One day last Spring, I substitute taught in kindergarten. The class was, let’s say, energetic and, let’s be honest, I was fairly unseasoned in the world of kindergarten at that point. Nonetheless, I did my best and most of them followed suit. A couple children struggled to cooperate and I asked them to [...]
My Personal Goals for 2016 got eaten up into the abyss of the interwebz, and, honestly, I haven’t been able to bear the thought of rewriting and typing the whole thing with my still-hurt hand. But that doesn’t mean I can’t write! I’ve decided to move on to my Marital Goals post because, [...]
A few days ago, I shared my 2016 Family Goals with you all. They were fun!!! Today’s topic is not quite as fun, but it’s definitely important.
My husband and I are very finance-minded people who like to set goals and allocate funds accordingly. We already have meetings or check-ins periodically [...]
I’m guessing it won’t come as a huge surprise to you all that I’m not a big “New Year’s resolution” kind of girl. I just don’t really like the pressure and, honestly, I’m so fickle that I get bored with resolutions (or “words”, for that matter) by the end of January.
When the topic of meal planning comes up, there are typically two big schools of thought– there are those who despise it and find it tedious and boring and there are those who LOVE it and are passionate list-makers.

When I decided to take on this whole capsule wardrobe challenge, I knew right away that “three month” capsules wouldn’t work for my lifestyle and climate. But, as I told you all when I shared my Early Fall Capsule, that’s the beauty of this concept! You can totally tweak it and make it [...]
I happily taught my class of seventeen kindergarteners, relishing my time with them, despite the oppressively hot classroom.
I heard the main office secretary call me over my intercom and I picked up the phone. She wanted to know if I wanted to fill in for a tutor the next day. Feeling [...]
Hey, hey! Long time, no write! Our new school year kicked off last week and, with it, my continued work as a substitute teacher. I LOVE working in the school, so it’s a good thing, but I’m sorry if I dropped off the earth a bit there!
Today, I wanted to share [...]
It’s only taken about seven years, but I’m finally starting to feel more comfortable writing about some of the ups and downs of raising a gifted child. I’ve become more confident in what I’m doing and I feel like I’ve learned a ton along the way. I still fret that I’ll come [...]
Today, I thought it’d be kind of fun to look back at some statements that I know for certain I’ve made either here on the blog or on social media that turned out to be totally untrue. Now, I wouldn’t say I was LYING, per se, since I believed what I was writing [...]
