Time. It’s the one thing everyone wants more of and is constantly looking to use efficiently. As a mom of two young boys, a corporate live wire and a bomb wife, I all too often fell into the black hole of feeling down on how I used my time. I never had enough of it and I wasn’t jazzed about what was taking up the time I did have. So, I decided to try and start being smarter with my time and document how I choose to spend it, save it, cherish it and enjoy it. I have always been a voracious reader, and so you’ll see lots of book reviews, lists of books I want to check out and other bookish posts. Dear Lord do I love to eat, so you’ll also see many a post around food – both weight watchers friendly and not. Most of my time revolves around my kids, and so as I uncover TV shows that don’t make me want to put a straw in a full bottle of wine I’ll share those insights as well. To top it off, in 2015 we bought our first home in rural PA and the moment we left closing with the keys we were instantly poor, so we do much of our home improvements ourselves. I love a good sale, a crisp paint tape line and before & after shots, so keep an eye out for a dash of DIY as well.
This blog documents our home life, adventures in parenting and adulting & our favorite ways to blow off some steam and stop to take time for ourselves. We’re thrilled to meet you!
