Another Month Gone?!?

I almost didn't believe my computer when it showed that it has been almost a month since I posted! How is it possible? Where did the time go?

If you're reading this, my guess is you know the feeling. Since my last post we've had croup in our house along with at least three other viruses. We had Valentine's Day and a l-o-n-g President's Day weekend. We have been to several birthday parties and hosted out of town guests. It's also Girl Scout cookie time, so we've got that in the mix. (It took me about 3 hours to warm up after a very chilly cookie booth sale outside of our local Safeway grocery store on Monday!)

So long story short, I know exactly where the time went. It was spent doing what mom's do. I went to basketball games and swim lessons. And even though I spent my fair share of time behind the computer, it's difficult to squeeze in those extra few minutes to do "my thing."

It makes me wonder about the things we give up to be a mom. Some things deserve for us to take the time and they give us more energy and life. Other things are just one more obstacle to being the best we can be. So what are the things that you've given up that you need to take back? What are the things that you've given up that have actually made your life less complicated and more fulfilling?

Give Thanks: Part 4

KEEP READING FOR A GREAT SCENTSY GIVEAWAY! There is so much to be thankful for, it really is hard to decide what will make these next few posts... but today is an ode to my husband. If there is one thing he loves, it's great smells. Although great smells come from great cooking, they also come from great candles. Now with kids around candles can feel a little risky, but then came Scentsy . This is a "flameless" candle which is actually kind of a throw back to the scented wax warmers that used a candle. No candles here, just plug in the warmer and the small light bulb does all the work. I'm a fan of the nightlight sized warmers, but the larger Scentsy warmers are quite lovely. Browse the entire Holiday Collection to find the one perfect for your home or start thinking about gift giving - the combinations are endless! And look at this festive warmer of the month (10% off): But now we need to talk about fragrance! Silver Bells is the fragrance of the month (als

Mom Spot: Progressive Pioneer

Here is another blog I've come across in recent weeks. She has gorgeous pictures and her post yesterday was truly fantastic. "Maine is pretty rainy in the spring.  And I lived in Oregon for awhile and it defines rainy.  So, a little rain rarely puts me in a gray mood.  In fact, this rainy, rainy spring we've been having here in Utah has actually made me feel quite cheerful!  Each rainy day has felt like something of a celebration." Click HERE to read the entire post - you have to see the photographs! You'll also find all kinds of topics on sustainable and simple living. Enjoy!

Psalm 16

This Psalm has been blessing me. I pray it will bless you too. Thanks to BibleGateway.com for making it so easy to share these beautiful words with you. 16  Preserve me, O God, for in you I  take refuge. 2  I say to the  Lord , “You are my Lord;      I have no good apart from you.” 3  As for  the saints in the land, they are the excellent ones,      in whom is all my delight. 4  The sorrows of those who run after another god shall multiply;      their drink offerings of blood I will not pour out      or  take their names on my lips. 5  The  Lord  is  my chosen portion and my  cup;      you hold my  lot. 6  The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;      indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance. 7  I bless the  Lord  who  gives me counsel;      in  the night also my  heart instructs me. 8  I have  set the  Lord  always before me;      because he is at my  right hand, I shall not be  shaken. 9  Therefore my heart is glad, and my  whole being rejoices;      my
