• This weekend, I was at a party and someone asked me "So what exactly is cc&mike?" I laughed and then I pondered. The truth is, I don't know exactly what it is yet, and that's ok. Only time will tell. But for now...It's our little creative corner of the world; it's a place to enjoy shared interests with my sisters and others; it's a place to grab a recipe or read a story; it's a place to perhap

  • Meet one of my big sisters - Rhesa Storms. She's pretty amazing. She has a laugh that will light up a room. She is intelligent and witty and beautiful and extremely talented. I've been telling her for years that she needs to sell her photographs and thank goodness, I finally convinced her to join me on this journey of selling our pictures as print art for home design. Rhesa lives in NYC with

  • I’m a mean mom and that’s perfectly fine with me. I’m not here to be my child’s best friend. It’s not my job to make their life easy or perfect or pain free. It’s my job to prepare them for life and then when the time comes, to let them go so they can live their life. I hope and pray that when the time comes for them to spread their wings and fly, they will be prepared for it. Part of that pr

  • I took little momma out for an impromptu 8 year old photo session for her birthday. Everyday I look at her and can't believe she's mine. I don't deserve her... no seriously, I don't. But I'm so thankful she's mine. She's the perfect blend of sweet but sassy. She cares about others more than herself. Her nickname perfectly suits her - little momma, because she's always mothering. She takes c

  • I’ve been thinking about the space between a lot lately and thinking about the space between has made me think about Indiana Jones.   Yes, Indiana Jones. (Quick side note -the above picture has absolutely nothing to do with the space between or Indiana Jones.  It’s just the view I was looking at when I wrote this post a few months ago on our beach trip that we took and being that I am

  • Tonight is the last night that I will sleep in the house that has been our home for the past 3 years and 9 months.  Sure I should be packing right now but instead I am writing this blog because I guess in a way, it’s my way of saying goodbye. We have moved a lot.  This will be our ninth move in eleven years of marriage to be exact.  However, there are three places that always stand out more

  • I want to be more like my nine year old. Easton Wade Miller.  He’s oh so far away from that 6 pound 12 ounce little baby that I held in my arms on the evening of March 15, 2005.  He is almost 5 feet tall and weighs nearly 100 pounds now.  He wears a size twelve.  Yes he is a big boy, but what amazes me most is how big his heart is. A few weeks ago I was talking to a mother of one of Easton&#

  • A long time ago I read a blog post about how “mothers are the memory keepers for their families.”  It inspired me.  I realized that if I didn’t write down our memories, if I didn’t record them, no one would.  They would be forgotten, as if they never even happened.  So I started the tradition of making a yearly book of all of our memories throughout the year.  Without a dou

  • First of all, I would like to publicly admit that I should be doing laundry instead of writing this post.  No, seriously.  We got back from our trip to the Cotton Bowl on Saturday and I still am not unpacked and my laundry room is a disaster zone.  But that can wait…. I would much rather write this blog post that was just inspired when I read my friend Holly’s blog post on her “WHYR

  • I’ve changed. There.  I said it. The peace and freedom I feel in accepting that is so beautiful that I want others to experience the same thing.  I want others to realize what it took me years to work through… CHANGE IS NOT A DIRTY WORD. This is my little family four years ago (photos by the amazing Alayna Benefield – www.rubyjewelstudio.com).  I look at my children and I realize how I expec
