To My Husband Now That I’m Mommy

A sweet friend of mine had a wedding shower this weekend, and I wasn’t able to make it. It was just one of those things where my husband happened to be working out of town, and there wasn’t anyone who could watch all three of my little ones (even for those few hours.) I was…

“I want to buy you a LBD (little black dress) for our trip to Colorado. Any input?” The text message from my husband flashed across my phone. He was working out of town, and I had just gotten three babies in bed by myself. I was tired. No. I was exhausted. I had been on…

Before He Proposed

Saturday, January 3rd, 2015

It was a crisp, cold December night just a few days before Christmas. My boyfriend suggested that we get dressed up and go to a fancy restaurant. The night felt significant.

Wedding Vows: Now That We are Parents

Tuesday, August 26th, 2014

I woke up this morning and wasn’t concerned about what I would wear to our fancy dinner tonight. I wasn’t worried about finding shoes or jewelry, or making sure that I had plenty of time to get my hair and makeup done. I didn’t look for roses or perfume or expect to see a card…

What I Need My Kids to Know About Finding “The One”

Thursday, August 7th, 2014

When I met your Daddy, there weren’t any sparks. Things didn’t move in slow motion, and we didn’t lock eyes while music played in the background. Actually, that’s not true.
