Don't stop believin'....Hold on to that feelin'... Do you believe in life after love...I feel something inside me say...I really don't think you're strong enough...… Continue reading Believe in Music

Proud Moments via Samsung Galaxy

If you have read my post Limbo you know that I struggle with taking time out for myself. The second problem I have is that when I do take time for myself I generally do not enjoy it to the max because I feel guilty about not being present for my family. This is something I have… Continue reading Proud Moments via Samsung Galaxy

Stirrin’ Up Some Trouble

Last Sunday was a day spent in the kitchen making memories. Taylor and I made multiple batches of cupcakes and frosting from scratch. We love cooking, baking and tasting everything we make!

If I Would Have Known…

If I could give a list to my younger self...although in all honesty I probably wouldn't have listened anyways. Don't get so busy making everyone around you happy that you forget to make yourself happy. It is not your job to fix everyone's problems It is okay to say 'No' and not over extend yourself… Continue reading If I Would Have Known…

Under the Surface

The TRIGGER. It brings buried experiences to the surface. I know it's not you. It's me. It wasn't you. It was him. It happened so long ago. My body remembers.

Guilty Cafe via Samsung Galaxy

With many new restaurants I try to give them a few chances before I form an opinion about them. So when a new cafe opened in Waunakee and was on the news talking about their sweets I knew I had to make it a point to visit and check it out. After three visits here… Continue reading Guilty Cafe via Samsung Galaxy

Criminally Cute

The 8th Annual DeForest Public Safety Family Fun Night (quite a mouthful) was a fun learning experience for Taylor and a great mother-daughter night. The last few years we have missed this event due to dance and my illness. I am so glad we were able to make it this year. What a great event!… Continue reading Criminally Cute
