About
I am a 30-something mother of three young girls and a sweet little boy who tries to get through her day with more smiles & laughter than drama and tears. I am not a perfect mom or wife. I yell and can assure you my house isn't always clean. I try to remind myself that I cannot do it all. I am a wife to my awesomely supportive husband, Kevin, who is an active duty Coast Guard officer. He is an amazing daddy to our children and I couldn't ask for a better daddy or husband.

  • My first half marathon
    on Oct 2, 2012 in Family Life Me Exercise Love
    Never in a million years did I ever think I would run a half marathon. I think back to where I was 2.5 years ago, twenty pounds heavier, in horrible shape and struggling to run for 60 seconds straight. I thought I was going to die, but I kept going.

    From the moment we made the decision to move back home to Maine, we started planning how we will fit four children into two bedrooms, one of which is fairly small. We decided it would be best to keep the three girls together and let Prince Callum hav...

  • Add another to the list?... or maybe not?Friday morning we finally had a fairly "successful" morning with Mairead. She ate her breakfast so well she made the morning bus! I have to admit, I enjoyed Friday morning. I put my baby girl on the school bus and continued to have a gloriously lazy...

  • I am not ready for this...You never think when you give birth to a child time will fly by and you will soon be putting that baby on a school bus. In the beginning the days and nights seem to mix together, and you just want sleep. You just want them to sleep more, eat more, do...
