Mix Tape July

At the Moment: July was a fun month – we celebrating Dan’s Birthday & my birthday, went to a couple concerts, and the kids and I had a few “field trips” as they call them. It was the best timing ever – Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, which happens to be a favorite of mine (especially [...]

Mix Tape June

At the Moment: June started with a bang – Roy’s Jurassic Park birthday party! We rented a bounce house and he & his friends had a total blast. School is officially out for summer so we are enjoying more time together and working out our new schedules for work, sleep and play. We went to [...]

Mix Tape May

At the Moment: It’s been pretty busy around here…hence this post is a couple days late! What have we been up to? Well, our family took a trip to Chicago – It was Roy & Della’s first time there, and they had a total blast. A post coming on that soon! Also – Dan and [...]

Mix Tape April

At the Moment: Della just turned 4 years old and had a really fun Moana birthday party, and Moana came herself! She’s now more obsessed than ever with the movie (not complaining AT ALL). It was a blast! Roy has started T ball and loves it, and is excited for his own birthday party coming [...]

Mix Tape March

At the Moment: March really came in like a lion as they say – we had a bad storm here and lost our power for 4 days. It was rough, but we had some awesome friends & family help us through it in different ways and when we finally got power back we sure appreciated [...]

Mix Tape February

There were some awesome classes and fun crafty shenanigans, and I also spoke on the “Craft Show Confidential” panel. Then the kids had mid-winter break and we had a few [...]

Mix Tape January 2017

At the Moment: I’ve spent the last 4 weeks re-training myself to stop working in the evenings and on weekends, and to practice self-care every day most days. We’ve been cooking real food, I’m running nearly every day, spending more time with the fam & friends and *gasp* just trying to do LESS. It’s been [...]

Mix Tape November & December

November was SO crazy that I never even got to write a Mix Tape post for that month – my first missed one ever. So here’s a two month recap! At the Moment: The holiday season was a total whirlwind. Our family was busy with holiday happenings, family parties and hosting Christmas in our home. [...]

Mix Tape October

At the Moment: It’s strange how a month can be so jam packed that it feels like it took both 2 months and just a few days at the same time to fly by, but that was totally our October. Detroit Urban Craft Fair vendors are selected and we are putting some really fun surprises [...]

Mix Tape September

At the Moment: Roy and Della started kindergarten & preschool and both are having a great time in their new classes. No tears on the first day (other than Della crying when I picked her up, because she didn’t want to leave yet, ha!). The other big event of the month – Uncle Mark & [...]
