How I’ve Created a Better Home Work Environment

Our apartment is quite spacious, but it’s not huge as far as square footage is concerned. Knowing this, I didn’t foresee any problems with our standard WiFi connection.

Unfortunately, I was very wrong!!

Our complex is apparently in an area notorious for its poor reception, so imagine my disappointment when I couldn’t get adequate service throughout our entire place. This is not conducive for my work-from-home needs, and it’s the last thing I wanted to be worried about in the midst of juggling family life and my business.  

This is where TP-Link’s new Deco M5 Whole-Home Wi-Fi System comes in!

What Motherhood Means To…Beth

Motherhood to me is one of the most important and fulfilling aspects of my life. I mother with my whole heart and fiercely try to remember the gifts that have been placed in my life.

Our journey into motherhood was not the easiest, yet, without making light of what we went through, I now understand why all the events needed to fall the way they did. It has given me a stronger purpose to be their mom.

A Precious Moments Easter + Giveaway!

Easter is mere days away, and it seems everyone is in preparation mode. In this household there will be gift baskets, egg decorating, a special dinner menu, and we’ll be attending the (extra packed) church service this weekend.

All things I look forward to, but I’ve also been in search of ways to better emphasize the importance of this holiday to my girls.

Don’t get me wrong, bunnies and treats and egg hunts are fun, but as a celebration of the day Jesus rose from the dead, Easter means so much more. It symbolizes forgiveness, rebirth, and God’s saving power!!

It’s a time to contemplate, mourn and rejoice, and this year my girls and I have been reading My Easter Bible Storybook by Precious Moments to help illustrate what this day is truly all about.

A Guilt-Free Treat with VitaTops™ MuffinTops

It’s official. Spring has sprung!

This means beautiful blooms, allergy attacks, unpredictable weather, baseball season (Go Giants!!), and of course, the yearly race to get swimsuit ready. 

Did anyone else kinda cringe a bit at that last one?

Ugh.

I’m not thrilled with where my body is these days, but If you’ve followed me for any length of time you’ll know that I’ve been trying my best to remain consistent in my workouts. Not just for pool days, but to establish and maintain a healthier lifestyle in general and set a good example for my girls.

One area that is a struggle for me is snack-time. I want something easy, quick AND delicious, and I usually have a craving for something sweet. ‘Healthy’ isn’t always the first requirement, when I’m scrambling for something at the last minute, but I’ve finally found a great option with VitaTops™ MuffinTops!

I’m 5 Now!

My Dearest Alexandra,

It’s been a couple weeks but I still can’t believe you’re 5! This is a major milestone to me, and it seems to be significant for you as well. 

I’ve heard you enthusiastically exclaim “I’m 5 now!” to anyone with ears to hear. Whether it be friends, family or strangers, you’re proud to be this age and you want everyone to know it.
