Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
After an exhaustive 2009, my husband and I have taken a leap of faith and readjusted our priorities. So in the midst of the greatest economic downturn since the Great Depression and with nothing more than prayer, a humble savings and a promise from my parents that they will finish off their basement so we will never go homeless, I quit my full-time-full-salaried-full-benefits-with-a-big-girl-office-and-even-a-window job. (And yes, every time I read this sentence I have a mini panic attack punctuated by one medium sized dry heave. There, I’m better now.)
What is your blogging philosophy?
Writing from an honest place is my first priority. I'm a blended family mom and a thirty something woman going through the infertility process. Life is not perfect - but in that imperfection an honest reflection can bring blessings and beauty.
I have been blogging since...

On Mother’s Day, Owen ran a fever of 101.8 so I kept him out of

school on Monday. He recovered quickly, only to learn the age-old,

Hi from The Girlz Korner in upstate New York. My blog offers light, witty articles on every topic imaginable and was created over a year ago. I truly designed my blog simply for the joy of sharing info. and never expected it to take off the way it has. I also never thought of adding a Followers section until now and because of all the awesome blogs listed here, I'd love to offer my readers the opportunity of connecting with you as well. So please ... come on over and see me some time. Have a great weekend.

Ask any pregnant woman and she will tell you that now she’s expecting what once smelled delicious  - like roasting coffee beans for example, has suddenly become the one smell that induces an overwhelming feeling of nausea. For some women the pregnant nose goes into smell overdrive…

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
