    A Virgin

    Excuse me for a second, but I just so happen to be a all-star baseball mom “virgin”. Meaning that… my kid was just a normal 6 year old baseball player until 3 weeks ago.

    But then, you see, we got this invitation for him to play on what they call the “All-Star” team.  That’s when things got serious.

    And crazy competitive. Like whoooooa. (more…)

    It Only Takes That One Time

    I wrote this post over 2 years ago, right after one of the scariest incidents in my life, but was too shaken up to post it.

    I’m posting it now in hopes that it will remind you how important it is to ALWAYS be looking when your kids are in or near the pool. Or any body of water for that matter.

    And maybe you don’t need reminded. If not, good. But just in case you are that mother that thinks you are in control of all situations in life (like I thought)…here’s a few reasons why you are not.

    Taking More Time For My Family Means…

    …saying “no” to things that fulfill my time.

    We just recently got back from San Diego where my husband and I spoke about work-life balance at the Digital Co-Lab conference. While I was preparing the speech I couldn’t help but think that I wasn’t qualified to be an expert at work-life balance.

    In fact, balancing work and life was something I failed at over and over and over again. Working too much. Living too little.

    And my hubby was even worse. He used to be so consumed with working that, sometimes, we didn’t see him or have is undivided attention for days at a time.

    A Trio Performance

    During our July 4th party we randomly decided to improv a little mini performance with me, my best friend Kate and my guitar instructor/friend, Chris.

    A Blur

    We have been so extremely busy this summer that we have barely enjoyed our pool. From the RV trip to speaking in San Diego…and now to Portland, Oregon on Friday…it’s one big travel fest over here.

    I’m not complaining…because it’s definitely been adventurous, but I’m ready to take a break from the crazy and let life SLOW DOWN a little.

    Do y’all ever feel like summer-time is here and gone in a flash?

    I mean, how on earth can it possibly be July already. One of my teacher friends was already setting up her classroom for next year. Really?

    The time that I have spent at home has been spent working and redecorating. Ha!

    We hosted a July 5th party and so, of course, it motivated me to re-do gallery walls and spruce up my back patio. Funny how having guests over always motivates you to finish projects that have been needing finished for months. I should probably host a party monthly to keep me on top of my to-do list.
