Swimsuits, Sunscreen and Beans

Sometimes the stars align and amazing things happen. A moment so fleeting you have to document it to remember that it really did happen. Sometimes… you and your six year old daughter agree on something. This doesn't happen often so I want to give credit where credit...

#MyBetter

Sometimes I don't feel like going for a run. Sometimes I don't feel like lifting weights at the gym. Sometimes I don't feel like stretching until my legs shake at a barre class. But then I put on my running shoes and head out the door. And half the battle is over....

Problem? Solution!

Problem? Solution!

Sometimes in life you come face to face with a problem you have to solve. You could ask for help, but you don't want to because you know you can figure this out on your own. After all, you are six years old. Sometimes that problem is your hair getting in the way while...

I Ate It

I Ate It

"She's been working on it for about twenty minutes," my husband says as I walk in the front door. I look around him to see my six year old daughter at the kitchen table, intently focused on something. "Working on what?" I ask. "Dessert," he answers. "Dessert? She's...

A Sub-2 Hour What???

A Sub-2 Hour What???

  "These 3 Men Will Attempt To Run A Sub-2 Hour Marathon." I had to read the headline twice. A sub-2 hour marathon??? Yes, three men are going to attempt to run a marathon in under 2 hours in 2017. Wow. Wow! Impressive. And humbling. You see, I also have a 2 hour goal...

I Wish I Liked Expensive Things

I Wish I Liked Expensive Things

I wish I liked expensive things. Don't get me wrong; I like a lot of things that cost a pretty penny. I can rack up the visa bill quite nicely (just ask my husband). But my husband Mark... He likes expensive things: expensive things made of carbon fibre, aluminum and...

We Missed Our Nutcracker Entrance

We Missed Our Nutcracker Entrance

I had already visualized our names in lights... ⭐️The Nutcracker: Starring Amy, Lucy & Sam⭐️ Alright... so maybe "starring" was a bit misleading. How about "guest starring?" Yeah... That may be a bit of a stretch as well. Maybe we could say "special appearances...
