Screen Free Kids

Screen free: I know it’s unheard of with screens even at gas station to entertain us while we pump gas. Screens are everywhere! Over a year ago we significantly cut down our daughter’s screen time.

It's Finally Fall Y'all

It’s FINALLY Fall Y’all!

The temperature has finally dipped below 70 for a few consecutive days.

Or your partner…if you managed to get one. […]

Motherhood Haikus

Motherhood in Haikus

When writing about motherhood, there are just so many things to include. So many ways to approach it. Should you be serious? Should you be tender-hearted? Should you be silly?

Chattanooga Halloween Events 2017

We have finally entered my favorite part of the year: the holiday season! Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas, oh my!
