Call Me Crazy, but I Love Winter!

It’s usually around this time of year that people start getting all complainy about how cold it is, and how they can’t wait for Summer. Well, hold on to your hats folks, because I LOVE LOVE LOVE Winter. It is just so incredibly cozy. Fires, hot chocolate, hockey, skating, skiing, scarves, boots, mittens.. much cozy.

The Moment You Realize You’ve Reached “Older”

Like most young girls, I always dreamed of “when I’m older”. I couldn’t tell you the exact age that I started dreaming of my future, but I know that it was always something I thought about. Of course, I wanted to get married, buy a house, have children (at least 2), potentially a dog, maybe a cat, and definitely a good job.

Yesterday was my Hubby’s birthday, and like we do every year, we had one of those “how do you feel” conversations. Birthday’s are often a time of reflection, and now that we are in our early 30’s it seems incredibly surreal to talk about age.

Anyways, Mondays are horribly horrible… and the only thing worse than a Monday – is a Tuesday, because let’s be honest, there is absolutely NOTHING to look forward to on Tuesdays, EVER! The good news about Mondays, is that I am going to make my very best effort to post my most honest thoughts on Mondays. I’ve coined these posts “Mom-fessional Monday”. I wish I could say I made up the momfessional term, but I’m sure I read it somewhere and therefore cannot take credit. This is happening on Mondays, because it’s the only day of the week that I can use alliteration for this super fantastic term. Bahh.

A momfessional post will include my admittance of something I have done, or currently do as a Mom. I’ve already said in my very first blog post that you can expect, above all else, honesty. So I won’t be sugar coating mommy hood, even though it really is pretty sweet MOST of the time.

So, the truth is…. Continue reading
