A couple of weeks ago, a friend sent out a message that she was planning a family kickball tournament. And so, a bunch of us gathered today this past weekend to play. We faced harsh field conditions from recent heavy rains, but we forged ahead anyway. All of us, ranging in age from 4-40+ (and an infant rooting us on from her Bumbo on the …

An Accessorized Life

Cate Mezyk - September 22, 2016

We spend a lot of time talking about the new clothing items that come streaming through our door in big boxes from UPS and Fed Ex every week (seriously, it’s like Christmas all the time around here for us as we open everything up).

After perusing the internet for a good recipe (i.e. one that called for items I already had in my kitchen), I was all …

The other day, I had THE most annoying day. It wasn’t as if anything particularly terrible happened. Just a string of really annoying things, one after another, that left me with a bad taste in my mouth. I found myself exhausted by the end of it, physically and emotionally. When I woke up feeling salty the next day, still mulling over the unfairness of my …

Life is different around here these days. As I told you in my letter to my daughter, my oldest has started middle school. And lucky us – her school has the earliest start time in the state! That means Avery and I getting up a little earlier around here. Our new normal looks a lot different than it used to.  Whereas before, I woke up before …

When it rains it pours. And let me tell you it’s pouring all week this week; in every sense of the word.
