On Being a Megaphone

I've written here at Girl with Blog for nearly 8 years. I've written an ebook and edited/curated another. I've submitted words to publishers, websites and blogs. I work with words. I steep in words. I wrestle words into 140 characters. I think written words all day....

on Five Minute Friday: here

Linking up with Five Minute Friday at Kate Motaung's place. The rules: write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking – then visit other ladies who have linked up. Hop over to Kate’s to find out the full scoop behind FMF, and to visit other...

22 weeks: A Bumpdate !

22 weeks. Over halfway (probably). It's coming, folks. This baby's a-coming. I mentioned recently on Instagram that we're expecting lots of change this coming year. Like a lot. We're hoping to move very, very soon. We'll welcome this baby this fall. We'll have three...

When Self-Care Looks Like Iced Tea & Earrings

Last week on Facebook I saw a picture that you've all probably seen too: someone sitting by a pool, book in hand, toes against blue water, and captioned 'self care'. I straight laughed, because earlier that SAME day I'd had my 21 week OB visit. It was our long...

A Standing Ovation for You

I watch the Bachelorette. And the Bachelor. It's my brain candy and while I'm sure it rots my synapses like cavities in tooth enamel, I can't quit. It's a little like a train wreck that I can't look away from, drawn in while holding my hands over my eyes because it's...

On Hard Days and Do-over Grace

Today (yesterday, now) was a hard, hard day. We had a full beautiful weekend, attending a wedding and two days at family camp. We made memories and chose not to pick lots of battles. We allowed candy and late-night movies. Sam got to sleep on the top bunk and jump on...

Maternity Stitch Fix -ing a 20-week Baby Bump

Last week I stood in front of my closet and threw things onto the floor. The piles of clothes grew much as I'm doing as I grow this baby. I'm tired of weeping in my bedroom, Sunday mornings ruined because of my vanity and a closet-full of clothes that don't fit - and...

On Taming My Tongue

It was late. I was tired and pregnant-sick and tired of being pregnant-sick. The text was a last-straw kind of deal and I snapped, in the way you're able when it's 'just' keys and screen. Our friendship hasn't been the same since. The meeting took a turn I hadn't...

17 weeks: a Baby #3 Update

17 weeks. Along we go! On our way to three babies. I think we're still trying to wrap our minds around it all, and aside from hoping the sickness fades quickly, we are just so very excited we can't stand it. I haven't done any kind of update for you yet, and seeing as...
