I have an exciting announcement to make! We are moving! Or we will be. Eventually. When our house is finished. Yes, we decided to jump on the crazy train and build a house. Ok, let me give you some backstory here. When my husband transitioned to working from home last August we quickly realized that … More Our new house: part 1 (hurry up and wait)
We’ve just about made it through the mad dash of May with all of its celebrations, graduations, and other endings.

This past weekend we attended three birthday parties in addition to … More Mama Musings: How do I care for my soul during a season of busyness?
