Being a new mom can be equal parts exciting, terrifying, dreamy, and exhausting. And if you’re not careful, it can be extremely isolating as well. The amount of feelings a new mom can experience in the course of just...
I don't remember ever being overly excited about Thanksgiving. As an only child from a ... let's say ... odd family, I would watch holiday movies with intense interest. Who were these people? How did so many of them...

The Power of Thank You

I have a confession. Up until three years ago, I really hadn't paid that much attention to Veterans Day. As a military brat, I knew about it, of course. I think we got off from school for it when I...
It wasn't an easy decision to move states away from my hometown -- my family, my friends, my life. But my husband and I were content to try something new and spread our wings. There were a lot of great...

  Having the opportunity to be stationed back home in South Carolina where my husband and I both grew up has been such a blessing. Our extended families live close enough to visit for a day trip if we'd like, and we...
When we adopted our second child, we quickly realized that her adoption was not like our first. Our son came home at 9 months and after a short adjustment, fell right into a predictable and happy routine. Our daughter,...
