Done and Free {Five Minute Friday}

I'm done. Done wondering if I'm allowed to do this or that or if I can. Instead I'll be thinking about how I will and what goes on under the surface of pursuing this or that or that or the other. Done with expectations based on cultural stereotypes and "this-is-how-you-should's. I'm done telling myself I can't … Continue reading Done and Free {Five Minute Friday}

A ONE Way to Quick Lit

First things first. I've wanted to participate Modern Mrs Darcy's Quick Lit link-up more often, but I had it in my head that I had to write about the books I'd read from May 15th-June 15th.

No. 1: It must look boring.

Something about having three young kids makes you a little more guarded about any scrap of potential quietish time you could possibly have. Lately we've been playing in the front yard a lot because the kids are loving the front yard things: bikes, scooters, and swings. And our backyard is pretty small so it makes … Continue reading No. 1: It must look boring.
