Mary Clare becomes busier by the day. Since she started walking, she hasn't really stopped.

She is an explorer through and through. Keeping her occupied has become quite the task. She gets antsy and even throws a little bit of a tantrum if we hang around the house for t...

Mary Clare turned one a week ago and it was a wonderful day. She slept in until 7:30 am and we had breakfast together. I put her crown on which she promptly took right off. I should have seen that coming! In the evening, we had some family over for pizza, cupcakes and...

You may have heard the very exciting news that our family is growing by one more, this coming March 2019!  I am thrilled to be pregnant but it took a lot hard work for me to honestly feel that way. So I'm pulling back the curtain behind the ridiculously cute photo of m...

Just please stop telling me how many summers I have left with my kid. Stop telling me to “enjoy every second.” Please. I get your sentiment, I know your intention is good but frankly, you’re making us all feel like shit.

From jewelry to home decor and everywhere in between, we are seeing the tassel trend pop up all over the place. I don't know about you but I'm very into all things tassels! Tassels are synonymous with that easy going summer feel and I'm all for it.

During the week, I'm...

Parenting is the wildest ride out there. It is deeply complex and at times can be terrifying. Yet it brings the greatest love and joy I have ever felt. Raising a girl is a responsibility so vast and so important that it knocks the wind out of me. I have a vision of who...

The bedtime routine had become just that, incredibly routine. I often find myself wanting to get through it so I can make dinner, wash the dishes and veg on the couch. But last night, for some reason, (as cheesy as it sounds) I laid my head on the edge of the tub and a...

HI GUYS! I promise I’m not ignoring you, in the past month or so I have had some big shifts professionally and at home. It has me reconfiguring how I spend my time. I am so glad that everything has been positive and we are happily figuring it out.

So the biggest change...

Since I have had Mary Clare, I've gotten to know other new moms both in real life and via social media. I have noticed that within the new mom community "losing the baby weight" or "getting your body back" are hot button topics. It's no surprise, I mean, the culture of...

UPDATE: this is a more detailed version of my birth story. While it is not extremely graphic, it is still a birth story.

Childbirth was hands down the most exhilarating experience of my life. Was it painful? Well of course and yes I had an epidural! Thoug...

I'm so glad you're here!


Motherhood is as hard as it is beautiful. The vision is for this to be a space where moms relate to one another, laugh together and share the experience of motherhood. Let's support one another on this wild ride.
