A fellow mom in my neighborhood recently organized an informative Girl’s Night at her house. In addition to the usual snacks and drinks, she also invited a few of our local police officers (contracted by our neighborhood HOA) to come and share a few safety tips with all of us, in preparation for the…(Read More)

It’s officially December, which means we’ve all officially made it (roughly) halfway through the school year. Yay for us! And if we are completely honest with ourselves, we can probably admit that our precious snowflakes’ teachers (God bless ‘em) are in need — or getting pretty dang close to being in need — of a…(Read More)

When I think about comfort food, I always think of Italian food. Probably because I am part Italian, and probably because I am always thinking about Italian food. Hashtag, let’s be real. Seriously guys, is there anything more delicious (or more comforting) than a plate of warm pasta on a cool, Fall/Winter day…(Read More)

I thought I knew what surviving on little to no sleep felt like. I survived college, for goodness sakes — managed to graduate with honors, and even have a little fun. But let me be brutally honest here. There is no tired like “new mama tired.” And don’t even get me started on the exhaustion…(Read More)

Fall has always been one of my favorite seasons. Especially in Montana. I am convinced there is nowhere on Earth quite like Montana in the Fall. Wouldn’t you agree? (Minus the freak snow storm, of course. Just kidding! You know you love it.) We thought it would be fun to put together a Fall…(Read More)

Oh Fall, how we’ve missed you. With your cool, crisp temperatures, and your beautiful falling foliage — you are the stuff of entirely too-long-summer dreams. Don’t even get me started on the scarves, the boots, and the chunky sweaters. (You won’t be able to shut me up!) And yes, I am…(Read More)
