There’s something about a good, homemade stuffing (or dressing as some call it) that makes the whole Thanksgiving meal that much better. I have tried a number of different types of stuffing in my years, but I always found them to be very soggy and while many love it that way, I’m just not a fan of the mush. Once we had kids and I started wanting to cook entire thanksgiving feasts by myself, I realized that without the perfect stuffing recipe, my feast was going to be more of a flop. Over the years, I finally perfected the recipe and now, I’m excited to share it with all of you on the blog today (link is in my bio or you can swipe up in stories).

Apparently, it’s my birthday 🎂 … Isn’t it funny how as you get older, your birthday gets less and less exciting? I used to do a countdown, like a month in advance. I would remind everyone I saw. It was ridiculous. Now, if it wasn’t for the 3049823048 notifications that I get from FB, from all of the people that I haven’t heard from since last year, I might not even remember it’s my birthday at all. But since the cat’s out of the bag, yes, it’s my birthday. I’m 35 + shipping and handling and feel every bit my age, especially when I try to keep up with my kids . I’m spending the day packing for my birthday vacation (whoop!) and look forward to celebrating with my family! Since I can’t take you all with me, I’ve joined a bunch of really awesome bloggers to give away $430 on the blog today!

While I do talk about it in DMs when people reach out, it occurred to me that many of you are unaware of my other blog, @thesuperblogcoach. The story behind it is that I had a couple of incredible women who taught me what I needed to know to become a successful blogger and influencer so I could support my family through this fun career. I wanted to make sure I did the same for others. It got difficult repeating things over and over again so I decided to create a site where I would blog solely about tips for bloggers and influencers, no matter where in their journey they are. That way, I could direct people over there and they can read at their own speed. I don’t charge for any of the info. It’s totally free. Just my way of paying it forward. I hope you’ll check it out and if you have anything you’re currently struggling with, let me know. I’ll add it to my topic list for future blog posts! Now tell me, did you know about thesuperblogcoach.com?

In honor of this smiling horse, and because yesterday’s pun tanked (guess most of you have never heard ‘what came first, the chicken or the egg?’)... today I’m sharing a horse joke. 🐎 
Once upon a time there was a rich man that was driving past a farm, he looked over and saw a beautiful stallion standing in the field. The rich man thought, ‘Wow I gotta have him’ so he pulled into the farm’s entrance. He found the owner and said, “I want that horse out yonder in that field. How much do you want for him?” The farmer said, “He don’t look to good.” “Nonsense” said the rich man “I’ll pay you $1000 for him.” “But he don’t look to good,” said the farmer. The rich man sighed and said, “$2000 dollars is my final offer.” The farmer sold the beautiful horse to the rich man. One week later the rich man came back angry as ever and said, “Darn you, you sold me a blind horse!” Then the farmer smiled and said, “I TOLD YOU HE DIDN’T LOOK TOO GOOD!!!!” .

One thing I regret is not having newborn photos taken of all three girls. I’ve looked back at Falynn’s photos so many times over the years and they still give me all the feels. We were so blessed to have been able to have them taken by @jenpriesterphotography. Jen is so talented and really the sweetest person. I am forever grateful that she made the trip from Michigan to Florida to capture these for us. Did you have professional newborn pictures taken of your kids?

Let’s talk about photo editing. There are so many people on IG that I admire, when it comes to their editing and photography styles… @theautismcafe, @momsinknots, @taramoon and @dearauggie, just to name a few. I’m constantly trying to learn, grow and improve my photos. So I thought it would be fun to take an older photo and edit it again, just to see the changes in my own personal style. Swipe to see the original edit from earlier this year. Not a huge difference, but I do notice slight improvements. Which do you prefer? Do you tend to gravitate toward the darker or brighter feeds?

Halloween is over, so we can start talking about Christmas now, right?! 🙌🏻 The holidays are usually a blur for me. Between decorating, cooking and prepping the house, its non-stop. It’s hard not to feel overwhelmed when you add in our everyday chores as parents. I think it’s important to keep the kids occupied with something that you can use, instead of sitting them in front of a screen. Plus, it’s great to encourage your little one’s creativity. We love to choose a few projects every year and have the girls create our holiday décor. They love that we proudly display their projects and they make a great gift for your guests or their school friends! This year, we are excited to share our first Christmas craft idea, the snowman jar! What do you think?

A Letter to My Oldest Daughter

If You Love It, Share It!

It was an afternoon in February, 13 years ago and I had just taken a pregnancy test.  Your Dad and I knew we were ready to be parents, but we didn’t realize just how fast our dreams would become a reality.  As he walked through the door that evening, from work, I remember looking up and saying, “You’re going to be a Daddy.”  He stopped, smiled and literally jumped up and down.  I’m not sure I’d ever seen him that happy.  I’m not sure I had ever been that happy myself.

I was never really nervous about becoming a Mom.  I knew that I loved you as soon as I heard your first heartbeat, maybe even before that.  I knew that you were going to be smart, beautiful and the perfect combination of your Dad and I. I knew I was going to do everything in my power to give you the best life.  I was going to teach you to be kind, loving and brave. What I didn’t know was that you would be the one to change my life.

Your Arrival

When you finally arrived, I thought my heart would explode.  You were more perfect than I could have imagined.  You had this amazing thick black hair and big bright eyes.  You held my finger and looked at me and I thought I would melt.  I wanted to protect you. I wanted to hold you and sing to you and make you laugh. I wanted to show you off to the world.  You were the most beautiful baby I had ever seen.

As you got older, you started developing your own personality.  You could make us laugh so easily, without even trying.  You were always sweet and kind, helping when you were able to.  When you became a big sister, you handled it so well.  I would catch a glimpse of you staring at your baby sister every once and a while.  You suddenly went from our baby to a little girl that loved to play “Mom” to her baby sister. You would try to change her diaper or feed her.  You were her protector almost instantly.  You wanted to hold her and sing to her and make her laugh.  You wanted to show her off to the world.  It was the most special relationship I had ever seen.

When we decided to move from the city you grew up in, you transitioned so flawlessly.  You made new friends right away and found a love of dance.   The day you graduated from pre-school I realized that my baby was growing up.   The older you got, the more involved you became.  You decided to join the Girl Scouts and experienced so many new and exciting adventures.  Not long after you turned 7, your youngest sister was born.  Each time I turned around, you were reading to her, teaching her or keeping her occupied.  You shared your toys, fed her and helped her with her baths.  You took on more than anyone expected you to, because you wanted to, not because you were asked to.

And suddenly, in the blink of an eye, you were starting middle school. It was almost as though overnight, you were almost the same height as me, wearing my shoes and asking to borrow my lip gloss. You started waking up early to do your hair, wanted to pick out your own clothing and make your own breakfast.   You started experiencing new things and although you were almost always happy, there were a couple of times that I saw you break down.  I wanted to protect you. I wanted to hold you and sing to you and make you laugh. You were the most beautiful girl I had ever seen and I wanted you to see what I saw in you.

Now, A Young Lady

Now here you are, a young lady, almost a teenager.  You catch me staring at you sometimes.  I’m just in awe of how stunning you are.  Not just your appearance, but your heart.  You tell me everything and ask me all of your questions, no matter how awkward my answers may be.  You don’t let people treat you badly. You stand up for yourself and for others.  You work hard to achieve goals you’ve set for yourself and you never give up. I love watching you reach for the highest star and effortlessly surpassing it.

I am incredibly proud of you.  More than I could ever say.  I will always be here for you, no matter what.  I am here to listen. I’m here to protect you. I’m here to hold you and sing to you and make you laugh.  You are the most extraordinary girl and you are so loved.  Thank you for choosing me as your Mama.  It’s a gift I’ll always cherish.  I love you.

    Beautiful letter and seriously I was practically crying by the end of it. My older daughter will be starting kindergarten next year and have a feeling I will be a bit emotional about her starting, so yes can relate and will be there too next year with this one.

    This is a beautiful letter to your daughter. I remember when I wrote one for my daughter about the same time. I’m sure she knows you love her, even when you look a little longer at her. I remember those feelings of happiness when my ex and I knew we were having a child. And I still look at my daughter now, knowing how blessed we truly are.

I wish I had the opportunity to have told my daughter about being her mom but the Lord called her home when she was 16. But I will not make that mistake again and I tell my son everyday how proud of him. But I need to write a letter so he always has it to look back on.

    What a beautiful tribute to your oldest daughter. I think the nice thing about this letter is she will be able to look back on it and remember just what you thought at this time in her life.

  • Jennifer Van Huss

    That is so beautiful. I had to dab my eyes once or twice. My daughter is getting older every second, and I see her turning from my little girl into my young lady. It’s an odd feeling of pride, sadness, and wishing I could pause life just for a little while.

    So sweet! I love these types of posts and I’m sure our kids will appreciate them when they are older too. I would love to do something like this for my kids. How meaningful and thoughtful.

    It’s amazing how fast this time goes when they are little. I feel like I was just amazed by my oldest daughter starting kindergarten. Then her little sister came along and time went on super speed. Your daughter sounds lovely.

    Omg this is so sweet! I’m the oldest daughter and I teared up just knowing that some of this is what my mom feels.

    Wow. That really touched me. I have two boys, so I read it through the eyes of my mom speaking to me. Beautiful. You’re a terrific writer.

    What a smashing letter! I love how honest it is. Your daughter will appreciate these types of letters one day, if she doesn’t already now. She is lovely!

    I’m not going to lie, I teared up a bit. This is such an amazing gift for your daughter because she’ll be able to look back on this and read it over and over and know how loved she is!
