A Love Letter to My Sweaters

Dear Sweaters, Thank you. Your knit yarns of polyester, cotton, and even cashmere (treat yo’self, mamas!) envelop me in the best ways. I love your versatility. Not only do you keep my warm and comfy and cozy, but you can make leggings and a T-shirt look dressy. You can take an outfit from “did I […]

Trading Places

You can ask me my favorite place in the world and without hesitation I will answer Playa del Carmen in Quintana Roo, Mexico. The Mayan Riviera. Turquoise waters that deepen to a beautiful shade of sapphire. Sugar white sand. Fresh coconuts and bananas. Amazing seafood. Vibrant embroidered floral dresses and fresh guacamole.  But I discovered the […]

Hanging Up My Heels

  Tuesday, September 26, 2017. The day my life changed forever. It didn’t change in one of those dramatic ways, like a baby being born, a marriage, or losing a loved one. This was a more subtle, but equally Earth-shaking, revelation. On this day, my husband got a promotion at work. A promotion that meant […]

Confidently Ourselves: Friendship in Your 30’s

While having lunch with friends, the topic turned to our lives. While we aren’t in the exact same spot, we are all hovering around some specific things: Staring 30 in the face. And maybe some gray hair or new wrinkles. Some of us has already reached this milestone, some of us are about to, and […]

For the Last Time

“There’s a last time for everything,” crooned Brad Paisley from my satellite radio. I immediately set an alert for the song, being a fan of both Brad Paisley and intentional, meaningful songwriting. I didn’t realize the first time I heard this song earlier this summer how it would be the perfect soundtrack to this phase […]

The Reflux Rundown

 – 20 minutes elevated after a feeding is 20 minutes. Not 15, not 19, but TWENTY WHOLE MINUTES.  Don’t think you can cheat on this.  You will be sorely mistaken.  – Don’t you dare move that baby at all during those 20 minutes so that their head drops below their body level unless you want […]

Everyone Has a Breaking Point

  I remember the day so vividly.  Sitting in my doctor’s office, saying “I just can’t do it anymore.  Everything makes me mad.  EVERYTHING.  And if I’m not mad, I’m crying, or I have no feeling whatsoever.”  It was all or nothing – extremes.  “I’m mad at my toddler when she does normal toddler things.  […]

When Heaven Knocks

  I lost my maternal grandfather 6 weeks before I married my husband in 2012, on the day I was supposed to have my bridal portraits taken. To say that we were close was an understatement. My granddad was unable to work due to a heart condition, so he was my babysitter from the time […]

My Baby Is Growing Up

I can’t recall the exact moment where I first noticed the difference. But today, while you were falling asleep for your nap, the nap where you asked me to lay down with you, I looked at your peaceful face and saw a child. Not a baby. Yes, you have the same curly hair and thick, […]

Colic Changed Our Lives

As a new mom, everything is scary and overwhelming. Blame it on hormones, blame it on being thrust into a full-time job that no amount of babysitting, being a sibling, or reading can prepare you for, blame it on sleep deprivation, blame it on the phase of the moon, whatever suits your logic. But you […]
