Reaching Out To Ask for Help

I’ve been debating with myself about posting this for a couple of weeks, but it’s become necessary and unavoidable, unfortunately. We’ve lived paycheck to paycheck for a very long time. We have been fortunate to be able to live this way for the last couple of years; in 2011 and 2012, we were homeless for […]

Sunshine After The Storm – Mother’s Day 2014 Campaign

Mother's Day Giveaway 2014

On July 1, 2012, my infant daughter was born silently into the world, and when that happened, a whole new world of grieving parents opened up to me.

A Stolen Few Minutes… And A Gender Announcement!

Just Out Of Arm’s Reach

Just Out of Arm's Reach

It’s difficult to reconcile being so happy for one baby, while nursing a broken heart over another. I keep waiting for it to get easier, but all I can picture these days is Clara at 15 months old. Would she be walking yet? Talking? Unpacking our laundry basket all over the floor? I wish so […]

Summer Savings with Fuel Rewards Network and MasterCard

At the beginning of the summer, I wrote a post about how our family was saving money using MasterCard and the Fuel Rewards Network. I thought it was about time to update you all on our summer savings, and what we’ve been able to do with our grocery rewards. I’ve learned even more about the […]

What’s On Your Fridge? {Old School Blogging} #OSBlog


It’s August… time for some more Old School Blogging! Elaine (Miss Elaine-ous) and Katie (Sluiter Nation) want to see what’s on your fridge (or in your fridge, for that matter). I’m not going to show you the inside, because it’s the day before payday and the fridge is pitifully empty, but I will show you […]
