Unsurprisingly there has been a flurry of blog posts this past week declaring whether their family believes in Santa or not. Some moms feel like encouraging kids believing in Santa is part of the magic and wonder of childhood while others (and others) don’t want to lie to their kids. Both Stone and I grew [...]
I’ve invited a series of guest posters to contribute as we welcome the newest member of our family. Please welcome the wise words of Kelly who blogs over at Sage Tribe. You know that feeling- that one that sometimes starts out because of something small- maybe a stubbed toe, a hang nail, or a mean look- and it [...]
These two boys have come along way these past few months. They had to hang tight while we launched a new business this past spring and they bared with me while I had a mama meltdown. They really had to fend for themselves when I injured my hip and needed bed rest the last three [...]

Hello Friends. I’ve been m.i.a. this week. Stone’s parents have been visiting his sister in Cali and on their cross-country drive home they swung by our neck of the woods to share some good family loving with us. We are blessed to have wonderful family and both the boys were very happy to see their [...]
