Here we are. We have made it to February, the time of year jam-packed with candy conversation hearts and romantic love. Who could have imagined last year, as we perused the pink teddy bear aisle at Target, that the...
Let’s be real. This winter has been different than the ones we're used to. This list of fun things to do with your family in KC during the colder months celebrates the familiar and suggests some pandemic-specific options, too....

101 Things to Do This Winter

It's no secret that this will be a long winter. Between the cold weather keeping us inside to COVID restrictions and safety considerations, the months ahead will no doubt be challenging. We have compiled a list of 101 ideas for...
If you read anything I wrote in the past, you probably already know I am a mom of four young children. When I signed up for virtual learning, it was what I thought was best for my kids and...
I miss my me-time. I bet a lot of you out there miss yours, too. I started a remote job in late August. And even though I chose to be remote so I could easily pick my kids up from school/daycare...
Dear 2020, I'm so mad at the memories you stole from me. Kindergarten graduation. Baseball games. Taking my oldest to spring training. A 14-day road trip. Afternoons at the movie theater. Friday nights at our favorite Mexican restaurant. In-person school....
Dear 2020, This is a letter to tell you we’re through.  It’s time.  I’m ready to move on.  The thing is, it’s not me...it’s you. You are the reason our time together has to end.  You’ve been unpredictable, irrational, disorienting, and unrelentingly harsh. You tried...
Dear 2020, Wow! You are about to head out of here, no longer the year, but a piece of the past that I will likely never forget. I feel like we need to have some closure, but I don’t even know...
Dear 2020, You should know that I’m not really a fan. I don’t think I’ll ever say “let me tell you about my favorite year…” and then jump into a humorous or heartwarming story about the last 12 months. It...
Dear 2020, I will never forget you. I am not sure anyone will ever forget you. Not even if we want to. You made “masks”, “social distancing” and “quarantine” the new buzz words. Your tests felt like someone was sticking...
Dear 2020, If we were in a relationship, I’d definitely say it’s complicated. You’re a year I didn’t see coming. One that left much heartache and sorrow in your wake. One that took so much from so many. One that...
Dear 2020,Now that you are leaving, I feel EXHAUSTED. I mean, what a roller coaster you had us on this year. Highs, lows, dips, twists and turns, and some nausea-inducing loops. And COVID-19 was only ONE of the life-altering...
After the backyard bonfires have sufficiently burned all of the well-meaning 2020 calendars into a pile of forgotten ashes, it will be time to jot down (only in pencil, mind you) our hopes, dreams and *gulp* resolutions for 2021. If...

Ringing in the New Year at Home

0
Well, I think it is safe to say that EVERYONE is ready to put 2020 to bed, right? Out with the old. In with the new. I have never felt the urge to ring in the new year more...
Depression. My comfy old companion. Like a rainy, grey-painted world outside my window every day when I wake up. A big blanket I keep wrapped around my shoulders much of the time. Have I thought about ridding myself of...
