Making Mom’s Life Easier

I have been invited to partner with LG's VIP Blogger Program and couldn't be more excited to be an #LGMom!  This post is part of a series of posts I will be writing under the sponsorship of LG.

There is always something … [Read more...]

Love Lessons

I don't feel like I really know much of marriage.  When my friend Laura asked me to write about marriage for her #WritingVows series, I felt lost.  What could I possibly write about?  I don't have any earth shattering words of wisdom, I still struggle and stumble every day.  Marriage is hard, hard work!  But maybe in my short years of marriage, I've learned a few things.  And I learn and grow all the time.  Please join me at Laura's blog today as I share a little bit of what I know about … [Read more...]

I wanted to keep it simple but be educational for her.  She's starting to recognize letters and I wanted a fun way for her to stay engaged.  I pull out this game every once in a while for her and we work on it … [Read more...]

Ok Moms, It’s Time to ‘Fess Up

I have been invited to partner with LG's VIP Blogger Program and couldn't be more excited to be an #LGMom!  This post is part of a series of posts I will be writing under the sponsorship of LG. Mother's Day has come and gone and that means back to the daily grind.  Sure it was nice to not cook for a day and not do (most of) the cleaning and dishes and diapers and baths...Hey, we moms do an awful lot, holiday or not.  And I love it, I honestly do.  But yes, it's really hard and stressful and … [Read more...]
