When there’s nothing to write about…

The past couple of weeks have been hard on me. Physically, the fatigue has been unreal. Mentally, the shifts in both work and home has left me scrambling to find a new “normal” (which I desperately crave right now). Emotionally, the combination of the physical and mental has taken its toll on me, and I… Continue reading When there’s nothing to write about…

[Musings of a Mommy] Who I COULD be versus who I AM…

I was asked last Wednesday to lead a short devotional at the start of a surprise baby shower for two of our co-workers (who are likely to have their babies within days of each other). While at first I was shocked, being literally only a step ahead of these soon-to-be-mommies without the massive breadth of… Continue reading [Musings of a Mommy] Who I COULD be versus who I AM…

[REPOST: “The Married Couple Chronicles”] Opposites Attract (By the Grace of God)

So I had a pretty busy week last week, and didn’t have a chance to prepare a blog post for today. Lots of work projects and events to plan = need to focus on said projects/events. You know how it is sometimes. But there was one very interesting thought I had last week that I really… Continue reading [REPOST: “The Married Couple Chronicles”] Opposites Attract (By the Grace of God)

[Musings of a Mommy] Mirror, Mirror…

So recently, my son and I have developed a little routine that we pretty much go through at least a dozen times every day. Basically, it goes a little like this… Me: “It’s time to [something he does not want to do at that exact moment].” Son: “No [the thing he does not want to… Continue reading [Musings of a Mommy] Mirror, Mirror…

[Simply Wardrobing] My Current Wardrobe Favorites (The Winter 2017 Edition)

So last week I talked about why the “simply wardrobing” thing works for me. I wanted to write a post this week going through the items in my current wardrobe and explain the reasons why each is in my closet. But, to be honest, I don’t think going through 36 35 articles of clothing piece by piece… Continue reading [Simply Wardrobing] My Current Wardrobe Favorites (The Winter 2017 Edition)

[Simply Wardrobing] My Personal “Not-Exactly-Capsule-Wardrobe” Method

So a handful of people have been asking me recently about this “capsule wardrobe” thing that I do and if they could perhaps pick my brain about how I put mine together. For those of you unfamiliar with the “capsule wardrobe,” it’s basically a collection (usually a smaller number) of carefully planned and selected versatile… Continue reading [Simply Wardrobing] My Personal “Not-Exactly-Capsule-Wardrobe” Method
