Ode to the Mommy Meltdown

So let’s take it all in stride. You are the best mama you can be, and I’m the best mama I can be. We run the world and nobody can take that away from us.

I’m not any busier that any other mom. I sometimes get to shower and sometimes I don’t. I sometimes get to work out and sometimes I don’t. My hair is done, maybe, two days out of the week. Do I want to do these things? Sure, every single day, I want to. But I’m not having an emotional breakdown about it. Guess what? You shouldn’t either. Keep on Reading!

Low+Slow Onion Candy (AKA Caramelized Onion)

We are a family of three and the dining room doesn’t get much use — we always end up at the kitchen table. I’m hoping that some welcoming and warming decor will do the trick and lure us in there more often.

If you like to DIY or craft in general, you’re going to love this quick and easy project! Plus it will only cost you around $15 for everything. Keep on Reading!
