I tend to overthink things, as many women do. I have wasted a lot of time worrying about what others think of me. The truth is, for a long time, I have wanted to be liked, really badly. The thought of someone not liking me made me itchy. With such an intense need to be...

When I first had Mary Clare I was constantly wondering, “when will I feel like myself again?” At first, it feels like you’ll never do the things you did before, ever again. Like you’ll never go out to dinner or shopping or to the gym again or like I don’t know, ever ge...

This new year Rob and I committed to more home cooked meals (read: less take out) and to making meals that are flavorful, delicious and made from whole foods. We really didn't want to go on a typical restrictive, miserable January diet that lasts 4 weeks before going b...

Next week, we are flying south for a few weeks! 

My parents spend a few winter months in Florida so we are going down to visit! I'm really excited to see my parents, it's been over a month which for me is a long time! However, in order to get some warm sun on our faces...

A lot has changed since baby arrived - body and wardrobe included. This post is not focused on body changes. We all have our own unique journey. What I know for sure is that you are a Goddess that grew and birthed a human. Wear clothes makes you feel good! So yes, my d...

Who doesn't love to cozy up with their little one and a favorite book? As an on-hiatus kindergarten teacher, I'm kind of obsessed with reading and literacy. My mom read to me every night as a kid. Some of my favorite books to this day ("Number the Stars" and "Trumpet o...

Let's face it, during those first couple of weeks with baby you will be in complete survival mode. I had lots of expectations and best laid plans and that all went to...well shit once this little baby arrived. For one, I was not planning to introduce the bottle or paci...

We didn’t find out Mary Clare was a girl until we met her for the first time and it was one of the best decisions we made during my pregnancy. Most people were surprised I wasn’t going to find out because I’m pretty type A and dare I say a little controlling. Some peop...
