Last week, several San Antonio bloggers bared their souls. And, as tough as parenting can be sometimes, it’s posts like these that remind us all: we’re not alone. Jennifer compares parenting to parking lots as she decides to embrace her quiet moments alone between shuttling kids to activities. Jill divulges a few of her parenting […]

Weekly Link Up for July 28 – August 3, 2014 (and ways to help the children crossing our border)

Well, what a week it’s been. It put me in a funk. You too? With the sad, tragic, and scary world events of late, it’s too easy to slip into feeling small and insignificant and bogged down with worry. The best way to banish that feeling, I’ve found, is to get out there and make […]

Weekly Link Up for July 7 – 13, 2014

It was a big weekend, y’all. I drove my first-born two hours away from our home to summer camp in the beautiful Texas Hill Country for the first time. Few things go more against your motherly instinct than leaving your kid with strangers, in the woods, and driving away. But she was ready. Boy, was she ready. […]

Weekly Link Up for June 30 – July 6, 2014

Summer. Is it as idyllic as you’d dreamed it would be? Or is it more rushed and hectic than the summers of your youth? My family is definitely having fun but summer is keeping us pretty busy too. I’m longing for some leisurely days with nothing on my mind other than the plight of the […]

Love and support for a San Antonio mom blogger and the Weekly Link Up for June 16 – 22, 2014

Our local group of mom bloggers here in San Antonio is extraordinary. I’m always in awe of the kindness, love, support, and respect we show to one another.

If last week’s San Antonio Mom Blogs link up is any indication, local mom bloggers aren’t slowing down as summer approaches.

Weekly Link Up for April 7 – 13, 2014

Y’all, the San Antonio Book Festival was breathtaking. It was the Fiesta of books. It was a reader’s paradise, a writer’s playground, and a child’s vivid dream prancing boldly around words and into billowing tents and amidst the vivid colors of the San Antonio Library splashed against the backdrop of an unseasonably gray spring sky. And […]

Where are the best bluebonnets in San Antonio? Do you have a favorite spot that’s blooming like crazy? The watch is on for the next month or so to find fields filled with these true Texas beauties.
