I don’t know if I’m an expert on road tripping with kids, or just missing a few screws, but I drove almost 10,000 miles with my kids in 2017. Many of those miles I was with Jake or one of my parents, but I’ve driven almost 4,000 miles by myself with a two year old and a four year old.

Thanksgiving is coming. Everybody panic.

We are hosting Thanksgiving in 2 days, so clearly it’s time to clean like a crazy woman and also start a random unrelated and unnecessary home project. Timely office reorganization anyone? I put off any sort of preliminary preparation because we had a full weekend […]

Misadventures of the outdoor mom

It’s been a hot minute since the girls and I went outside and stomped around in the woods, so even though both girls are battling colds we headed out. I’m not going to say it was a mistake, because it was really nice for a […]
