Sunday Moment

Scary Women, Confident Daughters and Things I Thought I'd do make up this week's Wednesday Links From Around The Web

Spring Gardening
After weeks of planning, I finally got my Spring Garden in. I had planned to plant everything in early March but that did not happen. On Saturday afternoon, I had a few hours free so instead of cleaning the house (because that is never fun), I decided to sp...

Dear Mom at Mod Pizza
Dear Random Mom at Mod Pizza, It was a brutal week. I quit parenting at least 1000 times. My kids wouldn't let me quit though and kept badgering me to keep working and loving them harder. We saw you on Wednesday night after a harrowing time at the swimming ...

Coconut Lime Cilantro Rice
I've been making this rice for some time. It's super simple, yet packed full of flavor which in our house is a winner. I use this as side for most any meal. It pairs well with tacos, adds a punch to a chicken dish and is a show stopper in a rice bowl. I lov...

Introduction
I am an obsessive knitter, writer, foodie, photographer and Mother who once upon a time worked in social media marketing and public relations. My love for blogging and local reporting drives my desire to write about the latest parenting hotspot, the best place to brunch, where to get the best workout and who has the best local yarn store.
