3 Ways being a Stepmom is Harder than being a Biomom

When a woman thinks about her future and the person she may end up with in a long-term committed relationship or marriage, a previously married man or woman is not what usually comes to mind. I don’t think any of us dream of falling in love with a divorcee and his/her children with another woman. According to the Pew Research Center, “Many, but not all, remarriages involve blended families.13 According to data from the National Center for Health Statistics, six-in-ten (63%) women in remarriages are in blended families, and about half of these remarriages involve stepchildren who live with the remarried

Why I have failed to listen to my heart

Hmmm, this is a tough topic for me. Painful in many ways. It’s the one destructive life pattern I have yet to break. Letting fear, *tyranny of the shoulds, and disconnection from spirit override my wants, dreams, and desires. At times this has left me heart sick and over all, not in very emotionally healthy spaces.

Pinecone Bird Feeders

Pinecone Bird Feeders

One of my favorite projects I did with the girls last month was making pine cone bird feeders. After an unseasonal warm-up, we had more than 18 inches of snow dumped on us. I felt for those poor birds. For the next week the temperatures stayed in the 20’s and the ground was 100% covered. During our weekly grocery shop we picked up some bird seed for our feeders and I let the girls make these pine cone feeders for the front bushes. It was one of the funnest projects we did. After minutes of hanging them, the birds were
