Spring is for the Birds

Last Spring, I was packing. Throwing stuff away, getting ready for a yard sale, and cleaning like a mad woman. (As much as I could with a toddler and 2 year old). There were no spring projects, crafts or decorations going on and it kind of drove me cuh-razy! This Spring, we're living in our travel… Continue reading Spring is for the Birds

The Battle Rages

The enemy’s voice isn’t a quiet whisper anymore. We’re nearer the front lines than ever, and it's louder here. Those once-subtle whispers of “You’ll never get good at this, will you?” and “Your kids deserve a better mommy” that I used to pray away in the privacy of my living room are now screamed incessantly… Continue reading The Battle Rages

RESULTS of Mission: 60 Dresses

Mission: 60 Dresses was an amazing success! When I first set the goal of 60 new dresses I did a lot of second guessing."No way will that many brand-new dresses come in!" I thought. Well, I was wrong.
