I realize that blogging is on its way out, unfortunately (sad panda).  I’ve taken to other platforms to continue this brand (Instagram mainly, SnapChat: JustTrimTheEnds, Facebook, and Twitter). However, I still find actual writing to be therapeutic and plan to maintain this blog too. It won’t be as often as I like due to life happenings and such BUT I will do my best to stay consistent.  I do cherish your love and support as time has gone by.  I’ve been running this blog for 7 years now and enjoy every moment of it.

If you use social media, follow along for more up-to-date posts and shenanigans that go on in my daily life! xo


Father’s Day! 

Happy Father’s Day to all the great Dad’s out there who are giving ice cream before bedtime behind Mom’s back. It’s totally cool, she will never find out. And to all those without their father today who may be struggling, know there is a Father in heaven who will always love you unconditionally, even if you eat the last cookie in the jar. 😎


In The Quiet Hours

All is quiet here on the home front.  It’s Mother’s Day and I wanted to take a moment to write something to my son.

Thank you for giving me purpose, drive and life.  Thank you for being who you are at all times, regardless of the storm.  They say children are a blessing, but you are that word that does not exist in any language but can be felt at all times where and when it matters most.  Saying, “I love you,” merely scratches the surface of how much I truly do.

Continue to grow and continue to be a light for the world.  Continue on your journey through brush and fire yet remain in tact because you are strong, you are whole, and truly blessed by God.

Thank you for giving me the title of, Mom.
