A{nother} Julep Review Part I #julep

I’ve already done a Julep review once before, but seeing as I still haven’t cancelled my subscription and managed not to skip some months in time – I had 4 beautiful boxes waiting for me at the condo. Yay to my sister in law for bringing them back for me {she went at a different time}. Wanna know what I got and what I think? Well, okay… First things first – Julep made some changes to the American Beauty maven…

A Good Follow-up #makesmelaugh

I told you in a recent post that despite being happily married, Brent can drive me CARAZY!!!! Marriage can’t be perfect ALL of the time. It’s a shame really, though I suppose it keeps us appreciating the amazing times and committed to putting in the effort to make them the norm. That being said…..this makes me laugh.

Now of course there is an element of effort to successful marriages, though neither of us has felt like it was *work* to stay together…neither has it been *work* to stay in love.

Volunteer Tea And A Forgiving Boy

Generally speaking, my working hasn’t impacted the kids lives too much. Brooklyn is in school full time, so, except for an hour afterwards twice a week, her life hasn’t changed at all. And Jonah, who is in two {now three} full days for Kindergarten, spends one of my working days at school and the other at a friend’s house playing. Seriously, nothing really out of the norm. And I’m loving the part time balance – still getting to do the…
