Ireland 2018. This is one of my favorite moments of that trip. The beauty of the morning light at Glendoulough. Sometimes to accept what is you have to look at things a bit differently. 2020 definitely has proven to me that you have to look at things from different angles, before you can accept them. […]

A Word for 2020

Word of the year time . As in past years I have selected a word to be my guide post for what I want to make happen this year. Unlike previous years, where I have been able to narrow it down to one word, this year I have selected two words, that work in tandem […]

Middle School Friendship

The middle years are the toughest on girls. It’s when you start to define who you are, and it’s not always easy. Everyone is trying to figure who they are and how that fits as a part of a bigger picture. As part of this process, girls could be friendly one minute and not so […]

Disney Dreams…

Growing Pains….

I love being a Mom and having more than one child is, mostly, a blessing.  However, it does mean I am often navigating kids through two different stages at the same time.  As one passes out of a phase/stage, the other is starting that cycle over again.   I know that the flow varies, but the […]

Coats Optional..

Love this image. It was taken on a chilly morning as we waited for the bus just outside of Saint Stevens Green in Dublin.  It was one of the few times in recent memory that coats were NOT considered optional by my children. Coats my son feels are optional. He wears it when and only […]

Where has the time gone….

  I think it’s time I dusted off the blog.  I had great visions of this becoming a way to share life – and both the good and sometimes not so great about being a 21st Century mom.  The bonus – or so it seemed at the time – was that I would document the […]

It’s beginning to look like Christmas!

It’s starting to look like Christmas here!  It’s just as good a time as any to start blogging again, so I thought I would just jump in. Each year I try to do something nice for my children’s teachers, after all it’s not always an easy job, and I am very grateful for those who […]
