Toddlers Around Town: Texas Edition

Last month Cillian and I went to Texas to see some family so we of course took pictures. I love visiting my grandfather in the Texas hill country, it’s so beautiful out there. I always feel at peace when I’m there. It was really foggy our first morning there and it felt like we were…

Things My Parents Taught Me

I gotta be honest, I have a really hard time remembering things from my childhood. I only say that because once I became a mom my brain only has room for my kids and the stuff they do. Sometimes though my siblings will remind me of something or my kids will do something that reminds…

Who I Am Without Medication

Last night I dreamt that my family and I were living in a hospital because the world was dying. We had to go outside though to save the dinosaurs. There were dog sized Brontosauruses who were being killed and we had to rescue them. We got them and their babies and brought them into the…

My First Best Friend

I think like most people my very first best friend was my cousin. We grew up together in a small town in Texas called Madisonville. We went to church together for a bit, we spent the night at each other’s houses, we played together at our Nana’s house and we played guitar together. I’m talking…
