Why I’ve Let You Down Since Starting This Anti-Blog

Remember a few months ago when I was like “I’m going to start an anti-blog to create an authentic space for vulnerable dialogue with women!” ...since then, I feel like I’ve let you all down. I’ve haven’t quite done what I promised. I’ve been working so diligently to get the Disney series out, that much of what I’ve written has been very surface level. Authentic, yes, but not quite what I was going for. So let’s go back to the initial reason why I was spurred to start this. And yet, I couldn’t get out of bed or stop crying. January 1, 2019. New Year’s Day. Coming off the holidays, getting ready to go back to work to start a...

Walt Disney World Part 3: The Packing

Y’all - it’s been awhile! And I say y’all because I spent some time in Arkansas with family last week, so now I’ve picked up the Southern twang a little. (if you haven’t seen my video of Ava, my oldest, speaking with her southern accent, go watch it on my Facebook! It’s hilarious.) As life goes, I haven’t prioritized getting these posts up. Luke’s grandpa passed away, I had quite a few evening work events (which is when I usually get my blogging done), and had lots of family birthdays, including my mom's 70th which involved a trip up north in Michigan. Phew, I'm tired just typing that! Back at it today, bringing you... Part 3 of the Walt Disney...

Kirsta's Favorite Things!

  Truth bomb: I was burning myself out a little on the Disney posts. I know, I KNOW. How the heck does anyone get burned out talking about THE MOST MAGICAL PLACE ON EARTH?! Maybe not 100% burned out, but definitely just felt like shaking things up in the middle of the series. So today’s post is MY FAVORITE THINGS!! March 2019 Edition. I don’t know about you guys, but it takes me a LOT of frickin’ trial and error when it comes to what works for me. So my goal is to share 10 of my current favs, and help a sister out in some way shape or form. These are random... Not kid-specific, not mom-specific. Just things we...
