Thoughts This Mother’s Day

Artwork by: Venice Happy Mother’s Day, Mommas! I know it has been a bit since we have connected so I wanted to take a moment to explain our brief hiatus.  Recently, I lost two very dear friends to me.  I loved them like family and it has taken me a while to process their passing.  I have run the gamut of emotion and what I have come away from it all with is as follows.

Highs and Lows

Happy Friday, Mommas! I don’t know about you but this week has crawled by for me and I am sure the rest of my household would agree.  I feel like the list of things to do with a third child has not only tripled but quadrupled.  In fact,  I will go as far as saying whatever comes after quadrupled would be an adequate description regarding the increase in the amount of shit that needs to get done.

Men who cook: Turkey Chili 🌶

Turkey Chili By: Danny ( my beautiful chef of a husband) Note: My husband is an excellent cook! Excellent. He spends hours upon hours in the kitchen making sure the flavors are perfection. I would argue any day of the week that cooking is one of his great passions in life and he would argue that feeding his family is his real passion. We could both settle the argument by saying both are true but we are both too stubborn for that;) The passion he has in the kitchen is something to watch! So, this is not a recipe for the quick and easy weekday meal.  This is one to take your time with over the course of a Sunday. But I promise you, it is worth every second! Delicious! Hope you enjoy:)

A day in my life..

I’m over here trying to stay on top of shit like whoah! Here was my day, which began at 1am then 3am and then again at 4am. Savannah isn’t so much a big eater as she is a snacker.  She loves to snack.  Which pretty much means she is attached to my boob all day long.  All. Day. Long.  I am pretty sure I am missing some very important part of the whole breastfeeding process which affords moms the opportunity to do things like pee and eat more than half eaten leftover cereal bars for lunch but for now I am just winging it and this is my life.

An Ode To Love: A Couple Gets Their Wedding Photos Taken 70 Years Later

Seventy years ago in 1946, Ferris and Margaret Romaire were married. As high school sweethearts on a zero-budget, they didn’t have the opportunity to have their wedding photos taken. To prove that it’s never too late to do -well, anything, really- they decided to change that. For their anniversary gift to each other, they had their wedding portraits taken together and the result is the best thing you’ll see all week.   Seeing the energy, love, and dynamic between the two of these crazy kids, I was inspired to find more couples who have withstood the years. I’m just in awe.       Love is hard, no matter what the movies tell you. That’s just the reality. But it’s worth it when you have the right person by your side. Cheers to love.
