To All The Friends I’ll Leave Behind

May is Military Appreciation Month and, while I’ve written about it before, this year really has me thinking.  As anyone can guess, it’s not always easy being part of a military family. My husband is often gone, be it for half a year while our children are being born or overnight the exact evening of […]

Making Time For Baby #2: Our ‘My Gym’ Experience

This children’s fitness review is brought to you by My Gym Jacksonville. My two-year-old, Mac, started Mommy and Me classes when he was only 2 months old.

Spring Break Camps In & Around Jacksonville

Even though I feel like I’m still finding random scraps of red and green wrapping paper in corners of my house, people keep insisting that it’s actually almost Spring Break. That’s a problem for me because my toddler’s school breaks for ten long, terrifying days less than two weeks after my husband deploys- and less than a […]

All I Want To Do Is Hate People, Drink Coffee, and Save Animals

Growing up, I had three siblings. Monica, a sister four years my junior; Misti, a small-but-important-step-away-from-feral cat; and Mac-named for Paul McCartney and my Grandaddy-a pit bull/ ehhhhh, questionably American Bulldog mix.
