Peace and Joy

Posted by savannahkase on December 30, 2016 in Lessons From Little Ones, Parenting, Personal, Work/Life Balance |

It is almost automatic to wish friends, family, even strangers “peace and joy” at this time of year.  These conditions (for they are more than fleeting emotions) are universally regarded as among the most desirable things in the world.  More than just a Hallmark greeting, even the Bible repeatedly refers to these as the ultimate […]

Happy Birthday, (Not So) Baby!

Posted by savannahkase on January 21, 2016 in Lessons From Little Ones, Parenting, Personal |

  Three years ago today, my life changed forever with the birth of my son.  He made me a mother on January 20, 2013, but every day since he has made me a better person.  I have painstakingly taught him to count and to dress himself, but he has taught me to how to brush […]

New Year, Old Me

Posted by savannahkase on January 11, 2016 in Current Events, Personal, Woman Power, Work/Life Balance |

Over the last month, like many others around the world, I have been pondering what resolutions I should make going into 2016.  After rejecting at least a dozen as unrealistic (exercising 30 minutes a day), inconsequential (quitting my decades-old nail-biting habit), or just silly (learning to hula hoop), I started wondering why I felt so […]

Happy Hectic-Days!

Posted by savannahkase on December 11, 2015 in Current Events, Lessons From Little Ones, Mom & Dad Dynamics, Parenting, Uncategorized |

I have always loved the holidays. Really, what’s not to love? Good food, time with family and friends, vacations, shiny decorations, presents, holiday parties, Christmas carols . . . peace, joy, and love all around, right? This year, for the first time in my life, I am beginning to see the other side of Christmas […]

Independence is Over-Rated

Posted by savannahkase on July 8, 2015 in Advice, Parenting, Personal, Uncategorized, Woman Power, Work/Life Balance, Working Mom |

I’ve been thinking a lot about independence lately. As a synonym for “self-determination,” independence seems like a worthy aspiration for any individual or entity. Every child struggles to demonstrate self-sufficiency; even my toddler vehemently declares “I do it” when there is no chance he can carry the heavy grocery bag or fix a broken toy. […]

Cousins!

Posted by savannahkase on December 13, 2014 in Parenting, Personal, Pregnancy |

“God made us cousins because he knew our moms couldn’t handle us both!” – Unknown Siblings are one of life’s greatest blessings; my sister has been a lifelong best friend, playmate, confidant, teammate, supporter, and inspiration. Still, even the closest brothers and sisters experience unavoidable rivalries and jealousies due to competition for family resources and […]

30 Things I’m Thankful For

Posted by savannahkase on November 27, 2014 in Parenting, Personal |

Happy Thanksgiving!  My family’s holiday tradition is to begin our decadent supper by going around the table and each saying what we’re grateful for, so I always try to spend a little time ruminating on my bountiful blessings in advance.  This year, I thought I would challenge myself to come up with thirty discrete things […]

The Other Side of Christmas

Posted by savannahkase on December 16, 2013 in Parenting, Personal |

Growing up, I loved Christmas. I suspect most kids do, and for mostly the same reasons. December brings the second longest school break of the year, often filled with a vacation to see far-flung family. Before that there are all the holiday parties, school pageants, shopping, music and dance recitals, cookie-baking, Santa visits, caroling, holiday […]
