Happy Monday Friends,
How was your weekend? Did you make some time for yourselves? Did you spend time with family? Did it rain all weekend where you are?
I hope the chaos of the week settled over the weekend so you can enjoy your free time, as free as it is going to get. We’re parents, so free time isn’t really free, is it?
This past week I celebrated my birthday!
It was a quiet birthday which I happen to enjoy a lot of these days.
The birthday week ended with the flu. Not a fun way to close out getting older, but my husband was amazing and allowed me to get the rest I needed to recover and take on this Monday. Very few of us are blessed with an amazing support system, so I didn’t take it for granted. My daughter got some great bonding time with her daddy, and I got time to recharge.
Thank you to everyone for all of your kind birthday messages and shout outs. I have truly found a wonderful group of amazing people in the online community. You all are truly amazing and I could not appreciate you more.

Finding new bloggers is a treat for me. I love coming across different perspectives and discussions in the Parent Blogger world. Recently, I stumbled upon Nicole’s blog, Keep Calm, It’s Life. Nicole is a parenting lifestyle blogger who shares her tips, knowledge, and stories about parenting and maintaining calmness. There is uniqueness in her voice, and knowledge in her words. Go and give her a follow / subscribe to her blog.
Being a mom with Anxiety is hard, but mix in some introverted traits, and you’ve got yourself a recipe for chaos.
