Nov + Dec 2018

  Happy Holidays! We are in full cozy-mode around here. I don’t know about all of you but I seem to fluctuate daily between experiencing pure joy this Christmas season and also being totally overwhelmed about all the things a parent needs to do and be during the holidays. These feelings seemed to be heightened…

Thanksgiving 2017

  Hi, friends! I hope everyone’s December is off to a merry (and not to stressy) start. Before I start posting all the holly jolly hoopla, I want to back up and get Thanksgiving recorded in the books because it turned out to be a special one. After spending the last 9 Thanksgivings in Minnesota,…

Life Lately… and Thankfulness!

Good morning! I’m going to attempt a little combination post of what’s been happening with us lately in addition to a few words of thankfulness in there with Thanksgiving being tomorrow and all.   Earlier in November, my sister flew in to visit for a few days and (as I suspected), we had a smashing…

Turkey Tacos with Cranberry Salsa

Sure, no one else in my family will…

We spent Thanksgiving Day in low-key fashion. Joe and I took the kids to Good Times Park Thanksgiving morning and came…

Thanksgiving 2014

    Happy Thanksgiving! We spent our holiday at home this year (for the first time ever!). Since our whole family has had a sickness of some sort recently, it felt wonderful to have a slow, cozy morning together spent relaxing and sipping coffee in our jammies.   The menu was far more Rachel Yuen than Rachael Ray. I made the…

7 Reasons to be Thankful

During past Thanksgivings, I’ve enjoyed acknowledging on this blog how thankful I am for my friends, and family, pizza, and being a stay-at-home mom. However, this past year has been intense and sad. At this point, I’ve realized just how much I’ve taken for granted and how much I truly have. So I want to be a…
