“Let Me Hold the Baby” & Other Sexy Things My Husband Says

Monday, July 20th, 2015

He came in from a long day of work and took his boots off by the front door. I was standing in the living room trying to fold the clothes with one arm while holding a baby with the other. Our oldest two had abandoned the Disney Junior show that they were watching, and had…

To My Husband: Now That You Are Daddy

Friday, June 19th, 2015

  When we were dating, I liked to imagine what you would be like as a daddy someday. You would do something funny, and I would think, “Awww. See. He’s going to be such a fun dad.” Or you would do something purposefully kind, and I would say to myself, “Yes! He’s going to be…

Sunday, April 26th, 2015

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…

Thursday, April 16th, 2015

“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…

Have You Seen This Couple? (They’re Not Missing)

Friday, April 10th, 2015

I remember waiting by the window for Jared to show up for our date. I was ready early (a shocking truth for anyone who knows me now.) It was going to be our last date before I packed up and went back to school across the state leaving our summer romance behind. I always wondered…

Tuesday, February 10th, 2015

Here is my disclaimer, friends. This article is not PG rated. It might make you blush. It will probably stir some feelings of either strong agreement, or perhaps strong defense, but no matter how you feel by the end of this, I need you to know one thing going in… If I didn’t care, I…

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. Honestly, it felt a little magical. I think that Christmas has a way of making everything feel special. Jared picked me up and drove…

Save a Little Love For Me

Friday, October 24th, 2014

He grabs his boots, or his briefcase, or his suitcase – and He’s headed off to work. She’s busy making breakfast for the little ones already awake. The cereal spills across the kitchen floor just as the baby monitor lights up. Someone else needs her too. She pours milk into the bowl, steps over the…

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. The mall always has music playing… but it wasn’t some romantic ballad. It was just a regular Wednesday at work. I worked at a kiosk…

For All That You Are and Ever Will Become

Friday, August 1st, 2014

My husband doesn’t like cantaloupe. I know this probably doesn’t sound like a big deal, but I was pretty surprised. A few months ago, as we sat down for dinner, I crammed a fork into freshly sliced cantaloupe and offered my husband a wedge. “Here. I just sliced this. It’s really sweet. Do you want…

Tuesday, July 29th, 2014

“Momma?” “Yeah, buddy?” I stood in the doorway of his bedroom. He was tucked into his twin sized bed, and his little sister was tucked into hers across the room. My husband and I had already told bedtime stories and prayed. I was giving my final hugs before I said goodnight when he started his…

Tuesday, June 17th, 2014

Back when my husband and I were first dating, and the world still had a rose-colored tint, I remember walking into the mall with him one day. We were hand in hand as we passed another couple having a very heated disagreement. I looked up at my (then boyfriend) and said, “Do you think we…

Thursday, June 12th, 2014

It was Christmas about four years ago. My nearly one year old little boy had been by my side and around my neck during much of our family gathering. As much as I loved being with him while he experienced his first Christmas, I hadn’t gotten to visit much with family. I found myself thinking…
