Chattanooga Moms Neighborhood Easter Egg Hunt

Chattanooga families may not be able to attend some of our favorite Easter egg hunts this year, but with a little help from our local communities, we can go on an Easter egg hunt while still practicing social distancing. Similar to the ‘bear hunts’ and ‘chalk walks’ we’ve seen popping up in neighborhoods all over […]

I Want My Old Job Back

After two and a half weeks of social distancing, I’m learning a lot about myself. It seems like overnight everything changed. I became a homeschooling mom and DIY mom.

There Is No Work-Life Balance Right Now

A few days ago, I was talking to my younger brother on the phone. He’s the only person I have long phone conversations with. We usually chat about the everyday stuff of life — cool finds at the grocery store, the latest Netflix show craze (he’s always a step or two ahead of me), and […]

If you’ve been anywhere on the planet these past few weeks, you’ll know that grocery shopping has now become a spin-off of the Hunger Games, perhaps in more ways than one. Also, if you’re reading this and haven’t even heard of the Hunger Games, then I have no words. If you found bread, flour, or […]

I Am So Thankful for My Village: Chattanooga


I hate to say it, but the first few years of motherhood for me were tough, to the point of being downright horrible. It had nothing to do with my wonderful, beautiful daughter — other than her inability to sleep a night through — and had everything to do with how alone I was. We’ve […]

Hey Kid, How Are You?


Hey Kid, How are you? The past few weeks have been wild. We have entered into a whole new level of crazy and I have been so worried about you. I felt myself settling into a funk. I was worried…about you and your brother; about our family; about our school; about postponing your birthday party. […]

So Your Teenager Wants a Car: Some Things to Keep in Mind


There’s nothing quite as simultaneously exciting and nerve-wracking as having a new teen driver in the family. The only thing I can think of to compare it to is that period when your baby becomes a toddler and you want to follow them around as they practice walking to ensure they don’t fall and crack […]
