You Know You're a Mom When...
I was hiding eggs for an Easter egg hunt and I stood back to admire my work, put my hands on my hips, and then was like, "What the...?" as I slowly reached around to my butt and found a baby bib stuck to it. Being half asleep at work, daydreaming about my n...

Throwback Thursday: A Year Ago
Writing prompt: Throwback Thursday Today I'm looking back at last April, because it feels like ages ago and so much feels different now. Looking back... I was reeling from a second failed adoption match. I needed a big change, a distraction, something to fi...

Lost the Desire to Blog
I've been wanting to pull back from posting things out on the Internet for everyone to see. I value my privacy more now than I ever have before. Too many people read my blog from my personal life and I don't like not being able to control who sees what. I n...

Post-Placement & Finalization
Those first few weeks after we brought Shak home were 1) exhausting and 2) emotionally complicated. We hung in there and knew they'd pass. And they did. It got much easier once we processed some things and recognized where some things were coming from. For ...

"Finding Zoe": Book Review
I read a book, yall. It's a miracle! I rarely have the time these days, but I'm trying to make time. I forget how much I love reading until I force myself to open a book... and then get sucked in. It's really about me not making time for myself in general, ...
