Everyone seemed to be so excited when Disney Plus came out. And by everyone, I meant adults everywhere. People counted down days until its arrival; some even took the day off work! There were so many memes that came out that were very funny and very accurate. I saw one meme that said something like […]
When I was a little girl, I had a diary with a lock and key. The hardest part was keeping up with the key since I did not want my brother seeing my deepest, private thoughts. He grew up to be an amazing brother but at the time, he was a bit ruthless (as brothers generally […]

It was 3am, and neither of us had slept. My red-faced, two-day-old son was screaming and writhing in my arms, refusing to latch to my bruised and bloody nipples. His deep need for comfort and sustenance was something I didn’t know how to fill. It didn’t seem to matter how much I sang to him […]
I don’t have a creative bone in my body. I get overwhelmed and wouldn’t have the first clue where to start. Creativity and art are expensive, and I don’t have enough time in the day. Any of these sound familiar? These are all comments I have heard from parents and while I am not […]

Dearest Friends, As you know, my mom died this summer. It’s taken me a long time to type those words. It’s hard to keep my fingers moving on the keyboard even six months later. I am still learning how to navigate life without her. I am well aware she is gone. It seeps into almost […]
We all know that being in the military and being a military spouse is not easy. Understatement of the year. But it is not all grey clouds and rain. Despite all the deployments, PCS moves, and hardships there are actually some perks. A little ray of sunshine, right? I’m often surprised to discover that my […]
We. Love. Historical. Fiction. I knew that The Alice Network by Kate Quinn had to be a pick for our book club. The reviews were great, every other book nerd I know recommended it, and again, our club loves historical fiction. It’s an entertaining way to learn about events and facts, especially if you are […]
