Smale Riverfront Park

One of the things I love about my city is that we are constantly growing and improving. They recently completed work on the new Smale Riverfront Park that runs along the Ohio River. The park is great for families, runners, young adults and just about anyone else. There is something for everyone. Smale park is a great option for families on a budget. While you may have to pay for parking you can spend all day at the park for free. I would love to pack a lunch the next time we go so that we can relax at one […]

Judgment

I have been struggling with how to write this post because this is one of the main topics I wanted to discuss when I started this blog. I think the reason it is so difficult for me is because there are so many different forms of judgment. So where do I even begin? Do I start with how moms judge other moms, or how women judge other women in general, or how we judge each other based on material items or how we judge people that are different than us? I will be going much more in-depth and sharing my […]

First Weekend Recap

It’s a little late but I’m getting my first weekend recap post up! Our weekends around here usually aren’t carefree and fun. Unfortunately, with the hubs and I both working full time our weekends are spent getting things done that we couldn’t get to during the week. So we are usually cleaning, running errands and doing grocery shopping. However, this weekend was actually pretty fun and relaxing even though we did get some cleaning done and of course had to do grocery shopping. It was far better than last weekend. We spent the holiday weekend with a sick little Roarinator. […]

Happening Now…Life!

This post is not what I expected it to be. I started with the idea for a post about “mom judging” which then turned into a post about judgment in general and now it is about living in the present. But really I think it all goes hand-in-hand, at least for me. So here it goes. I recently read a book titled, Present Over Perfect. I knew as soon as I saw the title I needed to read this book and I was so right! I am a self-proclaimed perfectionist and I was so worried about how others perceived me […]

The Roarinator

As I’m sitting here writing what I thought was going to be my next post I’m watching a hilarious interaction between the Roarinator and her daddy. Now I do have to explain one thing. The Roarinator is the first girl in the family. My husband has one older son from a previous relationship and we have Bubbadoodle together. She is also the first granddaughter after four grandsons on each side. So needless to say she has everyone wrapped around her tiny little finger. Anyway she was totally working her dad tonight as he was sitting watching football and enjoying some chips. […]

Authentic

According to dictionary.com the definition of authentic [aw-then-tik] is representing one’s true nature or beliefs. That is what I want this blog to be; a place where I can be my authentic self. Hopefully I can inspire others to be happy with their own, real lives and to stop striving so hard for something that is unattainable. I think it would be easy to start a blog to show a perfect house, prefect life, perfect everything but I believe it is much harder to be real, to be AUTHENTIC. I want this blog to be a place where people don’t […]
