Happy 2nd Birthday Remy Bea // PLUS a Gift Card Giveaway

January 22, 2018

Oh, my spirited little girl… Admittedly, I did not quite understand what ‘other parents’ meant when they said they had spirited children. I thought, “Spirited?!

Explore Ohio // Kent

January 17, 2018

Real Talk: I despise the stomach bug.

November 7, 2017

Real Talk: Every single time I have a good grasp on life, a plan of action, and a mission, something goes terribly, terribly, and unexpectedly, wrong. I know that this phenomenon is not something that I, alone, suffer from. I mean, I know it’s just life. But, damn!, the stomach bug has the worst way […]

Happy Birthday Baby Ari //

October 16, 2017

It’s hard to believe that this day has arrived — my first baby, Ari, is no longer a baby in any sense of the term. Today he turns 5. I’m so sad and so happy. He’s turning into such a wonderful little boy. But it’s certainly bittersweet to say goodbye to the baby years of […]

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 […]
