Favorite Things Friday: Dreaming of My Dream Kitchen as a #TestDriveMoms

Dreaming of A New Kitchen Frigidaire Test Drive Moms

Do you have a room in your house that you hate? A room that you try to ignore as much as possible because it kills you that this atrocity lives in your house? For me, that room is our kitchen.

Meeting Inspiring Women at Leading Moms

Leading Moms Speakers posterOne of my favorite things about being a blogger is the incredible women I get to meet on a consistent basis, many of whom are mothers. I’ve been profoundly changed with the birth of each of my children.

Sharing Summer SmilesSummer is coming to an end. SERIOUSLY. Where did the time go? I think every summer goes faster than the one the year before. We had so many grand plans for the summer that somehow got away from us. Having weekly date nights on our back porch after the kids went to bed.
