The beautiful habit of Prayer.

It is 5:40am and I hear a beeping, down the hallway ……My 7 year old son has set an alarm. Thinking it was a mistake; I get out of bed and open the door to turn it off when he catches me, like a red handed burglar. He sat up, wide eyed and bushy tailed…

Funky Pancakes| Natural Food Coloring

Some days, we serve up toast and eggs for a simple breakfast or even cereal when this mama isn’t quite awake and other days I pretend to be artsy and creative and make pancakes into special designs.

Afternoons with my girl…

Trying out purple hair chalk and painting hello kitty pictures with my girl. She calls me mama and its tender yet demanding and to me, epitomizes the beauty of motherhood.
