In Sickness and in Health Means More Than You Think

In Sickness and in Health Means More Than You Think

I like sweets.  That comes as no surprise to those of you who know me.  Did you know my husband hates to floss?  Put those two things together and it gives us each plenty of nagging ammunition.  But, here is something important that I have learned about marriage:  I cannot complain about my weight or…

Why Do We Hate Sacrifice?

Why Do We Hate Sacrifice?

I am facing the birth of my third child any day now.  I have had the great privilege of being pregnant along with my best friend.  She is having her eighth child.  I am the oldest of eight children myself.  The outpouring of love, as evidenced by our friends at our joint Storybook Baby shower, is…

Storybook Baby Shower

Storybook Baby Shower

I wanted to share with you the loveliest baby shower that my vintage doll planned for me.  In a crazy turn of events I found myself pregnant at the same time as my dearest friend in the world.  Both of us have amazing teen and tween daughters who put all of their talents together, and…

On a Babymoon

On a Babymoon

We just returned from a glorious weekend in the Florida Keys.  Just my husband and I.  It came on the heels of a big production of Beauty & the Beast that my children were involved in.  It was sandwiched between that and their dance recital, co-op final exams and reaching that magic full term window…

Another use for my Cricut machine

Another use for my Cricut machine

I have made diecuts for scrapbooking, fondant cut outs for cakes, cards for Valentines and stickers for gift wrapping with my handy Cricut cutting machine.  But I have recently discovered my new favorite use for that little wonder that can sometimes sit for too long and collect dust: graphic t-shirts! We have had a blast…

Why Have a Will?

Why Have a Will?

I must blog today on one of those things that nobody like to talk about – when you die.  I come today as your friendly neighborhood lawyer.   I have seen too many expensive legal situations that were totally avoidable with a little advanced planning.  So let me ask that tough question – do you…

On Birthing Biblically

On Birthing Biblically

This post is written for born again Christians.  I want to throw out a crazy idea for you to ponder.  Birth involves suffering, as we all know.  Even a C-section or epidural does not remove the suffering from us, only changes it.  Just like in the rest of life, there will be suffering in the…

On Birth and Birth Choices

On Birth and Birth Choices

I joined a prenatal yoga class a few weeks ago.  I was surprised to find myself the only mom who was not experiencing her first pregnancy.  I was not surprised to find myself the only mom over 40.  Listening to the expectations and fears of the group of moms with various backgrounds and ethnicities I…

Our Gender Reveal Popsicles

Our Gender Reveal Popsicles

We succumbed to the trend.  My hip twenty-something sister had a gender reveal instead of a baby shower.  It was lots of fun to bite into a Boston Creme cupcake and discover the filling was blue.  So since we have two girls and just about everyone in our family and friends prayed for, hoped for…
