Amazon Holiday Decor

Yes, I’m aware it’s November 6th. But we are all thinking about Christmas … c’mon you know you are. I’m getting ready to start decorating because with our hockey/gymnastics schedule, I’m not going to have a ton of time to do it. Our outside stuff hasn’t gotten up the last two years because we’ve been out of town, but now that Caleb can help me (Tim’s schedule is doubly busy right now) I’m gonna get it done this year! That’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it.

National Hockey Mom’s Day

When I found out I was having a son, I had lots of dreams about what being his mom would include. If you had told me then that I’d be celebrating a day called “National Hockey Mom’s Day” I would have laughed in your face. Me? A hockey mom? I’m a born Southern who only knew what hockey was because we’d gotten a few free tickets to a local ECHL game and I liked the Mighty Ducks. But enter Caleb.

2019 and Resolutions

My quote for this year

At the beginning of every New Year I always hear people talking about their “Word of the Year”. It always kind of seemed cliche and silly to me; one whole word to focus your year around? Seems like you’re setting yourself up for failure. But I’m sure you can see where this post is going, I changed my mind this year. And I picked the most cliche word ever. Might as well go whole hog with it, right?

Be Thankful – Day Two

November 2

Day two, I am immensely and eternally grateful for my husband. Tim came into my life sooner than I expected, but as soon as I met him, I knew he was it for me.

He challenges me, inspires me, loves me, and drives me crazy. Saying we haven’t had our low moments would be a lie … and I’m not here to lie to y’all. There were times I didn’t know if we’d make it. But we’re both stubborn and more importantly, love the heck out of each other.

Being his wife has allowed so many good things to happen to me. I thank God every day I went to the movies on that January night (maybe I’ll share our love story one day).

Tim keeps me on my toes and my wit sharpened. He’s quick on his feet and always knows just the right thing to make me smile or blush, which he is probably most proud of. My binge partner (anyone got any new recommendations?), my sounding board, supporter, snuggler, crazy dancer, always on, my guy. Tim lights up my life everyday and while I’m not gonna pretend I don’t wanna strangle him sometimes, I couldn’t do life without him and I wouldn’t want to.

Every day I thank my lucky stars he’s my guy and I’ll never stop thanking them.


All the love,


November Thankfulness

Firstly, let me just say, hey y’all! I haven’t disappeared! Caleb turned 13, hockey every weekend, AND I have had the worst, most lingering cold in the world. But I’m back with more Serendipity for you!

Every year, for each day during the month of November, I share one thing I am thankful for. I have been so richly blessed and of course, every day I’m thankful. I just think it’s nice to take a little time, every day to reflect on all I have to be grateful for. It’s so easy to get bogged down in the junk and bad stuff; purposefully taking the time to type out one thing that God has blessed me with, I find, can change my whole perspective.
