I’ve always thought Facebook birthday posts were a waste of time and I would never send them. They don’t mean, “I love you,” or, “I hope you’re having a great birthday.” What they really mean is, “I am a slave to social media. A message popped up and told me to say this so I did.” Except when it’s my birthday. When...

This time last year I was building a gingerbread village as a centerpiece for an afternoon tea party at my church that took me almost a week to make from start to finish.

It's always hard to see your kids go through disappointments like we did this week at our house.  Whether they are 3 or 12 or 18 I think all kids could use some confidence boosters!  I think helping them fill up their confidence "bucket" is a great tool to have, that way when those disappointments come, and they always do, they have that...

Being a mama can be totally awesome, utterly exhausting, and one heck of an emotional roller coaster with plenty of ups and downs.  I think we can all agree that having a support system is a must.  When I get together with my girlfriends or meet other moms for playdates, we love to chat about kids, fashion, parenting, the best places to buy...

Growing up, there were many instances I was convinced I had the meanest parents in the world.
