T-minus 33 days (hopefully) until our newest family addition will make his appearance into the world. This, in other words, means I am a hormonal, waddling mess who happens to look like I am smuggling a watermelon under my shirt everywhere I go while attempting to look put together. It's fabulous, really. In all seriousness, I … Continue reading The Unspoken Guilt
Seriously. Where did the first month of the year go?! I don't know how many times I thought to myself about things I wanted to write about and then...just never did. I don't even have any good reasons as to why not! Seems silly when writing can be so therapeutic to me; there is something … Continue reading Goals Check-in: How is it Already February?!
Those are two words I never truly imagined putting together, lonely and motherhood. Being a mom means being surrounded, always...right?

I wouldn’t have classified myself as a chronic complainer … Continue reading Gratitude 2.0

Be honest. I'm not judging. Delight in the beauty that surrounds you. Ok lovelies. I've come to a conclusion. Nothing groundbreaking here, but something that many … Continue reading Delight in the Beauty that Surrounds You

This "fight" is so popular that is actually has a name. It's often referred to as the Mommy Wars but I believe it extends far … Continue reading The Battle
New 1) Not existing before; made, introduced, or discovered recently or now for the first time 2) Already exists but seen, experienced, or acquired recently or now for the first time So much of this describes me, where I am right now. It's 2015...a new year! I'm a new (ish) parent. A new stay at home mom. … Continue reading Hello there, new.
