Music Monday – Three Songs That Move Me

Music Monday from HeadandForToday

It’s Music Monday here on my blog. My friend Miko from over at Miko Knows asked me last week, “What are three songs that will always move you?” She didn’t put any rules on it so they could be old-school, new-school, religious, secular, anything that moved you. The first two came so easy to me but the third I had to think about just a little longer. For me, music brings back memories of that era in life when I was listening to that song, not just the good but also the bad. I remember who my … [Read more...]

My #TurkeySelfie – Cooking a Perfect Turkey in Three Steps

My Turkey Selfie: Cooking a Perfect Turkey in Three Steps -

It’s almost Turkey time! Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays because it’s relatively low-stress once you finish your menu and/or travel plans. I love being able to gather with family and friends, especially when I’m not doing to the cooking. Every family must have a story of the holiday gone wrong. Mine was when I was pregnant with our oldest and the first Thanksgiving that we hosted friends in our newly purchased house…I cooked the turkey and it looked beautiful BUT wasn’t fully done. … [Read more...]

Thankful for Travel and Creating Memories – #OshKoshKids

Elmo Tuck-In at Beaches Resort

I’ve been counting the things I’m thankful for this month and I have to most certainly count our travels among them. I love our travels because they allow me to truly focus on my family in that moment and capture memories that will last a lifetime. While most of my children’s clothes hold special memories to me, these OshKosh B’Gosh pajamas are going to have even more memories because of our experience with them. Our big highlight from our trip to Turks and Caicos last month was the … [Read more...]

Thankful for Friends

Thankful for Friends

There’s this article floating around the Internet about showing up for your friends and I’m thankful for the circle of people who surround my husband and I as friends.  We're lucky enough that we have both old friends and new friends both groups of whom I'm so incredibly thankful for. Since we were in college at the same time, my husband and I are part of this huge interconnected web of friends with tons of coincidences in between. My husband and I actually did not really know each other … [Read more...]

Thanks to Blogging…

What feels like a long time ago (but was really only two years ago), I started this blog. You can read my first post here and I forgot it was written on March 4 day. What I didn’t forget is that it was written from my husband’s bedside in a Neurological Intensive Care Unit. I started my blog because I wanted to share information that I found helpful with others. I’m not sure exactly what I thought I’d be doing and what I was in for. I think I knew that bloggers could get things but that’s not … [Read more...]

#THXBirthControl – My Thanks

Thanks Birth Control 2

It’s the season for thanks and I’m so happy to say #THXBirthControl. It might seem like a weird thing to be thankful for but I am very happy to say “Thanks Birth Control” today. I’m going to be totally transparent and say I would love to support abstinence only programs but the data says that 95% of Americans had premarital sex. To not share information in light of this fact would be irresponsible. I believe in supporting strong families/communities and see preventing unwanted pregnancies … [Read more...]
