Are the Twos Terrible, Or Am I?

I haven’t written a post in a while because I have felt pretty uninspired lately. My creative juices just haven’t been flowing like they used to, and I’m attributing that to the twos–specifically my two who are two.

Twin Hacks

I’m a sucker for a good life hack. Discover a trick to organizing shoes (to make more room for me to buy more)? I’m all ears. Uncover a ground-breaking way to make the laundry process more efficient? Lay it on me. Have a clever technique to fold the tortilla with all its contents perfectly? Let…

Monthly Dose of Oxygen

Flight attendants tell you that, in the event things go south, you should put your oxygen mask on before helping others. After our last flight, this got me thinking. Well, my first thought was, wow if you really think about those instructions, that’s really cutthroat and it’s every man for themselves here (see ya at…
