mental health


November 30, 2017

I’ve gone back and forth about publishing this since the original #MeToo movement started. Truthfully, there are about a million other holiday-themed posts I should be posting right now. But this is just too important to put off for any longer. A part of me hasn’t wanted to share this story because, well, it’s hard […]

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 […]

Weekly Mantra

February 8, 2016

This week my mantra is simple, but it may be, perhaps, my mantra for the rest of the year. ♥ I’ve mentioned before just how different I feel, postpartum, this time around. But perhaps this time around, I’m also a little wiser. Or perhaps it just comes with age… I don’t know for certain. But […]

A PSA to our friends + family // It’s not you, it’s me.

January 13, 2016

It’s not you. It’s us. Well technically, it’s both. This may be the most uncomfortable blog post I’ve ever written. But here it goes: We will not be accepting visitors for a few days after this baby is born. If you’re nodding but saying “Surely, she doesn’t mean ME, though“. Sadly, yes. Let me explain: […]

the power of “NO.”

December 18, 2015

It’s taken me a long time, and a lot of years, to realize that I had the power to say “no.” A few years ago I had a goal of saying “yes” to everything I was asked to participate in for two weeks or something like that. But that was pre-kids, pre-marriage, etc. Life was […]

but wait! there’s more!

November 18, 2015

Because just when you think “nothing else can happen,” something does. Like picking up your prescription and rear ending a girl leaving Target during her lunch break. Yep. That happened. Luckily [and yes, there really is a silver lining here], neither car was damaged — at all! However, I kinda hit her hard. Moosh and […]

i am my own worst enemy // but it will all be okay

September 23, 2015

Sometimes I get in my own head. I start to panic because it’s pretty much the worst place to spend a significant amount of time. I am THE BEST at doomsday scenarios, in every facet of my life. Seriously. I can jump from nothing to worst case scenario in 2 seconds flat. It’s a horrible […]

the art of juggling // TFAWM an update of sorts

April 9, 2015

Guys. Let’s just cut to the chase: It sucks. Working and being the mom of a toddler sucks the big one. It’s exhausting. And I constantly feel pulled in a thousand different directions. And it is the fault of no one. It just is the life of a mom. Because moms put that kind of […]

post-holiday blues //

January 13, 2015

I know darn well I’m not alone with the post-holiday blues. As stressful as Christmas can be, there is also so much hustle, bustle and genuine cheer, it also does a good job of compounding the stress. And then, January. Dreaded, dreaded, January. After New Years it seemed like the weather got the memo and turned […]
