Hello friends! Hope you had a fabulous Easter weekend and a wonderful week. Here’s my recap:

We are at peak Egg Hunt ages in our house, and had at least three different searches throughout the day on Easter. We had a great time dyeing eggs, opening Easter baskets, and running wildly through the backyard looking for eggs hidden by the Easter Bunny himself. I am thinking he may regret having set the bar so high four years ago. Just a thought.

HerStoriesHerStories continued with two really wonderful essays. On Monday, I featured Carisa Miller’s unique and captivating essay, Leslie and Me. Jessica featured Christine Woodruff’s story, A Dog, Two Families, and Amy, an incredibly poignant essay that I found moved me to tears. Check them both out if you haven’t already.


I also shared a story of my six year old daughter defending my honor, with Maybe Mommy Isn’t So Mean After All.

Then I co-hosted Finish the Sentence Friday- the sentence this week was, “A typical day in my life looks like…” I decided I’d share a bit of my “other life” with you guys, and included an essay I wrote awhile back about my job as a music therapist and early childhood music teacher. Read more here-  Why I Won’t Quit My Day Job.

I had an ulterior motive, though- this week I launched my new website for my music classes, Music With Miss Stephanie. Stop by and see what I do for my “real job.”

Then I had writer’s remorse and wished I’d used a different post- stay tuned this week for my follow up to “A Day in the Life”.

Here are a few other highlights from my week:
