Growing up, I was that kid who always had her nose in a book. Apparently, I begged my mom to teach me to read when I was five years old, but I had to take speech therapy first so I could actually say the sounds correctly. Once I did learn, I couldn’t stop. During my…

When we first moved into the Palmer House and divided up the bedrooms, Samantha got the smaller of two. But what it doesn’t have in extra square footage, it makes up for in gorgeous light. And I’m all about the gorgeous light. For the last year we’ve had Samantha and Caleb sharing a room while…

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…

Target is one of those stores that seems to have read your diary in anticipation of each shopping trip. Every time I go in there something else leaps off the shelf and into my cart. And that $1-$3 dollar spot at the very front? Dangerous! Two weeks ago I went in with the vague notion…

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…

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!
