Family, When Saying No Is Not An Option


Life of Leigh

The past couple of weekends have been super busy.  We have been on the go non stop.  But, who cares when you’re spending time with family?  Thanks to Walmart grocery pick up I still managed to get food on the table.  But, our schedule was still out of whack.  Surprisingly, I wasn’t upset or bothered […]

A Lesson in Thankfulness


Life of Leigh

Our night time routine does not change.   8 o’clock is bedtime.  Because I always have, my boys expect me to tuck them in.  Simply saying “Goodnight, go to bed” doesn’t always work.  Before they lay their head on the pillow we say our prayers.  First, we recite The Lord’s Prayer.  Then, they take turns saying […]

Holiday Recap


Life of Leigh

Before December came, I was on a mission to make this the best Christmas yet.  I had planned a different event for every weekend.  I mapped out all the activities I wanted to do with my boys.  There were so many Christmas treats I wanted to bake with them.  It was going to be perfect.  […]

New Year, Same Me


Life of Leigh

The start of a new year is the beginning of things to come.  A moment in time where all things seem possible.  A reset if you will.  The clock strikes 12 and everyone proclaims that they will now be healthier, wiser, spend less money, save more money, have better relationships, travel more and be an […]
