A 3 Year Old’s Goodbye

I'm currently sitting in the airport which is a place I haven't been in quite some time. I'm traveling for work, making my way to a 6 day training which will end with some new certifications and knowledge about how to better support my team. 6 days. With an additional day devoted to travel. It's … Continue reading A 3 Year Old’s Goodbye

Word of 2018: Engage

I received a Day Designer planner from my parents for Christmas and immediately devoured the annual planning pages. In previous years, I've chosen a phrase or a Bible verse as my inspiration for the year but I'm letting my new planner set the course this time around. As such, I've limited myself to one lone … Continue reading Word of 2018: Engage

Life has been a little hectic lately.

Life has been a little hectic lately. In the last 7 weeks or so, I have worked in inordinate amount of overtime. Do you still call it overtime when you're a salaried employee? Not just a few late nights here and there or a few early meetings but multiple days' worth of time. Leading up to our … Continue reading Life has been a little hectic lately.

The Family Teeter Totter

How do people balance married life with child(ren)? I've been going at it for three years now and I don't think I'm very good at it. They say practice makes perfect but everyone in my family keeps growing and changing. The second I think I'm on to something, I run into a wall or trip … Continue reading The Family Teeter Totter

A Mile A Day: Day 25-28

I always say that anyone can do anything* for 30 days but 30 days really is a long time to do the same thing and continue finding interest in it. Or at least continue to find interest writing about it. I imagine it's the same for reading so I'm going to start condensing the last … Continue reading A Mile A Day: Day 25-28

A Mile A Day: Day 22

She rode her bicycle while Freddy, Winston, and I walked. She pedaled hard. She almost made the turn from road to sidewalk this time. She only needed a little push. Halfway through the ride, she stopped. "I need to climb this wall," she said. She hopped off her little bike and scaled the retainer wall … Continue reading A Mile A Day: Day 22

A Mile A Day: Day 21

"Can you help me so I don't go too fast?" My daughter and I took today's mile with her on her bicycle and me on foot. Each decent, she asked me to slow her down if her bike started to move too quickly. She didn't panic. One time she even braked on her own without … Continue reading A Mile A Day: Day 21

A Mile A Day: Day 20

A split mile. Some on bike with my beautiful and ever-surprisingly-capable three year old daughter (Do you ever stop feeling amazed at what your child can accomplish?) who got a big girl bike with training wheels today! And some with my trusty mutt, Winston.  I adore this cautious and courageous child. She is a lion … Continue reading A Mile A Day: Day 20

A Mile A Day: Day 14

I'm playing catch up after this amazing weekend! Tonight's mile was a run/walk to get back in time to tuck my sweet babe into bed. It was preceded by a mother's day brunch surrounded by my husband, father, brother-in-law, and three of the most important mothers in my life: my mother, mother-in-law, and sister. My … Continue reading A Mile A Day: Day 14
