My "brief" nightmare before Christmas

I was so excited to sit down in the car and write this blog... we'd had a great morning, did a little last minute shopping (no crowds!!! #winning), got wrapping done, made my pie and packed our things to head to the in-laws to spend the night on Christmas Eve... Then everything unfolded... we were all at the car, hubby lost his phone, we forgot several things and then one of our bottles spilled all over our bag of clothes. I sat here so mad... all the happiness I'd felt from the day was now filled with frustration. The "image" I'd had in my mind of how this afternoon would go had now shifted and I couldn't get past that mentally so I even said forget the blog I don't feel like writing it now.Why though? It's STILL a good day. I'm spending my 1st Christmas as a wife to my awesome and loving hubby, we are spending our first Christmas Eve at his parents together AND with my kiddos (sans my oldest, she was at the house this am), we have presents packe…

Float adrift on memory bliss...

So it's Wednesday and between working for my new job, starting this show, planning some events, health issues, being a Mom and a million other things, I needed to de-stress. Big time. I also haven't had a chance yet to blog about floating which just so happens to be my new job so I killed two birds with one stone today and floated to relax and to blog about it too 
First of course please realize I do work at H2Om Float so I do have love for the place for that reason alone BUT this post isn't me as an employee. This post is me as a busy worker, entrepreneur and mama. Floating is simply LIFE.
I'd been thinking about it for days.. wanting to just get in a pod room, stick those ear buds in, shower off and crawl into the warm welcoming water for a complete hour of peace, quiet and pure bliss. I wanted an hour where my body didn't hurt, no one needed me for anything, the phone wasn't buzzing and my mind could just let go. 
Every day was filled with work, events, k…

"Hallmark Moments"

Today I am grateful... This may be a bit more personal than some of my other posts but every now and then I need to just release my thoughts.
We all have our struggles.. many of us may think we have it harder than the next. Of course there are so many quotes and posts, especially around the holidays telling us to be thankful for what we have or reminding us how someone didn't wake up today. Yes we know, we all struggle but sometimes we can't even see the full extent of our struggle until we aren't dealing with those struggles in the same way.
I've had a lot of reminders this holiday but today would be my biggest. I hosted a toy drive today. I watched a bunch of very small children have their eyes light up at the sight of toys donated. I thought back to when my babies were very little and how they too were the recipients of donated toys.
Before anything I'm a Mom and most of my life I have been a hard working, struggling Mother. Becoming a Mom at 16 years of age…
