Digging Deep in Motherhood // Opening Up About My Infant Feeding Journey

October 8, 2017

    From the moment Remy Bea was born, everything changed. Sure, that’s to be expected when having a second child; but I mean it in the way that my world was turned upside down — this child was unlike anything I could have ever imagined. But the one thing she was always good at […]

Living Like a Warrior with Hungry Howie’s //

October 6, 2017

  I’ve been a self-proclaimed ‘warrior’ well before I became a mom. In fact, ‘warrior’ was a term that was in my vocabulary every single day. I was attending daily yoga classes and felt strong as a humble-warrior to my practice. It was around the same time that I took my yoga practice off of […]

Anxiety and Kids: 5 Things I Am Doing To Raise Better Humans.

October 3, 2017

  I’ve been really struggling lately (hence, the quiet around these parts…). One of the reasons is because I have anxiety, and sometimes that anxiety rears it’s ugly head at inopportune times. My last serious bout of anxiety was in the wake of Remy Bea’s birth. But lately I’ve been paralyzed with a different kind […]

Life Lately // a Mom’s Tale of End of Summer

September 25, 2017

I’d be lying if I said things have been easy lately. The adjustment of Ari going back to school and me starting my new Fall schedule at work has definitely been a challenge; but also, life has just been… different. I’ve been quite reserved and close-mouthed. Because, well, I don’t have anything particularly upbeat to […]

Our Summer in Pictures

August 28, 2017

Guys – something amazing happened this Summer — we had fun — and I stepped a bit away from this here blog. I did, however, start posting all kinds of photos to my Instagram stories as a way of ‘photo-blogging’ my way through the summer months! In case you aren’t following me on Instagram (which, […]

Day Tripping // Louisville, Kentucky

August 14, 2017

Life has been hella crazy lately. I’d like to say we’ve been busy travelling the globe, but that would be semi inaccurate. I mean, we have been travelling the midwest rather thoroughly. 😛 😛 And one of the great things about living in the Midwest is that we can travel a few hours and be […]

The Blogger Burnout.

August 9, 2017

I have a confession: I’m a little burnt out. I realize my writing and posting has gotten further and further apart (like, often times a week to ten days), but it’s not for lack of ideas. Oh no, I have plenty of ideas and plenty of half-finished blog posts… …it’s for lack of enthusiasm. I’m. […]

When Breastfeeding Ends // a story of grief and pride

August 4, 2017

Disclaimer: I’m not advocating for only breastfeeding babies. Ultimately, it’s a very personal decision. I believe fed is best. Period. I’m just sharing my personal adventure with breastfeeding. This week is World Breastfeeding Week. And, if I’m being honest, my heart is hurting a little. See, I’m doing extended breastfeeding with Miss Bea. And, while I […]

Elevate, Play with Lark, SOAK, and Eat Local! // Embracing the Chaos

July 24, 2017

We’ve been so crazy busy lately that we’ve hardly had a chance to slow down. It’s my own fault, really. I’m a chronic over-scheduler. It’s a blessing and a curse, friends. It really is. See, I thrive on the crazy; I need the busy days. I need them because they make me feel accomplished. And […]

Accountability // Health + Fitness Update #2

July 11, 2017

It’s been a whole month since my first health + fitness update, so I guess it’s time for some accountability. Right? Ugh. Right. Here’s the thing — the scale? It’s only moved a tiny bit. Like, only a pound and a half lost in 4 weeks. But? I’ve gained strength + muscle and I’ve lost […]
