Today is my anniversary, and although it’s Motivational Monday and I would usually be here sharing some words of motivation to get the week started, I’d like to take a break from the regularly scheduled programming for this week to take a second (or twenty minutes) to gush about the beautiful man I share my life with.

I’m feeling pretty useless as a Mum at the moment and I’m not really sure where to go from here. Alex, my 7 year old, is having a hard time. He is kind, sweet, loving, generous, sensitive and unbelievably thoughtful, until he’s not. On the flip side of all of this amazing, he can be… Read More
Sometimes, no matter how much you love each other, the stresses of life, of kids, of broken down cars or leaky ceilings get a little too much and the distance between you seems to grow and grow until you’re at a point where you’re not sure you’re on the same page any more, let alone in the same book.

I spend a fair amount of time home alone with a 1 and a half year old. Sometimes I don’t get the chance to shower until 3pm and sometimes while I’m in there, my thoughts are so profound, they deserve to be shared.
Aaaaaand then, sometimes they’re a list of the perks of a mum bun. Read More
