coming home

My kids have learned over the years that home is simply where you lay your head. When you travel for a couple of months at a time, it just makes it easier. Still, there is something so refreshing about returning to the place where your bed belongs to none other than you.We returned home last Wednesday, but we didn’t just return to our own beds ....more

Capturing Fireworks: Long-Exposure Photography

One of my fondest childhood memories involve our small Texas town's all-day 4th of July activities at the ballpark. It seemed like everyone drove the dusty road that dead ended into the baseball fields for the celebrations. Baseball, three-legged races, watermelon seed spitting contests—there was always lots to do. As the sun went down, everyone, with their sun-kissed faces, made their way to watch the fireworks show....more

geocaching in london

So we've been quite the boring tourists here in England. Truth be told, I was exhausted when I arrived on UK soil. Two months of galavanting all over the place with your kids might sound glamorous and fun, but it's taken a heavy toll on me this time, and I wasn't expecting it ....more

sleep sweet, my little one {giveaway}

I think parents could all agree that sleep can be one of the most challenging aspects of parenthood in the beginning. From crying newborns to toddlers who would rather sleep with Mom and Dad, not only are parents exhausted, but children are not so sure that sleeping by themselves is such a good idea. Any and all resources are usually very welcomed ....more
