What Games Do YOU Like To Play?

 So, as you all know, YES, I'm a busy stay at home mama. I work from home, I homeschool, I cook, clean, play, and more. However, in order to not completely lose my sanity, I either read, sing, or play games on my phone and computer.  I've come across quite a few different game apps that I enjoy, but as for gaming websites, I started playing some of my all time favorite games on www.solitaire.org. (You can play each game in a standalone app if you choose to and neither the website nor app have ads!) Don't let that name fool you, though! They offer a lot more variety than just Solitaire. Although, Solitaire actually has been one of my games of choice since I was younger. It's relaxing and I've gotten pretty good at it over the years. If you don't like Solitaire, there are also many other entertaining card games available, such as Euchre and Hearts.  I was pleasantly surprised to find a really good mix of games that I'm familiar with on their site. Have you ev

My Journey in Blogging

  Several years ago, I got pregnant with my son and my life completely changed. I became a stay at home mom for the very first time. This was all so new to me. I had always been the type to work outside the home and would normally spend very little time at my house.  Now, I was spending day after day, hour after hour, at home with a newborn. I also chose to exclusively breastfeed and was most comfortable doing that in the comfort of my own home. So, long story short, I was home practically all the time. That got a bit tough for me, but I didn't want to put my baby in daycare, nor did I want to leave him alone with a babysitter all the time. My son's father was the main one working and he worked long hours away from home. I found myself reading a variety of blogs online. I read about a few people who used blogging as their main source of income, others who were reviewing products for hundreds of companies, and then some who just wanted to share their life journey. There are some

How to Crush The Adulting Game Like a Pro

  Being an adult definitely has its perks, but it’s not as amazing as most of us thought it would be as kids. I remember when I was younger, I would just count down the days until I could drive myself, start college, or get a big girl job. But, when those times actually rolled around, why wasn’t it as magical as I thought it was going to be?  Okay, maybe some of it was. I’ll admit - driving off alone for the first time was definitely as fun and magical as I expected, but moving out, going to college, and getting a job?! Not so fun, or at least not all the time like I had once expected. It’s funny because when we get to the “not-so-fun” parts of life, a switch flips in our brain and we wish that we could go back in time, when we didn’t have bills to pay and things to do. But, this is part of life, and all you can do is try your best to make the most out of each moment. There really are so many amazing things about adulting that I try my best not to take for granted, but keep in mind - t

The Beauty of Sending of A Handwritten Letter

  This pandemic has affected us all in one way or another. For me, I feel as though it has made me want to reach out to my loved ones a lot more often. A simple check in with them from time to time just to let them know that I'm still here if they need me. Sometimes, I simply enjoy writing to them. I don't know about you guys, but ever since I was younger I've always felt that there's nothing more meaningful or more personal than a handwritten note . I'm talking about a thank you note, a thinking about you letter, a birthday wish, an I miss you letter, a congratulations message, an engagement announcement, a letter to a pen pal, etc. I'm sure you get the idea. I remember back when I was in school I used to write a ton of notes and letters to my friends and family all the time. In fact, I still have a big box in my closet stuffed with several of the ones that meant the most to me. I like to take them out and look at them from time to time. They're filled with
