I have a confession to make. I was late in submitting this post to my editors. Normally I’m not a procrastinator, but this month, life got in the way. Sure, I had all the typical distractions as a mom –...
My husband travels. Not in the fun tropical, relaxing way.  In a way that affects our family. I am not talking a couple days here and there... I am talking FULL TIME. Sometimes he will leave on a Sunday evening...
This isn’t a post with a list of generic Father’s Day gifts, good for just any dad. Those lists are great if you need to find a quick, last minute gift, or you're looking for something for the father-in-law...
This morning when I heard my daughter stirring, I entered her room and gave her a big smile. I cheerfully said, "Good morning!" Rather than smiling and reaching for me, as she always has, she looked over my shoulder....
I am the wife of an Adams County Deputy Sheriff. My husband is different. He changed. I knew this job would change him, but I didn't know it would change me, too. I was 8 months pregnant with our first child...
We have a toddler.  He travels. The kitchen is a mess.  The dog has a vet appointment.  Laundry needs to be done.  I am tired.   The list goes on and on and on.  At times I feel like we can barely manage the small tasks...
Marriage is so weird, y’all. Am I right? You just have this one other person that you’ve decided to do life with. And you live with them in all of their weirdness, everyday, rain or shine. They annoy you by...
Before I became a flight attendant, the only thing I knew about them was that they served drinks and peanuts. My access to seeing one in person was limited to the three or four flights. I thought the job was...
As a relatively new mom (I'm only 18-months into this and still learning a lot), I have wondered how other parents had achieved this infamous “date night” I'd kept hearing about. The only time we've had a night out...
Saying goodbye to the big city isn’t something I envisioned doing. My husband and I couldn’t wait to leave the little town we grew up in, and we were ready to see what Denver had to offer! To explore,...
My daughter was 22-months-old when I wanted to become a single mom. I felt as though it would be easier than what I had been enduring... For the first year of her life, my husband was chopped liver to my...
It's no secret that being a parent is hard work. I see post after post on my newsfeed about the struggles of motherhood. Heck, I even write for a blog that shares the challenges and triumphs of raising little...
My son, I’ve done something wrong. I’ve done a lot of things wrong. Truth is most days, my sweet boy, I don’t know what it is I’m supposed to be doing. Yet somehow tomorrow we will have made one trip...
When I look in the mirror, I don't recognize myself these days. I look dull, shabby, tired. Maybe it's being spit up on daily by an 8-month-old, non-napping, not interested in solids, teething baby, but I feel like I...
