A New Perspective

0

For the past thirty something years of my life, if I made a goal — whether it was a new year’s resolution or one made in the middle of the year — I had to reach it perfectly, otherwise I would consider it a failure and give up.  If I “failed” at one new year’s […]

Working Out at Home with Obé Fitness

0

I know it seems very cliché to talk about working out in the month of January, but hopefully this article won’t sound like a broken record. I will be the first to tell you that over the past year, I haven’t made any sort of exercise a priority. I know many people used the pandemic […]

The Song List of My Life

Those who remember a time without cell phones might also remember pulling out a huge binder containing their CD collection. Oh, those were the days! This got me thinking…my playlists have certainly changed since those high school days.  Therefore, I wanted to take a walk down memory lane and share with you the various playlists […]

I Can’t Wait to Nudge My Little Bird Out of the Nest 

1

Amidst all the COVID-19 chaos, one bit of normalcy dominated the fall for my family: the college application process. My older son, a senior at Notre Dame, spent almost every moment of free time writing essays, completing the Common App (a single application used by most colleges that streamlines much of the application process), gathering […]

What to Buy for Baby in 2021

0

Eight months ago, I welcomed my fifth baby and first girl into life. It had been nine years since the birth of my first baby and I felt immune to all the fads and scams in the baby merchandise industry. Cute baby Nikes that never get used? Wipes warmer that dehydrated the baby wipes? Baby […]

Over our Christmas break, we had a bit of extra time at home. As I organized and nested in my house, I called a friend who has an eye for home design. Seriously, reach out; I’ll pass her info to you! As we were talking about the changes I want to make, I mentioned this […]

30+ Best Mexican Restaurants in Chattanooga

Dear Readers, Few things fill my heart with joy more than a good Mexican restaurant. To be fair, my heart also skips a beat for decent and okay Mexican food. I am drawn to free chips and salsa, liquid cheese, margaritas, and anything from nachos to tacos, and anything in between! Thankfully, the good Lord […]

The Lens of Motherhood

I have had the ability to view life through various lenses. We all have. I was able to see life through the lens of childhood, through the lens of a college student, sorority girl, grad student, anxiety sufferer, etc., but as we move through life, we lose some of our lenses.  We grow up, we […]

2021, Now What?

0

I celebrated the end of 2020 probably like most of you, at home and differently than any other New Year’s Eves past. This has been a challenging, trying, exhausting year with some really great things mixed in with all the hard stuff. I was so ready to put 2020 to bed and ring in 2021, […]

This is NOT a New Year Resolution Post

0

I repeat: this is not a new year resolution post. This is not a change-everything-about-yourself-today post. So, if today marks the start of a completely new you that no longer eats bread, no longer yells at the kids for yelling at each other, and is now a day 1 dedicated CrossFit enthusiast, this post is […]
