What if? 

  Do you wonder if you could do something? Maybe you should try it. Could you run marathon? Write a book? Bake baklava? Try parkour? Plant a garden? I say no a lot: It's not the right time, I'm busy, It's not for me. With three little kids chatting my ears off and needing all the … Continue reading What if? 

Heaps of Books! (Best of Recently)

I know I said I wouldn't be doing this every month, but what else am I going to do? Reading is a big part of my life and always has been. And somehow books are something I nearly always have head space to write about and share about. So here I am again linking up with Modern … Continue reading Heaps of Books! (Best of Recently)

Whole-list-ical (4.12.17)

I don't know about you but my kids have been insane lately. Or maybe I have. Or maybe life. Or maybe it's just life and the fact that we're running out of coffee here. IDk. But here's a few things that have been making my life happier or spurring me on to more wholeness lately … Continue reading Whole-list-ical (4.12.17)

Whole-list-ical (3.13.17)

Happy Monday! We are enjoying loads of sunshine and I am using new strategy for hopefully helping my kids to fight less: sit outside with them! Ha. We will see how that goes, but it is officially spring weather here and I am happy!  Here are just a few things that have made me smile or brought … Continue reading Whole-list-ical (3.13.17)

Happier Walls / Happier Me

So I've been doing a lot of creating that's not verbally driven. It's been a little crazy here and being able to check out of my head focus has been relaxing. And often this means I'm actively making something or arranging things in ways that make me happier. So it's a good mood boost all … Continue reading Happier Walls / Happier Me

The Real Role of Feelings (Day 3)

With three kids and life besides, the emotional input in this house are constantly at high levels. As much as I would like to tune it out or make them all be happy and volume-controlled, I can't. It doesn't work. The only person I can control is myself. And even that goes awry at times (I'm … Continue reading The Real Role of Feelings (Day 3)

The Less and More Life {Challenge – #Wholemama}

    When I consider my life in the light of wholeness, I am invited to grab up all the pieces of who I am or want to be and meld them together into my own one life. The challenge is knowing how to fit all the pieces in, which pieces to choose, and where to … Continue reading The Less and More Life {Challenge – #Wholemama}

Lose and Find {Five Minute Friday}

The losing and finding of all the pieces has been this motherhood journey for me. I've lost the sideline dreams of a career of some sort (for now, you know) and I've found this perpetual challenge of walking alongside my munchkins. Sitting with their tired tantrums and wishing I knew exactly the right way to … Continue reading Lose and Find {Five Minute Friday}

What I’m into | Spring 2016

Well. We have been up to a lot and out and about a lot. I have been trying to take the kids hiking once a week. We've also been hitting up the zoo, the library, and nana's house about as often for some playtime for the kids and solo running time for me. It has … Continue reading What I’m into | Spring 2016
