For those who know me, they know that baking is not what I typically do when I want to relax. The flour everywhere, the sticky hands/counter/children, the steps. It just hasn't always been for me. ​​

Then I made a pie. A real, homemade apple pie. And it was delicious. S...

It's Good Friday. As we head into school break - which feels utterly bizarre in the current state - the girls are planning how to make the most of it by choosing a different place to 'camp out' each night in the house. It lifts my spirits to see them bonding like this....

I'm trying my best to be as smooth as Tennessee Whiskey but

I'm feeling a bit more like the worm in a bottle of tequila. Can I get an amen?

I think one of the biggest challenges through all of this is remembering to not only take care of myself mentally but also to be su...

Week one of distance learning is coming to a close here at the Davidsons. We made it through with a few meltdowns but mostly smiles as we navigated this new world together.

I have started exercising! I've never liked to exercise. When I was kid, my friends would want to run around outside. I, however, much preferred the confines of my house to the great outdoors.

Don't get me wrong, I love being out in nature. I love to camp, hike, boat an...

My inner artist and I have an interesting relationship. Sometimes we're besties, other times mortal enemies. The relationship is never boring but it can get a bit stagnant at times. 

Now is one of those times.

I don't think I've written a song in months. Maybe even...

In this day and age of so many options to communicate, it's easy to feel like no one is listening. Take this blog, for example. I keep writing these posts and I have no idea who - aside from my awesome mom - is reading it. 

How do we combat this feeling of detachme...

I'm prepping for a gig for the first time in a long time. It feels good, but it also feels burdensome. Why? Because I feel like I've been playing the same songs for way too long but I don't have the time to re-work my set.

But that is total bullshit. 

The fact is, I DO h...
