Anxiety, community, and free things! OH MY.

I cannot tell you guys how many times I have positioned myself at this computer to write a blog post. A steaming hot coffee to my right, and my fingers hovering just above the middle row of my keyboard, but no words come. What could I possibly share with you guys that would have any significance? It isn't much, but I want to give ya'll a look into my anxious heart the last few weeks. At the encouragement of a…

On Knowing When To Press Pause..

For over four years, This Messy Season, has been my creative home base. You guys have allowed me to share my children as they’ve grown, my successes, my motherhood disappointments, my favorite books, my silly jokes, my favorite products. We’ve gone through career changes, cross country moves, and this platform has been my constant in a sea of changes. I’ve had experiences I could’ve only dreamt of. I’ve poured my heart into content, and prayed that something I have shared…

Fun For Kids When Nothing Feels That Fun.

I'm an anxious mess, this gloom and doom is just too much for this hypochrondriac, Enneagram seven. I love being in community with others, planning parties, researching cheap flights, planning my next adventure. BUT I'm also a recovering busy body, and kind of looking forward to a reset with my kids. T'his year has been rushed and busy, mornings hectic even for me as a morning person. I work from home as a full time travel blogger, so this is…

#ChooseFun, Rest, And Be Inspired Aboard The Carnival Paradise!

Disclosure: Thank you Carnival for hosting me aboard your beautiful vessel. All opinions expressed are my own! Can I be honest? I was very nervous to step so out of my comfort zone and leave my family for five days. I talk a big game about the importance of self care and carving out time for ourselves, but truthfully, I'm really bad at it. I know my family is more than capable, but I value my work as a mom…

Fishing With Kids In & Around Jacksonville, Florida

Fishing season 2020 is finally upon us, so I thought I would spend a little time sharing some things you can get your kids involved in if you live near the Jacksonville/St. Augustine area.

We joined a little over a year ago, and have learned so much. We have some incredible…

Catch Up With Me: March 2020 Edition.

March is well underway, and there is no denying the most exhilarating part of my month was my recent cruise. I had the opportunity to be hosted by Carnival cruise line as part of a group of 40 bloggers. It was such a motivating and inspiring week for me, plus it was just down right fun. Getting to spend uninterrupted with friends, learn from each other, go dancing, drink frosty beach drinks. It was amazing and that time I will…

Parenting Wisdom I Found From “Cheer” on Netflix

I cannot tell you guys how many people told me I would love the show "Cheer" on Netflix. To be honest, I was nervous to watch! I was worried they'd poke fun at a sport I know to be challenging. I was a cheerleader growing up, and as a young mama, I coached high school cheerleading. I was so blessed by the coaches in my life, and I dreamt of having some sort of impact on the girls' I coached.…
