Meet Bailey

I’ve wanted a dog for a while, and the kids have even longer. As a single lady I was both very reluctant to add another new responsibility and expense to my life…even though I was also just as attracted to the positive aspects of having a pet – not being alone when the kids are …

MOVE – An Update on Life

What an amazing whirlwind life has been lately. A year ago October, right before Halloween, I was visiting the Phoenix/Mesa area in partnership with Visit Mesa and Visit Phoenix. We ate tons of good food at lots of different places – Postino (they have a location in Denver, too, which I keep saying would be fantastic for a …

Thankful

Three years ago I pinned this Thankful Tree from Simply Vintage Girl. I had saved it for the purpose of doing something like this with my kids. It is an attractive, simple decoration for the month of November, but also a great reminder that even though our life is challenging at times our family has …

A Mother’s Legacy

There’s this quote I’ve seen on Pinterest over and over again over the past few years. Something about good moms having crumbs on the floor and sticky…whatever. I always used to roll my eyes when I saw it and told myself that’s just what messy people say to make themselves feel better. You can be …

Madeline’s Handwriting

Madeline just started kindergarten this year and she was only 4 when the year first began. As the youngest in her class she has been working very hard to catch up with the rest of the group. She regularly asks me to give her homework assignments so she can practice her letters and is so …

Colorado Sunsets

We made it to Colorado! Somehow we managed our move without falling apart. We’ve been incredibly busy unpacking and getting organized in our new home (which we are in love with). Unpacking the kitchen was, of course, my first priority – a task that took me 3 days to complete. There were so many “kitchen” …

The First Snow of the Season

We’ve had snow twice this week already. Saturday morning Logan and Madeline were so excited to wake up to a beautiful blanket of white snow. They quickly threw on jackets, shoes, socks, and hats (Madeline even put snow pants over her PJs) before heading out the door to build two baby snowmen. I’m often asked …

Happy Birthday Madeline!

Dear Madeline, Today is your birthday! You are FOUR. The past four years have flown by. Some days it seems like just yesterday you were my cute chubby baby, happy to cuddle your days away – though you still want your “mommy cuddle” on a nightly basis. Other times I feel like I can barely …

Little Hands in the Kitchen

I don’t normally post this sort of thing here on GoodLife Eats, so I hope you don’t mind my indulgence today. I usually try to keep things more about food and recipes, so please excuse me for veering off course. Now that Logan is in school full-time I spend a lot more time in the …
