May you have a little piece of adult-only time in your week ahead, and may you not feel an ounce of guilt in relishing it.
Child-free time. Goodness me, I love the [tiny, dinosaur-adorned] socks off my boys, but let’s not be under any illusions that any of us can have a healthy mind without a little bit of it. May you have a little piece of adult-only time in your week ahead, and may you not feel an ounce of guilt in relishing it.

"Once you have mastered a technique,
you hardly need look at a recipe again
and can take off on your own."

- Julia Child
Once you know how to make this one dough, there are so many recipe opportunities!
Did you know that the dough used to make this lovely, savory, braided bread is the same brioche I use to make my lime-cream-cheese breakfast bread? It is! Once you know how to make this one dough, there are so many recipe opportunities! Want to know a secret? The cream cheese filling for the breakfast bread will be the same filling used in the cream cheese and blueberry galette I’ll be posting later this week. Master a technique or two and you can truly go off on your own!

Slowing Down

Do you ever get the sense that life is telling you to slow down? I’ve always struggled with trying to keep up and do all the things.

So yesterday at work when a massive cupboard door literally came off its hinges and fell right into my head, I took it as a sign (after tending to my headache and huge goose egg on my face). It definitely got me thinking about the bigger things in life: What if it had been worse? What would I have done? What if I had a really bad head injury? How would I work? How would I be a mom?
Gosh, life is too precious to waste my days trying to keep up. Trying to do all the things. Who cares if my home isn’t perfectly styled or if my kids are wearing clothes with stains? Really, those little things don’t matter.

I’ve cried, I’ve laughed, I’ve screamed, I’ve felt guilty, I’ve needed space, I’ve needed all his love. It’s definitely a roller coaster of emotions.
This season of motherhood has been a hard one since Atticus is in his "terrible twos". I’ve cried, I’ve laughed, I’ve screamed, I’ve felt guilty, I’ve needed space, I’ve needed all his love. It’s definitely a roller coaster of emotions. In the midst of all the crazy, I love our relationship, I love his personality, I love our jokes, I love who he is.

Another day, another sink full of dishes to clean
and basket full of laundry to fold.
