Being a mom is the hardest thing I've ever done, but it has brought me so much joy! I want to encourage other moms on their journey, I'll share motherhood tricks, spotlight tips I've learned from friends, and I hope you will share your ideas. I will focus on secrets that help families stay balanced, healthy, frugal, creative, and closely knit. I will also share favorite fiction and nonfiction books that I have enjoyed. Many blessings to you on your mothering journey!

Ice Cream!

I finished reading through the draft of my new book today. Whew! Hooray!

I dished out some ice cream as an evening treat. As I was scooping, I thought of a tip to share with you. We always eat our ice cream in coffee mugs. I know it sounds strange, but it's the perfect portion size and it still feels like a full serving. It's way too tempting to get a double portion if you eat out of a cereal bowl!

I still remember when I first saw someone eat ice cream out of a coffee mug. I was babysitting for family friends for a weekend in college. The girls dished out ice cream to share - in a mug - and I laughed out loud! Now I've been following in their footsteps for over a decade!

But I will confess. If I'm r-e-a-l-l-y craving sugar, I've been known to go back for a second helping. Thankfully, though, that's a rare occasion!
