That One Mom Favorites From 2013

That One Mom Favorites From 2013


As the year draws to a close, I thought I would share some of my own favorite posts with you!

I know as a blogger you are supposed to find your niche.  And I know you are supposed to be constantly striving to come up with new things to draw attention.  Personally, I love to craft and cook and decorate, but most of my favorite posts are really just about my life and how I feel about it on that particular day.

I’m still learning how to express myself and I’m still learning how to do all of this technical mumbo-jumbo.  Thank you for being patient with me.  : )

I love being a blogger and I love sharing with other people.  So here are some of my favorite blog posts from 2013 (in no particular order):

"Call Me If You Need Me."


1.  College Move-In Day:  “Call Me If You Need Me.”    The story of my oldest child’s move-in day at college.  I still cry when I read it.

Much Love,



  1. I’m an LEO wife, too! It’s rewarding and tough, and not a lot of people understand the worry, pride, stress and craziness involved with being an LEO family. Love this collection of posts (and you’re right–who doesn’t love potato soup?).
