting to freshen things up here on the blog. Not in a scrap-everything-I’ve-done-and-completely-rebrand kind of way…. (because that messes with your Pinterest traffic- big time!) but more of a let’s declutter-and-organize-the-site-so readers-can-find-my-good-stuff makeover.

It’s really no wonder that my kids are constantly glued to some sort of a screen. Just look at me….. operating as a “role model”.
