What Should I Read Next

by Stacey

About a year ago, I discovered podcasts and became immediately hooked. I have quite a few favorites including, Modern Mrs. Darcy‘s What Should I Read Next. I have read Anne Bogel’s Modern Mrs. Darcy‘s blog for years and love her book recommendations. We have very similar tastes. Therefore, you can imagine how excited I was […]

5 Things I Learned in June

by Stacey

Inspired by the amazing Modern Mrs. Darcy. 1. I miss writing in this space.  I’m becoming a bit like a broken record with this but here it is again. I have not been consistent here and I miss it. 2. The Kale Broccoli Salad from Trader Joe’s with grilled chicken makes me like salads for […]

And Now She Is Ten

by Stacey

I have been quiet in this space lately. As the girls get older it is harder and harder to decide what to write publicly. My life still circles around theirs but we are beginning to write our own stories. More and more, it is important for them to decide what becomes public and what doesn’t. […]

The Books of My Life

by Stacey

The best part of blogging (and the part I miss the most when I take breaks) are the relationships that come from writing. I can’t remember when I first got to know Allie of The Latchkey Mom but it’s been awhile. I love traveling vicariously on Allie’s family road trips and I get a little teary […]
