Five Days in Berlin

Thursday, February 28, 2019

There are few pleasures in my life that I treasure more than the opportunity to travel. I love exploring new places and learning about different cultures. Travel teaches us so much and my latest voyage abroad was no different.

I was recently in Berlin for five days with friends. One of my best friends moved there with her family and two of my other best friends were in Europe for work. So clearly, the only logical thing for me to do was to travel to Germany and join them. I will always say yes to travel adventures.


The Manic & Magic of Motherhood

Let her sleep, for when she wakes, she will move mountains - or cause her Mother to lose her mind - either way, let her sleep.

Being a mom is the greatest thing I have ever done. It is also the hardest. Much harder than I anticipated. How two little children can be, and rule, my world all at the same time astonishes me.

I don’t think we share enough about the trenches of parenthood. At least I know that I don't. I worry about what people will think. But the truth is that I find parenting extremely challenging at times. I've lost my temper much too quickly and have screamed at my children when they didn't listen. I've sat crying on the floor just trying to get two little feet into two little shoes. I’ve wanted to bang my head against the wall after my child gets out of bed for the zillonth time. Parenting is hard.
