Mommy Confessions: Sometimes I don't like my toddler

Even just writing the title of this post, I feel like a terrible mother.

You Might Be a New Mom If...

This time last year, I was just starting to get my bearings in the 'new-mom' world. While it was challenging and exciting all at the same time, it was also EMBARRASSING.

Twenty Minutes

I recently posted a photo of a quilt top on Instagram... and within minutes, I had three texts from friends with the same exact question: "How in the world do you find time to quilt?!?!"
