My Dirt
tween survival kit playtex

    I feel like I’m on a roller coaster slowly trudging up the first steep hill in a rickety little, one person car. It’s scary going up that hill. I don’t know what the top will be like or how long the ride will last or whether I’ll be terrified and close my eyes the whole time or if … Continue reading


Hey, it’s tattoo tuesday – Happy Birthday to me! Today is my 38th birthday. Gulp. I am 2 very short years away from the big 4-Oh and plan on enjoying every second. I don’t dread turning 40, in fact, I welcome it. I’ve been loving the happiness I get from my blog and the people I’ve met since starting it. … Continue reading

Dear Mom, You did a great job

My mother passed away when I was 13 years old. It wasn’t sudden. She knew that she would not live to see me graduate high school or get married. My mother had been sick for most of my life and a single parent to my little brother and me. Now that I am a mother and I am 1 year … Continue reading


  As a blogger, influencer and social media manager, I’m always looking for new ways to hone my skills, especially in this rapidly changing social world. Later this month I’ll be driving over the mountains and heading to Kelowna, BC to attend a brand new conference called Roam. I prefer to call Roam the un-conference actually. Roam is a social … Continue reading


I am a liar. That is probably the most truth you’ll read in this entire post. It’s shocking to me how many times in a day I’ll tell myself a little lie just to get me thru the day. It’s a bit of an addiction at this point. I decided to write some of them down and confess them to … Continue reading


She’s my oldest but she’s still my baby. I choke every time I refer to her as a tween, gulp, on the verge of teen-hood. I can’t keep her from growing up much longer and I don’t want to force her to give up her youth too soon but the fact is that she’s already in middle school, her body … Continue reading


A place to call home. It’s nothing like what I imagined it would be. Once upon a time my dream house was all laid out on paper with professional designs and all the bells and whistles you could dream of. Appliance garages, his and hers walk-in closets with an accessory vault, wine cave, library balcony, butler pantry, blah, blah, blah. … Continue reading

best quotes from The Unbreakable Kimmie Schmidt

Hitting the treadmill on a chilly raining spring day is a necessary evil but give me my iPad and my headphones and I can run all day long…well not all day but for an hour or 2 Kimmie Schmidts for sure. I cannot get enough of this show which is a brand new, original series from Netflix. I’ve just finished … Continue reading


I just realized that in mid February, I was ‘officially’ 3 years cancer free. Pretty amazing considering the last few months have been a roller coaster of lumps and tests and needles and stitches. I know the last time I updated about my health it was with a huge sigh of relief that my oncologist’s hasty diagnosis of a relapse of … Continue reading

beach waves kids

Lets be honest, Hawaii can make anyone happy. Forget Disneyland, Hawaii is the happiest place on earth, people and I found, that without question, Hawaii makes happy kids.   Life gets simpler. Everything is on “island time”. I get lots of sleep (this is key). The vitamin D tank is filled to the brim. Everything is good. Our time on … Continue reading
