The way you treat people says more about you than your words do

You can learn more about a person by observing the way they treat others than you can in an hour-long one-to-one conversation. This is true both in personal and professional relationships. The way a person treats a stranger, particularly someone in the service industry, is highly indicative of the way they will treat you as a friend, loved one, employee, ... Read More »

Finding her place in the world

We all long for our children to find their “people” – you know the ones – the group of kids they can laugh with, share inside jokes with, and who will pick them up when they’ve had a bad day.  It wasn’t long ago, I was lamenting the space my eldest girl was in. She was clearly unhappy, feeling like ... Read More »

14 Days of Love

Since Valentine’s Day is mine and Jon’s anniversary, I try to be really intentional about making the day special for K & K.  Rather than simply giving them regular cards & gifts, this year I decided to leave a valentine on their door every night leading up to Valentine’s Day with one thing we love about them.

Adventures in Dish Soap Making – 1st Try

In my ever evolving quest to being more domestic and environmentally responsible, I’ve recently decided to start making as many of our cleaning products at home.  I already use mostly green products (ie. white vinegar, baking soda, washing soda) to clean our house since the girls were so sensitive when they were younger, but I’ve always dished out the extra ...

Fall in the HC

Fall Break in Charleston

Today the girls and I arrived in heaven.  Well, the Southern equivalent.  Seriously. Charleston is a Southern Girl’s Mecca. Close your eyes.  Go on…I’m gonna wait until you do it. … …. Okay now, imagine Southern charm, gorgeous historic buildings, melt in your mouth Southern delicacies (like huge homemade cupcakes), and your favorite small people. (Hey! How did you read ...

The moments we miss

You know, today I took my girls to another Open House at Cburg … but it wasn’t just another Open House.  Because despite the semi-sweet smell of  the new Kindergarten parents – all sweaty and eager to make the best first impression possible(no judging, I was there last year) – and the shine of the freshly painted & waxed floors ...
