Easy Delicious Wheat Bread

6 years ago, after graduating from BYU, my husband’s career in the Air Force began. We, along with our toddler and newborn, moved away from Utah to the other side of The United States. Away from family, friends, and everything familiar. I was so excited for the adventure (and the beach, duh.) I learned a […]

First Months in England

Wow. Just wow. I’ve procrastinated this post a bit because of how tricky it will be to condense it! Campbell’s could teach me a thing or two about condensing. I’m not good at it. Just ask Delta airlines how many suitcases we brought with us on our flights to The UK … 12. The answer […]

Spreading Kindness with Del Monte

This post has been sponsored by Del Monte. All thoughts and opinions are my own. So … the last few months … am I right? Things have been craaazy! There has been one constant though. I’m constantly wondering how I can be a better parent. A better mom. A better educator. A better comforter. I […]

Fave T-Shirt Dresses

Summer wardrobes guys, it’s tough. Sweaty, sweaty, and sweaty. It’s tricky when you’re trying to remain modest, yet not sweat your baguettes off. That’s why the T-shirt dress is a fantastic invention. They’re breezy and long enough for me, yet not too long. Long enough is definitely a necessity because if I bend over  (any mother […]

Life is Good with Darigold Fit

Life has been good. And crazy. And different. And wonderful. And unknown. And happy. Mostly happy. We are so happy to be back together as a family. Even if our life looks different than it did when Mr. E left. It looks different regardless of COVID because he was gone for 70% of a year […]
