Forest ABC’s Free Printable

We start preschool today, and I am so. ready. I love my little zoom Bug, but we’re both happier when she has a little play time with other kids! We’ve been really focusing on learning the alphabet lately, but she is just too darn creative. It has been both a blessing and a curse. In terms of learning The ABC’s, it most certainly has been the latter. Her alphabet goes something along the lines of “A, B, C, D, E, X, Y, ZEEEEEE! B! Ellemeno PEEEEEE!” Whenever I try to tell her that she has to sing them in a certain order, I get met with a lot of opposition...

You’re so weird. I like that!

WeirdoHeader-01

I remember somebody once signed my year book. “You’re really weird, but I like you anyway!” ๐Ÿ™ I dont know if I was more offended or hurt. A) I was weird..annnnd the connotation behind that isn’t a positive one. ย And B) apparently being weird usually makes people unlikable. As I have matured (like a good aged cheese) I have realized that my weirdness is what sets me apart in the best of ways. I’ve found people like me and I love my little weirdo tribe! I wouldn’t trade my weirdies for the world! Because these are the people that are happy! These are the people who know who they are...

Do you really like Razzmatazz?

Insagood JULY -13

  Recently I have had a lot of fun and unique opportunities. As I try to decide which ones I want to take, I do what every business woman does. I talk to my mom! Now, I don’t mean to brag, but my mom pretty much rocks. She’s been in the fabric biz for most of my life and knows a thing or two about running a successful business. Are you ready to hear what she told me? Do you have you pen and paper ready for notes? Sometimes you don’t know what you want. Sometimes you don’t know what you’re good at. Life has a lot more ? than...

Today I did something amazing!

Today is the Day by Spotted Pepper Designs

Today, I wore a bathing suit. In this pale new mom bod that I am still learning how to love. I love my body, I really do. It has done some amazing things. It’s held up to some strong endurance sports. It’s carried all my babies. It’s fed those babies. It’s felt love and happiness. It eats tacos. I really like tacos. ย It’s also done some really bad things. It fell off a wall once. Like 7 years ago. And I still walk with a limp. It has bailed out on supporting a few pregnancies. Apparently, my blood likes to form clots, so I can’t sit for longer than 2-4...

Be Still My Soul (a coloring book)

Be still My Soul: A printable adult coloring book for the LDS faith.

This last year has been full of some really rough stuff. We’ve lost babies, gone through fertility treatments, had our daughter diagnosed with JRA, surgeries, moved to a new state, ย took out a ton of student loans, pregnancy complications, health problems with our dog, ย financial stress and more… It’s been hard! I’ve cried more than my fair share, and been lifted up by the loving arms of friends and family on many occasions.   As I searched desperately for a way to relieve my stress, I found Jude, my friend Leisha’s unborn baby boy. ย Jude had a multitude of health problems and was born premature. After a good fight, he...

When Winter turns to Spring

Inspired by Asland from "The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe" by C.S. Lewis, this pen and ink drawing shows the complexity of winter before the beauty of spring.

  ย โ€œWrong will be right, when Aslan comes in sight, At the sound of his roar, sorrows will be no more, When he bares his teeth, winter meets its death, And when he shakes his mane, we shall have spring again.โ€ โ€• C.S. Lewis, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe  ...
