This past spring my mom, fondly known as Grandmom, came up for a visit in between school sessions. She was able to stay for just over a week and as always, it wasn’t nearly long enough. Mom has visited a total of four times and each time we’ve done something new and different. This time, the…

(Yes. This is a post about THAT. But it’s actually helpful and not gross, I promise!) At one point or another, we’ve probably all had that unwelcome house guest. You know, that person that comes for just “just a few days” and end up stays for what seems like forever. At first, we don’t mind…

We sent our our Christmas Cards with the saying “Best.Year.Ever.” and oh, boy, was it true! 2015 was the year of adventures, of getting out of our comfort zone, of trying new things, of friends and family, travels, joining the league of homeschoolers, and so much more. It was a year filled with many, many…

This morning, my desk accurately reflects the current state of my life. Stacks of bills to pay, orders buried under correspondence, recipes to go over for Thanksgiving, even more recipes to enter into my new favorites cookbook, and receipts to put into the monthly budget. The wind has chapped my lips something awful and I…

Some days are awesome. Some days are awkward. Some days are a bit of both. In either case there are some things that are just too good (or awful) not to share. AWKWARD 1. The word “awkward” and feeling like a squawking bird whenever I say it aloud. Especially if my tongue gets all twisted…

It seems that one of those inevitable truths of life is that if your morning goes awry, it’s hard to reclaim the rest of your day. Rough mornings throw off your groove, to borrow the phrase. Having a plan usually makes a morning run smoother but even the best of plans can still leave you…

Once I hit puberty, I became what’s known as chubby. I just couldn’t lose my baby fat from childhood. Even as I developed curves, I stayed chunky and just never felt very good about myself. Following a breakup (my first and only) when I was 18, I decided to concentrate on myself and get into…

I have a not-so-secret confession to make: I LOVE TO READ. Ever since my childhood, I haven’t gone anywhere without having a book stuffed in my purse. Even a one-hour commute to church meant at least five or six chapters progressed in the storyline. As a wife, mother, housewife, and business owner, my free time…

Hello Friends

Hey there, I'm Megan, a Southern girl married to an Eskimo, living in an igloo in Alaska. Okay, so it's not really an igloo, but we have built one for fun! Still, our little home is filled with life and laughter, kids and a dog. And I share those gimpses into our life, the horror stories and the most wonderful adventures, here on my little corner of the internet. I love connecting with fellow moms and sharing our stories with one another. So from me to you, welcome!
