As I’ve started to dip my toes into the homeschooling experience I’ve found myself swarmed by an extremely kind and generous community. Long gone are the days of isolation for homeschooled children. Homeschooling friends old and new seem to be coming out of the woodworks, and I feel like soon enough, we’ll know just as… read the rest.
Chapter 2| The Red Carpet (Read Chapter 1 here) “Do you like the red dress or the gold dress?” I asked my sister in the dressing room at Macy’s. It was a day before my flight to LA for a movie premiere and red carpet event. Nothing like last-minute shopping. “I like the gold,” my… read the rest.
Week after week my heart was breaking for parents facing terrible tragedies. A split second is all it takes for an accident to occur. A child to falls into a gorilla pen. A toddler is captured by an alligator. A child is forgotten in a car on a hot summer day. A babysitter gives a… read the rest.

This summer I am deciding if I’m going to unenroll my daughter from public school and homeschool her next year. But if you were to ask me for my answer today it would most definitely be yes. Yes I am. I’ve told a handful of friends and my husband and the first question is always… read the rest.
I’ve always been a little envious of people who know their heritage. People who can trace their family tree back to a specific country or region, or know when and how their family immigrated to the states. My grandmother on my mom’s side has done a lot of genealogy and can trace our roots back… read the rest.
Lil’ J and I went to see Alice Through the Looking Glass earlier this week and her opinion was not what I expected. If you missed it, here’s my take on the movie. I thought she would be scared and confused or maybe even a little freaked out, but she actually liked it. Here’s an… read the rest.
