Winter is not my jam. In fact, it’s probably my least favorite season. If it weren’t for the holidays, I’d want to be a bear and hibernate until it passed.

My husband and I lived in Utah for the first part of our marriage and I absolutely hated the snow. I couldn’t wait to leave Utah, and move someplace without the cold, fluffy stuff. It would make it easier to drive, easier to get ready for the day, and less work shoveling. We decided Austin, Texas, looked nice, and we’ve rarely seen snow since. Nine years and two kids later, we still don’t miss the snow, but we do remember how fun and magical it was when we were kids. Last winter, we planned a trip to Utah to visit family for Thanksgiving and hopefully let our kids see their first snow. We arrived at the Salt Lake City airport, rented a car from Alamo Rent A Car, and make our way to Grandma’s house.

There wasn’t any snow on the ground when we got there, but before we left the kids not only got to witness their first snow, but they got to play in it. They happily shoveled it, made snow angels and even went tubing down a big snow hill.

If you’re like me and are not a big fan of winter, let me tell you, planning some fun in the snow does help. Head over to the Alamo Scenic Route and check out my new blog post on the perfect family winter travel bucket list!


In the first days and weeks of finding out I was pregnant I kept the news closer than usual. I told my husband of course… Immediately. Actually, I was out of town working when I found out and I first told him in a text message (more on that later). There were a lot of… read the rest.


Every year it never fails we get Christmas cards from family and friends and enclosed is a letter highlighting their year and I love the reflection back on the highlights of their year. We are always late to send holiday cards but I like to try to do a little reminiscing here. I mean wow,… read the rest.

As I prepared to sit down and write this post a certain gif kept coming to mind. It’s not an accurate depiction of my life. Nothing is burning down. We aren’t falling apart. But it’s how I’ve been feeling inside. To y’all I’m trying to be like “yea, it’s cool, I’m good” but inside I’m… read the rest.


Has this month been a beast or what? I was so excited to run into the holidays only to get knocked down and back with the flu! We finally recovered from that but we’ve been up and down with coughs and runny noses and ear infections. Needless to say it hasn’t been the holly jolly… read the rest.


All morning I’ve had that Alicia Keys and Usher song “My Boo” stuck in my head. Yesterday my boo and I took hands and ran away. Not too far. Just a bed and breakfast a few towns away. Though our anniversary is just a couple days before Christmas we try to make it a point… read the rest.


Mommy and me natural hair.

At the end of the year I’m always brought to a place where I sit and reflect about how the year went. How my kids have grown, what they’ve learned and what I hope to teach them in the year to come. I think about how I’ve been as a wife, and a mother and… read the rest.
