Living in an apartment we don’t have a #fireplace to hang the stockings by, or to sit by the #christmastree and listen to the fire crackle while watching the flames dance. But thanks to @netflix I can pretend! 😂
AD: Holidays with kids aren't always so merry and bright. Schedules are all over the place. Travel and being confined to a car seat is enough to make everyone grumpy.

Remember how I said that today I was going to fill your feed with snippets of my day? Life doesn’t always go as planned. You see, my brother is in the hospital all the way in KY and I’m in CO and it’s hard. Because of several complications and going into a-fib last night, I didn’t couldn’t sleep. It all feels heavy. Like I’m trying to push on and do what I have to do to get through the day, but I’m walking through molasses. This morning all I could muster after getting the kids to school was a trip to the grocery store. But no eye contact was made because I could feel the tears just under the surface. If anyone asked how I was doing or if I had to talk to anyone, the tears would have fallen uncontrollably. So I was the crazy lady today in the grocery store not looking at anyone. 😂 #fortheloveofeveryday#beautyinthemess#silentstruggles

AD: Picture this. At Kindergarten pick-up yesterday, there was snow on the ground. All the parents were dressed in their snow boots, winter coats, hats, gloves. They were bundled up and chatting with each other like it was a warm, Summer day and everything was cheery. They were warm. Then you have me. Fleece jacket and canvas shoes. It was freezing and my feet were cold from chasing the three-year-old through the snow-covered grass. While I could get away with fleece jackets and canvas shoes in North Carolina, that is not Colorado winter apparel. Learning to stay cozy during the winter months isn't that hard, but you have to be prepared. Click the link in the profile to read how to stay cozy this winter with @quaker , even in Colorado. #millersbatch#quaker
