Are We There Yet?

Are We There Yet?

We’ve been in this weird season of storm that has replaced late spring and early summer. While there is the good, ample rain and coolish temperatures (remember that year we hit our first 100 degree day in May??) and a drought that is no more; but the bad news, as we are all aware, has been a string of giant, dangerous storms.

Making Memories: Memorial Day

Making Memories: Memorial Day

Something I learned from my dad was to find joy in those around you. My dad was stoic, to put it mildly; but when we would have family gatherings (and we have a large family with seven kids), you would see how happy he was to have us all together.

That was my bank. The 7-11 where I buy gas. The hospital where I take my kids to see their pediatrician. The bank where I cashed a check at just after 2pm. The bowling alley where we held my daughter's birthday party.

A Guide to a Less Than Perfect Life

Of course, when I think of Gabrielle Reece, I think of all we have in common. You know, Gabrielle Reece, the gorgeous beach volleyball player and model married to the hot surfer, living the dream life in Hawaii with her family?

These past two years have been the most introspective years of my life. Struggling with the grieving process, much of my time was spent stalled in the anger phase. It’s not pleasant, and it’s not a fun place to live, but it’s necessary. Or at least it was for me.

About This Blog

Hi! I’m Mari Farthing and I’m a mother, wife and freelance writer and editor living in Moore. Originally from Wisconsin and formerly the editor of MetroFamily, my husband Tony and I made our home in Oklahoma via orders from the USAF after spending years living in Germany and Washington DC. When Tony retired from active duty in 2011, we became official “Oklahomies.” I’m a former multitasker and current work-at-home mom, which sometimes is an exercise in futility. I am interested in books, music, knitting, running, cooking, laughing and writing and occasionally I get bored and add a few more interests to fill up the final 15 minutes of my day.

I sometimes succeed, sometimes fail, and consistently rewrite the to-do list that manages my day.
